I’m thrilled to have the lovely Emma and Carla of The Merry Maker Sisters guest blogging here today! They are sharing a fab recipe for Paleo White Christmas, which would have been posted last week if I was better at blogging and running a business at the same time. Clearly, I am not! But this recipe is still a stellar one, and a great way to continue to indulge in holiday treats without completely falling off the Paleo wagon. And I bet it would be a welcome additional to your New Year’s Eve bash!
We’re Emma and Carla Papas from Australia, aka ‘The Merrymaker Sisters’ and we are super excited to be featured on Zenbelly! We pretty much spent the last hour drooling over Simone’s amazing recipes!
We call ourselves health and happiness bloggers! We found that following a paleo lifestyle and studying to be Health Coaches literally brought us back to life. Our merrymaking journey continues to teach us new and exciting ways to make our days brighter, happier and healthier.
We created the Merrymaker brand to share our experience with a goal to inspire you to take care of yourself because good health and happiness is infectious. On our blog you’ll find an abundance of easy and delish paleo recipes plus we share ‘happiness hacks’ – all our Merrymaker tips to help you find and follow your bliss!
Since Christmas is just around the corner here’s our Paleo White Christmas Recipe.
