PHOENIX -- One of the latest trends in healthy eating is inspired by cavemen. But while "paleo" means old or ancient, popular paleo diet dishes are anything but.

Sunfare shared a recipe for pumpkin pancakes with blueberry sauce. The pancakes are prepared with a focus on low-carb, sugar-free and high healthy fat ingredients, such as organic pumpkin puree, olive oil, almond meal flour and agave. Then they are topped with a naturally sweetened blueberry sauce that lends just the right amount of tartness.
