A Paleo diet is a lifestyle to alter the health issues most of us encounter, when we have long-lasting "allergies" or "sensitivities" to eating most proceessed foods. The Paleo lifestyle of dieting is a way of eating whole foods that are minimally processed and full of vitamins and micro-nutrients.
Paleo meals can help calm inflammation. Inflammation is the leading cause of today's most dangerous ailments. Inflammation is like a small, on-going fire in the body, you may not even be aware of it except for unexplained aches and pains. The foods included in the Paleo diet meet the genetic requirements of the human body for nutrient absorption and a healthy immune system.
And, unfortunately, our SAD (Standard American Diet) diets contribute to these "small fires" that cause us so much discomfort. Because our diets are working against us in the fight to stay healthy, inflammation is reaching pandemic levels.
If you are already saavy in your kitchen and like to cook, you will love cooking Paleo-style.
This is the food pyramid that best fits paleo meals.
