Chocolate Cherry Grain-Free Granola – Guest Post from A Nourished Appetite

I’m super excited to have my good friend Natalie of A Nourished Appetite share a recipe with you guys today. She makes THE BEST food. Seriously! If you guys like my recipes, just wait til you try hers. Since moving back to southern California, I’ve actually gotten to hang out with Natalie in person a few times which of course means eating lots of yummy food together. And I’ve had the amazing pleasure of trying this delicious Chocolate Cherry Grain-Free Granola. She gave me a jar of it a while back and I ate it all way quicker than I’d like to admit. But once you try this I’m sure you won’t blame me. I’ll turn it over to Natalie now…

Dark Chocolate Strawberry Kefir Parfait with Coconut Cookie Crumble and Why I started Eating Dairy Again

Why I include grass fed, full fat dairy in my real food diet and a delicious recipe for a Dark Chocolate Strawberry Kefir Parfait with Coconut Cookie Crumble | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #paleo #primal #glutenfree

“You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, “Let’s get some parfait,” they say, “Hell no, I don’t like no parfait.”? Parfaits are delicious!” Name that movie….. I cannot hear the word parfait without thinking of the movie Shrek and being transported straight back to my childhood. I used to watch that movie all the time. I could probably still quote it to this day. It’s the best. Continue reading
