Father’s Day is right around the corner, and to celebrate all the awesome dads in our lives, I have put together 58 Menly Men Father’s Day Paleo recipes that are sure to make them happy!
Dads are crazy important. They are our “pack” leaders, our spiritual leaders, our examples to follow, the ones who protect us, who show us what hard work looks like, who lead by example, who we know will have our back no matter what and who help us open impossible jars. Haha! Dads are amazing, but being a dad has to be tough and exhausting at times, which is why I am incredibly grateful for mine.
My dad lives in Quito-Ecuador, where I was born and raised. My whole family is still back in Ecuador, actually, so I only get to see my dad a few times a year (like one or two times max, since our cities are so far away from each other). I honestly can’t remember the last time I was able to spend Father’s Day with him; must’ve been June 2009, the summer before I started college. I need to change this, ASAP!
My dad was always our pack leader and the head of the family. When I was a little girl, I remember thinking that my dad was the strongest man on the planet, and that there was no one on earth who could mess with him. I remember feeling protected and safe with him around, because I knew that no matter the circumstance, my dad would handle it and keep us all sheltered and happy. In my mind, no one was taller, stronger, smarter or handsomer than him. What a great way to feel about your own father, right?
I feel so blessed to have been born in the family I did, because my parents are both amazing people who gave their all to raise a wonderful family, and who are to this day there for their children no matter what. My siblings and I had a great childhood and it was all due to our parents; their hard work, kindness and love truly made us grow up to be good, honest and caring human beings. Dad and mom, if you guys are reading this, thank you so much for all you’ve done for us. I will never be able to repay all that you’ve done and continue to do for us. I love you! And dad, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Wish I could be there with you on your special dad day.
I don’t know about your guys’ dad, but my dad is a BBQ fanatic. He loves all things meat, and bacon and sauce and more meat. So, keeping my dad in mind, I crawled the web and gathered the best dad-oriented recipes I could find, all of which are Paleo approved and super delicious. Below are all 58 of them! Take a peek; I am sure you’ll find one or two that you know your dad would love!
If you’re able to spend Father’s Day with your dad, be sure to honor him. Heck, take him to do some of his favorite things and make him a killer Paleo dish! I bet he’d be thrilled to eat a home cooked meal prepared by his baby.
Happy Father’s Day to all of those great and strong dads out there!
