We’ve done a round-up of recipes on our site that fall into the paleo category. Host a party with paleo recipes and no one will know the wiser, and you can stick to your diet.

Recipes are considered paleo when they are focused on meat, fish, vegetables, nuts, and fruit. Steer away from dairy, grains, legumes, and sugar. We checked through our recipes from other parties, and have made a list of links…some just need minor substitutions. Read on…
