Coconut butter (the easiest recipe ever)

My summers been pretty great so far. I took a pre college program at the university of Maryland called Terp young scholars. I took a psychology class that was normally taken in a whole semester in 3 weeks! It was a crazy amount of work, but it was fun any since I met a bunch…

Pear-blueberry pancakes/scramble

This breakfast is crazy delicious ! When my dad tried he literally said “wow this is amazing! This is healthy!?”. He couldn’t believe it. It has a slight French toast flavor from the butter or coconut oil and the pear makes it perfectly sweet, but healthy at the same time. I guarantee that anyone who…

Cinnamon Graham Crackers with Raisins

I have been looking for a graham cracker recipe to make a graham cracker crust for the bottom of a cheesecake and I couldn’t find a good one. So I decided to make my own! These graham crackers are delicious and will remind you of your childhood days when you would be sitting by the…

Chocolate Coconut pumpkin granola (nut-free)

I have been looking for a ┬ánut-free granola for so long that wasn’t full of nuts and seeds. Nuts especially since I am very allergic! I literally couldn’t find anything! There are a couple reasons why I did not want to add seeds. Nuts and seeds are very high in omega 6, and while it…

Pumpkin Pie-cocoa bars (coconut flour)

Alright I’ll be the first to admit it: Fruits and veggies get boring sometimes. Once in a while you just gotta change it up a bit and eat something sweet and yummy. I’m totally an advocate for healthy baking because it keeps paleo-followers from going off track, and lets face it… Baked goods taste amazing!…

Yuca pizza

Cinnamon soft and chewy cookies

  These cookies were created in an effort to make holiday cut-out cookies. I wanted to be able to have some cookies during the holidays when everyone else was eating dessert at family gatherings. They didn’t turn out crispy which would be needed for holiday cookies, but they did turn out delicious, moist, and chewy. The added…

Orange-Strawberry Cake (or clementine)

So for the past three years now I haven’t had school on the day after the Superbowl because of snow-storms, and I’m not complaining about it. They might as well just make the Monday after the Superbowl a national holiday. That’ll make everyone happier, and it seems like we’re getting the day off anyway, LOL….

Why Paleo/Primal?

Today there are many critics of the Paleo/Primal lifestyle. People say that humans are meant to be eating grains and legumes and without them, deficiencies will occur. Many doctors and nutritionists recommend 6-11 servings of “healthy whole grains” everyday! But this is simply not healthy. For about 1-2 million years humans have lived as hunter-gatherers…
