Paleo Meatloaf with Tomato Glaze

This meatloaf is simple to make and easy to customize with your favorite seasonings. What makes it stand apart from most recipes, however, is that instead of baked in a loaf pan, the meat is simply formed into a loaf by hand and baked on a baking sheet. This allows to fat to drain away from the meat, which avoids the sogginess you sometimes get with a loaf pan. … Continue reading

Chipotle Burgers with Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Summertime brings a lot of fun in the sun, but it also means cookout season has arrived once again.

How to Buy and Store Local Bulk Meat

We all want "good" meat. Grass-fed cows are much closer to what our Paleolithic ancestors ate than those obese, corn-fed cows, right? It's better for us. The same goes for pigs, chickens, turkeys, and whatever other animals you like to eat. They're healthier for us when they are healthy, and that means they need to eat the right food. Their own "Paleo" diet, if you will. You get it. But how on God's earth are you supposed to find the … Continue reading


You Are What You Eat

Today I’d like to focus on something that is incredibly close to my heart: the importance of the source of your meats.  I was a vegetarian for about 10 years, and my reason for not eating meat was my bleeding heart for animals’ welfare.  I'm about to go PETA on you for a minute, so beware.

Meat Labels – What Do They Mean?

I don’t know about you, but I spend a LOT of time at the meat counter at the grocery store.  I love my meat.  We all do, otherwise we probably wouldn’t be Paleo. Not all meats are created equally, though, and they all have different, sometimes confusing labels on them – all natural, organic, grass-fed, free-range, etc.  Instead of just throwing up your hands in confusion and settling for the cheapest option, I want you to be versed in the … Continue reading

Beef Jerky


Homemade Jerky There is a lot of information out there on how to make jerky, and we've decided that this site, nutritionator.com, has a good recipe and some great links to marinades for beef jerky.

Place the meat, sliced as directed in the recipes, in your oven on … Continue reading
