Now, I know its been a while between posts. Study, work, and family have certainly kept me busy the last year. 2017 is shaping up to be no different.
I started this year with so many commitments eating up my time, that I have to look at being more efficient where I could. I have started meal planning to make sure that I’m not wasting foods (pet hate of mine) and that I’m not spending more money on groceries than I should be. After our mortgage, food is our biggest expense in my household.
So, I got busy planning, and coming up with some new recipes. This one was one of them…
One day my hubby came home and requested this recipe, and playing the good wife I obliged. It’s not often he requests a specific dish, so I’m usually happy to make it for him. I had actually been meaning to try making these paleo meatball subs for a while, and it’s not dissimilar to my basic meatball recipe you can find here.
As some of you may know, hubby and I have been doing a Whole30 since the beginning of January 2016. It has been a lot easier than I thought it would, and although it hasn’t been as easy for him, I’ve been really proud of how he has stuck to it. So when he came to me asking for me to make up this recipe, which is Whole30 compliant, I’m going to serve it up and keep him on track.
My hubby is and always was a jerky lover. When he finally joined me on the paleo journey one of the first things he asked me to make him was some jerky. I’ve made it quite a few times since then. This recipe is a mix of flavours that I always go back to.
This paleo beef jerky recipe is simple to make and is great to have on hand as a snack, whether you’re trying to up your protein, makes snacks that are cost-effective, or just need something convenient to take away camping. It’s also suitable if you are following the Whole30 or 21 Day Sugar Detox (21DSD).
This time of year many people are baking or making tasty little treats to gift or share with family for the festive season. It’s such a lovely thing to receive a handmade gift, something baked with love. That is, as long as it’s not filled with processed grains and sugars.
The festive season can be hard to avoid those foods that you have chosen to remove from your diet. For many people it takes an extra effort to resist. So receiving a girt made with real food ingredients shows the extra care and effort has been put into that gift. Here I have put together 10 recipes that would make great homemade gifts. Things I’d love to receive myself.
With the festive season fast approaching (well actually it’s here), these paleo chocolate honeycomb truffle balls are a great treat to take with you to gatherings, or to keep you on the real food path when there are so many temptations in front of you.
It’s a tough time of year. Family will be piling their plates up with delicious food to celebrate the festive season. It doesn’t have to be hard though. Desserts are one thing that can be so tempting. These balls, while perfect for a treat all year round, are decadent that you wont feel like you are missing out. They would also make a nice gift for someone special.
