But even though you’re no longer eating some of those foods, there is no reason you can’t enjoy some …

You may be wondering how or why I decided to develop this Paleo-friendly chicken parm recipe… Well, after years of eating Paleo and being one of those folks who occasionally would use almond flour in place of wheat flour, my once walnut-only allergy developed further into an all-nut allergy.
