It’s been less than a week into my 5-Month Paleo Challenge and I have to say it’s been going alright. Having the right snacks is the toughest part for me which is why I’m excited to share this simple, paleo-friendly Beet Hummus recipe! For those of you who aren’t paleo, I also have a an amazing addition to this recipe that you will love – goat cheese. I’m a fan of good ole’ chickpea hummus but sometimes you gotta mix it up!
Prost to Paleo Pretzels!
Last month, I was invited to an Oktoberfest-themed potluck. When you think of Oktoberfest, you think of beer, lederhosen, and pretzels! You probably don’t think of gluten free pretzels though 😅 Well, for those of you who can’t have gluten or if like me, sometimes choose to go gluten-free, here is a Paleo Pretzels recipe for you to still join in on the fun!
Now, if you are looking for the exact same texture and taste from this recipe as you would from say, a Wetzel’s Pretzels, you might be disappointed. But these pretzels are actually really soft with just the right amount of chew and they pull apart like the real deal! They remind me of warm bagels, which are my faaav! Plus, these Paleo Pretzels have an extra garlic-y goodness. Check it out!
My Main Squeeze: Homemade Lemon Curd
Summertime for me is all about fruit – fresh, or frozen, or baked, or in cocktails 😉 One of my favorite fruit is lemon. I love the tart when mixed with a little sweetness. My dream is to one day have lemon trees in my backyard. Just the sight of bright lemons make me happy!
So, when I was craving for something summery and sweet last week, I thought about lemon curd! I know the name isn’t the most appealing but lemon curd is awesome. You can use it in so many ways though I dare you to try and not eat it by the spoonful (you can’t do it). I’ve had store brought lemon curd but like in most cases, I prefer the homemade stuff. I’ve tried a few different recipes and I want to share with you my favorite so far!
