I have been researching the Paleo diet lately & happy to learn a lot of it is similar to what I eat, just way healthier. Paleo is mostly gluten, grain & dairy free with an emphasis on proteins like fish & lots of veggies & fruits….I have tried it a little on my own but know with a book like Elana’s, it will be much easier to stay on track.

Heres a sneak peek at one of my favorite recipes so far….
Makes 16 brownies
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup Spectrum all-vegetable shortening
1 cup coconut sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with shortening.
In a medium saucepan over very low heat, melt the chocolate chips until smooth.
Remove the pan from the heat, then mix in the shortening and coconut sugar.
Stir in the eggs and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached.
Let the brownies cool in the baking dish for 1 hour. Cut into 16 squares and serve.
