This week’s #whatiatewednesday is not only a delicious one, but a super easy “do it yourself” one. It all started when I saw that my local Whole Foods had a sale on organic pork ribs. For less than $10, I was able to purchase ribs from pigs that weren’t given any antibiotics or growth hormones and were fed organic, non-GMO, feed. Even though we’ve recently talked about how misleading food labels can be, the price and my desire for ribs made this an easy purchase. I have a preference for smoked ribs, but that takes a tremendous amount of time, which is something I feel most people lack especially in the middle of a workweek. That’s why the crockpot is such a godsend. Cover these bad boys in a homemade NO SUGAR dry rub, then throw them in the crockpot on low for 8 hours and BAM! Fall of the bone ribs. No need to cover these ribs in a sugary BBQ or any liquid at all. Your dry rub will provide all the flavor you need without giving you that pesky blood sugar spike.
This week’s episode contains both fun and serious facts about the Memorial Day holiday. Also, Shannon and I dive into how to eat healthy at summer pool parties/cookouts, next week’s interview with a well known fitness & health professional and the iTunes debut of the ETT Wrap Show. If you like the podcast, please share it with a friend. Help us get the good word of health & fitness out to as many people as possible. Preesh!
Even though the Memorial Day holiday will have past when this episode debuts, we at ETT want to thank the men and women of the armed forces, especially those that have given their lives, to ensure our freedom. Thank you.
