GF Lime Cookies – no grain, gluten, refined sugar, dairy, soy, or guilt!

I actually made these GF Lime cookies – no grain either, btw, for you paleo fans!, for St. Patricks Day, but we were overflowing with posts, so I thought I’d wait. Besides, with the yummy touch of lime, they’re refreshing and light, and a perfect yummy treat for a warm summer day.

These are super simple AND a cool little bonus is they also have no starch–whoohoo!  So for all of our GAPS diet fans, these are going to be a special little treat for you too!  The only exception will be the frosting, but you can bulk it up with more cashews instead of the arrowroot powder. These GF Lime Cookies – no grain, etc., etc. actually don’t even need the frosting, but it adds a nice extra touch if you decide to add it.

AND–with many of you working on filling your new Pantries with staples, so we have something very wonderful to share….IF you need a great place to get great quality organic ingredients, AND you’re wanting the very BEST PRICES on them, we highly recommend that you check out this new ORGANIC MARKET, their prices are a steal, in fact they are better than anywhere else we’ve seen, amazon included, and we know these items are all fresh!

      Hi Kelly,
      We don’t post the nutrition facts, mainly because that hasn’t been our focus. Our feeling is that you could eat a salad that equals 1200 calories, or a burger & fries with the same calorie content, but the 2 really don’t compare in the ways they will affect the body.
      For example, take fats–we love healthy fats, and avoid all bad fats, so measuring total fat content is like comparing apples to oranges.
      We basically feel that the end effect of what we prepare isn’t the same as the end effect of unhealthy treats, and comparing them with the same meter, doesn’t really work.
      Before we started our transition, we used to watch nutrition facts religiously, but now believe the best gauge is to just eliminate toxins and then to count nutrients, adding them at every turn.
      We recommend eating our desserts as you did the old unhealthy ones, don’t go crazy, but just enjoy as a little bonus. Hope that helps! xo

        Thank you so much for your reply , that is kind of what I figured I have always watched what I eat and your right you can’t compare apples to oranges makes a lot of sense! I looked forward to trying more of your recipes and being able to indulge enjoy not count calories and know that I’m feeding my body the best:) Thank You Kelly!
