Paleo-ish

The main points of paleo-ish recipes

All recipes adhere to the ‘spirit’ of the paleo guidelines.  If you cannot pull it out of the ground, pick it from a tree or kill it yourself, then it probably shouldn’t be on your plate. 

Live as our ancestors would have lived but cut a few small corners to make life easier, simpler and faster in the kitchen.

The minor inclusions will make no difference to someone of good digestive health; still, those with sensitivity issues should be wary of the ingredients before making any recipe.
