It’s A New Year, Time To Set Your New Goals.

It’s that time of year again! Time to reflect on the year that’s been and the new year that lays blank ahead of us. It’s a time to choose how we approach and shape the new year. For me I look forward to the new year and a new fresh start. Living in Australia, the new year also brings our warmest weather, and that itch to be outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

Many of you will be making new years resolutions, and others will be picking one word to inspire them throughout 2016. Some will be doing both. Last year I wrote a post about breaking down your resolutions and setting goals that are achievable. You might find it useful to read about that here. Re-reading it, it’s still very relevant.

Paleo Steak Diane Sauce

One of my favourite meals when I dine out is a well cooked steak. Prior to going paleo, I would always choose that steak with Diane sauce. There was something about the flavour that I made me a big fan. I’m guessing it was the garlic (I love garlic). I’ll reassure you now though that this sauce isn’t overly garlicky, if you’re not a fan of garlic like me. Either way, the traditional sauce isn’t paleo and I soon had to make the choice to leave it out when choosing off a menu.

A Grain Free Lunch Box #2

Previously, I have shared with you what my kids like to eat, and even what they take to school in their lunch box. Their diet is probably best described as 80/20, with 80 percent being paleo and 20 percent being gluten-free. I’m trying harder and harder to make sure that that 80/20 becomes 90/10, but gluten-free is still something that’s easier to manage when they are out with friends.

Chocolate Hazelnut Clusters

There is going to come a day on your paleo journey when you just want a treat. Whether is emotional eating, cravings or the situation you’re in. Whatever it is, the day where you battle with yourself will come. If your eating a balanced paleo diet and getting enough of all the important vitamins and minerals, these days won’t be often. But I won’t lie to you and tell you they never happen.

This little ‘treat’ may be what gets you through, without the regrets and/or repercussions. Lets be clear, it is a treat food and not something I’m suggesting for everyday eating. The nuts in this recipe are a great source of good fat and will sustain you for longer. The chocolate, however, really offers no nutritional value.

A Grain Free Lunch Box

In previous posts I have shared with you lunch box recipes that will keep your little ones full throughout their busy days. Today, I thought I would share with you what those grain free lunch boxes actually end up looking like.

All of these items can be prepared in advance and quickly popped into the lunch box by yourself or the child. Most mornings my cherubs actually put their snack items into their own lunch boxes. It gives them some feeling of control, allowing for their individuals tastes or preferences, but it is also one less thing for me to do on already busy mornings.
