Paleo Protein Bars

Written by , Posted in Snacks

Paleo-Protein-Bars-04

Word on the street is that people should have protein within the 30 minutes straight after a weights workout. It helps with muscle recovery and ensure you don’t end up injured do to tearing over-worked muscles that didn’t get the nutrients they need to recover! During a workout you end up creating “micro tears” in your muscles (apparently) and taking protein directly after a heavy workout just immediately starts sending the hormones, enzymes, cellular messengers, nucleic acids, and immune-system components that your muscles need to recover! :)

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!! I hope this finds you adequately excited for the upcoming festive season and the ever nearing holiday that I am sure everyone in the world has earned three times over. While everyone in sunny South Africa either makes the great trek down to the beachy destinations for Christmas and New Year, or reclines at their pool in a coast-less city for the holidays, I will be flying for like a gazillion hours over to the FREEZING city of New York!

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

Paleo-Bread-Rolls-05

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.
