Bacon makes everything better. This is a inalienable truth. If there is a way to add bacon to a recipe, I will find it. I’m especially enamored with desserts and the way the salty perfection of bacon can highlight the sinful sweetness of, well, everything. But the combination of fat and sugar, though delectable, is not so great for you.

Going out for Valentine’s Day was always overrated, in my opinion. Sitters are hard to get, restaurants are packed, and the good dessert is always sold out. Instead of dealing with the drama of it all, I prefer to stay home and make the exact meal I want. In fact, I love to make salad and pasta, because the kids can have theirs, and then after I send them to bed, we can have a romantic dinner in peace (and I didn’t have to make two dinners). But the best part is dessert (OK, the real best part is later, but we’re focusing on food here people, don’t get sidetracked).
We’ve raised the bar—there’s just no topping these moist and chewy nutty pumpkin squares! Not cookies, not quite cake, they’re a satisfying grab-and-go snack or healthy dessert, packed with organic pumpkin, naturally sweet dates and crunchy almonds. Use gluten-free baking mix instead of flour for a healthy treat everyone can enjoy!
Wait a minute! Didn’t the last Paleoista post mention that there’s an overabundance of Paleo treats? Indeed, that’s true. However, this is not to be confused with the idea of indulging in a special treat, made with natural, unprocessed (and even raw in some cases) Paleo ingredients, once in awhile for special occasions. During the hot summer months, who wants to bake anyway?
Love (of chocolate) is in the air! Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a decadent chocolate-raspberry dessert that’s actually good for your sweetie to eat. Low in sugar, it’s made from healthy and yummy ingredients including raw cacao, raw honey, coconut oil and fresh berries. Simply pour the batter into small dishes and chill for easy-to-serve individual treats, or use a cookie cutter to shape into festive hearts for the occasion.
Why bother with white sugar when raw honey is just as sweet–and good for you?! “Raw” refers to the non-filtered, non-processed form of this sticky substance, made by bees from the nectar of flowers. In its pure, natural state, honey is swimming with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, live enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. Plus, it tastes great, whether swirled into a cup of hot tea, drizzled over a warm muffin or eaten straight from the spoon!
