Nutrition
is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Chewy, Chocolaty Brownies

evolution rMy weakness forever has been chewy, yummy, rich, chocolate brownies. In the past, these were very unhealthy and definitely not Paleo. Then I found a recipe that I tweaked to make it my favorite brownie recipe – even better than the non-Paleo types. So, if you love brownies as I did and still do, then you must try this recipe. Remember, this is an indulgence – not meant to be eaten everyday. (One square equals about 22 grams of carbs.)
 
PALEO CHEWY, CHOCOLATY BROWNIES
 
Ingredients:
 
1 cup raw honey
3/4 cup organic cocoa powder
1 cup almond butter
1 free-range egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chocolate extract
1 tsp espresso extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
 
Preparation:
 
• Heat honey gently over stove until warm; do not boil. (If you want a sweeter brownie, you could add an additional 1/4 cup of honey. If you want less sweetness, reduce the recipe to 3/4 cup raw honey.)
 
• Stir in cocoa powder over low heat until smooth. Cocoa burns easily, so keep the heat on very low.
 
• Remove from heat and stir in almond butter.
 
• In separate bowl: mix egg, vanilla, chocolate and espresso extracts, and baking powder; then add to honey/cocoa/almond-butter mixture.
 
• Stir batter until well mixed.
 
• Sprinkle batter with salt, and fold batter to incorporate salt.
 
• Pour into parchment-paper-lined 8×8 baking pan, or grease the pan with coconut oil.
 
• Bake brownies at 325F for 35-45 minutes.
 
• Insert a toothpick in the center of brownie to determine if done.
 
• Let cool completely before cutting.
 
• Cut into 2-inch squares (total 16 pieces).
 
• Store extras in freezer and thaw when ready for another.
