Dr Jockers Comments:
If you like a simple crockpot meal, this is excellent. Crockpot meals are great for using up older veggies and for having a continuous meal that you can add more meat and veggies too.
Grass-fed beef is loaded with clean protein and healthy fats such as omega 3’s and CLA which improve hormone function and help to burn fat and build muscle. The grass-fed butter provides these same fats and lots of vitamin A, D, E & K2 as well as the gut healing fatty acid butyrate.
Coconut aminos are the best replacement for typical soy sauce and provide a great Asian flavor without the soy. Herbamare is a terrific all-purpose seasoning that has anti-oxidant rich Italian herbs, sea salt and kelp. This is rich in trace minerals, tastes good and improves energy levels.
