Southern food and the paleo diet may not seem like they even belong in the same thought, let alone the same cookbook, but author Jennifer Robins is changing all that with Down South Paleo. All your favorite comfort food has been converted, but just because there’s no dairy, gluten or sugar doesn’t mean there’s no flavor. Browse through and you’ll see the classics, revamped to deep-fried, crispy perfection.

This is everything you think of when you think of good ol’ homemade fried chicken — hot, crispy, juicy, savory! Leave out the dairy and grain for a paleo twist on an old Southern favorite!
