Paleo Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops… MealFit Style

This was Stupid Easy!
Literally took less than 20 min. Both of my kids, (4 Years old and 2 years old) ate 2 servings of both the Pork Chops and the Apples and Onions.
So, here it is. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops

• 4 Boneless Pork Chops
• 2 Apples
• 1 Small Onion
• ¼ cup White Wine (cooking wine is fine)
• 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil, divided
• Cinnamon, to taste
• Salt, to taste
• Black Pepper, to taste

Instructions
1. Season with cinnamon, salt, and pepper on both sides of the pork chops. Rub the seasoning into the pork chops. Set aside.
2. Cut the apple in half and then thinly slice it 9 (TAKE OUT THE CORE)
3. Thinly slice the onions as well.
4. Heat 2 Tbsp of the coconut oil in a large skillet over Medium heat and add the apples and onions. Saute for 5 minutes or until the apples are tender but still a little crisp.
5. Remove the apples and onions from the pan and set aside.
6. Add the last tbsp of coconut oil to the skillet.
7. Place the pork chops in the skillet and do not move. Sear the chops for about 2 minutes on each side.
8. Add the wine to the pan and just bring the wine to a boil and cook 2-3 min.
9. Add the apple and Onion mixture back to the pan, cover and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes (depending on the thickness of your pork chops, it might need more or less time).
10. Serve the pork chops with the apple/onion mixture piled on top

The New Breakfast: 3FU3L & Unscared Coffee

“UNSCARED” Coffee

I get this question all the time: “What do you eat for breakfast?”

Over the years I have done everything from smoothies, to leftovers from the night before, to bacon and eggs. Here recently, I have made a switch in my eating and decided to up my fat intake to rely more on fat as an energy source instead of carbs.
So in the morning I have been drinking Unscared Coffee, named after Brian MacKenzie, Founder of CrossFIt Endurance and 3FU3L. It will take some getting use to but once you try it a few times I think you will enjoy it. Below are the ingredients.

16 oz of black coffee (the higher quality coffee, the better)
2 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. organic butter.
2 scoops of 3FU3L
Put it in a blender bottle and drink it up.

What it does for me is gives me a clean, sustained, energy with protein that keeps me from getting hungry late into the morning.

Some of you will say: “I don’t like coffee!”
My answer: “Me either.”
The fat from the oil and the butter kills some of the coffee taste that so many people dislike and the 3FU3L gives it a good clean flavor that is not too strong.

Give it a shot; I think you will like it.

Scripture Inspiration: Strength

I wanted to pass this along today – I came across this as I was studying.  Remember today where your strength comes from!

Isaiah 40:29-31

29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Philippians 4:13
13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
