It is true.
I'm back on the Whole 30.
After 2 weeks in the Philippines, consuming WAY too much MSG and not having a great selection of fresh veggies (and really, let's be honest, I just wanted to eat whatever I wanted to eat) I'm back on the Whole 30. 
I need to clean out my insides and get back on track.
That's right.
30 days of REAL FOOD
Meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds. Foods with very few ingredients, all pronounceable ingredients, or better yet, no ingredients listed at all because they’re totally natural and unprocessed. That's what I'm doing in a nutshell.
Some think I'm crazy others think I'm awesome.
Either way, they are right. ;)
So, if you are drooling, here is the recipe:

3 -5 pound  Chuck Roast
HERBS --- I just sprinkle...I'll guesstimate for you on how much I used. 
Feel free to use more or less depending on how you feel about that spice.
2 tsp Garlic powder
1 TBL thyme
1 TBL fennel
1 tsp dill weed
2 TBL oregano
1 TBL kosher salt
1-2 TBL fresh crushed pepper
Sprinkle all those herbs all over your roast.

Toss that bad boy in a crock pot.
Then throw in:
1 bag of baby carrots and
1 diced onion
Along with 1/2 a cup of beef broth - homemade is best, if you don't have homemade, toss in 1/2 a cup of water.
That's right. PLAIN ol' water.
Oh and then
toss 2 sprigs of rosemary on top of everything.

Put the lid on an cook on low for 7-8 hours.


Your roast will fall apart.
Your people will love it. 
Then they will tell you how much better it would be with potatoes.

So, if you are not on the Whole 30 toss in some potatoes to make them happy.

Serve with a yummy green salad.

Go to bed happy.
