Lucas Root of Urban Paleo Chef today announced the release of his Top 5 “Second Date” Recipes for 2014. The debut marks the culmination of months of testing, tasting, and reworking to create the ultimate menu for a romantic home date night.

Driven by a longstanding love for cooking and dedication to healthy living, Root has been an advocate of the paleo diet since embarking on the new lifestyle with his wife in 2010.
