I Candy-pend On You

Blog Post by Constructive Fiticism

What is it about candy? Why do we find it soo irresistible? Or better yet, why can't we find it *resistable*? Thanks to a "sugar intolerance," as the doctors called it in the '70s, my body doesn't react to it in the same way as most people.

Simple Homemade Chili

Temps are in the 80's in Houston right now, you know what that means... It's fall! Time to roll out with the fall recipes. This chili skips the beans and adds a few ingredients you may not have thought to ever add to your chili (think cinnamon). Are you still reading? Good! If you don't like cinnamon, don't worry, you're not going to taste a strong cinnamon flavor at all, it just helps enhance the other flavors in the chili.

Healthy Shake & Bake

Kraft had it right with the idea of Shake & Bake. Easy prep and and easy clean up! The only problem is that Shake & Bake is not whole 30, paleo, clean eating, (the list goes on). I took one of my friends regular dinner meals (Ranch Breaded Chicken) and turned it into a clean eating recipe everyone will enjoy!

If You Don’t Make Sacrifices for What You Want, You WILL Sacrifice What You Want

What’s it going to be?

What will you sacrifice this week? Getting to the gym first thing in the morning means you’re going to have to go to bed a little earlier or give up sleeping in. How important is getting to the gym for you? How bad do you really want to get in shape?

Losing weight will require you to give up some foods you love and maybe eating some foods you don’t love.

Paleo Fruit Compote

This reminds me of a mix of cherry and apple pie! I made this as a dessert and then ate it the next day for breakfast and with lunch! I just can't get enough of this yummy fall recipe. This will be a favorite for everyone, and is paleo, gluten free, dairy free and whole 30 approved!

1 apple (I used red delicious but you can use any apple you prefer)
3 plums
1 cup frozen dark red cherries
3 large dates
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
