5 Ingredient Chia Seed Vanilla Pudding

Holy crap, I’m finally doing it. I’m posting a dessert recipe. Don’t get too excited, this is really not all that great. BUT, it is really easy to make. The only thing is- you kind of have to like tapioca pudding (the texture) in order to like it.

Sorry there are no better pictures of the actual pudding. I took about 45, in every different light possible, but it just didn’t show up right.   Continue reading

Paleo On The Go Snacks (with lots of pictures!)

I know, I know. It’s been days since I’ve posted anything. That whole working full-time and trying to have a social life really gets in the way of blogging. I promise, I have plenty of posts ready for you! I’m pretty embarrassed that my first post after almost a week is a really lame, rhyme-y titled post. Oh well. It is what it is. photo 5 (4)

So last Friday I went to Whole Foods because I have been dying to get my hands on some Tessemae’s paleo sauces. Imagine my excitement when I got there and not only were they doing samplings of a few of their sauces, but after talking with a brand ambassador I also found out that the company started right near my hometown of Annapolis, Maryland. Luckily for me, they have pretty much every flavor of Tessemae’s at my local Whole Foods. I ended up buying their ketchup, hot sauce (which is what I originally went for) and this super amazing soy ginger dressing. I have to admit, the ketchup is a little sweeter than I prefer and I still need to give the hot sauce another chance, but the soy ginger dressing is amazing. For how much I go through hot sauce, I’m not sure that I would keep buying it, and I don’t use salad dressings very often and when I do I would prefer to have a paleo version, so I will definitely keep the soy ginger in my fridge. I actually can’t wait to try more of their flavors. Continue reading

Paleo and the Grocery Store: Tips, Tricks and Simple Suggestions

whole-foods-1-1024x768

This is a post that was requested by someone brand new to paleo who was looking for more advice than just recipes. Once I thought about it, paleo starts way before the kitchen; it starts in the grocery store. This can be tricky for many people. It’s not quite as simple as the “stick to the perimeter of the store” advice I have seen everywhere recently, though I won’t deny it is still great overall advice.
