Hi friends- here’s a look at our week and a round-up of our favorite cinnamon recipes and snacks!
Finn can’t wait to dive head first into Easy Paleo Meals by The Spunky Coconut! The photo index of recipes makes choosing which ones to make first that much easier! We are also eager to try some of her new baking mixes that are comprised of the basic grain-free flour mixes that make-up nearly all the baked recipes in her new cookbook.
It’s not all fancy recipes and baked goods though. For us, paleo is a nutrient-dense approach to a low inflammatory lifestyle, which means lots of vegetables and meats. Like this week’s amazing salad goodness! Paleo doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or time-consuming – this combo is simply store bought organic greens topped with carrot ribbons, sliced almonds, and Safe Catch Tuna with Chosen Foods Mayo and Sea Veg Sea Salt. Affordable AND nutrient dense!
We also got to enjoy a long weekend, which was absolutely wonderful. It started off with a celebration reception for our friends Brent & Heather at Virginia is for Hunter Gatherers. It was a rare treat to get to attend such a fancy gala (without the boys) and eat a paleo-friendly meal and gluten-free wedding case. This healthy lifestyle allows us to feel our best and still live the life we want; it’s never about perfection, but rather finding what works for you. Our best tips for starting, sustaining, and thriving are in Real Life Paleo. Find it —> here!
Part of the way we live Paleo in real life is to do fun things as a family that make the boys excited about healthy food, like apple picking! It has become a family tradition to go out, get sunshine, fresh air, and learn about different breads of produce while exploring new farms. Best of all, this year when we got home Matt made The Best Paleo Apple Crisp!
The leaves are turning, cool weather is setting in, and we’re all about that Cinnamon! Especially after our apple-picking weekend, we’re ready to put cinnamon on all the things. Here are our favorite cinnamon eats:
SNACKS WITH CINNAMON!
Rx Bars are one of our go-to bars. I’ve always got one stashed in my desk drawer, purse, and gym bag. We love that they are made with egg white protein; and the Rx Apple Cinnamon is a perfect fall time flavor!
We love so many of Steve’s products, and their granola and granola bars were one of the first paleo products we discovered and enjoyed. The Paleokrunch Bar, Pumpkin flavor is loaded with cinnamon and fall flavors.
Mikey’s Cinnamon Raisin Muffins are a newer product that we got to try for the first time a couple months ago. The texture is great, and the Cinnamon Raisin flavor is such a perfect breakfast comfort food!
A great after-school or travel snack, Bare Cinnamon Apple Chips have just the right hint of cinnamon and the boys love them!
Paleonola has such fun flavors, and naturally one of our favorites is their Paleonola Apple Pie (we get it at OSPS). Perfect with grass-fed yogurt or homemade almond milk.
You just know that anything Bill and Hayley of Primal Palate put their name on is going to be good! If you’re a cinnamon-fanatic, or looking for a special gift for the baker in your life, the Sweet Pack of spices from Primal Palate is a great choice!
These all organic spices are some of the freshest and most potent cinnamon-based spices you can find anywhere! The pack comes with Pumpkin Pie Spice, Apple Pie Spice, and Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. Learn more about them here —> HERE!
