Pepperoni Pizza Pockets – Bite-Sized Paleo-Friendly Appetizer or Snack

Pepperoni Pizza Pockets – Bite-Sized Paleo-Friendly Appetizer or Snack

0 from 0 ratings My kids used to be totally addicted to pepperoni pizza pockets. The only downside to that is while they’re indeed quite a tasty pizza snack, they’re also extremely unhealthy thanks to all of the processed ingredients that go into making them. And that’s where this paleo pepperoni pizza pockets recipe comes in. Finally there’s a way to enjoy pizza pockets that are made with nothing but paleo-approved ingredients. The dough is low carb and high in both fiber and heart-healthy fats thanks to the use of ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, and psyllium husk. And

Easy Paleo Pizza Crust to Satisfy Your Pizza Cravings

0 from 0 ratings If you’re anything like me and the idea of giving up pizza is a no-go, don’t you worry. I was in your shoes not too long ago and look at me now—I’m 100% paleo and haven’t looked back since I made the switch. That’s because I realized that switching to a paleo diet didn’t have to mean eliminating foods from my diet at all—I just had to substitute. Take this easy paleo pizza crust for example. It’s the same pizza crust we all know and love, but it’s made with paleo approved ingredients like almond flour,

0 from 0 ratings I thought switching over to a paleo diet meant giving up my favorite food in the world—pizza. I was honestly debating if I would even give it a try because I just love pizza so much and had it at least twice a week. But rather than giving up on my diet altogether, I tried my hand at paleo-approved pizzas. I was honestly shocked at how easy it was to make a pizza paleo-friendly. When it comes down to it, it’s really just the crust and sauce that’s the problem but fortunately for you, I have

After a thorough review of the site and it’s off page factors I listed out the issues the site faced and what would correct the site’s performance. Diagnosing SEO Problem Its important to perform an SEO Audit of a site to determine what needs to change. Backlinks: Hardly any domains linked to the site using the brand name as the anchor text. This was the greatest issue the site faced in ranking. On-Page SEO: Rather than using <h1><h2> header tags the site utilized CSS styled <div> tags. These visually looked the same to a visitor but that failed to provide the direction that the header tags would to a search engine bot. Technical SEO: The site load time was 20 seconds.

0 from 0 ratings If you’re a fan of cream of chicken soup, you’re going to absolutely love the recipe that I’ll be sharing today. It makes a homemade crockpot cream of chicken soup that’s 100% paleo approved. No can opener needed! I used to always buy canned cream of chicken soup, but quite often it would be full of unhealthy additives and processed ingredients. Making it from scratch avoids that issue, as you’re able to make sure that the soup is made with nothing but nourishing, whole food ingredients. If you’re wondering if this has been tested on the kids, the answer is yes, they love it, too! Source ...
By Leo Babauta All my life, I’ve struggled with being half-committed. Not always, but more than I’d usually like to admit. I say I’m going to stick to something, and I actually believe it … but then a week later (sometimes sooner, sometimes longer), I falter. I justify it. I feel guilty. I try not to think about it. I resolve to do better. Repeat, for life. Recently I read a post by a coach and teacher I respect, Kendra Cunov, on Getting Clear on Commitment. It was thought-provoking, as always, and made me sit down and re-examine what I’m truly committed to. Not “I’m committed, but …” What I’m truly committed to. I’ve done this before, notably last December when I was doing an annual re-examination of my life and commitments. It’s always useful to re-examine what you’re committed to, and to re-commit. But as the year has progressed, it’s become clear that I’m only truly committed to some of the things on my list. So I’ve been spending some time looking at what makes me truly committed in one area (my family, for example), and not so committed in another (reading books). What I’ve found is that when ...

by Sarah Pope MGA | Updated: Jun 20, 2019 | Affiliate links A small but still sizable percentage of people today are unable to eat butter. Typically, the reasons are due to a dairy allergy or restrictive food philosophy. This is a shame considering that butter, especially if from grazing animals, is one of the most nutrient-rich and affordable traditional foods. The reassuring news is that there are five excellent substitutes for butter that are great tasting and whole-food based. There is no need to settle for butter substitutes made from rancid or even genetically modified fats! Just say no to whipped butter blends and other cheap, mass-produced vegetable oil based spreads like “Smart” Balance! The Healthiest Butter Substitute By far, the most nutritious and best butter substitute is ghee. Ghee, or clarified butter, has been used for thousands of years by Indian cultures. In fact, traces of ghee have been found on fragments of Indian pottery dating as far back as 6500 BC! In these cultures, ghee served as a very important source of the elusive yet critical MK-4 version of vitamin K2. No plant-based butter substitute contains this nutrient. The vast majority of people allergic to butter can ...

