I thought I would share with you all one of our favorite healthy, nutrient dense meals. Most of you know that we are following a Ketogenic diet to assist Kicker's body in getting rid of the cancer. You can read more about that here. Many people assume that eating this way is likely boring, too bland, or maybe too complicated. This delicious recipe will prove all of those assumptions wrong and make an ass out of u and me….get it, assume….never mind, I will get back to whats for dinner.
