10 Paleo Recipes You’d Be Willing To Give Up Bread For

10 Paleo Recipes You’d Be Willing To Give Up Bread For

I once heard a very (un)wise person say: I could never eat Paleo. I need to eat more than vegetables, fruit and meat. I need my brownies! I need my cookies! I need my pancakes! I need everything typically associated with sugar and grains!

That person was me.

After some searching and some amazing creativity, I am happily shocked to be proven wrong and with a throw of recipes which can satisfy any craving!

The best thing about all these recipes is that they are all healthy, especially in contrast to their original (non paleo) version. Enjoy these 10 and get ready to be busy in the kitchen!

1. Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Muffins via Lexi’s Clean Kitchen

    A muffin recipe which has everyone’s favourite chocolate spread and is paleo friendly? Let’s get busy in the kitchen!

    2. Breakfast Cookie Dough via The Big Man’s World

      I’d never thought cookie dough for breakfast could happen but one which is healthy to boot? I know what I’m making tomorrow!

      3. Chocolate Mini Muffins via The Pretty Bee

        The mini sizes mean that we can consume more…am I right?

        4. 5 Minute Espresso Walnut Brownies via Minimalist Baker

          Even if this recipe took 2 hours, I’d be game to make it. Fortunately for us, it takes 5 minutes and it’s too ridiculous for words.

          5. Pumpkin Oatmeal via Kiss My Broccoli

            6. Mocha Almond Pancakes via The Healthy Maven

              This has been my ‘go to’ pancake recipe and I’m most definitely not Paleo. It even can convert the biggest white sugar fan.

              7. Chocolate Avocado Pudding via The Pretty Bee

                Get a dose of healthy fats (and fruit!) with this moreish pudding, and know your doing your body a favour over it’s traditional counter part!

                8. Microwave English Muffin via The Big Man’s World

                  I love English Muffins and am amazed that it can actually have a paleo spin on it and be made in the microwave! Ready in 5 minutes? Let’s get the stop watch sorted.

                  9. Vegan Peppermint Patties via Fit Foodie Finds

                    Peppermint patties have such an unfair stigma. They’re delicious and deadly (because full of calories). Now with this version, they become delicious and nutrient dense. The double D’s I approve of.

                    10. Mini Deep Dish Pizzas via Lexi’s Clean Kitchen

                    paleo

                      Be still, my heart. No that is not a Chicago deep dish classic. It’s even better.

                      After seeing these…I’m sorry Mrs.Baker Lady. We’re over.

                      10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                      10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                      Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

                      1. It burns more fat.

                      Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

                      2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

                      Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

                      3. It saves you money.

                      Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

                      4. It increases your immune system.

                      Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

                      5. It makes you face your fears head on.

                      People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

                      6. You will feel better in your clothes.

                      When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

                      7. You will embrace vulnerability.

                      When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

                      8. You will show the world the real you.

                      Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

                      9. You will have fun.

                      Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

                      10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

                      Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

                      What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
