Why I Love Canada ~ Happy Canada Day!

  Canada is celebrating its 150th Birthday on Saturday, July 1.

Gluten-Free Paleo Carrot Cake

  From my family to yours! I would like to share my mom’s amazing carrot cake recipe for the holiday season.

You may be shocked by the 7 teaspoons used in the recipe, but if you divide the cake into 14 pieces, each serving has 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. This amount of cinnamon, if taken on a daily basis, has been shown to reduce glucose, triglyceride...
