To grain or not to grain – that is the Paleo question!

One of the biggest arguments against the Paleo diet that I hear most often is the claim that “if you remove a food group like grains out of your diet, you’ll be missing out on nutrients.”

Funnily enough they never seem to elaborate much more than that, so of course it piqued my curiosity. Is it really true or are they just joshing with us?

White Chocolate Nut Fudge

weight loss

This recipe was too yum not to post on here asap.

So I may have hit on something I like even better than raw cacao chocolate – if that’s even possible?

But oats are good for you…..

healthy, weight loss, slim birdy,

Aaaahhhhh! Oats are coming at me from everywhere – instagram recipe images, friends, daily health snippets and they are touting them as the healthiest breakfast to eat ever.

Vanilla Coconut Bliss Ice-cream

“If it’s stupid but it works – it isn’t stupid.” Lau Tzu

I found this quote on the wall of the Magic Apple Café, which is a fantastic little eatery in Burleigh Queensland serving amazing salads, wholefoods and kick ass healthy desserts. Salads with all kinds of goodness and things going on that I would look in envy and wish I would make them at home. See picture! Magic indeed.
