Pump Up with Simple Paleo Dinners

“Bacon

The super-trendy Paleo diet--aka the caveman diet—involves a return to the types of foods our ancestors ate before the Agricultural Revolution. Typical Paleo meals include primarily animal proteins (sorry vegetarians,) lots of fresh or frozen vegetables and a moderate amount of fruit and nuts.  The diet cuts out grains entirely and allows a very limited amount of dairy products.
