Spiced Chicken Drumsticks


Yesterday Ben and I began another Whole 30 challenge.  For those of you new here, it's a 30 day commitment to remove all grains, legumes, dairy & sugar (even honey, agave, & maple syrup) from our meals & snacks.  It's a great time to not only get my body back into a healthy alignment, but my soul & mind as well.  When I find myself hitting the afternoon hour it's all too easy to medicate with food or drink.  I normally avoid grains & dairy outside of Whole 30; however, I put heavy whipping cream in my coffee (it doesn't contain as much lactose), which is something I would drink in the afternoon. 

This afternoon proves otherwise.  One thing a person must embrace by participating in Whole 30 is cooking.  It cannot be avoided.  Some might think that meals are exquisite in my home, or have a certain idea of how I cook; but, really, I like to keep it simple.  I avoid elaborate & multiple step recipes for weeknight meals (the little people who live here need more of me).  What I do embrace is cooking with the seasons, buying from sustainable meat practices, & making the food speak for itself.  That's me (however, I bake with a bit more complexity)! 

If you like the idea of quick, made from scratch, healthy & easy Chicken drumsticks, then you've come to the right place.  The spice rub is a mixture of ground chili, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ground pepper & sea salt.  I wrote about it for my gym's blog, so you can click on the link below to get the recipe:)
