Today I’m celebrating Plaid and Paleo’s 3rd Anniversary! I can’t believe it was 3 years ago that I pushed publish on my very first blog post. While I cringe at some of my old photos, I love seeing how far my little blog has come! Plaid and Paleo is such a huge part of my life. It keeps me accountable to eat healthy, but it also makes it fun! Blogging helps me try new recipes and foods that I would never typically try. Creating new recipes also brings me so much joy. When I get a comment or Instagram share saying how much you love a recipe, I get so excited! I have so many screenshots on my phone of your creations of my recipes or kind comments. These are the things that keep me going when I feel overwhelmed juggling a full time job plus Plaid and Paleo. This past year saw a lot of growth for Plaid and Paleo. I published my first e-cookbook, Paleo for One! I still can’t believe I actually did it. I passed 10K Instagram followers. I think my biggest accomplishment is posting a new recipe every week! Thank you all so much for supporting my blog!!
To celebrate Plaid and Paleo’s 3rd Anniversary, I created these delicious Hibiscus Kiwi Popsicles. Ever since making my Coconut Hibiscus Margaritas, I have been loving hibiscus tea. I love the contrast between the bright green kiwi and vibrate purple hibiscus tea that comes together to create these Hibiscus Kiwi Popsicles. For me summer and popsicles pretty much go hand in hand, but eating popsicles in Arizona is a messy ordeal when temperatures are scorching 100+ everyday. I woke up at 6AM to snap these pictures before the heat turned up. Thankfully these Hibiscus Kiwi Popsicles are gorgeous on their own and I got the pictures without these tasty popsicles melting into puddles!
