Priming for Paleo

 

Check out this cool post over at Health Perch

I get so many questions from readers who are keen to adopt a Paleo-style diet in order to optimize fertility, stay healthy during pregnancy and just increase their own health and wellness. SO AWESOME!

Many readers are confused about different ideas and opinions regarding what the Paleo diet includes. This is totally understandable!  The 'google-machine' can be so overwhelming!  I came across this great summary that helps folks who are new to ancestral eating.

All of these awesome nutrient dense foods are a part of a standard Paleo diet

This post is a cool illustrated piece that features nutritional guidelines, called “Choose My Plate”, and offers both a typical diet and a Paleo diet illustration. Great for visual learners :) Additionally,  it offers a number of easy to understand tips and lists to help you understand the basics of the Paleo diet. 

All the cool kids have contributed to this great summary and they include:  Dr. Loren Cordain, Neely Quinn of PaleoPlan, Melissa Hartwig of Whole9, and Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites - on what it means to really "go Paleo." They all discuss why a Paleo diet is so important and their own special tricks for managing cravings. 

It's pretty rad and worth checking out!

I hope you enjoy these friendly tips from these awesome folks.
