Dare I tempt you with a couple of Paleoish yet non-whole 30 recipes to get back into a little more relaxed eating?  Maggie passed a great chocolate chip cookie recipe to me that I just whipped up and it is super easy.  Yes, chocolate chip cookies are on my "Worth It" list because they make me happy, so I thought it would be best to find a recipe that is somewhat paleo and makes a relatively small batch so I am not tempted to scarf down large quantities.

GAPS Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 ¾ almond flour
  • ¼ cup vanilla honey or (¼ honey + 1 tsp vanilla)
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips 
  • ¼ cup clarified butter or coconut oil (softened)
  • ¼ tsp unrefined sea salt 
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  3. Mix all ingredients together in one bowl (except chocolate chips).
  4. Add in chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop out 1 tablespoon cookie dough with a spoon (I use a measuring spoon) and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Keep 3 inches of space between each cookie. Press down slightly to flatten the cookie.
  6. Bake for 6-10 minutes. The cookie should just be a little golden brown on the bottom. Do not over cook!
  7. Cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet (or else they will be too soft to pick up). These cookies should stay soft when cool.
  8. Eat with a smile! Yum 

Another great recipe that was passed along by Karen is a Spaghetti Squash Lasagna.  This one has cheese, but spaghetti squash takes the place of the pasta.  If dairy is what you plan to reintroduce first this sounds like an excellent choice.
