I'm going to say right off bat that I'm completely okay with white potatoes... As long as that glucose is being used in the body and not just being packed away into fat cells. That being said, there are times when I do not need the extra simple sugars from white potatoes and green plantains would be more beneficial for me.
Most people think I'm completely and aggressively against the consumption of gluten. You may have gotten that from my past posts on the Truth About Gluten and Gluten On The Gut (if you haven't read these already, I highly recommend you do so...). And yes, while I'm not a huge fan of the consumption of gluten, I completely understand that it's not for everyone and am fully aware of how a gluten-free diet effects each individual.
So today, I wanted to share with you some PROS and CONS of going on a gluten-free diet.
Have you ever had a craving for one of the worst desserts you could imagine? Yeah, I'm right there with you. I'm a huge sucker for some creamy ice cream...

Or one that satisfies your cravings. So I'm here to share with you today a simple paleo vanilla ice cream recipe that will not only satisfy your ice cream cravings, but will also give you some added nutrients! Can't beat that, now can you?
