Paleo Recipes that Don't Suck

Paleo Recipes That Don't Suck

Whether you are into the Paleo Diet or not, paleo recipes are your friend!

Don't believe us?

They're worth checking out because they're not difficult to prepare and the ingredients you can use on this particular diet are abundant and whole. In other words, we're not talking about tons of processed and/or sugary and/or starchy foods. Instead, we're talking about animal protein, veggies, healthy fats, and certain fruits; in short, real foods whose names you can pronounce.

For a strict paleo interpretation, you won't, however, be eating refined sugars, carbohydrates, or dairy. And definitely no legumes—no beans, lentils, or tofu. This might sound difficult or restrictive, but cooking paleo recipes add a ton of whole, real foods to your diet and also gives you a chance to observe how your body feels. If you love it, in time, you might transition to a paleo-inspired diet or create your own modified paleo template, once you learn which foods make you feel the best. In other words, you might be ok with a little bit of dairy, but black beans are a no-no. Everyone's body is different!

But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

The foods for a Paleo template are loaded with healthy carbs, fruits & vegetables, protein, and healthy fats, but there is no sacrificing the flavor! Whether you are new and paleo curious or a long-time follower, we recommend staring here. These are some of our 15 favorite Paleo Recipes That Don't Suck. We promise!

And, if you're brand new to the Paleo diet, be sure to check out this resource page.

  1. Thank you for sharing these recipes. I have type 2 diabetes and just met with a new endocrinologist who told me to do the paleo diet. However, I cannot use anything with fruit, potatoes, and rice. I hade much trepidation that I would not be able to follow his instruction, but with some of these recipes, I think I could be successful.

    1. Thank you for the feedback Anne. It's great to hear that you're on the right track! You got this!!
