Our first recipe takes minimalist to the extreme! As we’ve learned from Ashley Tudor, author of Sweet Potato Power, sweet potatoes are an amazing food. Sadly, it’s usually buried in sugar and overly processed ingredients during the holidays to make the notorious and family favorite: sweet potato pie. But sweet potatoes are already delicious enough that this is all unneeded! Which is why we bring you the following from Life As A Dreger.Here’s another popular holiday pie with a healthy centerpiece – if handled right. Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen has a plethora of baked treats . . . without the baking part! Enjoy the benefits of raw food and awesome taste with this pecan pie.Eggnog is already mostly paleo, but it’s hard to know exactly what’s in something unless you make it yourself. If you’re trying to live like a caveman, utilize this recipe to make sure you do it right! Credit to CrossFit Zone.
