My Favourite On-The-Go Snacks (mostly Paleo)

In an effort to minimize crappy, cannot-pronounce ingredients, I love to make my own snacks. And, for the most part, these are not time consuming.  What I do try to avoid is grains, refined flours, and minimal sugar, if any. Why? Because they tend to spike blood sugar which essentially will make us crave and grab for even more sugary and refined foods that do more harm than good.

I’m going to give you the snacks that I make myself and those that I grab from the store, on the go!

James and I are in Seattle for the weekend. I decided mid-week that I really needed to get out of town (literally) as I had been pushing myself a bit too hard. If you read my last post, you would have learned that after a few months of feeling pretty great, I had a set back.

How To Make Homemade Ghee

I don’t know about you but I’m all about trying to make as much as I possibly can in my own home. From GRAIN FREE GRANOLA, to GRAIN FREE GRANOLA BARS, SMOOTHIES and DAIRY FREE PUMPKIN SPICED LATTES, and TURMERIC TEA LATTES, I want to be able to see and control what I am putting into my body. The same goes for ghee.  But, I understand that most people may not know what ghee is, never mind assume that it’s only for Indian food! (That’s what I thought too!)

Products I Love: Wholy Tea (detox + cleanse)

Print

I’ve seen a lot of teas out there that say that they can make you “skinny”, leaner, lose weight, etc.  And, honestly, I never actually bought into the gimmick of it.  Any nutritionist will tell you that weight loss has much to do with balance in your food, exercise and lifestyle.  If those don’t work, then we look at potential imbalances in the body. That’s it. That’s the recipe. Wholy Tea is a whole different ball game.  I actually started with the Detox & Cleanse version as the timing of it was perfect – two week’s before Christmas.
