Since coming back from Central America I have a had a few friends over for dinner :) its nice to move to a new city where some good friends live! My best friend came over tonight, she is a vegetarian so this dish was meat free, although you could add something tasty in there such as bacon ;) It's nice to have friends who are health conscious about what they eat even if it is totally different than the Paleo outlook. The most important thing is to be aware about how our food is produced and what make you feel good!
