Weekday dinners are the bane of most diets. It's always a few days into the week (I'm looking at you, Thursday night) when you realize you are just too tired to cook dinner. You have done great on salads and chicken breast up until now, but seriously, you just want some good, tasty, soul fulfilling comfort food. And you don't want to take time making it. Sound familiar? We've all been there.
This recipe is probably my most exciting discovery of 2018 so far. I had no idea up until this point, that plantains could substitute as flour in just about any recipe that calls for flour. How cool is that?! Subbing flour with a nutrient dense fruit filled with good fats, vitamins, low in sugar, AND tastes amazing is basically like stumbling upon a pot of gold.
Ahh, you guys! I'm so excited to share this recipe with you!I've long been searching for the perfect Paleo brownie recipe, but couldn't find one I liked. After I discovered the power of plantains in baking, a light bulb went off in my head.
Cashews are amazing little things. I recently discovered how versatile cashews are, and how many different ways you can utilize them in cooking. The best part about cashews is that they have the ability to imitate sauces and creams so accurately, you might not even be able to tell them apart from non-paleo versions made with heavy cream and butter.
It's Day 15 of Whole 30 (halfway, whoop!). I am feeling great but, I must admit, I'm getting pretty tired of my usual breakfast. Since we have been attempting to go egg-free this month, my breakfast usually consists of kale, turkey meat, and some fruit. Not bad, but also not exciting 15 days in a row. So, I decided to switch things up and make a batch of chia seed pudding for the week.
The weather has been completely crazy, you guys. It actually feels like winter in Texas, which is the part that's just completely insane. We've busted out our big jackets and boots at least ten times since December (fun, but crazy), and basically, I'm just hoping we don't freeze to death.
I have to admit that I have been an avid Paleo dieter for around three years now, and never had the courage to make my own bone broth. I always found the process so daunting. I also had serious concerns about burning down my house with a slow-cooker left on for 24 hours. Well, friends, I finally worked up the courage and made my first batch of bone broth. And guess what? It was as easy as it was delicious. And my house is still standing. Win!
I'm all about quick and easy when it comes to cooking. Two full-time working parents, a two year old, and a dog that wants to be a two year old, means time is always limited. When we started considering doing a Whole 30 challenge, I was immediately hesitant. I know how much time prepping meals can take, and I also know how quickly a diet can be ruined when you don't have a compliant meal ready to go.
