Every group of friends has one. We're talking, of course, about the tribe of Paleo dieters who have gone pre-Amish in their old-fashioned eating style. Or to be exact, the Paleolithic era. This caveman-inspired diet—eschewing grains, dairy, legumes, and processed foods—was first popularized in the 1970s and has seen such a recent resurgence that we're half expecting the Geico commercials to make a comeback. Not to mention, many in the gluten-free crowd basically follow a similar diet. So whether you eat like a carnivorous caveman or not, it's definitely worth knowing where to go to grab the best Paleo-friendly meals across the country. Lucky for you, we've gathered the most lip-smacking options in the U.S.

Here are some of the highlights of our list: New York City’s Hu Kitchen offers many Paleo options. Verde Cocina Café in Portland, Oregon serves up healthy Mexican food all entirely gluten-free. One of the highlights about following a Paleo diet is the amount of delicious meats one can consume. At Buenos Aires Café in Austin, Texas, the “Parillada” (grilled meat plate for two) is served with vegetables. Los Angeles favorite Gjelina offers a wide range of mindfully sourced small plate dishes at their rustic, wood-accented space.

The Complete Paleo Food List

Here at PaleoPlan, we believe that you should have a simple guide to help you easily say &ldquoyes&rdquo or &ldquono&rdquo to certain foods. In addition to our Paleo diet food list, you should also consider using our free Paleo recipes, or try our Paleo Meal Plan free for 14 days.

The PaleoPlan meal plan makes following a Paleo diet really easy, since your menus, recipes, shopping lists, and even prep notes are all laid out for you.

In general, eating Paleo means eating veggies, fruits, meats, fish, certain fats, nuts, and seeds. It means removing grains (breads, pastas, rice, etc), beans, soy, dairy, certain vegetable oils, and refined sugar from your diet. But you probably want more details than that, right?

Below, you&rsquoll find our complete Paleo Food List. This is a list of foods and to what extent they are accepted as Paleo. Our guidelines are created using a mixture of all of the Paleo gurus&rsquo philosophies and research, our own beliefs, and what is realistic to implement in your daily life.

For all of the foods listed, our hope is that you choose the highest quality that you can afford, i.e. grass-fed and pastured meats when available instead of conventional meats, as well as organic and local produce when it is an option.


Water: Situk River
Targets: Sockeye and Pink Salmon
The Situk gets less attention than some of Alaska’s other rivers, and while it sees its share of traffic during the spring and fall steelhead runs, anglers all but disappear in the summer. Big mistake, because the Situk has strong runs of pink and sockeye salmon waiting for anyone seeking solitude.

Water: Saguaro Lake
Target: Largemouth Bass
A fish kill in 2005 decimated Saguaro’s largemouth population. However, with rejuvenated grass growth, clean mountain water flow, and a resurgence of baitfish, the bass population has rebounded big time. Saguaro is now a top trophy lake in Arizona, and one that the locals consider a hidden gem.

Creamy Tuscan Chicken This creamy paleo tuscan chicken is a super-tasty one-skillet meal that’s perfect for weeknights and full of flavor! Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are seared and cooked with a creamy sauce packed with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Paleo, dairy-free, Whole30, and Keto friendly! One-skillet dinners make my ain’t-no-time-momma heart sing. That’s a real thing, of course. And by “heart singing” I just mean I feel approximately 15% less stressed out by the chaos of life when I know I can make dinner in just one skillet. I’m sure there’s at least a few of you ladies out there who can relate! When there’s only one skillet needed to cook dinner from start to finish, it gives me hope that I can, in fact, make it to 9pm without a complete meltdown. Not anything to take lightly – we need these one-skillet meals. Okay, hopefully I’ve sold you on the one-skillet thing but if not, I’m sure I will with everything else about the actual recipe. It’s a creamy Tuscan chicken that’s totally dairy-free, paleo, gluten-free and packed with veggies! It’s relatively low in carbs as well, with the only carb source really being the sun-dried tomatoes. If you’d like an even lower-carb keto option, you can always use fewer sun dried tomatoes. For the chicken, I knew from the start I’d have to go with boneless skinless THIGHS, not breasts. Breasts are great if you’re “breading” your chicken but honestly they are way too dry in my opinion for anything else – even a creamy sauce. The thighs cook almost as quickly and they have 10x the flavor, crispiness, and juiciness of the breasts. We’ll season them, sauté, and then remove from the skillet while we make the yummy sauce. So yes – it’s one skillet only, but, you’ll need a plate of some sort. Use a paper one if you’re like me and can’t stand the thought of another dish! The sauce itself is similar many creamy sauces I make – a combination of chicken bone broth and coconut milk, with some tapioca to thicken. I add a little stone ground mustard and nutritional yeast as well, which, in my opinion, cuts the flavor of the coconut milk enough so that you can barely taste it. I know many of you are sensitive to coconut flavor, so if you really want to cut the taste, you can use a bit more tapioca to thicken, more broth, and less coconut milk. But, I encourage you to try the recipe as written since the coconut flavor is really quite minimal! I hope you’re ready for a full-of-flavor, one-skillet meal that you’ll want to throw right into your dinner rotation ASAP! Grab your chicken and a nice big skillet because it’s time to cook – let’s go! 8. Roasted Vegetables

The easiest way of dealing with almost any vegetable is to just toss it on a tray with some Paleo cooking fat and roast it until it’s soft and delicious. Roasting more assertive vegetables like broccoli or Brussels sprouts brings out their inner sweetness and makes them much more palatable for kids.

Here’s a basic recipe for oven-roasted cabbage to get you started, but remember: you can apply the same technique to almost anything!


The Top 27 Spots in the US to Get Popsicles On Ridiculously Hot Summer Days

Summer has finally arrived. Put down that scoop and tub, because it is popsicle time. Or, more specifically, it’s paleta time.

But first, what is a paleta and how does it differ from a posicles? A popsicle is simply a water-based frozen treat with no focus on fresh produce, often full of artificial ingredients and added sugar.

A paleta is basically a tastier, better-for-you popsicle with an emphasis on fresh, natural ingredients. The Latin American ice pop is usually made from fresh fruit, but it can also be made from a milk base.

Ice-based paletas have the texture of a traditional ice pop and flavors include cucumber, strawberry, cantaloupe and more. Milk-based paletas usually have a creamy texture with flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, coconut, and more.

Check out this list of 27 popsicle shops that all focus on using fresh ingredients, with most actually serving paletas. Kiss ice cream goodbye because it’s time for some popsicle action up in here.

Top 7 BBQ Brisket Rub Recipes

A great barbecue brisket is built by having layers of flavor, and those layers begin with a barbecue rub. Brisket rubs can be simple or complex in a wide range of barbecue styles, from wet to dry rubs that span from sweet to spicy.

But before you choose a barbecue rub for your brisket, there are a few things to consider, like how much rub you need and when to apply it. When it comes to the amount, there really is no special formula—you can put on as much rub as the meat will hold. Pat dry your brisket with paper towels and then sprinkle with the rub (you don't actually have to rub it on). Whatever adheres to the brisket is the amount needed.

The timing, however, does need some consideration. If the rub you are using contains a lot of salt, you will want to apply it right before you put the brisket in the smoker. If the rub is low in salt or doesn't have any, then you can apply it several hours in advance to let the flavors sink in. Leaving a large amount of salt on meat will cause it to cure and the flavor will be more like jerky and less like barbecue brisket.
