20 Delicious Paleo Side Dishes as seen on JennsRAQ.com

I love that paleo food makes me feel so healthy.  You’re able to enjoy natural carbs, satisfying fats, and a huge range of fruits and vegetables.  A lot of people think of paleo as a heavy meat-based diet, but it really doesn’t have to be.

The sides I’ve found here would also make delicious main dishes!  Eat until you are satisfied, and enjoy the different flavors and textures.
