If you have been looking into paleo or been following it for any period of time, then you are going to have heard the name Diane Sanfilippo. If you haven’t then you may know her very popular program The 21 Day Sugar Detox (21DSD) or her award winning book Practical Paleo. Diane is a certified holistic nutrition consultant from the United States and shares her wealth of knowledge on her popular blog and podcast Balanced Bites.

Many of the dishes became family favourites, but none more than the dish that I am going to share with you today.

This week was my final detox week. I felt confident going into the third week that it would be as easy as the first two weeks, and it was.

When you are time poor having the meal plan and recipes within easy reach can be a huge tool to utilise, to make life easier.
