chicken fingers 3

Happy New Year! My New Years resolution this year is to watch less TV and get more work done. Starting next month I will be starting my education to become a Nutritional Therapy Consultant! I could not be more excited! Ever since paleo changed my life, I have become so passionate about it. I really wanted to make a career out of it and educate people on the importance of eating real food, so I looked into programs that would teach me more about nutrition. I originally had found a program to become a Certified Dietary Manager. When I had completed the program, I realized it wasn’t for me because it goes against everything that paleo is. I did an internship in a hospital, and the food that was being given to sick people really horrified me. While I was still enrolled in the CDM program, I read Eat The Yolks by Liz Wolfe and noticed her credentials were NTP. I looked up NTP and read all the information about the program and immediately knew this was the right program for me. This is the nutrition education that I had been looking for. I can’t wait to do this and start educating other people on the benefits of real food.

So now that the holidays are over I’ve been cleaning up my diet, and I know many of you are as well. This paleo chicken fingers recipe is low carb and perfect for anyone doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox and similar low carb protocols. I served mine with store bought organic honey mustard, but these will go great with any dip you would like!
