So, I started this whole "clean eating" thing back in February 2011, after being really intrigued about a plan called the Whole30 . I decided to give it a go, but quickly realized that I needed to make it more adaptable to the way that our family eats and lives. I like my glass of wine at night. I don't think a piece of gum is going to sabotage me. I think that a DQ Blizzard is a good thing every once in a while. If my friend makes the most awesome jalapeno poppers you've ever had, you know I'm going to have one. But I also know that I feel pretty darn good when I'm eating quality proteins, fats, veggies, fruits and nuts, while leaving out dairy, grains, legumes (including soy and peanuts) and the big one, sugar, at least most of the time.
Here are some of the ways to do just that....

No Kidding Paleo "Tortillas"

Here is another recipe that is not my own, but one that is simple and works well.  These tortillas really stand up well and you can roll them up and freeze them for later use (if you don't eat them all at once).  They're about 1 carb block each if you're doing the Zone (more on that later....).  My husband has been asking for them often since I started making them.


Makes about a dozen 8" tortillas

8 eggs
4 tsp melted coconut oil
4 TBS water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup arrowroot powder
4 tsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt

Crack eggs into large bowl and whisk in melted coconut oil and water.  Add dry ingredients and whisk well.  Heat a nonstick 8 inch crepe pan over medium heat and pour in about 1/4 cup of the mixture and swirl to coat pan.  Let cook 1 minutes per side. If using later, cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
