If you could eat grain for ONE day, what would you have? Pizza? Chocolate brownies? Possibly enter a taco-eating contest? What if you could still enjoy these things, without having to give up Paleo? I’m thoroughly convinced no chef is more creative than a Paleo chef. Who else would think of turning zucchini into pasta? Or almonds into cookies? Or coconut in tortilla wraps? You’ll be shocked at what you can still enjoy on Paleo. And if you don’t believe me, just check out the list below. -Kara
“I could never go Paleo, because I could never live without pizza.” Yea, we’ve all heard this one before. Luckily, we’ve seen pizza crusts made out of cauliflower, almond flour, and even eggplant; and now, there’s a recipe for Pizza Stuffed Peppers by Simple Roots Wellness.
2. Ramen Noodles
3. Chocolate Chip Cookies
4. Graham Crackers
Graham crackers and frosting. Graham crackers and marshmallows (s’mores, hello). Graham crackers with peanut butter. However you like to enjoy them, these Chocolate Sunbutter Grahams from Paleo Crumbs could be used for all of the above.
Miss the good old days when you had Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast, Fruit Loops for lunch, and Honey Bunches of Oats for dinner? This Paleo Granola from Becomingness might be just what you need to get through your cereal addiction.
You’re not spending $4 on a latte anymore, but yet miss it more than ever. Try this Mocha Frappuccino by Vibrant Life Army Wife to get your ‘Bucks fix. And guess what? It’s 21 Day Sugar Detox approved.
7. Peanut Butter Anything
If you do not appreciate the wonders of the peanut butter – chocolate flavor combo, I do not understand you. Reese’s peanut butter cups used to be my kryptonite. Luckily, this Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Bread from My Purple Spoon bring all those flavors back.
8. Mexican Food
10. Chinese Take-Out
