    Great recipe, but can you please review the ingredients…I had to look at the other site to get a full list. Also, a couple of things to make this the most amazing thing ever since coconut butter: 1.) please make the link from the meal calendar go directly to the recipe instead of needing to click under the pictures and 2.) please make the grocery list more accurate. I just used the first weeks without checking and had to make several more trips to the grocery store to get things that weren’t on the list. Thanks! Love the site and love the plans!!!!

    Hello – could you please be more specific about the inaccuracies on the shopping lists? We tried to be as thorough as possible. Also, please be sure that you checked the “kitchen basics” list. There are ingredients that we frequently cook with that are not listed over and over again.
    Thanks! Feel free to follow up here, or using the “feedback” button on the left side.

    Can you provide a link to the “kitchen basics” list? I, too, missed some things not listed in the ingredients (namely, lime) because I missed this list.

    Maybe I missed something, but how much lime juice do you put in the marinade? It’s not in the ingredients list… Thanks for this recipe, I’m going to make it tonight! 🙂

    Sorry for the error – it is the juice from 1.5 limes (about 1/8 of a cup). It has been added. Thanks!

    This was really nice. I just really dug the marinade, so I have made tons of meals with the marinaded meat.

    So in step 12, when you say to add vegetables and seasonings, by seasonings do you mean the marinade or is that discarded?
