National Bacon Lover’s Day August 20th

August 20th is “National Bacon Lover’s Day” so what better time to fry some up with your runny eggs and spinach, dice it up on top of a salad or wrap a piece around a pitted date for a decadent dessert?

Finding Paleo-friendly foods can become a challenge. But it’s still worth the effort. Our new posts for July were all about

Fasting – Ancestral Cure For Diabetes?

Today, we are bombarded with high-calorie foods; sweetened coffee, sugary drinks, processed snacks, and convenience food. This environment of caloric excess is at odds with our evolutionary past. In combination with our modern sedentary lifestyle, this sets us up for obesity, type II diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors did not eat three meals a day, nor did they snack at regular intervals.

Processed, Cured and Smoked Meats: Definitely Not Paleo!

As more and more people adopt the Paleo Diet, controversy has arisen as to which dietary elements actually comprise a contemporary “Paleo Diet”.  Or more precisely, which current foods, food groups or food additives should be included or excluded in modern day diets as we try to emulate the nutritional characteristics of our pre-agricultural ancestors?   A number of popular-day and charismatic bloggers suggest that processed meats such as bacon and other cured, processed and smoked meats should be part of contemporary Paleo Diets on a daily basis (1-3).   Surprisingly, one of the contested elements that charismatic bloggers advocate
