I'm a Christian wife & homeschooling mama, saved by faith through grace. I changed my family's diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to healthy, delicious & nutritious traditional foods. I've recently discovered there's a name for the way that I eat. It's called Primal or Paleo (I like the diet and think of the men and women who worked hard from sunup to sundown, constantly on the go, eating meat, berries they picked, cheese they made. I do not believe in evolution). No grains, legumes, refined sugars, and no/limited dairy.

Chicken & Dumplings - GFDF

I made these a few months ago. I didn't read the directions and so it took waaaaay longer than it should. Oops. Maybe I should read the directions on new recipes...maybe that'll be a New Year's Resolution. haha.
This is amazing. It tastes wonderful and smells great.
This time I made some changes. I used butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes - butternut squash is much easier to cut with a really sharp knife - who knew? I used the stalks from the kale in place of celery and used kale instead of spinach. I also added kelp flakes for iodine and iron.
You should make it, because it's super yummy.

Chocolate Cake & Ice Cream

I made Paleo Spirt's Chocolate Birthday cake (9" version) last night. As time goes on, it's gotten very moist. So yummy! I did water instead of coffee and honey instead of maple syrup.
I paired it with my Chocolate Ice Cream. So yummy!
It's definitely not an every day thing, there's not enough fat in it to keep me satiated and not craving more, so I'll have to save this for special occasions.
