Simple Tomato Juice

My friends and I were chatting the other day about how we all had a specific drink we always drink when traveling on an airplane, and really no where else.  For example, one of them always drinks Ginger Ale on the plane.  For me, I almost always get Tomato Juice!  I got to thinking… why only on the plane?  Tomatoes are ridiculously good for you – packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folic acid, and antioxidants.  So today, I made my own!  At home… with fresh tomatoes.  Beat that, airplane tomato juice!

Paleo and Gluten Free Cookies – 4 ways!

Can cookies be paleo?  Probably not really.  But, so what?  Sometimes you want to have one or there’s an occasion (think birthday, etc.) and you would like one as paleo as you can get it.  What does that even mean?  It means, with more REAL ingredients, and less of that overly processed crap you get when you just buy cookies at Walmart.  For example, these cookies are either made with coconut flour or almond flour/meal as base, and honey as sweetener.  I’ve assembled my paleo cookies recipe list, and here it is!
