Paleo Candy Bars

Way before processed foods, when humans lived in caves, our ancestors ate foods that had to be hunted, gathered or caught, as in fish.

Many people are still on their New Year’s Diets or lifestyle changes that include a healthier way of eating. With our current exposure to sugar and fast foods, it is hard to eat healthy while on a budget and constantly on the “go.”

Apparently, there is a Paleo candybar! Some say this is a fabulous frozen treat and it really hits the spot when you are craving something sweet.

Paleo, sometimes called The Caveman Diet, is a style of eating that some experts say promotes optimum health as it copies the way our Paleolithic ancestors ate.

Way before processed foods, when humans lived in caves, our ancestors ate foods that had to be hunted, gathered or caught, as in fish.

As the Forever Fit Challenge kicks-off this week in Fernandina Beach, I thought it would be great to post an option for those of us who have a sweet tooth!

    We made these yesterday. I think they are very good (and I have been off sweets for 6 weeks or so). Steve thought they needed some vanilla in them. They are easy to make and fast too. After the concoction was frozen and we cut it into “bars”, I put them in a ziploc in the refrigerator.
