What is Paleo?
Thursday, 11 April 2013
For a few months now I have been posting my recipes and blog link to my facebook profile for friends to see and enjoy the food I make. Most people who train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are very concious of what they eat and constantly watch and keep their diet clean as much as possible.
When my friends look at my blog, I'm sure many are intrigued as to what paleo is, and how they can incorporate it to their every day lifestyle.
This is what Wiki-pedia says: The paleolithic diet, also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet
All Paleo boils down to is natural raw foods, lean meat, fish, dairy, fruit, veg and seeds. Food that does not come from a packet or been processed from grains.
Eating the Paleo way helps if you have IBS and find that bread or starchy foods bloat you.
The food is colourful and healthy and the fats that are in the food are good fats that our body needs.
Junk food is out of the question. To get these images I googled 'Beige Food'.
