Raspberry Orange Muffins {Paleo}

 raspberry orange muffins 2

Lately, I have been doing lots of studying on heeling auto-immune diseases. I’m a total food nerd and love researching and reading others who have healed themselves with diet. I’ve only heard a little bit about the Gaps Diet and the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and it sparked my interest. See my hubby has an auto-immune disease and I have food allergies which I think is dairy, but honestly could be something else. The idea that you can possibly heal these conditions by food is amazing to me. So I have been trying to convince my hubby and make small changes to transition over to the diets. We’ve been limiting gluten, adding in bone broths, adding in more healthy fats (coconut oil and grass fed butter), and increasing grass fed meat intake. My hope is that we can heal our guts and then possibly reintroduce some of foods we enjoy (cheese is my hubby’s kryptonite).

I’m not a huge baker, but my hubby said he wanted snacks that would be easy for him to take on the road (he pretty much lives in his car for work). I modified this recipe from Power Hungry and it turned out absolutely delicious! You would never guess that it is dairy free and grain free!! Light, sweet, and buttery! These will definitely hit the spot.

    Hi! I found you somehow on Pinterest…I can’t remember how and I don’t care. I have been going through your website and am especially interested in the homemade makeup. I’m going to make some homemade foundation! I don’t wear much, but it will be interesting to try it out. One day I might have enough guts to try the mascara! I saw this post and am intrigued. I have MS (one of the autoimmune diseases) and I think I have a dairy sensitivity. I always have, like, a major buildup of snot and mucus and I am beginning to think it’s from what I eat…I am definitely going to look into both the gaps and the autoimmune protocol. Thanks! Oh and these muffins look pretty good. Trying to go natural seems so overwhelming. I’m going to start buying one or two things (like the coconut oil or almond flour) every shopping trip until I have a nice little cabinet of gluten free items!
