RCFP's 60 Day Paleo Challenge(12 posts) (6 voices)
does whey or progenix cost points?
Whey does. Only PROGENEX is allowed. I explained why on the post.
hey Daniel where's the link to the spreadsheet?
What's the scoop on baking powder/soda? Is it okay or not okay during the challenge?
Got a homemade Larabar recipe from Lisa Gawley (Andrew & Lisa are part time RCFP volunteer staff). Super yummy, easy to make and a great alternative to crack bars:
Dried apricots (maybe 8)
Dried blueberries/cherries/cranberries/dates/etc (any dried fruit you want - try to get ones with minimal sugar! Use about a handful of them)
1 to 2 cups unsweetened coconut
raw sunflower seeds
Put things into a food processor and blend away! Then, add a few tablespoons of honey to make it all stick together. You can add the honey while still blending in the food processor.
Place mixture in a pan on parchment or wax paper & freeze until hard. Then cut into chunks. Excellent for on the go.

CrockPot Pulled Pork
4 Lb bone in pork shoulder
4 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
2 Tbsp Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Chili Powder
2 Tbsp Ground Cumin
1 Tbsp Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
1 Tbsp Ground White Pepper
2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Full batch of my Beasty BBQ Sauce
Mix all of the above ingredients except the pork shoulder and the BBQ sauce in a small mixing bowl, mix it all well making your spice rub
Massage the spice rub all over the meat in every crevice you can find
Wrap tightly in a double wrap of plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, I did mine overnight. You can refrigerate this for up to 3 days
Unwrap the roast and place it in your crock pot, add 1/4 Cup of water and turn your crock pot on low and cook for 8-10 hours until the meat is fork-tender
Transfer your roast to a cutting board and discard all the liquid in your crock pot
Pull the meat apart by tearing the meat into thin shreds with two forks or your fingers
Place all the shredded meat back in the crock pot and toss with a full batch of my Beasty BBQ Sauce and heat on low for 60 minutes until hot.
Serve and enjoy
