Best Paleo Pizza Crust !

I was so happy with this recipe ! I have tried multiple different Paleo pizza crusts, but non tasted and worked as well as this one! All the others were good , but just not quite like a true good pizza crust. This crust my sister and I both agreed was just as good as a real home made thin sliced pizza crust, the texture was perfect as well as the stability of it, you can hold the pizza in your hand! ( unlike a cauliflower crust ) Hope you love this recipe just as much as me !

Almond Crusted Chicken Breast on Salad With Coconut Aminos Ginger Almond Dressing - Candida Friendly

Well its week 2 of my candida cleanse and Im feel awesome ! Day 3 and 4 were a bit ruff but I expected that . Having done the cleanse before I knew that when your body started killing off the candida you don't feel so good for a few days, but soon you start to feel better and better and then amazing !  I had some left over chicken breasts so I made up this salad, and decided to try and make a raw creamy nut based salad dressing.

Spiralized Zucchini Noodles with Meat Balls And Tomato Sauce - Candida Friendly

I recently got a super cool new kitchen tool which I love! A spiralizer ! I have wanted one for a while now, so I am so happy to have this new tool.  Check out the link below for the spiralizer I got and highly recommend. It makes perfect spirals out of many different vegetables and fruits ! I placed a link below to where you can buy the spiralizer.

The new year has arrived ! Time for a major overhaul! Last semester was stressful and Christmas was to tempting ! haha my best friend and I bot decided to so a 30 day candida cleanse . This is the initial start of my change to a pale diet. I first did a candida cleanse and it lead into eating a paleo diet after :) I posted some links below on more information on what the candida cleanse is:

Mini Sweet Bell Peppers Stuffed With Crab Dip

When I saw these mini sweet bell peppers I instantly had the idea of making a crab dip. We used to make a hot crab dip and put it into a big bread bowl, but thats is no longer on the menu plan, this is much more delicious anyways ! :)

.:: From Costa Rica To Canada Time Keeps Going By ::.

Wow, it has been far too long since I last updated Passionate Paleo! The last month has been extremely hectic , moving twice , 3 weddings , and now getting ready to go back to Costa Rica! I spent the last 3 weeks with my family which was fantastic :) When I left Costa Rica I didn't think I would be going back so soon, but I absolutely loved it! I am so fortunate to be able to go back and stay with a friend, who knows maybe I'll move there one day ;) I plan on doing lots of updating in mid to late september once I am back at school. Lots of new recipes to invent and try!

For those of you who don't know I also have a face book page which I update frequently with recipes , nutrition tips and tricks, and lots of other awesome health related articles. If you would like to check it out here is a link!


Until next time ~ have a great rest of summer! Ciao~
