Slow Cooker Short Ribs

I know what you are thinking… slow cooking is a Fall or Winter cooking method; however, I LOVE slow cooking in the summer because I can fill my slow cooker the night before. In the morning I take the shell out of the fridge and turn my slow cooker on (remember to plug it in! lol… I forgot to plug it in once!). Then I can go on an adventure with my boys, go fishing, go on a bike ride, go to the zoo and I can come home to a lovely smelling home and a delicious meal. I also love that slow cooking doesn’t heat up the house!

The best thing about this meal is that I didn’t have to go to the store for anything!  I had Butcherbox Ribs in my freezer, Pili Nut butter in my pantry, Kettle and Fire broth in my pantry! I get just about everything delivered to me so I can focus on doing things I enjoy on my free time!

“Hi Maria,

I wanted to share; Because of the transformation Keto made for my husband and me, so many of my friends on Facebook keep sending me messages wanting to know about it. I am posting Maria’s book The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse for all to see. 

Our bodies and well being can be an advertisement board! Everyone needs to know the truth about food and health! I had started off Paleo in beginning then switched Keto. Wow! Instant change for the better. People are amazed that we are in our 70’s and so healthy and active. Thank you Maria and Craig! My biggest size was size 18. I am now in size 4. I wasn’t that small as a child. If I did it anyone can! It’s the easiest journey I ever took! ” – Lillian
