  • We had organic frozen pizza from Aldis one night when I was too tired to cook. Chris grilled turkey burgers another night. It’s good to have easy meals on hand for those crazy days!

Snacks and Desserts

    • Pita Crackers with Brie and Pepperoni~ The pepperoni is the cheat and some may say the cheese is too. I will say that this Brie is the real deal. I won’t eat more than four of these at a time…though I wish I could eat ten. I’ll be good. The pita crackers are much crispier and lighter than Ritz crackers, but they are still tasty.

    • Carrots and Celery with Ranch~ an easy snack. Spruce it up with peanut butter or Ranch.

  • Organic Corn Chips and Cheese Sauce ~ So this feels like cheating all the way, but it’s only a small cheat with the cheese sauce. The corn chips are actually healthy. Yaa!
  • Organic vanilla ice cream with Paleo dark chocolate drizzled on top and carob chips. Warning: Carob chips are super bitter! I like chocolate better.

Breakfast

This does not look or taste healthy…which makes it all the better! The peanut butter is strong, but I love peanut butter so it didn’t bother me. You’d never know there’s sweet potato in it. You can probably use almond butter if you prefer.

  • Cherry pie pockets ~ I mixed these two recipes.

The sugar in the cherry filling, though raw and organic, is definitely a cheat. But the pockets were still too dry and bland for us. We added organic ice cream to make it sweeter. Okay, so…I’m not even going to make an excuse up for that one. I’ve added the cherry filling to a couple things. I have some in the freezer too. I just think the crust was too plain.

Taking the pits out by hand took hours!
