This centuries-old probiotic-rich drink […]
Many of you may know that our son was the cause for us finally taking the plunge into paleo. We had toyed with the idea for some time, even attempting the change a year earlier, but it wasn’t until we realized our son needed a change in his diet in order to help him control […]

Homemade almond butter is fresher, healthier, and tastier than store-bought. Maple sugar (which is just dehydrated maple syrup) is used as the sweetener which makes sure that the almond butter consistency isn’t messed up by adding the liquid version of the sweetener. We love this Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter on apple slices and celery sticks.
