Nothing says fall like Spiced Apple Cider! Embracing apples’ natural sweetness, it has only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep. This is one of my favorite ways to use the Instant Pot’s slow-cooker setting, because it will fill the house with such wonderful scents. Personally, I like to keep my cider simple, but if you want to try something different? Use grape or cranberry juice instead of the apple juice, or split one of them 50/50 with it. You can also vary up the seasoning with some lemon zest, orange slices, or ginger instead of or in addition to the cinnamon and cloves! And for an especially decadent treat, stir in 1/2-3/4 cup caramel sauce for caramel apple cider. (It’ll still be AIP-friendly if you use Sweet Apricity‘s, or make your own.)
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
