Paleo Gingerbread Recipe + More French Christmas Recipes
Marie is the face behind a French Paleo website called Influence Paleo. She does an amazing job of spreading Paleo movement and Paleo nutrition to the French community.
The French is well known for their excellent cuisine, so I was really excited when Marie agreed to share some of her French creations just in time for Christmas. Below is the gingerbread recipe, but there are also links to other ones (like her spicy orange clementine salad and marzipan recipe). Check them out!
