December 2013 Highlights: Posts I Enjoyed
This month has flown by. It’s been an amazing month despite the busy start I had with finishing up some difficult classes. I have two semesters left to complete my Bachelor’s degree in Public Health and I can’t wait! I have a feeling it’s a very exciting year ahead of us… 🙂
I’ve had the pleasure of reading some great blog posts this past year and I’m going to share the ones I’ve enjoyed the most this past month.
This post on the patience it takes for fertility to return after birth control usage really piqued my interest. I’ve always been skeptical about birth control usage. I have been reading Cleansing for Conception by Donielle Baker lately, which is an amazing book for those struggling with their fertility. Healthy babies are one of my passions, and the book gives great advice for those trying to conceive and also includes a meal plan and step-by-step advice.
This informational post on why to avoid almond flour (at least in excess) is also a must-read.
I want to try whipping up a batch of these paleo egg muffins for my son. He is constantly hungry and they seem simple and yummy enough. I found a good write-up on milk kefir–I love the idea of using milk kefir for weight loss. And this apricot chicken is going on my menu, looks soooo delicious!
I don’t really like chocolate…true story. But I did used to love Almond Joys! I look forward to trying this with less chocolate and way more coconut! Bonus is they would make an awesome edible holiday gift!
I have a soft-spot in my heart for homemade eggnog. My family used to make it together when we were kids, and we would spike it with some rum. We were in Jamaica, so we weren’t breaking the law 😉 I don’t think we were, anyway… I actually have two versions of my own to share next month…yes, kinda late…
While I can’t enjoy these cookies just yet (due to some ingredients that we must avoid right now), I have been assured these nut butter breakfast cookies are very, very yummy. I would make them with peanut butter, of course! Love cookies? Check out the book Just Eat The Damn Cookie, which includes many cookie recipes including ones that are Paleo/GAPS-legal. I’ve really enjoyed looking through it and will be trying some of them soon!
