These delicate cheesecake bars are a luscious disguise for whole food nutrition. High protein yogurt or kefir, almonds, and chia seeds offer a naturally nutrient-dense treat. Fermented goat milk is a boon to healthy digestion, and it can be consumed by many dairy-intolerant folks, as the protein molecules in goat milk are shorter than those found in cow milk. A chocolate crust made with pure cacao gives you a sweet anti-oxidant dose of phenylethylamine, the love-chemical. Flax oil and chia seeds add a powerful Omega-3 punch. Lemon peel and pulp are loaded with vitamin-C and flavonoids. If you use zero-glycemic [...]
The easiest and healthiest superfood you can make, fermented veggies are a natural probiotic that build healthy intestinal flora. And since the immune system depends on friendly bacteria in the gut, this is central to your health each day. This is a great way to use up leftover raw veggies. Have fun experimenting with different vegetables, low-sugar fruits, creating new combinations. Store in the refrigerator for several months and serve it as a side dish with every meal. These veggies taste great with Paleo Butternut Squash Soup, or Paleo Shepherd’s Pie. It’s easy to chop or grate with a food [...]
This nutty fudge has everything you want in a perfect snack. Chocolate, low-carbs, high-nutrition, rich flavor, and crunchy nuts. What looks like a decadent sweet, secretly hides nutrient-dense foods likes hemp nuts, flaxseeds, bee pollen, chia seeds, and oh yes, beets!

They look like those chia squares I used to buy in the grocery bins before going sugar-free and Paleo – except they’re sooooo much more nutritious and tasty. Plus they’re sweetened with natural zero-glycemic sweetener, so they satisfy sweet cravings, while leaving your [...]

The criterion used are based on purity, stable blood sugar, and balanced metabolism. With a growing epidemic of diabetes and obesity, we need to find sweeteners that will stop the sugar cycle in it’s tracks. Some of these sweeteners are expensive, but still far less costly than diabetes. In some areas we need to hunt and gather them online. This article is a brief executive summary. For details see my researched articles: What are the Best Paleo Sweeteners?, and 300 [...]
Today I was in the mood for a sweet orange muffin. Not quite a cupcake, but almost – Paleo and grain-free. There were 2 oranges sitting on my counter, and some soaked, toasted almonds in the pantry. Well, the muffins came out wonderfully rich, moist and intoxicatingly orangey. (Don’t tell anyone, but I was singing a Hugo Wolf song about longing for the mysterious land where orange trees bloom…I’m sure he meant Italy.) Anyway, these are sensuously delectable with Orange Honey Butter. If you use one of the natural zero-carb sweeteners suggested (Just Like Sugar, PureLo, or Swerve), these are [...]
