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.

A small amount of honey
Included foods that are considered paleo-controversial
