  • The Paleo diet is inspired by some of our earliest ancestors’ eating habits. In the Paleolithic era, the diet of these hunter-gatherers consisted mostly of animal proteins and all the vegetables they could pick. They also enjoyed fresh fruit, nuts, and berries, and the occasional egg swiped fresh from the nest. But they did not cultivate grains, beans, or peanuts, let alone later agricultural developments like potatoes and corn.

    If you eat Paleo, keep your meat portions lean and make sure you get enough fiber via vegetables, fruits, and nuts. People on the Paleo diet report many benefits, including increased energy, healthier skin, and reduced intestinal distress. There isn’t a lot of scientific study to support going Paleo, but just about everything on the “yes” list is good for you.

    While you wouldn’t think it, making meatloaf Paleo is pretty easy — just take out any grains like breadcrumbs, oats, or rice.

And just like your mom’s meatloaf, it tastes even better the next day. Enjoy with a fresh salad to boost fiber.

  • The paleo diet is meant to mimic that of our Paleolithic ancestors, who lived over 10,000 years ago. That means no grains, and no dairy, among other things. Suffice it to say that it’s not particularly breakfast food-friendly. However, with a few paleo-friendly substitutions, a stack of pancakes is back on the menu. This basic recipe is delicious on its own, but you can also add to it. Throw in a half-cup of banana, pumpkin, blueberries, or sweet potatoes for a seasonal flavor boost. Or substitute maple syrup for honey if the spirit moves you. A nonstick skillet is essential for easy flipping. Top with fresh fruit or a touch of maple syrup. Explore Recipe »
