These 15 Paleo Friendly Recipes are delicious, simple and essential for your meal rotation, even if you’re not familiar with what “Paleo” is.
I’d wager many of you have heard the term “Paleo” hundreds of times over the past few years, and nodded or smiled along as if you knew exactly what it meant, when in fact you had no idea. For a while, I was the same way. However, once I discovered what the Paleo way of eating was all about, I realized that I’d basically been eating Paleo all the time.
I’m simplifying greatly for brevity here, but following a Paleo diet is essentially eating the way that cavemen ate (Paleo being short for Paleolithic). The basic premise being: if they didn’t (or couldn’t) eat it then, neither should you now. So what exactly were our early hunter-gatherer ancestors eating? As you might guess, meats, nuts, fish, leafy greens, seeds, healthy fats and vegetables were all on the menu. What does that mean however for those who love and/or consume grains, processed oils, dairy products, legumes, sugar and your beloved coffee? Well, you’re probably out of luck. However, if the Paleo way of eating seems appealing to you, the sunshine here is that without realizing it, you’re probably eating tons of Paleo friendly recipes already.
These 15 Paleo Friendly Recipes are fantastic for Paleo devotees of all ages, but they’ll be enjoyed no matter how you choose to eat (if you need more Paleo ideas for vegetarians, explore the site as the ones here are just the tip of the iceberg).
