For the next two months I am going to be sharing a lot of no-fuss, simple (and delicious!) recipes for you all. For the rest August I am going to be super busy getting ready for almost a full month of travel and in September I will be, well, traveling. My blog has always and will always be a reflection of my life, so when I don’t have time to cook, that means you will be getting a lot of simple recipes that are great for when you’re in a hurry!

This week I prepared 5 Minute Paleo Plantains. Although plantains may seem like an intimidating or fancy ingredient, they’re not! They are one of the easiest things to prepared and make a phenomenal side for my Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. I love to make this as a side along with my Bacon Lovers Spicy Southern Greens and Homemade Cole Slaw!
