You are not on a paleo diet? That’s okay because these recipes are just plain delicious eating, and since paleo is low sugar, no processed food, and avoids many of the things your doctor says to skip (trans fats, artificial sugars, and other foods generally not so great for you), it combines great flavors with healthy eating.

It’s a win-win. If you like to hear, “Yum, it’s good!” work your way through the recipes on this list.
