A New Life
Through grace, time, and experience, it is my hope that healthy living will lead you not only to better physical health, but also to better mental health. For me, once I got the hang of living this way, my marriage grew, my friendships improved, and my soul felt more at peace. Through change, I became a whole person instead of living in a shell of sadness. Change can be hard, and it can take many days of starting over and making mistakes before you get it right. Hey, that’s okay. It’s worth it to start over and you are worth fighting for. Do it for your family, but better yet, do it for you.
What is Clean Paleo?
Contains NO grains, legumes, dairy, wheat, soy, gluten, or artificial ingredients. Only all-natural sweeteners such as raw honey, coconut sugar, real maple syrup, monk fruit, stevia extract, and erythritol. This way of eating is ideal for everyday life. Feel free to incorporate baked goods and treats on occasion.
SQUEAKY CLEAN PALEO
Same as Traditional Paleo but without sweeteners, artificial or natural, apart from dates. Think of eating as cleanly as possible, excluding all desserts and treats. Use this as a guideline to establish better eating habits.
Same as Traditional Paleo, except fewer carbs—there are no starchy veggies such as sweet potatoes. Compliant sweeteners include monk fruit, stevia extract, and erythritol.
FOODS TO AVOID ON THE PALEO DIET
Sugar and high-fructose corn syrup
Highly processed foods
Buffalo Chicken Patties with Southwest Ranch
This recipe is in honor of my husband, Joel, who is constantly begging for a buffalo recipe that is unique, healthy, and delicious. These slightly spicy patties will please any guy, woman, or kid in the house.
Thai Chicken Coleslaw with Almond Sauce
A spin on both the traditional creamy coleslaw and an Asian-style salad, this Thai Chicken Coleslaw gets doused in a luscious Paleo almond sauce and topped with cashews and scallions. This is the perfect salad for an outdoor BBQ or picnic.
Roasted Cabbage Steaks with Garlic Aioli and Bacon
These roasted cabbage steaks are a garlic lover’s dream. Drizzled with fresh garlic aioli and crumbled crispy bacon, they’re a great accompaniment to steak—but they’re hearty enough on their own.
Grilled Pork Chops with Peach Vinaigrette
Pork chops don’t have to be boring. These peach-inspired pork chops are both savory and sweet. To make this meal complete, serve with Cauliflower Mash (page 96) and green beans.
Philly Not-So-Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
These stuffed peppers are a spin on the traditional Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. They’re filled with thinly sliced steak, mushrooms, and peppers and get a big dollop of Mac’s Awesome Sauce. They’re so good, you won’t even miss the bread.
Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Wraps with Ranch Coleslaw
Chicken can get so boring sometimes. That’s when these Hawaiian wraps topped with grilled pineapple and ranch-drenched coleslaw swoop in to save the day.
Taco Tuesday has never looked so good! Give your traditional tacos a facelift with this easy soup that is perfect for any time of the year. Want to really impress your family with leftovers? Reinvent this soup into another meal during the week by throwing a cup of it in a baked sweet potato. Pretty genius, huh?
Banana Cream Pie Pops
Growing up, banana cream pie was my favorite dessert. This ice-pop recipe plays on that, and it’s perfect for all you banana lovers out there. Ice pops are a great way to tame a sweet tooth in a healthy and cool way.
