Ever since they opened a Barry's Bootcamp here in Chicago, the fitness community has been obsessed. It reminds me of when SoulCycle opened up in Old Town and people peered through the glass anxiously on a daily basis trying to figure out when it was going to open so they could be among the first to cash in on blood, sweat and tears. OK, so maybe I'm talking about me. Either way, Barry's has taken 99.5% Chicago by storm (they're even opening up a second location) but somehow I was part of the .5% that hadn't poured myself into a class right away.
Paleo baking from scratch can be a bit tricky. Finding pre-made paleo-friendly baking mixes isn't near as easy as it is if you follow a Standard American Diet or even just a solid Gluten Free diet. Sure, there are plenty of paleo friendly flours you can cook with, such as almond and coconut, but it is definitely not as easy. Speaking from experience, these flours can be a bit finicky to work with so I'm always greatful when others take time to find the best combinations for their recipes.
These caramelized onion meatballs are the perfect appetizer for a dinner party. Or you can serve them as your protein with breakfast in the morning. They're also great for a date night dinner.

One of my resolutions in 2017 was to devote more time to having healthy relationships - with myself, my boyfriend, my body, my family, my friends, etc. I've realized that having some me time is a big part of this, so I've been trying to do more of that. I've also been trying to have date night a bit more frequently with Kyle. Combine this with the fact we are trying really, really hard to stay on budget this year so we can spend more on travel and getting a king size bed (hollaaaa!) and it can get a bit tricky.
