OK, so when the challenge is given me, I love to go away and get onto it. Never mind I was literally flying out the next day. Never mind I had a million and one things to do. Never mind I am not paleo. I am partial to a bit of Chrissy fruit cake now and then though.

So paleo, regret nothing. Enjoy Christmassing with less guilt. You're welcome!
