I’m a San Diego Native who loves food with an insane passion. I’ve been known to drink almond milk straight from the carton and expensive wine out of plastic red cups. My favorite meal is, has, and always will be dessert.

*Part of a healthy lifestyle is enjoying life. To me enjoying life involves the occasional splurge or two. This blog is meant to be a resource for Paleo-ish sweets and treats. I do not endorse eating sweets on a daily basis, Paleo or not, but rather on occasion. You know your body better than I do, so it’s up to you to decide if eating Paleo treats is a weekly, monthly, or yearly thing. My recipes are meant as a go to if you are having a dessert crisis (yes, needing chocolate is considered a crisis) or event that requires you to make something that everyone can eat and enjoy, that doesn’t require you to eat ingredients you’d rather not i.e gluten, soy, dairy, legumes, etc., due to allergies, intolerances, or personal choice. It’s also for my friends who are sick of me posting pictures of my Paleo food creations on my Facebook page. Get a blog! they said. Better than get a life I suppose.
