Liver LOVE!!! Another Happy Week No 77

Behzad and I have been LOVING our new liver and as always prepare it as "liver snaps"(grassfed liver + tons of naturally-made fat + 150 degrees overnight). The volumes of fat used and the way it hardens usually resembles almond bark! I use this toxin-free pan with traditionally-made coconut oil, buffalo tallow, and homemade-rendered grassfed beef fat. After cooking, I sprinkle finishing salts and devour!!! #sodelicious #sograteful I just started listening to this and was so surprised to hear that Goldie Hawn, while pregnant with Kate Hudson, ate liver once a week! I remember reading in so many books like this that...

Significant Miracle

One significant miracle for me was finding my way. Although I spent many months planning my route and daily miles, I was completely uninterested in reading the specific directions (“turn right at the large Oak tree”). I became completely overwhelmed with the minute details, so I decided to skip them and then wondered just how I was going to find my way across Spain. I kept reading other accounts of pilgrims and trusted that I would somehow find my way. It was unnerving to have this looming unknown for a place I had not seen and a place I did...
