Delicious Paleo Treats

So for a very long long long time I have been trying different fad diets. I was all over the place! The worst diet I was on was by medifast. I recently tried a week of it and I fainted by the 6th day. I was eating so little calories that I couldn’t walk across the room. I was crying every night and it really messed with my hormone balance..(not a pretty sight). After speaking with a good friend about the Paleo diet I have decided to commit to it. Which is perfect because I’m studying ancient hunter gathers at ASU right now. I have been reading a book called “Nom, Nom, Paleo” which is super funny and has a bunch of awesome recipes. My favorite blog I have found about Paleo is called “PaleOMG”. I love the name and the writer- plus her recipes look so good I want to run to my kitchen and make everything. I wanted to share one of her recipes with you today because I’m eating it for breakfast tomorrow. I can’t wait to try it and I hope you enjoy it too 🙂 I know it says left over from thanksgiving and since its now February I’m a little late on using those left overs so I would just say add some of your favorite fresh fruit to the mix!

I was finally able to get back to Yoga tonight. I’m very excited to devote my year to improving my yoga practice (Hatha tonight). I would like to note that the Paleo diet helped me get through intermediate yoga no problem. O blood type for the win. 😉
