I couldn’t wait to open up my bag of raw cacao powder from Freedom Super Foods. Inside the bag was this beautiful fine, silky smooth chocolate powder. Yum… It smelled heavenly!

Organic Raw Cacao Powder


I had to taste it right out of the bag. I didn’t know what to expect since it was unsweetened and raw cacao powder. It wasn’t bad. It had a nice dark chocolaty rich flavor.

I thought to myself “I need to make some brownies!”

When you order your bag of raw cacao powder you will also get an e-book with some recipes in it. There is a brownie recipe included but it has gluten in it. I needed a Paleo recipe for brownies, so I researched online and tested a few recipes and came up with my own super moist and chocolaty Paleo gluten-free brownie recipe. I hope you love these brownies as much as I do. I really love the flavor the raw cacao powder gives the brownies plus I feel good about all the nutrients, flavonoids and antioxidants that are  in the cacao powder.

Gotta Chop Paleo Almond Butter Cups Recipe

If you are like me, you love a yummy chocolaty treat every once in awhile, and boy do I love almond butter cups! They are so creamy and chocolaty and just melt in your mouth.  Before I went Paleo I used to be addicted to peanut butter cups. They were definitely a weakness of mine. I couldn’t stop until I ate almost the whole bag. I paid for that with skyrocketing blood sugar soars up into the 400’s mg/dl. I would feel so sick and be so sleepy I would be in bed the rest of the day trying to recover. High blood sugar is so hard on our bodies, read more here

Well, I finally found a solution– My Gotta Chop Paleo Almond Butter Cups!.  Eating a Paleo diet has definitely saved my life, and probably my FEET.  Being diabetic, nerve damage and poor blood circulation from high blood sugar is one of the reasons so many diabetics loose their feet and legs.  I don’t want to be one of those people, so I decided to take control of my life again and start eating a clean healthy diet.

The reason that I made almond butter cups instead of peanut butter cups is because peanuts are not a Paleo friendly food.  Peanuts are not nuts, but they are legumes and they contain phytic acid, lectin, and aflatoxins. Also, so many people have peanut allergies and problems with digesting them.

The Gotta Chop Paleo Almond Butter Cups Recipe contains organic and more healthy ingredients than those over-processed store bought candies with all their needless chemicals and they taste great too.

Guacamole Pico de Gallo Recipe


It is Tuesday afternoon and I need a little pick me up.  I am feeling a bit snacky, so I search the kitchen for something to make.  I found an avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeño, and some organic blue corn chips, so I thought why don’t I make a little guacamole pico de gallo…yum!

Guacamole Pico de Gallo recipe —

I chopped up my onion, tomato, avocado, and a little jalapeño and added them to a bowl.  I added some sea salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, a dash of cayenne pepper, and a little drizzle of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and gently mixed everything together.

I grabbed my bowl of guacamole pico de gallo and my chips and a good book and headed outside to find a nice shady spot to sit and read and enjoy my yummy snack I just whipped up.  What a beautiful day it is outside, and it just got better with my healthy little snack.  Hope you enjoy your day too, and try some guacamole pico de gallo too, you will be glad you did.
