6 Easy Steps to a Stress Free Paleo New Years Eve

Planning for New Years has never been one of my strengths. After spending all the money, effort and time on surviving Christmas I always find myself facing the night of December 31st disinterest and ambiguity. I don’t particularly have the cash on hand to purchase a sparkly dress and tickets for a snazzy night out on the town so half the time I either end up sitting at my mother’s house watching a ball drop or with one friend and a bottle of wine.

The Expo is the premier gluten and allergen free event in the US. Whether you are looking for specialty products that taste great or trying to learn how to cook and bake to meet your dietary needs, the Expo is the place to be!

I’m going to come clean here and admit something that I am not very proud of.  Over the past month or so I have produced an overwhelming amount of non-paleo, non-glutenfree, full sugar, overly creamfilled, milk chocolate loving desserts.  Real talk.  I fell off the paleo baking wagon and I fell hard.  I made the unfortunate decision of looking past my well loved coconut nectar flour and falling into the contraband arms of plain ol granulated sugar delights.

Happy Eggnog Month! Errr... November. :)

If you love eggnog but are now eating paleo or even just dairy-free, this eggnog is for you! It is stupid simple to make and only requires 4 ingredients! Eggs, coconut sugar, almond milk and nutmeg. 5 if you want the adult version ;)
