What is Paleo? It is a relatively new trend in dieting– a great approach for reducing inflammation in the body! Generally, it involves being grain-free, legume-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and eating a whole food diet that avoids any processed and genetically modified foods. Some of you may ask, “Well, what is there left to eat?!” Actually, there’s quite a bit! As is the case with anything, there is a spectrum to perfection! It would be impossible to maintain a diet that is 100% perfect at all times– but that’s not really the point… The real goal is to improve our health through food. Changing the way we eat to be a healthier way is important if we want to enjoy a long life without pain and illness. But perfection is not required! Here is a great recipe that is delicious and perfect for the seemingly endless cold weather. You can also make these ahead of time and eat on the run– not the best way to eat but super convenient on those particularly crazy days– Enjoy!
