When asked why she turned her culinary emphasis toward Paleo, Chef Leahy acknowledged the trend towards healthy eating often comes at the expense of taste.

My goal in writing 'Paleo Easy as 1-2-3' is to use my expertise as a professional chef to help my readers create delicious, healthy meals at home with recipes that are both original and easy to prepare.'
