I am currently attending university and taking my bachelor of Interior Design and loving it! I live a paleo life style and I am passionate about food, health and nutrition. I created this blog in hopes to inspire and inform people who are interested in starting a Paleo life style. Even for those who do not eat / live this way there are some amazing recipes and educating links based on health and wellness. I believe that health is very important and should be a focus is everyones life.

    Not sure what I did wrong with the icing but I couldn’t get the maple syrup and honey to combine with the coconut oil and coconut mana. Otherwise delicious!
