It's finally here….the ONE and only recipe you can’t live without.
I am sharing it here exclusively for YOU.
Now, before you get too excited, I am going to give you a dose of honesty.
It is NOT a recipe for brownies (paleo or not) nor ice cream nor some alternative version of your favorite pasta dish (you would only be disappointed with anyways since you didn’t want to give up gluten in the first place until I suggested you should give it a try). It is NOT a free pass to throw all caution to the wind and just “enjoy” life frivolously eating candy bars and drinking alcohol because you can. Technically, it isn’t really a complete recipe, only partial.
Yes...you read that correctly. Paleo-Vegetarian Chilli. That was not a mistake. In fact, in the paleo-sphere, it has been quoted by StacyToth (of Paleo Parents) that she eats "more vegetables than a vegetarian." In fact, vegetarianism done properly (eating whole nutrient rich vegetables) has more in common with paleo than not. The main difference is the addition of animal protein.
I am all about celebrating our likeness with each other than our differences...and I love good food. Recently, over the holiday break, I had extra family in town that happen to be vegetarian...and it was snowing...so I made a huge pot of paleo-vegetarian chili. And although I find whole organic food delightful even with minimal seasoning, this recipe was a huge hit for the entire family...even those not vegetarian nor paleo. So here is the recipe.
Again, I apologize for my lack of photo-taking ability...but actually we ate it up so quickly, I almost forgot to even snap a shot!
Special treats, like this, are occasional for our family. The Holiday Season is a great time to enjoy some treats that don’t derail your healthy progress. It is also a great time to offer up some healthy treats to share with family and friends. Most people are surprised about the simplicity and sweetness of the natural fruits and ingredients.
This recipe was derived out of simply pulling from the refrigerator and cupboards to produce a warm dessert for a wintery weekend day.
*** A special note that this is still sweet to our family of five, but we are 3 years into eating whole foods and avoiding excessive sugars. We actually only used ½ TBSP honey as the cream is already sweet. You may need to flex with the honey to suit the stage your family is in***
