As I’ve talked with friends, colleagues and family about starting this blog many have no idea what the paleo diet is. The paleo diet, to me, is eating a diet of whole real foods focusing on quality meats, vegetables and healthy fats. There are a few foods that I avoid, but I would rather focus on the filling, scrumptious, healthy food I do eat - and you can eat too- here on this blog.
There are many great resources on the web if you are interested in the ways eating a paleo style diet can help your health. I highly suggest Robb Wolf's website. It is a good starting point for the paleo basics. If you are looking for one on one help with concerns specific to you, I recommend his team of registered dietitians. I have been working with Amy Kubal for the past year and cannot express my gratitude enough for how she has helped me enjoy eating again. I had the pleasure of meeting her (in person) and Robb Wolf at PaleoFX in March.
If you're looking for an informative piece on why a paleo diet avoids certain foods, I really enjoyed this article over at Fitbomb.com.
Even if you don't buy in to the paleo diet, I hope you will try some of these recipes and see the value in adding more real food to your diet.
