I decided to try a new recipe for beef spare ribs, which is to throw them in the slow cooker.
The following is needed:
3 bell peppers(green, yellow, red)
1 Red Onion
1 package of spare ribs, beef or pork whatever you prefer.
Season as desired( salt, ground pepper, etc)
place all vegetables in the slow cooker with 1-1.5 cups of water.
Add ribs, and wait 6-7 hours hours, and there you have it.

After a brief hiatus from training and dieting, I decided to jump bag to the Paleo diet this week. I will attempt to keep a food journal of what I`m eating this time around. That being said, here are my meals for today.
Breakfast : (Homemade vegetable juice)
1/4 of a lemon slice
1/2 of an orange slice
I was impressed with the flavor, wasn't bitter at all.
1 Turkey Hamburger Patty Grilled
3 Grilled Chicken Wings
1 Red Apple

I was originally sent this recipe from my friend Terita on twitter, thanks again T. This recipe was over on the PaleoMama site, along with several other great Paleo diet recipes. I modified mine just a little, and it turned out pretty good.
Here is the recipe, I put my modifications out to the side..
2 lbs lean ground beef (I look for 90/10) *ground turkey*
1 large steak cut into chunks (or stew meat, whatever you prefer)* no steak at all*
1 large can crushed tomatoes (look for the one where the only ingredient is tomatoes)
1 can diced tomatoes and chilis (again, look for natural here)
1 small can tomatillo salsa (in the Mexican food aisle, look for natural ingredients in this)
large onion diced
1/8 cup almond flour (this is optional for thickening, omit if you have a nut allergy) *I chose to omit *
about 2 cups of beef broth
3 cloves garlic minced or about
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbs ground cumin
3-4 tbs chili powder
I also added celery, mushrooms and carrots for a little added flavor

The modern dietary regimen known as the Paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is anutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various human species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet. Centered on commonly available modern foods, the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of grass-fed pasture raised meats, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.
First popularized in the mid 1970s by gastroenterologist Walter L. Voegtlin, this nutritional concept has been promoted and adapted by a number of authors and researchers in several books and academic journals. A common theme in evolutionary medicine, Paleolithic nutrition is based on the premise that modern humans are genetically adapted to the diet of their Paleolithic ancestors and that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture, and therefore that an ideal diet for human health and well-being is one that resembles this ancestral diet. Proponents of this diet argue that modern human populations subsisting on traditional diets allegedly similar to those of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers are largely free of diseases of affluence, and that two small prospective studies of the Paleolithic diet in humans have shown some positive health outcomes. Supporters point to several potentially therapeuticnutritional characteristics of allegedly preagricultural diets.
This dietary approach is a controversial topic amongst nutritionists and anthropologists, and an article on the National Health Service of England Choices website suggests that it may be a fad diet. Critics have argued that if hunter gatherer societies failed to suffer from "diseases of civilization", this was due to a lack of calories in their diet, or a variety of other factors, rather than because of some special diet composition. Some researchers have taken issue with the accuracy of the diet's underlying evolutionary logic, and have disputed certain dietary recommendations and restrictions on the grounds that they provide no health benefits or pose health risks and are not likely to accurately reflect the features of ancient Paleolithic diets.
