Chocolate frosted (paleo) honey cupcakes!

So lets get down to business. Paleo Cupcakes. Have you ever? Well maybe you have but I doubt that you have on THIS LEVEL. These guys are so good that even my very non-paleo boyfriend scoffed them down without the usual long pause and then “it tastes okay for something paleo…”. Not even the bat of an eyelid.

SO MUCH NEWS! So little time! So the wedding – WOW. It was the funnest, most emotional, whirlwind-of-awesome wedding I have ever been to! Caryn looked… breath taking-ly beautiful. Had to post a pic here for you all to see, just cause. Wow.

So after being man-down-almost-dead-hating-life-sad-sorry-for-myself sick for 2 weeks I am finally re-entering the world of the living. I can breathe through my nose again and walk down (and almost up) the stairs without gasping for air. Being back, finally, I can start posting all the delicious recipes I kept promising!

Chicken Broccoli Bake

Helloooooo! So I am actively trying to post more dinner / main dishes cause I know that what most people struggle with is the day-to-day stuff. Making treats and fancy pancy breakfasts, and all that jazz, is all well and good… but when you come home to steamed chicken and beans in the evening, all of the paleo brownies in the world will not make it better.

Paleo Brownies

So – the brownies. They are not super low-cal, so for weight loss just don’t eat the entire batch, in one sitting, by yourself ;) but they are low-carb, refined sugar free and pretty damn delicious. And they freeze super well.

Paleo Bread Rolls

Yes you heard me! BREAD. PALEO BREAD! heeeeeee. These are another tried and tested favourite from Caryn’s mom, Ingrid! They dont reeeeealllyyyy taste like bread. Seriously. I mean what can replace the wonderful sweet and squishy floury gluten-filled clouds of delicious-ness that is a Ciabatta roll? Or a Portuguese roll? Or French loaf? Mmmmm. No. These guys are not a perfect bread replacement, BUT they sure do well for carb-free, paleo bread rolls! What I do with these (as I do with most paleo snacks) is I freeze them and take out one as I need, otherwise you have the worry of trying to eat them all in like 2 days and that isn’t awesome.

Paleo Walnut Cranberry Banana Bread

So this very successful banana bread recipe was the favourite of the day – SO easy and quick, only 2 dirty dishes including the loaf pan! What I do as well, with most of the paleo stuff I bake, is I cut it up and freeze it the day it’s made and then just take out a slice when I want, defrost/toast/pop it in the oven. That way you can eat everything at your leisure without worrying about things going stale, or alternatively non-healthy-orientated-people eating your hard earned paleo goodies.

Cheap Eats // Winter Vegetable Egg Roast

Written by , Posted in Cheap Eats, Mains

Winter-Veg-Egg-Roast-04

First off, this recipe is not meant to be a culinary masterpiece, nor is it meant to require a lot of skill or technique. The whole point here is to make a simple, delicious, healthy meal for mega cheap. I was inspired to do this for a few reasons, the first of which is that life is expensive! In SA with all of these public holidays from March-May, it got even more so! Also, people often think that eating healthily/paleo is way more expensive than ‘regular’ eating.
