5 Easy Paleo Recipes

5 Paleo Recipes for beginners


The Paleo diet is a high protein diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans. It focuses primarily on meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, and excludes processed food, dairy and grains. The diet favors natural, grass-fed red meat, wild-caught fish and shellfish, and monounsaturated fats from nuts, avocados, olive oil and coconuts.
 

The best way to get started is to focus on fresh, unprocessed foods prepared in your own kitchen.  It's easy to control what you eat when you're the one making it. Challenge yourself to try new vegetables, flavors and spices.
