Misty Humphrey and Rachel Flowers join Jimmy and Mindy on the Virtual Porch for tea and conversation in today’s recipe-riffic episode of Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore and Friends! We’ve got a great conversation with two amazing friends today discussing a hot topic in the low-carb/Paleo community: Is there such thing as one “Paleo Diet” or is there a basic “Paleo template” that can be used for people to tweak? See what Jimmy, Mindy, Misty and Rachel think about this idea and so much more! THANK YOU for listening!
