Paleo Pot Roast

Paleo Pot Roast. Hmmm, doesn’t that sound funny?

The chuck roast is a cut of meat which can be roasted in the oven, so one might assume that a pot roast is a pot roasted in the oven. Well I guess that makes sense, but what type of meat is in the pot?

English can be such a confusing language…but food is universal. :)

Anyway….today is Jeff’s birthday! :)

Paleo Pot Roast

Last year at this time we were hanging with friends in Miami to celebrate his 30th.

Today we’re celebrating at home, enjoying the Chicago summer sun. We may go hang at the park and throw the football, do some sprints but there’s no doubt we’ll be lifting in our home gym.

I don’t have a special meal planned but Jeff really enjoyed this Paleo Pot Roast, so I decided to share this recipe today. I served the roast with some cauliflower mash and a side salad.

Although we’ll be going out for dinner tonight, I have a simple little dessert that is all ready and waiting for later. I’ll have photos on Instagram and if all goes well, it may eventually make it to the blog. :)
