Paleo menu ideas
The myriad claims of fad diets can overwhelm us. One touts the benefits of meat and protein; another argues only vegetables are healthy. Some diets even include only one type of food. A Paleo menu gets back to basics by emphasizing a variety of foods such as meat, eggs, fish, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fresh fruits. It does not include grains or refined sugar, as these items did not exist in Paleolithic times. Many people in our busy society shy away from such whole foods based diets because they feel these items take too long to prepare. But, the Paleo cook book makes this way of eating easy and delicious.
Most people want to include more natural foods in their diet, but they worry about the time and effort it takes to prepare meals from scratch. As a result, we consume far too much fast, easy, and, frankly, unhealthy food. This cookbook shows the reader how to prepare natural foods in a hassle-free, quick way that will fit every person’s lifestyle. The book also shows the correct way to cook these foods by using the same methods our hunter-gatherer ancestors did. The recipes are not only nutritious and nourishing, but quite tasty. With some creativity, the author has made these age-old foods delicious by combining them with spices, herbs, and natural oils. A Paleo menu doesn’t allow refined sugar, but that doesn’t mean the cookbook skips desserts. The author includes several fresh fruit recipes to satisfy sugar cravings naturally.
Every dieter knows the perils of fad dieting: A person loses weight quickly only to put it back on again within a few months, or cravings make a diet impossible to keep. The Paleo cook book shows readers how to stick with Paleo eating and make it a lifestyle. Further, people generally feel better eating these nutritionally dense foods because they help regulate blood sugar, increase metabolism, and provide more energy. Once people start eating right, junk food cravings diminish. However, this cookbook provides suggestions for continuing to eat right even when those cravings occur.
A healthy lifestyle involves more than just informed food choices. However, with so much junk food out there, it is refreshing to see a Paleo cook book which makes preparing non-processed, organic food easier. Professionals claim that there is both an obesity and a Type II diabetes epidemic in the U.S. They argue that a poor diet is mostly to blame. Because the Paleo diet reduces sugar intake and is composed only of natural foods, it is a great start to combating both of these epidemics, and this cookbook makes the diet easy to implement and fun to eat.
