Here at The Tasteful Pantry, we love Halloween, maybe because it’s so easy to act like kids again, or maybe it’s because there seems to be an abundance of sweets everywhere! The only downside is that so many of the sweets or highly processed and contain all sorts of unsavory ingredients. This year, why not prepare your own homemade Halloween treats to satisfy your and your family’s sweet tooth (teeth?) and save yourselves from overdosing on the junky candy being pedaled by well-intentioned neighbors and friends? We found this fun, gluten and grain-free recipe for chocolate spiderweb cupcakes with chocolate peanut butter fudge frosting from Texanerin that we think you and the kids will love! They’re made with natural, healthy ingredients with no sugar and are full of protein so you and the kids can avoid the sugar crash and feel energized for your Trick-or-Treating adventures. So have some fun and indulge without the guilt this Halloween!

Whether you follow a Paleo diet due to medical issues or personal preference, we all have that one food we miss. You know, the one you may have thrown a temper tantrum about when you realized it’s on your “do not eat” list. We totally understand.
One of the most readily available foods on the planet and staple in the American diet turns out to be the biggest no-no for paleo eaters: bread. Sandwiches, French toast, stuffing…you get where we’re going with this. Although we love the taste, we know the havoc it wreaks on our digestive system (and further) so we willingly choose not to eat it. It’s not always easy!
But we’ve got some good news for you! Danielle Walker of Against All Grain has cracked the code and created a moist, crusty and versatile Paleo bread. Yes, I said bread! It’s gluten-free, grain free, dairy-free and yeast free. Does it get any better than that?
