Coffee, Dijon + Maple Slow Cooker Pork (gf, df)

This is the holy trinity right here - coffee, maple syrup and dijon mustard.  It's everything you need to make a delicious multi purpose pork in your beloved slow cooker.  It's perfect for filling tacos, sautéing with zoodles, making a eggs and kale skillet, adding protein to salads, using in a bbq type of sandwich... so many options.  We served this to friends at a taco night dinner get together and it was a big hit.  Perfect for fall and so easy.  

We keep the leftovers in the fridge and heat up in a little skillet, as needed.

Anti Inflammatory Chicken

How aren't I going to eat this chicken?  I'm thinking over salad or cauliflower rice.  In lettuce wraps or even normal wraps if I wasn't in my first phase of Auto Immune Protocol.  Celery, parsley and turmeric are all great for lowering inflammation.  This chicken made the past week really easy.  It was great having a batch of flavorful, versatile shredded chicken around.  AIP is no joke. You gotta be prepared with a well stocked fridge at all times unless you're ok with serious HANGER.  I am not. Thus, this chicken:
