Grain-Free Simple Sweets – Made with 5 ingredients or less!


I’ve been secretly busy behind the scenes, and I’m quite happy that I can finally say what it is that I’ve been up to! Yep! It’s another eBook, and this one is called Grain-Free Simple Sweets!

I’ve partnered with recipe master (mistress? whatever…), Ashley Thomas of My Heart Beets. And if you don’t already know, this girl knows her way around the kitchen! Ashley is awesome at whipping together ‘fancy’ dishes (you MUST check out Ashley’s butter chicken, or heck, any of her Indian food dishes), but she can also do simple, yet very delicious. Together, Ashley and I have put together over 30 recipes for simple sweet treats that you can make at home – all made with five ingredients or less!

If you’re new to the Paleo grain-free lifestyle, you’ll know how hard it can be to make the adjustment and leave behind the processed food and sweets. When the craving hits, sometimes you kind of wish you had a little something… but what? Thankfully, this ebook is just the answer, as you can enjoy refined-sugar-free sweets that are really easy to make and help indulge that craving, but in a much healthier, guilt-free way.


For a LIMITED TIME, you can get this eBook for over 60% off!!! BUT, you’ve got to order soon.

Mint Chip Ice Cream (Vegan, Paleo and AIP-friendly!) & A GIVEAWAY!


Mint Chip Ice CreamIceCream_iPad2-Mockup-black_flatIt is FINALLY here! This book: We Can ALL Scream For Ice Cream. This is just a ‘little’ book project that I’ve been working with Jennifer of Predominantly Paleo to put together. We thought ,”Hey, fun! Ice cream! Easy peasy!” And while it has been fun, it’s been quite the learning curve of getting together an eBook for the first time! If you’d like to win your very own copy of We Can ALL Scream For Ice Cream head on down to the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of the post!

Vegan, Paleo, and AIP-friendly Ice Cream for you, for me, for everyone!

What makes this eBook different? Well, for very selfish reasons, the recipes in this book are free of the top 8 food allergens, making them: dairy-free, nut-free and egg-free. (All the things that often make a good ice cream… well, good!). As I’ve mentioned before in the blog, I follow a Paleo Autoimmune Diet (AIP) – that essentially means I don’t eat dairy, eggs or nuts, but I also don’t eat grains, legumes, nightshades and seeds. According to the guidelines for the Autoimmune Diet put out by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (aka The Paleo Mom) in her book The Paleo Approach, those of us who follow the AIP diet also need to watch our fructose intake. Too much fructose can be inflammatory and trigger an autoimmune reaction, so Sarah recommends that if you’re following the AIP diet, you should keep your fructose consumption under 20g per day. With that in mind, Jennifer and I made sure that our book was suitable for AIP by including the amount of fructose per serving of each recipe in the book. So, if you’re AIP, you can make an informed decision and go-ahead and eat the ice cream if you want ;) The book is perfect for families where different loved ones have different food-restrictions too!

3 Phase Paleo review


eBook review: 3 Phase PaleoThis post contains affiliate links, which means I will get paid a small commission if you make a purchase using my link. It doesn’t affect the price you pay, and I  wholeheartedly believe that this eBook would be of value to those looking into trying to improve their health through diet changes.

I’ve had the good fortune of receiving a review copy of the new eBook 3 Phase Paleo by Stacy Toth and Matthew McCarry, aka the Paleo Parents – who also happen to be the bestselling authors of two very excellent books: Eat Like a Dinosaur and Beyond Bacon. (Seriously, if you’ve got a child who has food allergies and/or must eat a restricted, processed-food-free diet, I highly recommend Eat Like a Dinosaur. The illustrations, back-story and explanations were perfect for explaining to my son why he can’t eat certain foods).

So, on to the book at hand – here’s my 3 Phase Paleo review:
