This week I asked around the gym to find out if there were any recipes that folks might like to have…and what I heard were requests for things like “paleo banana bread”, or “paleo pumpkin cheese cake”.  While there are PLENTY of recipes out there that I could recommend, I DON’T WANT TO.

It reminded me of a blog I read a while back from our friends at Whole9life.com.  At some point…we all try to ‘cheat’ the paleo system.  We think that we can still make pizza, brownies, pancakes…and by simply switching around a few ingredients we are absolved from the consequences that come from eating a treat.   Too often these ‘treats’ become a staple back in our diet.  Read here to find out how Paleo-fying your junkfood is like “having sex with your pants“… less then satisfying!

And…now for this week’s recipes:

Kale with Cranberries
Everyday Paleo Enchiladas
Basic Tomato Sauce
Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup
Sunshine Sauce (peanut sauce replacement!)
