Going Grain Free has its challenges. For example, sometimes you just want a granola bar or a cookie! But there are better options that are grain free, sugar-free and just as yummy! Did you try the Pecan and Coconut Bars from the other day? Those are a big hit around here and a good mix between a bar and a cookie with just the right amount of sweet. Or try today’s recipe which taste similar to a shortbread cookie. (Even my husband said so and he’s a hard one to convince!!)
Trying to fit more vegetables into your diet can be difficult and perhaps boring. I love vegetables, but I get tired of eating salads sometimes, so soups are another great option to fit in more vegetables. Changing up the seasonings and adding different seasonal vegetables offers a wide variety of tasty options. Use whatever veggies you have in the house!
We don’t eat potatoes around here too often, as they are pretty starchy. But sometimes it’s nice to have a warm cozy comfort food and this is one of our favorites! Try adding carrots and/sweet potatoes for some variation. Rosemary Roasted Red Potatoes
So…carob chips? Have you tried them? I have tried to sneak them into several different recipes and they have just not compared to the real thing. Seriously, sometimes a girl’s just got to have CHOCOLATE! Finally found some way that I like them…paired with almonds and coconut for a crunchy not too sweet treat!
One of my more popular posts on the blog are my Chewy Quinoa Oat Bars. I have gotten many comments here and on Facebook from those of you who have tried them, thank you! I have been attempting to throw together a recipe for grain free bars and finally I’m able to share that with you here today!
