Seven Warm and Sensational Paleo Indian Recipes to Spice Up Your Life

I started my Paleo journey back in 2014. I know that sounds corny, but like so many others who have shared their experiences with me, that path to health was life changing. It was truly a journey. I had spent over a decade battling with my weight and body image. I tried it all: pills; supplements; diets; you name it. I tried everything except surgery and failed miserably. I just couldn’t stick to anything. I finally decided enough was enough. Something had to change. And that’s when a good friend recommended the Paleo diet. At first, I dismissed it as

Paleo-friendly Fruit / Vegetable Juice and Puree Recipes – Fruit Juice Part II

Jonesing for Juice? Got a hankering for a smoothie? Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that because your sugar is coming from fruit that it’s okay to eat a lot of it. “The liver doesn’t know whether sugar came from fruit or not,” said Kimber Stanhope, a researcher at the University of California, Davis, who studies the effects of sugar on health1. In part I of my series on fruit juice I explain why you need to be careful about fruit juice, even when it comes from fresh fruit. But while relying on a daily morning all-fruit smoothie is

Revisiting Sea Salt: Dr. Cordain Responds to a Reader’s Comment

As the Paleo movement has grown, many within the community have broadened the original template to include other ingredients that we at ThePaleoDiet.com do not feel should be included as a Paleo staple.  This is not to say that these additions should never be consumed, we have always agreed, that for most people, non-Paleo foods can be included in a healthy diet with an 85:15, Paleo:non-Paleo ratio.  But even if an ingredient can be argued as natural, one should still assess the likely availability, and hence its evolutionary influence upon humans, while also examining the current scientific literature with respect

Simple Ways to Reduce Omega-6s and Increase Omega-3s in Your Diet for Better Health

If there’s one area where the nutrition media seems to sing a different and more confusing tune every week, it’s with their messages about fats. Low fat was good for us, now it’s not. Saturated fats may not be the heart-clogging poison we thought. And what exactly are trans fats? It’s enough to make us throw our hands in the air and reach for the nearest burger. Fortunately, one message has been consistent: omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are extremely beneficial for your overall health.   The problem is, not all sources of omega-3 fatty acids are created equal.

Is Juicing Paleo? Or Even Healthy? Hint: it’s in the glycemic load… Part I

We’ve all done it. We’re rushing out of the house in a hurry and rather than making time to eat a properly balanced meal, we decide to stop off at the local juice bar to grab a ‘healthy’ meal to go. But is this really a good idea? It’s easy to think so. After all, when we walk into a juice shop and see phrases and words we identify as healthy like cold-pressed, natural, organic or alkaline, we’re conditioned to think that the food or beverage is therefore a great option for nourishment, especially when we compare a juice to

Pemmican: A Plains Indians Staple Food that Prevented Protein Poisoning

Introduction In a previous blog post (http://thepaleodiet.com/north-american-plains-indians -tall-and -robust-meat-eaters-but-not-a-milk-drinker-among-them/) I demonstrated how the diets of North American Plains Indians during the 19th century allowed them to become the tallest humans in the world. All available evidence indicates 1-4 that they ate a very high (76–85% of total calories) 1 animal based diet throughout their lives, primarily from consumption of buffalo (Bison bison) meat and organs, as I have shown in my last blog post. With a high animal based diet, one of the inherent problems that these peoples surely must have known was that unlimited and high consumption of lean
