What I Ate Wednesday: Real food again

After days of being sick, my stomach is FINALLY coming back to normal!!! I am also trying to get away from carbs. When I am sick, the things I find appetizing are zup, ice cream, and bread. This bug was bad news, I even lost my appetite completely. And that is NOT like me haha

Paleo Cookie Dough

My older brother celebrated his 31st birthday this past week with the whole family. We had LOTS of food, and of course cake and ice cream. I decided to pass, and headed home looking for something sweet. I googled, looked on pinterest, and I found some great recipes (see below) but I decided on cookie dough
