Smokey Chipotle Citrus Crockpot Carnitas! {Macro Friendly Mondays #2}

#MacroFriendlyMonday2 — Smokey Chipotle Citrus Crockpot Carnitas!    I used the carnitas in my usual #MacroMicroBowl lunch (pictured above).

Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Kid, husband, and foodie approved roasted Brussels sprouts! I firmly believe that cooking vegetables is more about the right method and seasoning than anything else.