So you can imagine how I was a little bit worried when I first switched over to the paleo diet, considering the emphasis on keeping your carb intake controlled. Fortunately, there are all kinds of little tips and tricks you can do with the paleo diet to come up with low carb alternatives. One of the best alternatives for rice that I’ve found is to use cauliflower rice. It offers nearly the exact same texture while keeping things nice and low carb, so it fits in perfectly with this instant pot chicken and cauliflower rice soup recipe. Source ...

What does it mean to be in the weight maintenance phase? We hear so much about weight loss and weight gain — whether it’s how to do it or when to do it, it seems like everyone is talking about it. But what about weight maintenance? We’ve all had our bouts of desire to change our body in one way or another, but there’s something to be said about the idea of being content with where we are. It’s time to shine a light on the beauty of weight maintenance and why it’s a great phase to be in. What is Weight Maintenance? Surprisingly enough, there is no official definition of weight maintenance (). For our purposes, when we say weight maintenance, we essentially mean the act of abstaining from significant weight change — whether that be an increase or a decrease. For some, weight maintenance is something you have been doing for your entire life. If your weight has remained consistent for as long as you can remember, this is you. On the other hand, you can also maintain your weight after having experienced substantial fluctuation. Realistically, maintenance isn’t staying at the exact same number for the rest of ...

0 from 0 ratings When it comes to making paleo soup recipes, I’m a firm believer in keeping things simple. Sure, there’s definitely a time and a place for some of the more fancy, ‘gourmet’ style soups, don’t get me wrong. But sometimes all you need to make an immensely satisfying meal that puts a smile on your face is something as simple as a recipe that combines chicken with a hearty mix of vegetables. That’s exactly what you’re getting with today’s recipe—an instant pot paleo chicken vegetable soup that delivers on taste and nutritional value. Not only does this soup provide you with plenty of protein, it also contains a ton of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Source ...
by Sarah Pope MGA | Updated: Jun 21, 2019 | Affiliate links Once you’ve learned how to make real butterscotch (a must since all the commercial stuff is fake), it’s a hop, skip and a jump to make a butterscotch latte. No doubt, if you’re reading this you’ve tried and are in love with commercial butterscotch lattes, of which the Starbucks smoked butterscotch latte is the most popular. I’d like to break down what’s actually in that stuff before I give you the healthy version, which literally takes 5 minutes to make. Smoked Butterscotch Latte Here are the ingredients in Starbucks’ seasonal smoked butterscotch latte: (1) Milk, Smoked Butterscotch Sauce [Sugar, Brown Sugar, Corn Syrup, Heavy Cream (Milk), Water, Butter (Cream, Salt), Natural Smoke Flavors, Gum Acacia, Salt, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherols], Brewed Espresso, Smoked Butterscotch Sugar Topping [Sugar, Natural Smoke Flavor And Other Flavors, Fruit And Vegetable Colors (Apple, Purple Carrot, Hibiscus)].

By Leo Babauta There is a part of us, in all of us, that worries that we’re not good enough. Not good enough to succeed, to handle the chaos of life, to be loved. It’s the reason we get anxiety and stress — if we’re not good enough, what will happen when everything collapses and we can’t handle it? It’s the reason for social anxiety — if we’re not good enough, what will happen when people find out? It’s the reason for attachment to social media and constant distraction, for procrastination and unhealthy habits, and much more. What if we trusted that we are good enough, that we don’t have to do anything to prove it, that we don’t have to worry about that anymore? We could be at peace. Completely present with the moment in front of us. Completely focused on the task before us. Completely open to the people around us. Completely in love with the world as it is. The way to build this trust is to meditate on our basic goodness. The Basic Goodness in Each of Us We each have, at our core, a goodness that we are born with, that is our basic nature ...

