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

Recipe: Bring on the Produce!

At The Paleo Diet, we look forward to August when our local farmer’s markets are stocked with a plentiful array of fresh-picked produce. We love visiting the various vendors to pick up a bounty of heirloom tomatoes, squash, onions, peppers, lettuce, spinach, peaches, strawberries, melons, and just about anything that grows in our neck of the woods. Right through October, there is little need to visit our local grocery chain, as you can’t beat the freshness of our locally sourced foods. Wherever you reside, give your local growers your support and stock up on some delicious Paleo Diet foods. Give

Paleo Waffles with Coconut

This delicious waffle recipe is pretty darn “allergy proof” unless you have issues with eggs. It is void of any gluten, grains, nuts and of course dairy. These paleo waffles with coconut still taste just like the real deal according to my guest Rossy of Primal Yum! Rossy says her use of bananas in this paleo recipe makes them extremely light and soft, while the coconut makes them fluffy and fragrant. Who wouldn’t love this combination? Man oh man, makes me hungry just reading that alone.

When making a recipe like this it affirms that a healthy recipe can also be very tasty and satisfying! Thank you again Rossy as you are truly a kitchen genius.

Two New Studies Show the Many Potential Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of the Paleo Diet

The increased abdominal fat that many women develop after menopause due to hormonal changes and the skin disorder psoriasis are divergent health concerns that would seem to have little in common. But two recently published studies found a common ground – chronic inflammation. More importantly, the anti-inflammatory properties of the Paleo Diet were found to improve both [1, 2]. After menopause, women have a tendency to “redistribute” fat around the abdomen which increases the risk for metabolic disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease [3, 4]. In the first study, which was published in Obesity, researchers placed 70 obese postmenopausal

Bill Nye – The Science Guy?

As a fellow Cornellian, I’ve had a long-standing admiration for Bill Nye The Science Guy. Alright, I admit that I was a fan-boy. I was pretty excited when Nye returned to Cornell during my time there, to take a guest professor post. Here was a scientist who was charismatic, made science exciting for the masses, and had the “science chops” to teach at the Cornell science department. So, I was all too disappointed when I watched Bill Nye take on the Paleo Diet in his new Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World. Don’t get me wrong; I wasn’t disappointed

Physiological Mechanisms: Underlying High Salt Diets and Cancer

Introduction: I recently received a question from Bill, “I would also like to know what the purported mechanism for low sodium and low cancer is?” Let me first preface this question with my original blog that that precipitated the question.  Dr. Jansson sent me in his unpublished book manuscript on May 10, 1997 (Found here: http://thepaleodiet.com/a-rare-and-never-before-published-book-chapter-concerning-salt-and-cancer/). Accordingly, the information in his book is now more than 20 years old and unfortunately, Dr. Jansson died 23 May 1998.  Dr. Jansson’s book runs about 300 pages in length, is hand typed, double spaced, and contains the following 10 Chapters:   Background to

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? But wait one moment… is bacon really a food that can be part of an authentic Paleo approach? Without a doubt; so long as it is properly sourced,  the cleanest options are chosen and it’s something we include as a once in a while food versus other protein / fat options like wild salmon which can be eaten more

Paleo Ketchup

Kids love ketchup. Of course many of them do as ketchup is loaded with sugar or corn syrup. I dislike most they are selling in stores excluding the various paleo friendly on-line stores offering healthier versions of paleo ketchup. You cannot go wrong making fresh homemade ketchup in your very own kitchen from scratch. Of course, it’s even better if it is an easy recipe like the one below. Now that’s my go-word, “easy”!

Now is the time for barbecue, sitting by the pool and all the outdoor fun that comes with summer time in the USA. We also find ourselves nibbling and dipping and again nibbling and dipping, and of course some people more than other are drinking. To offer or bring healthy options to the table makes for a much more comfortable belly, better blood sugar and let’s not forget to mention a much easier time the following day. There is just nothing quite as bad as waking to a toxic overload. I hate that and so I do not like my guests to feel that way either.

Paleo Ketchup 2

I have friends that love to eat ketchup with their eggs and ham, or as a side with their breakfast. MY grandson is a French-fry addict and there is nothing better than dipping away as far as he is concerned. There is NO way I want him to have Heinz ketchup, and lucky for us he is open to substitutions. He loves a little spice too, so this easy recipe comes in handy for all kids.

One of the greatest things about this paleo friendly recipe is that it can be adjusted in case there is a preference for a sweeter or spicier version, or both! The world of spices is at our finger tips and that is the beauty in creating recipes for this exciting season.

The Ultimate Benefits of Going Paleo

A fundamental principle of the Paleo Diet is to go back to the way of our ancestors and depend on all-natural sustenance to survive. Some people are skeptical about the diet, but the outstanding benefits for the people who have tried it are evidence that there is more to it than just a mere change in one’s food choice. It gives our bodies an opportunity to go back to the way they enjoyed food thousands of years ago. The myriad of benefits from the Paleo Diet go beyond just weight loss. It’s more than just skin deep. It provides an

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
