Sweet Cherry Almond Chia Pudding

It seems there's a story behind every recipe - for instance, last week's Paleo Power Breakfast developed out of a need for a power breakfast (go figure)! A friend and I were going snowshoeing in Glacier National Park and we were debating what to make for breakfast - it had to be sustaining but not the kind of 'power breakfast' ...

Paleo Power Breakfast

This breakfast has quickly become a new go-to in our house! It's the kind of meal that fills you up just right to power through your day, yet it doesn't bog you down by making you overly full!

Simple Resolutions for the New Year
