Paleo goodies for Christmas

I love December. It’s my favourite month of the year. We have Christmas and New Year is just round the corner. Work slows down. Everyone becomes more relaxed. It is also a time for pigging out on cakes, cookies and sweets galore.

I’ll be away for most of Christmas this year in Taiwan hiking in Taroko Gorge (yay!) but I have one or two parties to attend. What better way to introduce people to your fantastic paleo diet then baking some yummy goodies for them?

This year, I’m planning to bake at least one of these paleo goodies. Click on the title for the link to the recipes!

I bought paleo rosemary bread from Nature’s Bakes

Did I mention that I love bread? Because I love bread, I’ve been baking on my own using paleo baking ingredients. I’ve had some successes (banana muffins and “pizza” turned out well) but had experienced many more failures. It’s not easy. Every measurement must be precise and the slightest change in the recipe can cause problems.

I decided to go to the experts and order a loaf of Rosemary bread from Nature’s Bakes. Not only is Pauline an excellent baker, she also coaches at Crossfit Singapore.

We met up for the first time today at an MRT station. I felt like I was on a blind date. “I’m wearing a sleeveless grey top,” I messaged her, “I’m sitting on the left hand side.”

The reason why I was meeting her was to buy a loaf of rosemary bread. The base of this bread was coconut and almond flour. There was no sugar or honey or fruits. Pauline warned me that it might be a bit plain so it was best to eat it with butter. Personally, I prefer my bread without sugar or fruits so then I can add whatever toppings I want.

The bread was given to me wrapped in plastic.
