Holiday Sweet Exchange!! I'm rollin up the sleeves .....

Posted By: Aiko Iwashita · 12/4/2013 3:00:00 PM

I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary at Stoney Creek Crossfit and still loving every sweaty minute of it!! 

The Crossfit lifestyle promotes eating a paleo diet, which consists mainly of fish, meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit,  and nuts and  excludes things like grains, legumes,dairy, white potatoes and refined sugar.   However, I do not follow a strict paleo diet but try my best to eat clean daily, which can be extremly hard this time of year.  This is why I am super stoked about this paleo recipe.  My friend made these last week and they are amaze-balls AND healthy!!  I have a cookie/sweet exchange coming up and I will be making these!
