Paleo; the cavemen diet

Many of you have probably heard of the Paleo diet. The trend is everywhere. The Paleo diet wants people to eat ‘primal’, the way our ancestors the cavemen and women did. The concept of this diet revolves around the fact that human beings evolved with very different eating habits and less wealth related health problems like heart and vascular diseases or diabetes. The entire idea of this diet is to only eat the things our cavemen ancestors would eat. So what does that imply? When you follow the diet you are not allowed to eat any processed food. So say goodbye to your bread, pasta, grains, sugar, dairy, legumes and candy and cookies.

Here is what you can eat:
- eggs
-meat (salmon, poultry, tenderloin, turkey)

The paleo diet gets people to cook more. Pre-cooked and packaged food is to be found in almost every household these days. Paleo forces the dieter to cook with fresh and whole foods. Because the diet focusses on fruit and vegetables so paleo people will never have a shortage of nutrients. By eating so much fruit and vegetable people consume healthy carbs and fibre. By drinking almond or coconut milk they keep their calcium intake at the right level without dairy. Paleo also increases the number of customers in local, sustainable, humane and organic stores. And in that way is good for the (local) economy and environment. Less packaging and products without artificial garbage in them can only be good for humans and the world they live in.

Here are a few easy paleo recipes if you want to try the paleo diet:

Paleo breakfast coconut pancakes
3 eggs
35 grammes of coconut flour
60 ml coconut milk
20 grammes of melted coconut butter
