Paleo Diet

Below you will find all of my healthy Paleo Diet recipes. The Paleo Diet is the diet of our ancestors. The Paleolithic era occurred during the period spanning from 10,000 to 2.5 million years ago. During that time we were hunter-gatherers. That all changed with the advent of the agricultural revolution when we began eating grains.

It was around 10,000 years ago that grains were introduced into our diet. This has been a radical dietary shift for mankind. For 99% of our existence man has lived on a grain-free Paleo Diet. Therefore, grains are a “new food.”

I believe that certain people such as myself are not adapted to digest grains and that the consumption of grains can cause chronic “untreatable” health conditions.

Why? Grains contain certain anti-nutrients which prevent their absorption in the gut. The anti-nutrients in grains serve as an evolutionary strategy to protect the integrity of the grain so that it can survive. This same protection creates harm in the body of people such as myself. I have been grain free since 2001 and it has helped my health quite a bit!
