Pinspiration - Paleo Food

I could talk till I'm blue in the face about this Paleo diet boyfriend and I are doing.  This is the first time in my life I've ever "dieted" and what a lifestyle change.
What do you mean I can't eat blue doritos and Annie's Mac and Cheese?
After my epic Pancake Meltdown, I've made it a mission to find food I like and enjoy so I don't feel like I'm depriving myself of what I love: Food.  I'm realizing that I can do this and still be healthy, I just have to get creative.
Enter: Pinterest
Half of the Paleo recipes I've tried (and LOVED) so far have come from Pinterest.  It's my motivation and inspiration to eat yummy things and be creative.
Below are some of the new ideas I've found and plan on trying!
Pumpkin Pucks

Almond Butter Pumpkin Brownies
These are very similar to a recipe that my aunt gave me!

Almond Chicken Bake

Portobello Mushroom Pizzas
Paleo Meatballs
These are all gluten free options too if anyone has Celiac's disease or a gluten allergy. 
If anyone has any recipes they've tried or found, please share! 


  1. ohhh i wanna try those brownies! i love almond butter :) good for you guys!

  2. OMG the meatballs! I need to try! lol...that's awesome about your diet, I have a feeling I would be horrible haha.

  3. I want to try all of this

  4. This post sparked my interest and caused me to google "what is the Paleo diet"? I eat clean but couldn't give up brown rice and some occassional cheeses. Great Blog!

  5. Those portobello mushrooms look so good! I'm going to have to make those asap.

    And I've been wanting to try the Paleo diet, but my husband and I just watched Forks Over Knives the other day and it's just really taken me aback. I don't know what to believe!
