Oysters on the Half Shell

Those fortunate to live near an ocean, will most likely be able to buy fresh oysters at local seafood markets.   With a little shopping around, most people living inland are able to purchase these delicacies pretty easily as well.  Even if the oysters you source are frozen, this recipe proves to be a great way to enjoy this nutrient packed treat.  Close your eyes and you can almost hear the waves crashing on the beach!   Ingredients: 6 large fresh raw oysters on the half shell Juice from one fresh lemon 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 2 garlic cloves pressed

Adding Eggs to Your Paleo Diet

Paleo Recipes: Adding Eggs to your Paleo Diet Eggs have become something of a lighthearted joke among healthy eating aficionados and science journalists alike: Are eggs supposed to be good for you or bad for you? The confusing back-and-forth debate on eggs in a healthy diet is emblematic of how difficult it can be to parse whether your meals are helping or harming you in the long run. We decided it was as good a time as any to break down some of the facts surrounding eggs: why they used to be vilified, what their actual health benefits are, and

The Paleo Diet October Digest – Don’t Take the Oils and Dressings for Granted

Eating Paleo takes practice and not just a little bit of dedication and self-control. It’s tough to tell yourself to keep walking as you pass the snack aisle or say “no thank you” when you’re out with friends and they want to share their piece of triple layer chocolate cake with you. So, when you opt instead for the fresh salmon with a vegetable salad, don’t let all that dedication go unrewarded by ignoring the little things; like what you cook your salmon in or what you put on that salad. Picking Paleo foods for the main dish and even

The Paleo Diet August Digest – Reducing Inflammation

The number of “fad” approaches promising you perfect health has been mounting over the decades – stop eating fat, cut cholesterol, take anti-oxidants, pop a multi-vitamin – and both food companies and the media have jumped on all of them. While the popular fad has changed as frequently as fashion styles, there has been a consistent commonality – they all offer over-simplified explanations for chronic disease and how you can get your high school body back. Fueled by a food and supplement industry all too happy to claim, “eat our fat-free product” or “take our supplement and you will be

The Paleo Diet August Digest – Promoting Health with a Paleo Diet

There is one all-encompassing and inescapable reason to adopt a Paleo Diet lifestyle – improved health. Early critics of the diet said there were no studies to back those claims. But in recent years, a growing body of new research has appeared showing better health in people of different ages, sex, and race. The evidence is mounting. This month, our writers addressed just a few items on the growing list of benefits of the Paleo Diet. A list that Jane Dizon at least partially summarized in her monthly infographic. Our feature article is a continuation of Dr. Cordain’s extensive research

The Paleo Diet July Digest – A Few Ways to Find Paleo Foods

Eating a healthy Paleo Diet is not always easy. It’s certainly a lot simpler in our modern world to walk around the corner and buy a Big Mac or a slice of pizza, than to find a fresh-cooked unsalted salmon fillet and asparagus. That’s particularly true in the summer when many of us are taking the family on a plane or visiting cottage country knowing we’ll be without a kitchen and the local farmer’s market we’ve come to trust. Finding Paleo-friendly foods can become a challenge. But it’s still worth the effort. Our new posts for July were all about
