Osso buco is a relatively gourmet-style meal that is actually a whole lot simpler to prepare than you might initially think. Originating in Milan, it takes a couple of hours to cook, but as far as making the actual osso buco, it’s nice and easy as this recipe will show you. You’ll be making your own bouquet garni with rosemary, thyme, and a bay leaf. The rest of the recipe is classic osso buco, using the veal shanks cooked in a simmering sauce of olive oil, onion, garlic, carrots, celery, tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth. The end result is a mouthwateringly osso buco that’s high in protein and loaded with flavors. Read more

What is the Paleo Diet?
There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the Paleo diet. Some write it off as a fad while others think it entails eating only meat. The Paleo diet attempts to bring our modern day eating habits back to Paleolithic times, when mankind was hunting and gathering rather than grocery shopping. It gets rid of foods that are byproducts of agriculture and industrialization, like wheat, legumes, refined sugar, and dairy. It focuses on meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. These foods put the body in a healthy state that could be the key to helping with modern diseases that come from an unhealthy lifestyle, like obesity, digestive problems, and more.
5 Good Reasons to Switch to a Paleo Diet
With so many diet plans being pitched to you on a daily basis, what makes Paleo the right choice? Here are the five best reasons to make the switch to a healthier you with Paleo:
Reason #1: Effortless Weight Loss
The approved Paleo foods work for you rather than against you, so your body is never fighting against what it just ate. Instead you’ll have increased energy levels, better sleep, and weight loss as a natural byproduct of an improved lifestyle.
Reason #2: It Can Help with Health Conditions
Once your body is back in alignment with the foods it was naturally designed to eat amazing things start to happen. Blood sugar stabilizes, blood pressure lowers, bad cholesterol goes down, good cholesterol goes up, stress levels decrease, mood improves, and on and on!
Reason #3: It’s Not Confusing
You won’t be faced with the challenge of keeping track of a point system, counting calories, counting carbs, or forced to buy brand name pre-packaged diet foods to succeed. There’s not a guru that has the secret under lock and key. It’s a simple way of eating clean and healthy.
Reason #4: It Will Always Be There for You
If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting and jumping from one trend to the next when a diet stops working, give Paleo a try. Try it for a month and you’ll likely stick with it once you see and feel the results. It’s a way of eating that will be the same ten years from now as it is today.
Reason #5: Tastiest “Diet Food” on the Planet
Maybe that’s why so many who try the Paleo diet stick with it and make it into a lifestyle. Once you master the right substitutes there’s few dishes that are off limits. You’ll find hundreds of delicious recipes you can start making today and you’ll never look back!

Pies make for excellent desserts, but that’s not all they’re good for. Savory meat and vegetable pies are a dinner staple in some parts of the world. However, paleo guidelines usually mean that pies are off-limits. That’s a thing of the past however, as there are now plenty of paleo-approved crust recipes around. This creamy chicken and mushroom pie recipe passes with flying colors with the use of sweet potatoes as the main ingredient in the crust. It’s not just the paleo-friendly pie crust that makes this meal so good though; it’s loaded with healthy vegetables and chicken that’s been coated in a deliciously creamy mushroom sauce. Read more
One of the most common complaints that people have regarding salads is that quite often, they just don’t measure up when it comes to protein content. Sure, there are things like chicken caesar salads and other similar salads with an added protein content, but all too often lunchtime salads feature only a combination of veggies along with some dressing. While this is still quite a healthy meal option, it’s certainly lacking a little bit in the protein department. That’s where this protein-packed cobb salad recipe comes into the picture. Not only does it include chicken breast, but it also adds eggs and bacon for even more added protein. It also includes a delightfully tangy homemade dressing to really round out the whole thing.

Chicken satay skewers are a staple in Southeast Asian cuisine because they are so easy to make but are incredibly tasty. The secret lies in the unique marinades used as well as the blend of spices that really bring out the flavor in the chicken. If done properly, each bite should have you coming back for more. Usually, the chicken is marinated for a few hours but our paleo skewers recipe requires even less than 30 minutes to prepare and cook. This recipe also contains a lot of protein, so it can be served alone, but it is usually paired with side dishes such as sweet potatoes or cauliflower rice. Read more
