Paleo Fudge Pops

Chris joined a cross-fit gym several months ago.  Cross-fit is a professional, challenging and evidence-based work-out program that is designed to push users to the limit through encouragement and teamwork.  Chris really likes the competitive atmosphere of cross-fit, and his body is now fitter and healthier than its ever been.  In my humble opinion, he is the most handsome man on the planet! Once life with Evie, Mack and Vivian settles down a bit, I hope to join, too.

When Chris started cross-fit he also adopted the paleo diet. With only occasional exceptions, he refrains from all sugar, beans, grains and dairy. His diet consists largely of fresh vegetables, some meat and plenty of fruit.  A typical daily menu for him includes an omlette for breakfast, a big salad for lunch and a steak with sweet potatoes and veggies for dinner.  Snacks might be an apple or a handful of nuts.

Since joining cross-fit and starting paleo, Chris’ outlook on food and life have drastically improved.  He’s lost weight, gained energy and has a better appreciation for health and nutrition.  I prepare most of the meals for our family, and the kids and I are now on a mostly paleo diet due to his influence.  Its been a lot of fun coming up with new ways to enjoy familiar foods.

I really enjoy spending time in the kitchen with the kids.  On a rainy afternoon, nothing beats baking with Evie by my side.  But, now that Chris abstains from flour and sugar, I like making special treats that work for him.  These fudge pops are the perfect summer treat. My paleo husband loves this dessert, and so do the kids!!
