Sydney is the cook and writer behind the blog Paleoptimistic as well as the @paleoptimistic Instagram and Twitter accounts. She strives to put an optimistic spin on life whether it be teaching Spinning® classes or concocting something yummy in the kitchen.

There is also a recipe below for a sweet potato rice side dish, and she recommends serving the barbacoa with the sweet potato rice, some sauteed vegetables, and some guacamole.
