5 Ingredient, 5 Minute: Primal Fudge

As I have mentioned previously, my husband and I recently completed the Whole30 challenge.  Basically we went for 30 days eating only whole, unprocessed foods.  No sugar, no dairy, no grains, no legumes, no alcohol (gasp!) In other words: 30 days of torture. That said, we had amazing results in our health and our waistlines,… Continue reading 5 Ingredient, 5 Minute: Primal Fudge
