Paleo Cauliflower Lasagna

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

I started the Paleo Diet a few months ago and surprisingly it's easier to follow than I initially thought. Especially when you find recipes like this!!! Cauliflower Lasagna

First things first. What's the Paleo Diet? Well, it's short for Paleolithic and also know as the Caveman Diet. Basically your diet consists of meats/fish, veggies and fruits {portions should be served in that order; largest to smallest}. The two rules I try to follow are:

1. If it comes in a box or package, usually you shouldn't eat it. {Cereals, chips, frozen dinners, etc}
2. NO dairy, processed oils, refined sugars and salts, grains, or legumes. This includes peanuts, kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans and black eyed peas. {Haha Mom and Dad! All those years forcing me to eat beans. Now I don't have to. Shucks!} Potatoes and corn are a no-no too. {I have a hard time cutting out these two.}

So, yes, the diet can seem a little challenging when you start off or you're traveling. {Trust me, I still crave bread!} But then I stumbled onto Ciarra's Popular Paleo website. She has so many delicious recipes ESPECIALLY her Cauliflower Lasagna. We tried it for the first time the other night and I don't think we'll ever try another recipe.


She made her "noodles" from mashed cauliflower!
 And this bolognese sauce is to die for!
Head over to Popular Paleo to check out this recipe and more! Trust me, your body will thank you for it!

Thanks for stopping by!
