Real Food Finds you need to know about.
Hey friends! Today we’re sharing some of our favorite food finds for the month of May. In a recent survey we sent out to our newsletter list, we asked what NEW content you wanted to see on our blog. 70% of you wanted to see our favorite “Real Food Finds”. Foods that are healthy, wholesome, delicious and convenient. Each month we’ll be sharing a handful of our favorite dietitian-approved real food finds. These could be brand new products on the market, products we recently discovered, some of our everyday go-to’s, beauty products, cleaning products and favorite restaurants. Really…whatever we feel like sharing with you for that month!
This past weekend we attended Paleof(x) in Austin, Texas. We had such a great time connecting with brands we love, discovering & trying new products, hanging out with our friends from the Whole30 HQ Team (so much fun!), and enjoying some really freakin’ delicious food. Austin doesn’t mess around when it comes to their restaurant scene! Some of our favorite restaurants included Salty Sow, Odd Duck, Grizzeldas, Lamberts and Lick Ice Cream (best ice cream ever).
This month we’re sharing with you some of our favorite food finds that we discovered at Paleofx. So many to choose from but we limited ourselves to 12 Real Food Finds for May 2017. They are listed in no particular order.Dietitian-approved 'Real Food Finds' from @paleoFX. 8 of the 12 are @whole30 compliant. Click To Tweet
