Paleo Brazil Nuts, Lime and Hemp Power Bars

Paleo Brazil Nut, Lime, & Hemp Power Bars-4095

I am so pleased to introduce Tessa. One of the first ‘friends’ I made on this crazy thing called the internet. Her website offers endless, seriously ENDLESS allergen free recipes. Whatever allergies you might have, she’s got a recipe that can help. Which is no small thing considering we’re talking about casein, gluten, corn, sugar free and Paleo. Most surprisingly is that there is no shortage of baking and treats on her sight that can fit almost any dietary restrictions. So you can have fun too.

Thank you everyone for welcoming Tessa from

This recipe was born of a flavor combination of a shortbread cookie I had in my past: a truly magical combination of Brazil nuts and lime.

Before those cookies…Brazil nuts were very under appreciated in my world.  Now I wonder how I didn’t always love them.  SO buttery and SO nutritious!

TV Tuesday #16 – 5 Minute 4 Ingredient Raw Power Bars (DF, GF, Sugar Free, Vegan)

What’s the number 1 reason most people give for not eating healthy?

Not enough time.

What’s the second reason?

It’s expensive.

What if you had one recipe that took 5 minutes to make (seriously, no hyperbole here), had super cost effective ingredients, and was nutritionally dense? What if that recipe was so flexible that the ingredients could be subbed in and out to accommodate available ingredients, allergies and budgets?

Well that sounds like magic. Let me show you how to make it in under 5 minutes…

Homemade Chocolate Banana Power Bars – Vegan, Grain Free, Dairy Free

Though Spring teases us with it’s appearance every few days, it has not been nice enough for me to get out onto my road bike in the mornings. Skinny little tires and slick roads just means an accident waiting to happen. Luckily I have a trainer for my bike. It’s a neat little device that clips onto my back wheel and allows me to ride indoors – at least until nicer weather appears. The problem is locating that trainer.

Some of you might be asking, why not go out later in the day when the frost is no longer a problem? One thing I know about myself, is that if I haven’t worked out by 10:30 am, it probably won’t happen. Less than a 5% chance for sure. It’s important to know yourself after all. Why fight it? I prefer to work with my patterns and this in turn increases my success rate. When I say success, I simply mean I’m successful at moving more.

Back to the trainer…
