Cookie Dough Truffles | Paleo

This recipe was built solely on a craving…

I’ve been yo-yo-ing back and forth with transitioning into a full time paleo inspired lifestyle.  Seriously it was like a yo-yo…   3 days on… 3 days off… and back to on… back to off.  What always kills me is the sugar. I always felt like that whole sugar is an addiction thing was totally bogus until I successfully completed Whole 30…  but let me tell you… as a graduate… sugar really messes with you!!!   It effects your inflammation, it affects your skin, it affects your mood.   It’s just an all around bad time for the empire.

So… one Saturday afternoon, I was determined to stick to the plan… but I wanted something… so I came up with this…

Chocolate Chip Cookies sounded good… a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup sounded even better… so I married the two into a Cookie Dough Truffle. Yum.

These are beyond easy to make and would be a great alternative for anyone looking to make something sweet this year for Valentine’s Day!!!  Be sure to snap a photo and let me know how you like them if you try them!!!

Chicken & Cauliflower Rice Soup

 

I am not a winter girl, like give me all the sunshine and above 80 days you can find and I’m a happy camper but even in the dead of summer… I’m making soup. I know..  I know… everyone dives into their salads but nope not me… soups are my jam. Chicken and Rice Soup is a long standing favorite in my house but have changed up my cooking habits after winning Whole30, so this has now become one of my all time favorites.  It’s packed with so much flavor and if you take the time to develop each layer of ingredients in the pan, the payoff is more than worth it.

 

One of my favorite spots to grab groceries is Fresh Thyme or if you’re on the west coast, Sprouts.  Sprouts was one of my favorites when I lived out west, so I always feel like I’m home.  All stores are the same, isn’t it funny how there is comfort in familiarity, … anyway on the back wall by the mushrooms is their fresh herb section.  I always pick up a pack of Poultry Seasoning… and almost always lasts for the entire week of recipes.
