Oat So Simple

Sheesh, another day another reaction! This time it seems I’m allergic to my husband! Well ok, not quite, but he is the cause of a flare up,of itchy, red eyes and major snotage! Nice! He had to climb in the back of his trailer today and got covered in oat dust. So here I am in October with, basically, hayfever! Yay!

In other news…. today has been super productive on the ice cream making front, and I’m actually looking forward to another weekend of creating flavours and yummy things for the ebook. 

I am ever so pleased with this jazzy little driftwood chalkboard shelf I whipped up from some things I had lying around the house.

I have been over come with creative urges today, so much so that DD2 had to reign me in from creating a full blown ice cream parlour in the hallway, complete with seaview and sand. Hmm, just as well I have people to temper my giddiness at times I guess. It is my dream to own a little beach side ice cream shack, so perhaps I’ll just have to direct my creativeness into making that dream a reality. First things first though, the book needs finishing first.

Oh, if you fancy joinng in over on our facebook page, I’ve been asking what your favourite icecream flavour is, and giving you the chance to receive a free copy of the book when it comes out. Hop on over and join in, and feel free to invite any friends who might be interested! You can find us at facebook.com/creativelypaleo

In yet more exciting news…. I’m going to be a Desire Map Book Club Leader in January! If you don’t know about the desiremap have a wander on over to Danielle’s website and be prepared to be enthralled!

A Gingerbread Family

This week has been another hectic one in the Creatively Paleo family. I’m not entirely sure where the time is going to, but it seems almost incomprehensible that we are already in September!

Of course we don’t have the back to school rush that most families have, and for that I am eternally grateful! The idea of shopping for school shoes gives me the shudders! You may have seen the post about Primal Education a couple of weeks ago, well that is part of a lovely Not Back To School Carnival over at LiveOtherwise. Grab a brew and take some time meandering through all the posts, there are some really lovely stories included, and they might give you some interesting food for thought 🙂

I’ve been working hard on a couple of projects, the first of which I have just launched and am really quite pleased with. It was a proper family collaboration with the children all contributing ideas as well as helping with various technical aspects that my brain had a temporary block with! It’s a free guide to primalizing your family – it takes a gentle and respectful approach, because, in my opinion at least, there is no space for anything else when it comes to such a huge and important change in a child’s diet.

For the guide we’ve been testing out a paleoified gingerbread recipe, and after much tweaking we are really pleased with the result, and have included it as a cute little printable in the guide. We really hope you like it and have fun baking with your children!

Here’s a little graphic that I whipped up in the A Beautiful Mess app (I do so love that app!). If you click on it it will take you to the download cart thingy majiggy!

We’ve been back to meal planning again this last couple of weeks, which definitely makes life much easier. There should  be some new recipes coming up on the site this week too, including a one pot chilli which was a real life saver in the campervan, and a tasty pork recipe with a Polynesian influence!

That’s it for now – don’t forget it’s #PaleoHour between 8 and 9 pm GMT tonight on twitter!
