Co-owner of Yummy Spoonfuls Camila Alves McConaughey is in the kitchen today making chicken sweet potato dippers with homemade dip. Before getting started, flavor the ground chicken with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. She also uses coconut flour for this recipe because it is gluten-free and high in fiber. The best part is that you can take these dippers on the go. The dipping sauce is easy to make with just a handful of ingredients.

8G Blueberry Muffins
Cookbook author and founder of 8Greens, Dawn Russell is making honey blueberry muffins using her 8G tablets, which have equivalent nutrients of a full serving of vegetables. Because this is a paleo recipe, she warns that the muffins can come out dry, so she likes to add more blueberries to the top of the muffins when they are in the tin, making them more moist. She also adds manuka honey to the muffins for more sweetness and health benefits.
