What’s New?

We recently changed site hosting companies to SiteGround.   The Primal Desire is loading way faster now (YAY!)!  I only have good things to say about these guys (customer support, speed, services), and if you are in need of a change, use the link above, or contact me with questions.

Lots more changes on the way…

Who Are We?

We are Holley and Raj.  We both like to cook.  We like to eat.  We are funny (we tell each other all the time).  Oh, and we're both single!  You can read all about the dynamic duo that makes up our team here.

What is the “Paleo” Diet?

Not sure what the paleo diet is?  How is the “primal” or “lacto-paleo” diet different?  What are our thoughts on this and why?  Read about all that here.

Recipes: Unique Combinations

Although we enjoy paleoizing classic recipes, we are both creative and playful in the kitchen using unusual “marriages of culinary genius”.  A few of the interesting recipes that we think you should take a look at are:
