After the holidays, I’m ready for some new flavors after staying quite true to the traditional holiday themes for all the Paleo events I’ve hosted between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Add to that the fact that in the height of cold season, we could all benefit from a little “heat” in our food–via garlic, cayenne and ginger–to help ward off those bugs that are all too present this time of year, and we’ve got a perfect rationale for a little spice in our recipe today!
Will I eat only raw fruits and vegetables? Can I still go to restaurants? What does a typical day’s meals look like?

When your body is alkaline, because you eat a net alkaline (Paleo) diet, you’re far less likely to be a good host (or hostess) to bacteria, viruses and yeasts than an acidic body fueled by grains, dairy, legumes and sugar.
In addition to following the Paleo lifestyle, there are other ways you can stay healthy while those around you are dropping like flies.
Who says there isn’t room in the Paleoista Lifestyle for a treat every now and then? These decadent holiday truffles are perfect for this special time of year and make a lovely parting gift to hand out to guests at the end of a Paleo feast.
With the holidays just around the corner, it’s easy to wonder how to go about staying on track with your healthy eating during this tempting time of year, as well as to be perplexed about what to serve if you’re the host for the family gathering.
It’s actually quite simple.
