AIP Paleo Balsamic Pot Roast Recipe

Well, it’s official.  There are only two weeks of summer left!  In my neck of the woods, the temperature is already starting to drop.  Soon, the leaves will begin to turn colors and plummet to the ground. I think it’s the perfect time for a Fall AIP paleo recipe!

Although I’m not looking forward to the chill coming my way, I do love many of the things that come along with autumn.  I love fall clothes!  All the beautiful colors and textures of fall clothes make me feel all warm and toasty.  And, of course, I love the food!  Warm, savory dishes, with spicy aromas, fill my kitchen. Rich, hearty AIP paleo meat, stews, and soups fill my family’s bellies.   Yea, autumn is pretty cool around my house.

Now, if you’re one of those people looking for pumpkin flavored everything, you’re not going to find that here.  I only have a couple of pumpkin dishes to offer.  In fact, the proliferation of pumpkin recipes during this time of year makes my head spin.  I just don’t like pumpkin that much.  If y’all want to make everything taste like white chocolate, I’m in! But, pumpkin, no thanks.

Today’s recipe is the start of my fall offerings, AIP Paleo Balsamic Pot Roast.  This slow simmered roast is filled with flavor.  As it cooks, it will blanket your home with a lightly spiced aroma.  And, the flavor is out of this world.  It will warm you up, even on the briskest day.

My next post will be a review of The Paleo Approach Cookbook by Sarah Ballantyne.  This book is the companion cookbook to The Paleo Approach.  If you’re not familiar with my posts, The Paleo Approach is the book that started my AIP paleo journey.  It is the best book I’ve read to help explain autoimmune disease, in a clear, concise way.  After reading The Paleo Approach, my autoimmune diseases finally made sense to me. Finally, all the pieces of the puzzle came together for me.  I am beyond excited to write my review.  I’ve already made a few of the dishes from this AIP paleo cookbook.  They did not disappoint!

I have lots of great surprises coming to you this Fall!  I have some fun giveaways, news, and recipes coming your way.  This is going to be the best autumn EVER!
