Paleo Recipe Round-up

You will find TONS of recipes. Tonight I made 100% grass-fed tenderloins with the Sunshine Sauce. This was outstanding and will be a staple with grilled meats this summer! I didn’t have the chili-garlic sauce, so I just threw in an extra clove of crushed garlic and chili powder….amazing taste.

Veggies: Roasted red bell peppers and green beans with olive oil, turmeric, chili powder, sea salt. The dipping sauce went with this as well, so good!

A successful Sectional WOD #2 for Jared and Beth this Saturday!
