    Hello again, Robin! I made these muffins today and they are SOOOOO YUMMY! For those that said the mix made more than 6 muffins, make sure you’re using the 6 cup (large muffins) pan. I wasn’t able to find the large paper baking cups so I just used a little coconut oil to grease the pan and they came out perfect. Thanks for yet another delicious recipe!

    Hi Robin! Thank you for this challenge. I am on day 12 and loving it (I lost 8.6 pounds by day 8)! I actually feel full after the meals which is great for a woman like me with a huge appetite!! Although I am feeling healthy, light, and my digestion system is working great, I have been extremely exhausted. My body can’t seem to get enough sleep. Is that normal?? Thanks

      WOW !!!!! that is amazing congrats on the weight loss. As for the being tired … yes this happens. Your body is detoxing, losing weight, changing. all of these things are going to make you very tired. I will say that is called a 30 day CHALLENGE because it is hard. I can also tell you that it has become a lifestyle for so many and it will really change not only your body but your mind. You won’t be tired soon. Just give it time. Please keep in touch along the way. Love Robin

    Hi! Can you use flaxseed in place of the almond flour? Is it paleo? I was also wondering if we could eat grapes? They help curve my sweet tooth. I am not a fan of dark chocolate. I am on day 14!!

    Hey Robin! I am on day 12 and really loving it!! Question regarding the muffins: is this intended to make 6 muffins (the recipe says 6 cup muffin tin) or 12 muffins? Also, an unrelated question, do you have an archive of workout videos that you use on an ongoing basis? I want to make sure that I remain interested and keep up with the workouts after the 30 days is over! Thank you!

    Hi Robin, I made these tonight and I didnt have almond flour…I used a gluten free flour. At any rate they were dry and not very tasty. I had a cookie dough like batter. Does the almond flour make it moist and airy? and does it add the “sweet” taste to it? My husband I are on day 8. We are doing great. We both lost 6 pounds in our first week. Everything is very good… except for my muffin mishap. Please let me know. Thanks.
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      01/14/2014    
      Hi thank you for writing me. The reason they came out dry is because you did not use almond flour. Almond flour has moisture in it and is way different than just using gluten free flour. Also Gluten free flour is not a good choice for you anyway. It is filled with all types of other products that your body can not break down. You are doing great and I am so proud of you for sticking with this. It means a lot to me that you are trying so hard to make this work. Keep it up. Please keep in touch as well.

    Hi Robin! I’m so obsessed with your blog, I can’t even tell you. It’s changed my whole outlook on what it means to eat healthy all the time! And the water thing? GENIUS. I’ve been experimenting with a lot of paleo recipes for the past few months, but just started this challenge this past week. Is it okay if I swap out a couple recipes here and there with the paleo dinners that I know? Or is it more beneficial to stick to the recipes here? Also, I have a recipe for paleo chocolate chip cookies that involves using cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. Could I insert those into this challenge instead of eating snacks, or is that WAY too much cheating? :) Thanks again! You are great and an inspiration to us all!
    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      01/19/2014    
      Thank you so much. I am so proud that you make the choice to eat healthy. Your words of encouragement are so sweet. You can for sure switch out any recipes that are on the blog that say paleo for the ones in the challenge. No unfortunately you can’t switch out chocolate chip cookies even with the cacao nips for snacking. I would try to eat more veggies. Stay strong and keep with it. Let me know if you have any other questions. <3 Robin

    Use ground flaxseed as a substitute for eggs. I have done it before and cannot even tell the difference. 3tbsp water to 1 tbsp ground flaxseed= 1 egg. Mix till gel like consistency and add to recipe. Just make sure you use ground.

I try every day to answer everyone’s questions. I put the muffins in a container and keep them on the counter. Weird trick I do is place a paper towel over them so that they don’t get all mushy. Keep in touch and ask as many questions as you would like. I’m always here. Talk to you soon.

    Epic fail!! I tried the coconut flour as well (haven’t found any almond flour yet), and I used a little more of the other ingredients and added some almond milk after reading the previous comments and the coconut flour being more dry. Looked more like cookie dough than batter (added more almond milk)…never got to a batter consistency but I baked it anyways…still very dry and didn’t taste very good. I MUST find some almond flour so I can make this right!!

I follow most of your recipes except dinner sometimes because im a nurse and some days I just dont feel like cooking so I make cauliflower rice n eat that with my meat and another veggie. I was a ice cream addict and plan on trying coconut milk ice cream after these 30 days. I just want to say thanks again for turning me on to paleo its more expensive but I feel like its worth it.

    • Robin's Gravatar Robin
      09/24/2013    
      Well here is a tiny secret. Coconut flour is way more dry then almond flour so you have to use a bit less plus I would suggest using more blueberries to add even more moister. I hope this helps you out. One more thing is that coconut flour cooks a bit faster as well so you will have to watch them.

    A couple of questions for you. Are you making your own almond flour or buying it. If buying it where are you getting it. Also saw Potato starch in another recipe, where are you getting that? I’m trying to convince my husband to do this challenge with me. Just want to have everything figured out before hand. Thanks for your awesome site.

      Connie, thank you so much for joining in on this challenge and thank you for reaching out to me. OK as for getting the hubs to join in I think that would be the best idea ever. (let him know I said that lol) It really is great to have someone do this with you. Now for the other questions I get my almond flour from the store. I just look for 100% organic and the same with the other things. I have not started making my own almond flour yet but I do make my own almond milk now. Ok please let me know what other questions you may have and tell the hubs I said he should join in !!!

        Hi, My daughters found this on pinterest and they loved it so much they made me join them. The thing is that they were on day 9 when I joined and according to my daughter I should follow the recipes in the exact order they are posted. I also worked most of the day and sometimes I cant cook, so I have cooked vegetables, fish, chicken soup (with zucchini,, celery, yuca root and carrots) and use the slow cooker, is this ok? One last question: to my knowledge beans are an amazing food, nutritious and extremely beneficial in many ways, why aren’t they part of the paleo diet? Thank you for this recipes, all the ones I had try are easy and delicious. I eat pretty healthy so I am amaze of the versatility of the meals. I never tried spaghetti squash before and I love it!

          Hi!!!! I am so glad you joined in on this amazing 30 day challenge. You do not need to eat the recipes that I posted in the order I posted. I actually encourage people to check out all the new paleo foods I have posted on my blog. They are not on the 30 day challenge but can be a great substitute for any of the meals. As for beans your body does not break them down. I will have to say that they are not the best source of nutrition. So many of our foods in the US have been genetically modified so much that our bodies can not break them down like they use to. I am glad that you are loving the meals. Please keep asking questions. Talk to you soon xoxoxoxo
