Home Cuisine spotlights "paleo" diet with shrimp and spaghetti squash

Posted: Updated:

Paleo or Caveman diets are based on a simple premise, if the cavemen didn't eat it, you shouldn't either. So long to refined sugar, dairy, legumes, and grains  (this is pre-agricultural revolution); hello to meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. Home Cuisine's Mae Pike explains how this can be adapted for modern men and women to eat healthier and maintain a healthy weight.
