Garden Maintenance and Salad Dressings

Mid-Season Sprucing Up The Paleo Diet’s 2017 organic vegetable garden is growing and thriving, which means a little tidying up is in order to ensure that all of the plants are happy and healthy.  Our veggies are spreading out and filling in every space available with their stems, leaves, and flowers.  Along with this comes the crowding out of others, so we have trimmed and thinned to keep everything flourishing with plenty of space to grow.  Our cucumbers plants have gotten much too large for our garden trough and we made the decision to transplant them into large pots that

Keep It Paleo – Condiment Recipes

We all love the great taste of freshly prepared foods that are the basics of The Paleo Diet.  Once you’re in the habit of eating a variety of foods, it’s easy to live the Paleo lifestyle.  A common dilemma, when planning and serving delicious meals, is how to include common condiments that contain healthy ingredients.  A trip down the catsup and mustard aisle at any grocery store quickly demonstrates the challenges for those of us committed to The Paleo Diet.  It’s almost impossible to find an ingredients label that doesn’t include some sort of sugar, salt, or fillers as primary
