Vanessa Barajas is the dessertavore behind the blog "Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind." She is a San Diego Native who loves food passionately. She's been known to drink almond milk straight from the carton and expensive wine out of plastic cups. Vanessa started the Paleo diet as part of a 30-day challenge in 2012 and never looked back. Once hailed as the "Paleo Dessert Queen," Vanessa makes it her personal mission to create the best treats possible using nutrient-dense ingredients and never sacrificing on taste. Her favorite meal is, has, and always will be dessert.
