What is Paleo? In a nutshell, the Paleo diet is based on the notion that for optimal health, modern humans should go back to eating real, whole unprocessed foods that are more healthful than harmful to our bodies.  I have eaten a mostly paleo version diet for over fifteen years and can attest based on my own personal experience to the effects it has on your mind and body.

Each recipe listed below includes a link to the full recipe and a complete shopping list that includes the ingredients for all the recipes can be found at the end of this post.
