Christmas Baking in the PaulssonPaleo Household

 We have tried them all over the last few years... the paleo and LCHF recipes for Christmas goodies. We have really given it a good go and eaten our way through tasteless and dry baked goods. We have come to the conclusion that they just don't cut it. It seems that the Christmas recipes just do not work for us.

Sorry paleo-folks. All your recipes look amazing, they really do. And they make my mouth water as I scroll through my Instagram feed. But I have tried one recipe too many on the family.
So, what to do? At Christmas we have decided to compromise on homemade glutenfree baked goods. They clearly have more refined sugar than we would like, but at least we know what has gone into them. And yesterday afternoon, one little girl was very happy to help making the traditional Swedish pepparkakor (gingerbread), glutenfree version with organic corn flour. They taste like they should - amazing! We won't eat them all at once - we promise!!!

A Letter I Received - How Food Can Change Your Life...

I received the following letter from one of my clients.

It made me choke up! Here's the translation: 

"Good evening. Hope all is well with you. I have to share something with you... My father has for many years had high blood pressure, a lot of excess weight and is a diabetic on insulin... He has finally changed his diet.

On the 23rd of August he made up his mind and started eating according to paleo. The results came fast. He lost a lot of weight. Today he was at the doctor's - in 4 months he has decreased his insulin intake from 26 (extremely high) to 6 units. The doctor believes that my father can go off the insulin completely very soon. The doctor has rarely seen such an improvement. My father has been on insulin for many years. Thought I would share this with you. Isn't it fantastic. You were the start of this journey... Thank you for the inspiration. Big hug from A."

Pretty powerful stuff! Imagine what a few changes to your diet can do to change the trajectory of your health...

Lusciously red and earthy #beetrootkvass to cheer me up on a rainy day. "Smakar som en kallsup" 😂 #paulssonpaleo #fermentering #fermentation
