I always say that eating great food is just a small part of what makes us healthy and well. We all know about the benefits of getting good sleep, stressing less and moving more, but there is another super important key to longevity and prevention of diseases and that is protecting ourselves from unnecessary exposure to environmental toxins. That’s why this guest post from the two lovely ladies at The Paleoish Princesses is so timely and important. We would need a book to cover all of the toxins we should and could be avoiding, so today’s post focuses on the one we’ve all heard of but perhaps are still a little confused about – BPA. Thanks to Rebecca and Madeleine for writing this comprehensive article and providing so many great tips on how we can make our environment healthier.
Recipe: Jalapeno Coconut Paleo Bread with Chipotle Butter
This recipe is inspired by a jalapeño corn bread and chipotle butter I tried at a restaurant in London called Caravan. The original version is essentially a fancy corn bread spiced up with chopped up pickled jalapeños and coriander and served toasted and smothered with chipotle butter. I don’t know what the recipe actually is but I loved it so much that I decided to try and create a paleo version without the corn flour.
Recipe: Maple & sesame apple crisps
What I love about these apple crisps – they are easy to make, to store and to transport around and there are no nuts to worry about so they’re perfect for kids lunches. I love to take them on hiking trips or to have as a little snack and finger food at parties.
I absolutely love salads and I would say that unless I am having some leftovers for lunch, a good old bowl of crunchy vegetables with some tasty meat or fish and a yummy paleo salad dressing is my usual go to option. In today’s post I want to share some of my favourite healthy salad recipes that you can pack layered in a mason jar to take to the office or on a trip.
