You can call it paleo, but around our house, we call it dino-chow.

I don't (generally) consume grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, caffeine, or alcohol, so almost all of my dino-chow recipes are squeaky clean and paleo/Whole30/primal-approved. My standards are high, and I only post recipes that I've personally tested. My goal is to give you tasty food you can eat EVERY DAY, so you won't find a lot of recipes for "paleo treats." But meat, veg, and yummy, yummy (YUMMY!) fats? I've got you covered. Dig in!

I promise, you’ll never miss the wrapper. This recipe is part of March Meatball Madness; get all the recipes right here.

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice

I recently hosted a dinner party for 12 people and wanted to serve cauliflower rice. But the idea of figuring out how to sauté, like, three heads of cauliflower — without the “rice” getting mushy — and how to have it all ready to serve at the same time was overwhelming. I wondered if there was an easier way. There is: oven roasting! Say hello to Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice. The... read more

MMM: Basic Meatballs

Today’s recipe is courtesy of Elana Amsterdam of Elana’s Pantry. I think March Meatball Madness is proving that with the addition of spices, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fruit, ground beef is open to imaginative combinations. But sometimes a classic is just what you need. Elana’s given us a simple, pure rendition of meatball magic. This recipe is part of March Meatball Madness; get all... read more

MMM: Making “Meat Dough”

Have you caught the frenzy of March Meatball Madness? (And are you enjoying the equally delicious celebration of Fug Madness? I love Fug Madness!) In this post, I’m going to share the three methods I use to blend what I affectionately call “meat dough,” a.k.a., meat mixed with seasonings that’s then turned into luscious balls of goodness. You can make meat dough with a food... read more

MMM: Italian Slow Cooker Meatballs

Today’s recipe is courtesy of Stephanie Gaudreau at Stupid Easy Paleo. She’s disguised the superfood power of liver in flavorful Italian meatballs in a slow cooker recipe, which means you can score the winning basket without even being in the kitchen… or something like that.

Persian Roast Leg of Lamb

We ate a lot of leg of lamb when I was growing up, and whether it was roasted or turned into kebabs, my dad was always in charge of cooking it. I decided recently that it was time for me to tackle a roast leg of lamb myself. Naturally, I bought my leg of lamb from Lava Lake and turned to Cook’s Illustrated for guidance. The recipe below is based on one I learned in Cook’s Illustrated The Best... read more

Happy Paleo Pi(e) Day!

This is a re-run of a post from last year. I liked it so much, I’m sharing it again. HAPPY PI(E) DAY! It’s March 14… or 3/14… or 3.14… a.k.a., Pi Day, a.k.a, an excuse to eat pie. But we’re not eating any pie. Oh, no! We’re eating paleo-approved, protein-packed pie. Or should I say π? Here are three recipes that will cure your craving for pie and won’t... read more

MMM: Bakso (Indonesian Beef Balls)

Paleo Ranch Dressing

Today is National Ranch Dressing Day — which probably means nothing to anyone outside the United States and Canada. While ranch dressing has been numero uno in the U.S. since about 1992 — surpassing Italian as our favorite way to disguise raw vegetables — it’s pretty much unknown throughout the rest of the world. International friends, say hello to ranch! The iconic dressing — creamy, tangy,... read more
