I hear one thing a lot from people who are wary of the Paleo diet.   “What about my pasta??”  I get it!  I too used to carbo load a huge plate of spaghetti before every race I’ve ever done… and this goes back to 1976 when I started swimming.  Why anyone would need to carbo load for a 25 butterfly I have NO idea!  But back to my point about the fact we all love pasta.  And typical wheat pasta is a big no no in the paleo world.   So let me introduce you to this:


Say hello to my friend Butternut Squash Lasagna.  I had to take pictures from the book Primal Cravings because everytime I’ve made this, we eat it before I can snap a shot of it.  IT’S THAT GOOD!  I’ve also made it with sweet potatoes instead of the squash.  Both are fabulous.  I do add a bit more cheese, but that’s just me.  This recipe alone is reason enough to buy Primal Cravings.  I have a direct link to it here:

 I hope you enjoy this recipe… and so many other healthy options in the book!

      HI Kathleen… the link is to the book itself. They don’t put their recipes on the internet so I feel like I can’t give them away either. However, there are great free recipes online, so if you don’t want to buy the book, just google search paleo recipes. HOpe this helps!
