I've been Paleo for a year now and believe me, it wasn't always easy. It used to take me hours to go grocery shopping. I'd be there standing in the aisles reading label after label..... and that was after spending hours at home researching on the internet what to eat while making meal plans. Except when I didn't plan ahead, which was usually the case, and we lived on bacon and eggs - again.
Look! There it is!
Even our non-Paleo friends love these. We served them for my daughter's 5th birthday party and the kids gobbled them up. We've never used frosting, we eat them as they are, although you could certainly put something on them or nestle them in a bed of strawberries. So many people have asked for this recipe I'm posting it right away.
Even now, after a year of eating Paleo, I can't think about "eating healthy".
That sounds so boring. And forced. Like my mom making me clean my room.
I remember when I first went gluten-free. It was February 2011 and in less than 24 hours I felt like a new person. No more brain fog or grouchiness. No more fatigue or food cravings. I lost 20 lbs eating gluten-free junk. That's because I did it to feel less crappy, not to eat healthy.
Here is what a friend texted me yesterday: "I turn 30 in a month and I was wondering if I'm strict Paleo what I can expect to lose of I'd notice a difference in 30 days?"
It reminded me of me last year. "I'm turning 40 in November and I don't to be fat on my birthday, ahhhhhHHhhHH!" I had all year to get ready. It wasn't like turning 40 was a surprise or I had forgotten when my birthday was. But like I usually do, I waited until the last minute. (Oh, the brilliant ideas I had for college term papers at 2:00am the day they were due but I digress. LOL!) That's why, in mid-September 2011...
I like the easy Paleo stuff.