The law of cause and effect is a very simple principle For every effect in your life there is a specific cause. Sometimes it is referred to as the iron law of the universe. The premise is that everything happens for a reason, that there are no accidents, that we live in an orderly universe that is governed by law; but not laws as we tend to think of them but rather natural laws. I don’t buy into the notion that everything that happens in your life is because of something you did right or wrong, because clearly sometimes things are out of your control. For example: if someone mounts the pavement and runs me over, one could argue that the cause was me happening to be in that place at that specific time, and what caused the driver to mount the pavement was drinking and driving. But I had no prior knowledge that this would occur, so how would I have avoided it? Others might argue that a bad conscious decision led me to be in that place at that time, perhaps a decision that happened much earlier in the day. In that sense, the law of cause and ...
From better gut health to lower cholesterol levels, the potential tempeh benefits are endless. If you’re just getting started with plant-based eating, there’s a good chance you may not have tried tempeh, let alone even heard of it before. However, this delicious ingredient doubles as a versatile vegan food and a great source of protein, prebiotics, vitamins, and minerals. Plus, it’s super flavorful, easy to prepare, and linked to a long list of health benefits. So what exactly is tempeh? And is tempeh good for you? Keep reading for everything you need to know about this power-packed protein source. What is Tempeh? Tempeh is a plant-based protein food that originates in Indonesia. Traditional tempeh is made from soybeans that have undergone fermentation, which is a process in which carbohydrates are broken down by bacteria and yeast. The soybeans are then pressed and bound together to form a dense, cake-like patty. In addition to soy-based tempeh, there are several other variations of tempeh available as well, including tempeh made from beans, flax, barley, or wheat. Tempeh has a firm texture and nutty yet earthy taste. Like other soy products such as tofu, it also easily takes on the flavors of whatever ...

0 from 0 ratings One of the best investments that I’ve ever made is without a doubt my crockpot. It makes it such a breeze to prepare my meals for the entire week ahead of time. With that in mind, for the last few weeks I keep coming back to this great recipe for making an easy 5-ingredient crockpot paleo chicken soup. Since the recipe calls for such a small number of ingredients, it’s important to make each one of them count, and I can happily report that’s definitely the case here. Onion, celery, carrots, and parsley all go together beautifully with the chicken breasts to make one of the most satisfying bowls of paleo chicken soup that you’ll ever try. When you’re craving for something simple that does the job, this is an excellent option. Source ...
by Sarah Pope MGA | Updated: Jun 20, 2019 | Affiliate links If you love butterscotch as I do, perhaps you have wondered if it can be made without brown sugar. For a long time, I didn’t think it was possible because the classic method for making authentic butterscotch involves caramelizing the brown sugar into melted butter. Forget about buying authentic butterscotch or caramel (made with white sugar), by the way. Every single brand on the market that I’ve meticulously checked, including the organic ones, are fake…there’s no butter in them! You can thank the misguided modern fat phobia for the complete disappearance of real butterscotch. If you really love it, you will have to make it yourself like I have for years! Butterscotch: All of the Flavor with No Cane Sugar! You might be wondering how fruit-sweetened butterscotch could possibly taste right. Using other whole sweeteners like dark maple syrup or honey (shouldn’t be heated anyway!) doesn’t work well, after all. How could fruit alone succeed? However, if you go out on a limb and make butterscotch with date syrup, it tastes fantastic! The reason is that date syrup from California has butterscotch overtones already! Even Middle Eastern date ...
“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” ― Pema Chodron By Leo Babauta I was talking with a friend yesterday who is going through a very hard time, and of all the emotions that have come up for them during this struggle (anger, despair, etc.), shame has been the most challenging emotion of all. We all feel shame, and it’s perfect OK to feel it. There’s nothing wrong with us if we feel shame — it’s a very human emotion. But it isn’t very helpful in most situations, and so we can bring mindfulness to bear on the shame. And practice letting it go. Before we can let go, it’s worthwhile to mindfully work with our shame. What Shame Shows Us When I said shame isn’t very helpful, I didn’t tell the full truth — actually, it’s very useful, in showing us what we think about ourselves. When we feel shame, it usually is because we’ve done something that we think says something shameful about us. And so it shows us where we believe there is something wrong about us, something inadequate, ugly, unworthy of love. Of course, ...
Giving medical cannabis to infants is a difficult taboo to shift, but new research is paving the way. The launch of a clinical trial examining the use of CBD in newborns suffering from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (brain damage caused by lack of oxygen) means new hope for the million plus babies born each year with this condition. These infants are often left severely disabled, and many die. Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) caused by asphyxia is the leading cause of infant fatalities in the United States (1). Despite this, HIE is considered a rare disease as it only affects 2 or 3 newborns in every 1000. Factors leading to HIE include maternal diabetes, lack of blood circulation to the placenta, preeclampsia, congenital infections of the fetus, drug and alcohol addiction, as well as complications during delivery. Premature babies are at particularly high risk of death or disability if HIE occurs after delivery. Right now, the standard treatment for severe HIE is hypothermia – reducing the baby’s body temperature to 33-34°C. Hypothermia has been found to have neuroprotective effects, reducing brain inflammation and glutamate production, as well as lowering the production of free radicals. Given within 6 hours of birth, hypothermia can ...
