Let’s start off with filling our belly with some food. Here are two Costco faves. The red peppers make an appearance again. They have a little olive oil drizzled on top with some herbs de provence sprinkled a top. These veggies are paired with a few slices of OLLI sopressata. This is a quick, easy lunch that can be followed with a guilt-free dessert since this is a carb free meal.
and your liquid treat:
Hard ciders are gluten-free most of the time. My husband noticed there were more than just apple ciders at the grocery store. I could decide between the pear, raspberry and blackberry… I chose the pear to try first, and I was more than pleased with my selection! I highly recommend this delicious treat after a low-carb meal. Why not indulge every now and then! Additionally, the pear hard cider has less cals than the traditional apple ciders.
Let’s get onto the good stuff…
WHOOP-PIES! What is better than baking when the weather is sub-par?!?!?? ummm, nothing! I decided to double-up and make two batches, my husband really is loving the fully stocked refrigerator with desserts. These two recipes are from John Catham’s book: Paleo Cookies. The modifications I made for each of these are as follows…
chocolate: use carob powder instead of cocoa powder
vanilla: use maple syrup instead of honey for the cake & filling
add palm shortening into the filing to make it creamier if the butter separates
This is a lovely afternoon snack, or a breakfast on-the-go. I have eaten one of these for breakfast twice this past week as I have had early morning doctors’ appointments to attend. I follow one of these bars with a liter of water spiked with fulvic acid (7-14 drops) – I will post the brand I have purchased in the hydration section! I am in love with this product, it really helps your cells quickly absorb nutrients & water.
Looks like today will be SUNNY!!! Rain, Rain, Go Away!!
peace. love. paleo.
