Paleo and Plant Based recipes

Paleo and Plant Based, these two kinds of diet have been gaining traction lately, thanks to movies like Forks Over Knives and books like Practical Paleo and Eat to Live.

What is the Paleo Diet?

It’s essentially all about eating the foods that have been available to humans for most of our evolutionary history: meats raised on their natural forage, seafood, eggs, fibrous vegetables and greens, nuts and seeds, healthy fats and some fruit — all things that would have been recognizable as food to our most primitive ancestors. It’s about “focusing your choices on
real, whole foods that are more nutritionally dense and less detrimental to your health,”     -Cain Credicott.

Challenges

ñ Locating sources of high-quality and sustainably raised meat, fish and vegetables takes legwork.
ñ Real food comes with a price tag: Grass-fed, wild and organic foods can be more expensive, though you can learn to become a savvy shopper.
ñ Paleo or vegetarian: pick one. It’s nearly impossible to be both.
ñ Time commitment: You have to be willing to cook — and plan ahead. It’s hard to grab something on the go or pop open a can when you’re avoiding grains and beans, and restaurant dining can be restrictive.
