30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking has meal plans, shopping lists, and all of the recipes for a month of paleo cooking and eating. But my absolute favorite part is 2 pages near the back. Read to see why!


We’re getting down to the last pounds of our 1/4 grass-fed beef we bought last year, and all the bits with most obvious uses have been used. So now I have to be a bit more creative. So when I pulled out these short ribs to thaw (and wanted to try something new), I googled

Greek Stuffed Zucchini Boat Recipe

I am SUCH a fan of Zucchinis, I get so excited whenever our plants start producing. And the grocery-store ones never seem to measure up to our garden ones… just such creamy delicious flesh, thin tender peel (with no gross waxy stuff rubbed on it). So when we had four ripe zucchinis at once, I

Primal Braised Beef Short Rib Recipe

One problem I tend to have with a lot of meat recipes is the sauce… so often recipes call for bottled sauces loaded with sugar, or soup packets mixed with ketchup and coke (not even kidding), or various other gross-sounding concoctions.

Husband Brisket and CSA Goodies

I’ll make the Mexican rice! Recipe swap? I’ll bring pasta salad! Cookout? I’ll bring macaroni and (velveeta, fake) cheese with

I made this salad for lunch one day from leftover steak. It was pretty nice! Top some butterhead lettuce with carrot ribbons (just use a vegetable peeler on the whole carrot to cut it into thin strips). Add rasins, and toss with a honey mustard vinaigrette dressing. Plate and top with slices of cold leftover

Spaghetti Spaghetti Squash

I posted a lighter, more salad-like spaghetti squash recipe earlier, but if you need something with protein and heft, this is another way to eat that versatile veggie. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Cut your spaghetti squash in half, and de-seed it. Place cut-sides-down in a baking dish and bake for 40 minutes.
