Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding with Pure7 Chocolate

Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding + Pure7 Chocolate Amazingness

I’m going to be totally up front. I actually really hate the term “Chunky Monkey”. I don’t understand at all why the terms “chunky” and “monkey” apply to food…it doesn’t sound appealing at all. But, to be fair, it is an easily recognizable way to describe a food that has banana and peanut butter and possibly chocolate. And can you imagine how long the title of this post would be if I had to type all that out? So, this delicious breakfast/snack/treat is Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding.

Chipotle Chorizo Burgers with Maple Balsamic Sauce

Okay, everyone, you asked for it and you’ll get it. But before we get to the Chipotle Chorizo Burgers, I’ve got something else I want to chat about.

I’ve been giddy over the number of people who have signed up for my newsletter, Paleo Bytes. If you don’t know the story, here’s the quick rundown:  I gave my readers the option of signing up for email subscriptions, but I wasn’t planning on sending one out. I told myself that if I gained a certain number of subscribers, I would commit to sending out a newsletter.

A few months later, I checked my numbers, and what do you know – my “goal” (that I wasn’t actively shooting for) was exceeded by 33%. Hot damn! Obviously I needed to think up a newsletter! See, I don’t want to just bombard your email every time I post a new recipe. I never read those emails; they just get deleted. So, for my newsletter I wanted to send out fresh content that won’t be posted here, on the blog. To me, there’s got to be an incentive for opening up that email and reading it.

Well, apparently people like that idea. I’ve only sent out one newsletter…but my second will have 68% more readers!

Brussels Sprout and Kale Salad

Chopped Brussels Sprout & Kale Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

I’ll get this out of the way immediately: I’m not a salad person.

When I do eat salad, I have a very high expectation for how awesome it is. The main ingredient can’t be lettuce. At that point, maybe it’s not a salad anymore, but there’s something about straight lettuce that is super unpalatable to me. So unpalatable that not even loads of dressing can save it. A salad has to have variety, bulk, and fun flavors playing with each other on my tongue (because that’s a wonderful thought).

Halvah Cookies

Halvah (Tahini) Cookies

Hello everyone! I’ve got a very tasty treat for you today that happens to be a spin on a beloved childhood treat of mine!

Before that, I wanted to quickly mention my new newsletter, Paleo Bytes. I recently sent out the first newsletter and got a great response! I am sending out a monthly-ish newsletter (you will not get emails every time I post – that’s boring) that features fresh content and awesome times. You can sign up on the right sidebar!

You may not recognize the word “halvah”, but don’t let that turn you away. These cookies are incredibly simple to make – only 4 ingredients! If you like tahini (sesame seed paste), you’ll definitely enjoy these slightly sweet cookies.

Eggroll in a Bowl

Eggroll in a Bowl – Guest Post on The Freckled Foodie

I’m so excited about this post you guys!

First off, I made this really awesome recipe, Eggroll in a Bowl. It’s all the goodness of an eggroll without dealing with the wrapper. Instead, it’s the delicious pork-and-veggie filling, seasoned to flavor perfection.

And secondly, the recipe is actually a guest post over at The Freckled Foodie.

Finally, I want to talk a bit about local and online communities!
