Hello, sauerkraut. I’m going to eat you now.

AIP Beef Tacos

Growing up, we would choose our favorite for dinner on our birthdays. We do the same in our home now. I remember choosing tacos fairly often as a kid. They’re just so dang satisfying and tasty!!

Pre-paleo {read: kosher and pre-Bugsy}, our itty bitty family would enjoy what we called “Blue Tacos”. We’d load up organic blue corn tortilla shells with glatt beef, carrots, bell pepper, onions, cumin, romaine, tomato, and cilantro. They were pretty incredible and we still talk about them even now.

So when I set out to satisfy that longing for tacos again {AIP-style of course} I made sure I left no stone unturned.

Essential oils certainly are a hot topic. Some people are genuinely curious about their benefits and how they might fit into their life. Then there’s the MLM bait and switch “message me for more info” crew. And there are the skeptics. The Mister tends to be skeptical, which I appreciate. Along the way though I think he’s experienced and seen how essential oils have their place in our home.

Enter “Thieves” oil. Yes, I used quotes.

I personally use this oil in a variety of ways in our home. In this post I’ll share a Four Thieves Oil Blend that you can easily make yourself {which is super cost effective, especially if you already have a number of the oils on hand} and give you examples of how I use this in our home.

The first time I made this hash, it was a hot mess. I’ll spare you that photo. *cough*

Oh, but the flavors!!

Let’s be real here, we all know sometimes the ugliest food can be the ones you make again. And again…

Coping with Loss

In life we learn to take the good with the bad. Roll with the punches, dust ourselves off, and keep going. All things considering, I’ve been fortunate to not have had an enormous amount of loss or tragedy in my life.

That’s not to say that I haven’t experienced excruciating goodbyes. From losing grandparents to my father’s death about ten years ago {really? it’s been that long?}. My grandma passed when I was eighteen, that was the hardest loss I had experienced at that point in my life. But it wasn’t until my father’s passing that I began “my way” of coping.

Take a Hike!

I’ve always loved a good hike, although I prefer them to be casual. Up until he met me The Mister, being an Eagle scout and all, had always hiked everything in on his camping trips, while I was raised with what he calls “car camping” and went on hikes near the campsite. ;)

With the temperatures finally warming up in our area, we’ve been getting outside as much as we can. Whether it’s playing at the creek, a playground, or just going for walks. On the weekends though, getting outside means taking a hike.
