Brief Introduction to Paleo Diet and Some Delicious Paleo Diet Recipes

The Paleolithic diet, or the Paleo diet is a modern diet that is designed to emulate the diet of humans during the Paleolithic era. It is believed by the proponents of the Paleo diet that eating what our ancestors ate will shield us from modern diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and cancer. While the Paleo diet is indeed a diet fad, it does make some good points and proposes some pretty tasty Paleo diet recipes. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Paleo diet, its origins and reasoning and some delicious Paleo diet recipes that will make any modern eater turn Paleolithic!

About the Paleo Diet

The first mentioning of such a diet was made in a book published by Walter Voegtlin in 1975 called The Stone Age Diet. Since then, there were numerous studies, articles and books written about this diet fad that is gaining popularity these days. The man who owns the trademark for the Pale Diet is Loren Cordain, author of many Paleolithic diet books and leading expert on this diet.

The Paleolithic era lasted for around 2.5 million years and it ended quite recently (around 10,000 years ago), right before the advent of agriculture and the domestication of animals. When you think about it, the Paleo diet makes some sense. Man only recently started eating grains, which is why so many people are either allergic or intolerant to gluten, dairy and various legumes. The easiest answer to the question why is modern man so allergic to modern food is that modern food is simply too modern for the modern man.

Naturally, the Paleo diet has its fair share of critics who say that there is plenty of evidence that the paleo man ate lots of grains and legumes and that humans in general are much more flexible from a nutritional standpoint than it is believed. Whether that is true or not, we suggest you give it a try and see if it works for you. It does have benefits that even the diet’s critics cannot deny; it encourages people to eat less to no processed food items, which means less salt, less oils and less sugar. With these three culprits kept at a minimum, a person’s body can ward off many diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Paleo Diet Tips

Kids and adults, athletes and couch potatoes, anyone can follow the Paleo diet plan, anyone can get into the Paleo zone. Whether you do it for weight loss, for your health of because you’ve read about it on a blog or in a book, the Paleo diet is beneficial. In today’s society, when most of our food is heavily processed, a lifestyle/diet that proposed minimally processed foods is welcomed.

We’ve got three free tips for people who want to get into the Paleo diet:

  1. Read About It!

The only way one can learn anything about anything is to read about that thing. Same goes for the Paleo diet. If you’re passionate about cooking, then read all you can about how to cook anything from a simple salad, a snack food, a smoothie, to a chicken and vegetable roast or a Paleo coconut cake.

  1. Get the Right Utensils

Because the Paleo diet is very meat friendly, to say the least, we suggest you buy the right tools for cooking meat, such as a pressure cooker and a crockpot. You don’t want to take forever cooking dinner.

  1. Enjoy the Food You are Eating

Life is way too short not to enjoy the food that you are eating, so if you’re not enjoying the Paleo diet, then don’t follow it anymore. Find something that will work for you and keep your tummy and spirits happy!
