It seems like, no matter where you look, lifestyle-related diseases are on the rise. Obesity rates are alarmingly high and continue to rise. Related diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and gastrointestinal diseases also continue to be prevalent, even though modern medicine is as advanced as it has ever been.
A significant contributing factor to these problems is the fact that the modern American diet is chock-full of simple carbohydrates. It seems like our bodies have “forgotten” how to burn fat.
There are a million different diets out there that try to address these problems. Many of them are definitely “fad diets” – here for a year or two then they’re gone, never to be heard of again.
You may be asking yourself – can Paleo be a solution to some of these problems? Or is it one of those fad diets? After all, it’s not like it’s been around for hundreds of years.
Well, the Paleo diet got its name from how our ancestors used to eat. A combining form meaning “old” or “ancient,” especially about former geological periods.
The Paleo diet looks back to when man hunted and gathered, instead of planting crops of carbohydrates (like wheat, corn, etc.). Back then, the typical diet consisted of far more fats and proteins – long-burning fuels that our bodies can thrive on.
The Number of Benefits That Come from Filling Your Diet with More Fats and Proteins is Incredible.
- More natural, faster weight loss
- Lowering toxin levels in your body
- Reduced risk of lifestyle-related diseases
- Increased energy, and more!
So, are you tired of fad diets that leave you without results? Paleo has been tried, tested, and shown to be useful for thousands of years. And today, we’re giving you 111 mouth-watering Paleo recipes for paleo breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time to help you fuel your body and achieve your fitness goals.
1)Granola Bars (Grain-free)
Let me begin by saying that granola bar is a perfect grab-and-go snack! But do you know that you can easily make these bars at home? If you are allergic to almonds, granola bars are an ideal fit for you because they are almond-free.
Granola bars make it to the list of favorite snacks that every fitness enthusiast wants to try.
When combined with various seeds and nuts, granola bars offer a variety of flavor, health and crunch benefits. The good thing is that you can replace whichever seeds and nuts you like. For instance, if you are allergic to all kinds of nuts, then you can try to use sunflower and pepitas seeds. I recommend cherries because they add both a sour and sweet taste to the bars.
2) Ham and Sweet Potato Egg Muffins
Egg muffins make a nutritious and yummy breakfast, just like the personal-sized frittatas, a standard Italian dish that crosses between a crustless quiche and an omelet. I included a smoked ham to increase my protein intake and a lot of vegetables to obtain a balanced breakfast. You can use various kinds of sweet potatoes, but I chose Japanese potatoes because they have high levels of starch. Surprisingly, you only need around ten minutes to prepare this healthy breakfast recipe.
3) Broccoli Casserole
If you want to have a creamy breakfast, then you need to try out this broccoli casserole breakfast recipe. The creamy texture of broccoli casserole is due to the addition of coconut milk to the mixture that contains other ingredients like broccoli, yellow onion, minced garlic, slices of white mushrooms amongst others.
4) Paleo Almond Butter Chocolate Fudge
Hey, the Christmas season is always right around the corner, and we need to give gifts to our family and friends. We want our colleagues and friends to shed weight this season, Christmas fudge will do the trick. This recipe is a game changer to your weight loss goals.
5) Pesto Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato
I love to cook sweet potatoes! This recipe is perfect for people who don’t have a lot of time to prepare meals at their disposal because of their busy schedules. It is a great dinner recipe that will take less time to cook. You can put the sweet potato in your microwave while the chicken is on your stove. After baking, you can add some veggies to make your dinner more delicious and nutritious.
