#Microblog Mondays - A very Paleo Holiday

#Microblog Mondays?  Read more about it here!

There are not many things that I like about CrossFit, as you all know very well by now.  The one thing that I can honestly say that I am grateful to CrossFit for is the Paleo type of diet that we have been following for well over a year now.  Sure we are not perfect 100% of the time, but we eat a lot healthier because of it and we feel better, too. 
Cutting out gluten has made me realize that I may, in fact, have a sensitivity towards it.  When I eat a regular cookie (with flour/wheat) it doesn't take long for me to feel like total crap afterwards.  Seriously, I get stomach pains, some yucky bloating, and have to lay down.  Not fun.  Especially for someone who loves baking and eating Christmas cookies like I do.  In the past, I have taken days off work to bake cookies around the clock for days and days (no joke) to give as presents to family, friends, and coworkers.  Sure it is very tiring, but I love it.  I miss it. 
Getting into the spirit!
I have decided to continue the tradition, but with a slightly different twist.  I'm making Paleo/gluten free cookies this year!  In past years I would make 13-15 different kinds.  I am going to have to scale that back this year due to cost (almond flour ain't cheap) and time constraints (20 month old anyone?).
Here is the list that I am working on.  I plan on baking this weekend Fri-Sun.  I'll check in next week and let you know how it went.  Crossing my fingers!!
Who says Paleo can't taste good?

  1. Have fun making cookies! And let us know how they come out.

  2. Those no-bake almond joy bars look sooooo good. I think I may need to try them out.

  3. My husband and I follow a diet similar to Paleo (he does 'mostly' Paleo, while I follow a protein-forward diet after weight loss surgery). And some of these look like they'd be good for us too! Thanks for the links! And good luck with the baking; especially given that you have a 20-month old to help you out! :)

  4. I'm from Ohio and am very intrigued by the Paleo Buckeyes. I think I may have to try that recipe out for January 1.
