Paleo/Primal Recipe Index

Paleo? Primal? How are these different from other recipes?

There is a long answer to this question, and a short answer to this question. Here’s the short of it: the recipes linked on this page are free of grains, legumes, and refined sugar. Some of the recipes here contain dairy, which you can easily substitute for if you avoid it. If you’re curious about the Paleo lifestyle and diet, I strongly recommend hearing from an expert. I’ve listed a few resources after the recipes.
