Lamb Burger Sliders with Sweet Fig Compote

Okay, Im just going to toot my own horn for a minute (toot toooottt..tooot). This meal is DIVINE. This was my very first grilling with lamb (I used my Traeger wood pellet grill) and it turned out even better than I could have hoped for. It seems super gourmet, unique and will definitely impress your dinner guests, but the best part? You can have it ready and on the table in less than an hour!

Lettuce Wrap Tacos

Yesterday I went to Meijer to pick up a prescription and get some of the groceries I needed for recipe testing (just keep in mind it was my third trip to Meijer for the day after lets just say EXTREMELY long day).

I no longer get headaches from my blood sugar crashing before lunch and definitely don’t experience that hangry feeling (ya feel me?), I eat so much less, in fact my grocery bills have even started to decrease! Fatty coffees have been making this adjustment so much easier, I treat them as a meal replacement, they’re often my go to breakfast, and not to mention they’re absolutely delicious. During my last trip to Chicago I
