Organic Gardening at The Paleo Diet

With the wide variety of fresh fruits and veggies consumed on a daily basis, we happily welcome the growing season by preparing and planting our organic gardens.  If you have never grown your own food, this is a great time to give a backyard garden a try.  At The Paleo Diet, we have been tending to lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, peppers, cucumbers, kale, parsley, basil, and German thyme, just to name a few.  Follow us throughout the summer and into the fall as we report on our progress and share tips and tricks for a successful harvest.  We are also sharing

Keeping Your Kids on Track While on Summer Vacation

Chicken nuggets, pizza, and spaghetti. That’s just a few of the items seen all too commonly on the ‘kid’s’ section of a menu at eateries ranging from upscale to the local hole in the wall. While many parents are becoming more and more aware of how important it is to be conscientious of what their children are eating at home and at school, all too often even the best eating strategies can go out the window when it comes to dining on vacation. If the parents’ mindset is such that eating on vacation necessitates making less than ideal food choices,

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

ButcherBox . . .

A cornerstone of following a Paleo diet is to consume sustainable, naturally-fed animal products. Purchasing these products at your local grocery store is not always possible and, when it is, it seems way more expensive than it should be! That’s where ButcherBox comes in – they provide 100% grass-fed beef, organic/pastured chicken, and Heritage Breed pork delivered (they offer free 2 – 5 day delivery to the contiguous 48 states) on your schedule for less than $6.50 per meal. All of their products are antibiotic and hormone free. Their beef is exactly the way nature intended and sourced from a

That means good summer recipes and some helpful tips on the things that most of us spend a lot of time doing over the summer – travel and spending time with the kids. We hope you enjoy, and as always, thanks for

Navigating the Farmer’s Market / Top Finds for June

What did you gather today at your local market? Was it what you had planned? Contrary to what one might think, heading to the farmer’s market without a list can actually be quite fun and liberating. Why? Because it allows you the opportunity to purchase only what is in season where you live and then get your creative juices flowing, based on what you’ve found, once you’re back in the comfort of your own kitchen (or backyard fire pit!). And with summer at our doorstep, even those who live in areas without abundant year-round produce, can turn to the very
