Paleo Diet 468 results

The Paleo diet was first brought into the spotlight by Loren Cordain, PhD, one of the world’s leading experts on the Paleolithic diet, and author of the best-selling book “The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Food You Were Designed to Eat.” Dr. Cordain’s extensive research focused on the evolutionary and anthropological basis for dietary health and the links between modern diets and disease.
Recently, the Paleo diet has surged in popularity. Also known as the primal diet, caveman diet, Stone Age diet, or hunter-gatherer diet, it consists of fresh vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts, wild fish, free-range poultry, and grass-fed meat. It excludes all grains, legumes, dairy products, refined sugars, and processed oils. The modern Paleo diet is a whole lifestyle of particular foods and exercise, and it has many interpretations.

Best Dairy-free Parmesan Cheese

This is probably the best recipe I ever created. Back in 2012 I was allergic to cheese. Since I LOVE Italian food, I was HIGHLY MOTIVATED to recreate the flavor of Parmigiano Reggiano! This is coconut cheese with a ZING! Grate it, slice it, or cut into chunks. Instead of dairy, it uses coconut butter, lemon, nutritional yeast, and optional Vitamin C for a sharp, aged cheese flavor. BTW I lost my cheese allergy! I discovered I can tolerate dairy that's organic, grass-fed, and unpasteur...

Gong Fu Chicken with Fermented Natto Anti-viral

I call it Gong Fu Chicken, meaning Achievement of Man, which describes this sauce perfectly. A yummy superfood! It turns out the world's highest concentration of Vitamin K2, may also be an antidote for the spike protein. A study published in the journal ‘Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications‘ holds that extract of Natto breaks down the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. OK, what is Natto?  Natto is a fermented soybean dish in Japan. It's a serious superfood and will boost your health to the moon. However, I need to warn you, the flavor is strange. Since it is very healthy and greatly needed in our time, I invented this recipe to "cover" the taste. But it will take most Westerners some time to develop a taste for Natto. See resource links below. ...

The night I invented it, I lay wide awake staring at the full moon. I had just discovered that fine ground "flour" as we know it is neither healthy nor Paleolithic. I mean, how could they hand grind wild seeds on a stone on the floor of a cave? Suddenly I had a vision of fluffy buckwheat pancakes without flour. Yep, sounds impossible. Immediately I got up to soak some buckwheat groats. Next morning, the results were the sweetest, fluffiest, tastiest pancakes ever! We were eating them with apple butter within 15 minutes! A major discovery! ...
