Paleo Cherry Recipe Wrap-Up (Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free)

Vacation. That might be my new favourite word. At least right now. You want to know why? Because that's where I am right now. On vacation. It. Is. Glorious.
After months of hearing me talk of nothing on the blog other than my internal medicine exams I am finally able to focus on other things. Passing those exams was a huge relief. I was pretty sick of talking about them, and I am sure you were very sick of hearing about them!

So what am I doing with my vacation? Lots! Reading (lots of reading), playing tennis, bike riding, cooking, visiting the local Farmer's Markets, running, laying by the pool and soaking up as much natural vitamin D as I can, and most importantly, NOT studying!

I am actually visiting my parents place on Lake Kalamalka in British Columbia, and if you have never been here I highly suggest you make the trip. The weather is always perfect, the lake is one of the prettiest I have ever seen and there is amazing fresh produce everywhere. Basically it's my version of heaven.

I mentioned that I have been doing a lot of reading. And I mean a lot of reading. It is no secret that I love to read. My ideal vacation involves me, a beach, and a good book. I could sit on the beach and read for days. I just never get bored. Anyone else with me? And I have read some really great books so far on this holiday including:

Eat the Yolks by Liz Wolfe
My Secret Sister by Jenny Lee Smith and Helen Edwards
Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
An Invisible Thread by Laura Schrod 
All The Lights We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr 

Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Have you read any other good books lately? I am always looking for reading suggestions so please let me know!

In other, food related news, it is officially cherry season! Are you excited? If not you should be! I have never met anyone who doesn't like cherries. You just never hear people say "cherries are so gross." Nope I am pretty sure those words have never been spoken. They are just so delicious! And since I am in the Okanagan there are fresh cherries everywhere. Like everywhere! It also means I have access to unlimited, free, cherries from my neighbour's tree. Pretty great right? Not that I am trying to make you jealous or anything...

And in honour of my love for cherries I have put together a Paleo Cherry Recipe Wrap-up for you. In here you will find ice creams, muffins, pies, cakes, meat dishes... the list goes on and on. There are 30 recipes in total for you to choose from so I am sure you will find something in here to make. I am already planning out which dishes I want to try first! It's so hard to choose!

And before you get to the recipes, as always I would be thrilled if you visited my social media pages on Instagram, FacebookPinterest and  Twitter
