Paleo Recipe | Coconut Cranberry Drop Cookies

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of the paleo diet. And if you haven’t, it’s a great diet that you can fairly easily introduce into your life. Trust me on this one, I’m not the best at sticking to diets.

I started on this diet during my first pregnancy after wanting to eat healthier for my child and myself. I must say I am so happy I did!

For those of you that don’t know, a paleo diet consists of high protein and low to no intake of carbohydrates, sugars, and processed oils. So, in more simpler terms, you just need to cut out breads, chips, sugars, and the unhealthy oils such as vegetable oil. By no means does this mean the end of enjoyment of food for you! You realistically can find healthier paleo alternatives to replace those items with.

Also, if you’re a busy mom like myself, or anyone for that matter who is pressed for time, I highly recommend doing your grocery shopping online at Publix. They use Instacart that does the grocery shopping for you and then delivers your groceries right to your door! This has saved me so much time and headache I would get from doing my shopping in store with two toddlers.
