"Mmm... me want food." Sometimes, we just have to go back to our roots. A new diet takes a cue from our ancestors, and is really starting to catch on. Caleb Summers, of Evolve Personal Paleo Chef, told us all about the Paleo Diet. He also cooked us up a great Paleo dish.

Lamb:
1 rack of Lamb

2TBSP Fresh Thyme
1TBSP Salt
2TBSP Olive or Grape Seed Oil

1. Process together the rosemary, thyme, salt and oil.

5. Pull from oven and LET REST!
6. Cut and enjoy.

Pan Sauce:
Drippings from the lamb
1tsp deli mustard

2 cups of stock
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Using the pan the lamb was cooked in, place on stovetop.
2. Add 2 cups of stock to your pan.
3. Scrape the little bits of lamb off the bottom with your spoon as you stir.
4. Add in the mustard and honey and reduce until nape (until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.)
5. Adjust the salt and pepper as necessary.

Colcannon:

2 stalks of leeks, trimmed
