What is the Paleo diet

Ingredients That Sound Scary But Aren’t

When reading food labels, it can be tempting to assume that any words in the ingredients list that have long, unpronounceable, or unfamiliar names must be bad for us (and definitely aren’t Paleo). But, this isn’t always the case! While some scary-sounding ingredients are worth watching out for (such as hidden sources of gluten, soy, corn and sugar), others are completely benign, and there’s no reason to go out of our way to avoid them. Here’s a Read more

Easy Lunch Idea: Paleo Cabbage Wraps

This is more of an idea than an actual recipe, but it kind of changed my life when I discovered it. Paleo lunches can be a challenge, because I think most people think of sandwiches and wraps as the easiest and most delicious things to eat in the middle of the day--I know I do. Having leftovers from the night before is convenient, but sometimes it's kind of boring. I'm a big fan of lettuce wraps and make them all the time, but recently I realized Read more

How to Bounce Back After Falling Off the Paleo Bandwagon

Let’s face it, eating Paleo has a few strict rules when it comes to what the dieter should avoid. We know that eating the modern Western diet is unhealthy and there’s science to back that up,1,2 but we also live in the modern world which makes avoiding the western diet tough at times. As a Paleo-eater, you know you can lose track when you start falling for too many non-Paleo temptations. Whatever your reason was for falling off the Paleo Read more

Five Years Paleo – 10 Lessons Learned

Image img_1584.jpg

2015 really flew by, huh? I had quite a crazy ride over this past year: I released an eBook, a New York Times-bestselling cookbook, a smartphone/tablet app, embarked on a 12-week book tour, and welcomed our second son into the world. At the same time, this little website reached over 2.5 million readers, and a Yahoo news article about my health journey went viral. More so than in previous years, I’ve caught myself reflecting on that Read more

Hot Chocolate Fallen Souffles

These are an old favorite that we’ve adapted to perfection over the years. This version is exactly the right amount of dark chocolate flavor to tempt anyone!

Reminiscent of hot chocolate, these mini-cakes will become a new favorite! They may look special, but trust us: they are really Read more

I bought some Red Chard at the farmers market that was so good I wanted to keep it raw, so I made a salad with it. Prepared it like a classic spinach salad. Red onion, olives, walnuts, spices, lemon juice, and added some fried slices of grass-fed beef sticks (a free gift from UncuredNaturalMeats.com with my last order), plus the warm olive oil I cooked them in, as the base for my dressing. All paleo, all organic. Really yummy! SOURCE: Cooking Read more
