This week's recipes are complements of our friend, Rob, a native Virginian. Rob is quite a character with his southern drawl and uniquely entertaining take on life. He is the only person I know who got into CrossFit, truly excelled at it, left it for a year, and is now back full force. During his year off, Rob gained 20 pounds, he and his wife had their first baby, and he became a business owner. Rob works with my husband and nephew, so I see him just about every weekday. And while Rob initially turned his nose up at paleo, he couldn't resist for long while enmeshed in our paleocentric environment. (By the way, Rob lost his 20 pounds within 6 weeks of going back to CrossFit and starting paleo.) Now he's shared some of his favorite home-cooked Southern comfort foods with me AND you. I made a few tweaks here and there to make them paleo. But the most important lesson I learned this week is that sometimes less is more, even with ingredients. If you are looking for a simple yet delicious meal plan with few ingredients, this is it! Enjoy!
