Paleo Chicken Fingers

These paleo chicken fingers are just like the ones you remember as a child, just gluten-free, grain-free and not shaped like little dinosaurs.

Not only are they incredibly...

Tips and Tricks for Dealing with Airplane Anxiety

There’s one thing that can send most people with and without anxiety into a panic, it’s airplane anxiety. The thought of being cooped up in a tiny little space with complete strangers for hours can seem overwhelming. Even more so, you can feel like your putting your safety, even your life, in the hands of complete strangers. No problem right? I used to have nightmares about even stepping foot on an airplane.
