I’m now back home in Dallas after a 2 week stint in the UK. Hitchin, England to be exact. You may be thinking, “I’ve never heard of Hitchin. Why would you spend 2 weeks there?”

Well, I had never heard of Hitchin either until a few months ago, and while this was a relaxing trip, it was not for vacation.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

nutrition Mar 01, 2016

I love ice cream. It’s probably my favorite dessert. However, after removing lactose and most dairy from my diet several years ago, and then incorporating a paleo lifestyle, ice cream no longer had a home in our freezer.
