The new year can be filled with optimism about the year to come. It can also be anxiety-inducing with the pressure to cultivate improvements in every facet of your life. It has become almost traditional that new year resolutions are about weight loss and fitness; this is especially shame-inducing post the holiday season. We've put together five ideas for mindful resolutions that will hopefully inspire you moving into the new year.
We’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year and share with you our first recipe of the year! Halloumi & Cherry Tomato with Pomegranate Molasses. Not only is it easier to make than expected to make, but it would make an impressive DIY gift in a cute jar with a label, and can be used for many applications beyond just a salad!
'Tis the season!' What is Christmas without ginger-spiced cookies? And, if you're planning on baking up a batch this Christmas, we've got the perfect festive recipe for you! These cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free (if you sub butter for coconut oil) and refined sugar-free, yet they taste and look very festive!
With a slather of grass-fed butter (healthy fats), this could be a great breakfast bread. It’s also ideal for kids' lunchboxes as it’s nut-free! You could omit the honey, making it purely sweetened with pears. There is also an option to add collagen to the bread for bone, hair and nail strength.
You're going to love how easy this paleo strawberry shortcake is! With the use of almond flour, it allows you to indulge in a guilt-free dessert, and who doesn't love that?! Most gluten-free shortcakes recipes use ingredients that aren't much better than wheat flour and white sugar. Our shortcake recipe uses more nutrient-dense ingredients such as almond flour.
Our Watermelon Fruit Roll-Ups are an easy homemade snack. The first five ingredients in most popular store-bought fruit roll-ups are corn syrup, dried corn syrup, sugar, pear puree concentrate and palm oil. In our case, we've ditched all the nasties and replaced it only with real fruit, coconut oil, and honey.
Finger Fruit, the perfect little bowl of goodness for back to school lunches or simply as a delicious snack. These watermelon fries are all we can think about and we highly recommend them, especially with the sweet and zesty dip! Oh...did we mention that it’s super easy to make?
Before summer escapes us, we wanted to share a recipe that is easy to make and super delicious poolside snack. A twist on a classic tomato salsa, a peach salsa is a great way to eat seasonal. Make a batch, store it in the fridge and avoid all the sugar, preservatives, and dehydrated vegetables in the the store bought version.
You may have heard the phase ‘but sugar is still sugar’, especially in the low carb and paleo communities. You may have also stumbled across evangelical fruitarians who eat nothing but fruit and claim amazing health benefits from doing so. As with most things related to nutrition, a balanced approach is what makes most sense.
