Without a Doubt and Crockpot Recipe

July 7, 2011

Years ago I used to read Art Devany’s blog like it was a bible. Re-reading his articles constantly. He made some “philosophical points” if you will, that made a deep impact on me back then. One particular point that he still talks about today,quickly mentioned again during a fairly recent video posted by Chris at Conditioning Research, is that once you have collected your information and decide to put it to use, you MUST JUST LET IT HAPPEN. Forget about the outcome, be involved in the process and forget about it.

This is something that for me and my studies of “life” resonates very deeply. For the “things” in life to happen the way you want, you must allow it to happen by steadfastly believing it. Many people I know just don’t allow “things” to take their course and stop themselves short getting where they want to get: because they “believe” that they can’t, more so, than “believe” that they CAN and will get what they are after. My observation that the reason behind this is that at some point during the journey, doubt creeps in, naysayers speak up, friends have better advice, etc etc etc. And just like that, people “turn back”.

Let me give you a little analogy;

When you get in your car to go somewhere, do you ever question your starting point?? You leave home or work but there is NO doubt about where your starting point is right? At the same time…are you ever in doubt or perhaps not convinced about where you are going?? Now here’s the kicker, you completely understand that you can not get there instantly! Your whole being accepts the fact that you will travel the road and in time you will get to your destination. Now while there maybe some blocked roads or accidents along the way, perhaps even a flat tire and you might get really tired from the long drive, you don’t at any point turn your car around and go back to your starting place right? You never really question your trip, you accept the fact that there is a travel distance from the place you started to where you want to go. This “thought” if you will, applies to everything you undertake in life.Where you are now and what or where you want to be in life…is just like this simple car ride.

You want to get in better shape? Eat right? Become more financially well off? Don’t turn your car around in the middle of your journey. Keep going, know where you want to go and you WILL GET THERE!

Thank you Art for sparking the thought. Next post, I will give you some thoughts about how we are all different yet the same and how that applies to what YOU should be eating.

Let’s cook;

Grab your crock pot.

1 pork tenderloin (about 2 pounds) 1 large onion, i can salsa verde, 4 large chopped tomatoes or a can of chopped tomatoes, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 small hot pepper, sea salt and about 2 tblspoons olive oil. If you have my favorite condiment on hand add 4 heaping tbspoons to it as well.

Lay the pork tenderoin in the crockpot, chop all your veggies, add on top. drizzle with olive oil and some sea salt, cover and let it to it’s thing for 6-8 hours on low temp. Careful not to eat all 2 pound by yourself….it’s easy to do.

You can also add some sausage to it if you like.

Enjoy your day and be nice….

    Off the topic – are you going to the Ancestral Health conference this year?

      Even though I had planned for ever to be there…
      Our family is celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary over the dates of the conference…
      I was one of the original “volunteers” and helped with site selection.
      Good luck with your presentation!

      Hope all is well with you and that you’re enjoying the summer.
