Rachel from Grok Grub stopped by to share an AMAZING recipe with us today: bacon garlic short-rib loaded sweet potatoes. Yeah, you read that right! The best part is that you use your slow cooker for the meat, which makes this a great meal to make when you are pressed for time! It features satisfying healthy fats and nourishing bone broth and is a recipe that I expect to become a staple in my own kitchen. Enjoy!!
In December 2009, I was 25 years old and weighed 210 lbs. I was obese for my 5'5" frame, never felt well, and was popping handfuls of pills every day just to get by. I was taking anti-depressants, anxiolytics, prescription sleeping pills, courses of Prilosec once or twice a month, acid-blocking pills or antacid tablets 1-3 times a day, anti-diarrhea pills several days a week, and I was constantly catching respiratory infections and frequently took courses of antibiotics.
