Full Recipe List

The central concept of paleo is returning to an unprocessed, non-agricultural diet, one that depends less on the pantry staples we take for granted—flour, pasta, soy sauce, cornstarch, wine, vegetable oil, rice, potatoes, and commercial broths to name a few—and more on less-processed foods that are free from sugars, stabilizers, and other unwanted additives.

The recipes in this book are, for the most part, just common-sense healthy—the type of foods that sensible healthy folks would want to cook for their family and friends.
