I’m planning on developing more Paleo recipes as many of you have mentioned that you follow this lifestyle. If you have a favorite Paleo slow cooker recipe, please feel free to share in the comments. Thanks!

This looks really good, but I hesitate to buy unusual (coconut amino’s) and potentially expense ingredients for one recipe which I usually don’t use again. Is there a substitute for it?

What is the tapioca flour for? Is it a thickener and if so, can I substitute wheat flour?

Just wondering what the green pieces are in the picture. I don’t see anything in the recipe to account for them. They look like zucchini or maybe green pepper or …???
