Paleo English Muffins

Breakfast | April 13, 2017 | By

I’m a big fan of using almond flour to make things taste like carbs! I’ve been on a kick making breakfast sandwiches for breakfast and/or lunch and these little English muffins are perfect when sliced in half and toasted. I also like to toast and spread a little grass-fed butter or almond butter on them for a sweet treat! There is hardly any prep or clean up involved and you can’t beat a 2 minute cooking time. If you still can’t afford the 5 minutes, make a bunch ahead of time and store them in the freezer then defrost/reheat as you consume

Chocolate Glazed Paleo Donuts

Breakfast, Dessert | January 8, 2017 | By

These are hands down my favorite donuts in the entire world. Unlike the sugar headaches I inevitably get from “regular” donuts, I can devour these suckers guiltlessly with the only consequence being a big ol’ protein boost. If you don’t already have a donut pan, it is definitely worth the investment for a future filled with these fluffy chocolate-y treats. The trick to making these donuts is to be patient to make sure they cool at each step before glazing and after glazing – pop them in the fridge to speed the process up! Enjoy these donuts for breakfast, with a cup of steaming coffee or for a mid-afternoon snack!

Blueberry Chia Pudding

I love tapioca pudding…and anything with that deliciously chewy texture for that matter.  Unfortunately, tapioca isn’t too carb-friendly (nor is it paleo).  Chia seeds, on the other hand, are among the healthiest foods on the planet and are jam packed with nutrients that are great for your body and brain!  In theory, they are supposed to control hunger while powering your diet with super-nutrients.   They’re “whole-grain”, non-GMO and naturally free of gluten.  The best part about these magical liquid-absorbing seeds is that you can throw a handful in a cup of almond or coconut milk, cover and refrigerate and by morning you have delicious chia pudding!  It doesn’t get any easier than that for a healthy yet delicious breakfast or snack.  Read more about the amazing benefits of chia seeds in my post here!

Panda’s Paleo Bread

Breakfast, Recipes | April 24, 2015 | By

I love eating paleo…but I also love eating my bread!  Eating caveman doesn’t necessarily mean eating you can’t have that satisfying grainy fluffy dough.  I don’t remember the last time I had a slice of white processed Wonder Bread but I do remember that it doesn’t even taste good to me anymore.  I love the taste and the texture of this paleo bread.  You can toast a slice of it in the morning with some almond butter or even make a toasted paleo sandwich with it!
