Paleo Lifestyle

**Paleo recipe index is at the bottom of this page**

As part of our 2013 New Year Resolutions, my boyfriend (Jon) and I decided to commit 100% to a Paleo lifestyle during the month of January.

Some of you may be wondering, “What the heck is Paleo?!”  Let me give you a really brief summary (or check out the infographic for the slightly longer version):

In a nut shell, The Paleo Solution promotes eating like our ancestors, or cavemen used to.  This includes lean grass-fed proteins, fresh wild-caught seafood, colorful fruits and veggies.  Sounds like common sense, right?  Well, Paleo doesn’t allow you to eat any grains, dairy, beans, or unnatural sugars.  That’s right, not even whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt, or dark red kidney beans!

Tip:  This brief intro to Paleo does NOT do the diet/lifestyle justice.  Check out Robb Wolf’s website for a much more indepth review or just read The Paleo Solution!

Throughout our challenge I shared Paleo-friendly recipes that we tried and enjoyed.  Although our January challenge is over (and we did it!), Jon and I are still trying to live a mostly-Paleo lifestyle so I’ll continue to share Paleo-friendly recipes.  While all of these recipes are included in my regular recipe index, I thought it would be nice to be able to see all of the Paleo recipes in one place exclusive of non-Paleo recipes.  So here you go:
