Butter Coffee and Beyond: 2016 Focus

In 2015, I posted my resolutions/goals/whatever you want to call them. It’s not a popular post by any means, but I’m fond of it. I found myself re-reading the post every few months throughout 2015 to reflect on where I’m at and if those goals were still part of my path. So even though I’m terribly late this year, I’d like to continue on with my 2016 focus – the goals and thoughts I have about this new year.

Obviously this year started fantastically for me. I kept joking with friends that my New Year’s Resolution would be “Be More Married”, and I already achieved that (I got married on January 1st) so I was done for the year. Cross that off my list and get back to my life! Yeah, I wish.

My Top 3 Paleo Protein Bars

It’s high time I share some of my favorite things with you, starting with my 3 favorite paleo protein bars!

I don’t cook all the time. *gasp*

I know. What a confession, right? There are numerous times throughout the week that I’m busier than I thought I would be and just don’t have any food prepared. Or, equally likely, nothing in the fridge looks good but I still want to grab a bite before or after CrossFit.

So I take a look into my little snack basket (a wicker basket in my pantry where I throw all the grab-and-go stuff) and *Da-na-na-NAAA* snatch up a paleo protein bar. Yum!

We’re pretty fortunate to be surrounded by small businesses that embrace the real food movement and appreciate the paleo template. There are a myriad of options for go-to paleo snacking and protein bars, and after trying a good chunk of them I’ve found my favorites. I truly enjoy trying new food and products whenever I can get my hands on them, but these 3 bars are the ones I know I can always fall back on.

Butter Coffee and Beyond – ALL The Exciting News

Hello, friends! I have so much news, it’s simply too much for a text. I insist that we get together for coffee. Butter coffee, to be more specific.

So grab a cup and fix it how you like it. I’ll be having mine with a pinch of cacao and maca – my preferred blend of the moment. Let’s sit down and chat.

I’m sure you can tell how absolutely excited I am, so maybe you ask what’s new with me. I inevitably start rambling.

Butter Coffee and Beyond: My #NutButterInAvo Obsession

Hey, you! Glad you’re here. Sit down. Let’s take some time to unwind. I’ll whip up a butter coffee for you and we can chat!

I’m introducing something brand new to the blog! Butter Coffee and Beyond! It’s really the first ongoing series here at Do You Even Paleo.

Doesn’t the graphic for it look awesome? I’m super excited to make this a thing. What will Butter Coffee and Beyond be? Well, the posts will be more lifestyle-centric. Not as much focus on recipes, but it might feature my favorite snacks, CrossFit stories, paleo/gluten free products, the stuff I’m doing to stay happy and healthy beyond food.

I would also like Butter Coffee and Beyond to create more of a conversation between you and me. I named the series Butter Coffee and Beyond because I think the best conversations happen over coffee (or, if you don’t do caffeine…tea, hot chocolate, kombucha, whatever). When you’re sharing a delicious beverage with someone, you each tend to open up and grow closer. I hope I’m at least somewhat able to replicate that cozy, personal atmosphere of a small local coffee shop.
