Let’s Go Paleo!

So, I’m bored.

Time for a summer fad diet!!!

Why not go Paleo?

Paleo is short for paleolithic which refers to the hunter/gatherer age of humans.  It operates off the idea that evolution has not prepared the human body for the types of food that make up a lot of our diet and that if we eat like our ancestors, we will be stronger and more efficient and skinnier and blah blah blah.

So what do you eat?:

Think caveman! Meat, fish, eggs, fruits, nuts, any veggies that you can eat raw (though you don’t have to)

What do you avoid?

Processed sugars, starches, grains, breads, dairy products, legumes

So we will minimize the amount of the bad things and focus on lots of the good things (oh no! fruits and veggies!)  So today’s menu:

Breakfast – eggs, turkey, cantelope, almonds with dried cranberries and blueberries

Lunch – Salads with spinach, carrots, ham, and turkey

Dinner – grilled chicken with pineapple, red pepper, and brown rice.

Rice being the only baddy in that bunch.

Tomorrow Evelyn and I are going to work out like cavemen…which consists of running like we are being chased by a T-Rex…cuz humans and T-Rexes lived during the same period of time (right young earth creationists?)
