Birds are singing, the sun is shining—oh wait. That’s not the scene outside your window, just yet. If cool winds are still whipping in your corner of the world, cozy up to a cup of Sippy Chippy Cocoa, made with almond milk, cacao nibs, coconut oil, vanilla and a pinch of spicy chipotle powder (to chase away unseasonal shivers, of course!).

If you’re following a specialty diet, you might think you’ll be staring at an empty plate during Passover. But there’s no reason to starve for eight whole days!
My husband’s new eating plan prompted me to seek out new ways to prepare our family’s favorite Passover dishes. I found out that with a few clever substitutions, you can still enjoy all the traditional fare! (Gluten-free matzo ball soup, anyone?)
It’s been a delicious (and healthy) year! Plates were piled high with colorful salads. Meatless Mondays trickled over into Tuesdays (and Wednesdays and Thursdays…). You kicked gluten to the curb. Burned out your blender on micro-greens smoothies. Fell harder in love with chocolate than you ever thought possible, once you tasted it raw.
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.
Chocolate cravings sometimes hit hard. When nothing can stop you, blend up a batch of this guilt-free, dairy-free pudding. Its creaminess comes from a “surprise” healthy ingredient: silky-smooth, whipped avocado! Mix in raw cacao and coconut for rich flavor, plus a sprinkle of cinnamon and vanilla for natural sweetness.
Fresh vegetables and fruits, wild fish and game make up the bulk of any Paleoista’s kitchen. In addition, there are some Paleo-friendly staples that come in handy when stocking the pantry in order to do the twice-weekly food prep, which is such an important part of implementing the Paleo lifestyle.
Who doesn’t love chocolate? But can it be part of the Paleo diet? The answer is yes! Remember, though, that we’re talking about the real deal, not an ultra-processed, adulterated version of something that used to be healthy in its original form.
