Featured Recipe: Cucumber Turkey Sub

There are a few things that are hard to give up when going paleo purely out of convenience sake, and sandwiches are definitely one of them. We have made a few different paleo “breads” in the past and while they might do the trick for satisfying the bread craving, they really aren’t very convenient. Not many people in this day and age bake their own bread when they are needing to make a quick sandwich, so that’s why I love this recipe! The crisp cucumber is holds it all together, is quick to prepare, and makes for the perfect finger food. No baking needed! Check it out.
