        For these, you’re going to need to soak the tofu for 5-10 minutes. You then fry the tofu in a skillet, until golden brown. Choose your toppings and fill your sandwich! Get the recipe here!

        4.) Butternut Flatbreads

          These butternut flatbreads are made with a unique ingredient… Gelatin! Of course, you can skip this if you feel uneasy about putting gelatin into your bread. However, it won’t be as chewy (if that’s what you’re looking for)! You can bake them from 12 to 17 minutes, depending on how crisp you want them. Find the recipe here.

              This gluten-free bread is filled with herbs and is super easy to make. It only requires 8 ingredients and cooks in just 15 minutes. I definitely recommend this recipe, you can find it here!

                Via: health-bent.com

                This paleo wrap is genius! Use the meat for a sturdier sandwich, instead of the lettuce! Lay out some meat, fill it with your favorite toppings, and wrap it up! You can find this recipe here.

                8.) Tomato Burgers

                  Via: theironyou.com

                  Tomatoes are moist, juicy, gluten free, and have little to no carbs. It’s no secret why tomatoes make the perfect alternative to hamburger buns. Once you cut the tomatoes in half, scoop out the seeds, and grill them for a few minutes, you’ll be able to stuff your favorite toppings (such as cheese and lettuce) inside the holes so there’s no mess! You can find the recipe here.

                  9.) Plantain Tortilla Wraps

                    Via: zenbellycatering.com

                    These wraps are amazing. Plantains are healthy, however, you don’t want to eat these raw. They have a very bitter taste, but when you cook them your taste buds will sing with joy. You’ll need a food processor in order to purée the plantains, and then you can add the rest of the ingredients. Did I mention they only take 15 minutes to bake? You can find the recipe here.

                    10.) Sweet Potato Buns

                      Via: platedwithstyle.com

                      These healthy buns are filled with honey, coconut milk, lemon juice, and of course sweet potatoes. They’re easy to make, and the recipe can be adjusted to fit your taste. All you have to do is cook the sweet potato in the oven until it’s soft, then purée it with the other ingredients. Give these a try- find the recipe here.

                      11.) Buckwheat Flatbread Sandwiches

                        Via: food.com

                        This flatbread isn’t considered paleo because it includes some grains. However, it’s packed with flavors and textures that you won’t be able to find anywhere else! It takes about two days to make, considering you have to soak the dry ingredients with water, oil, and apple cider vinegar. When the seeds rise to the top of the bowl, you’ll be ready to bake! You can find the recipe here.

                        10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                        10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

                        A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

                        To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

                        1. Camping

                        A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

                        2. Staycation

                        You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

                        3. Island Getaway

                        People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

                        4. Fancy Resort

                        Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

                        5. Road Trip

                        The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

                        6. Charter a Boat

                        If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

                        7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

                        If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

                        8. Themed Retreats

                        There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

                        9. Working Honeymoon

                        Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

                        10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

                        Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
