People who switch to a Paleo diet and lifestyle do not have to sacrifice eating many of their favorite foods. It can be difficult to adjust to the change of eating healthier, avoiding caffeine, and exercising regularly even though the health benefits are plentiful. A Paleo diet does not include cereal grains, gluten, soy, dairy, refined sugar, and processed foods, among other foods. At first glance, that list excludes many of the sweet and savory breads that people have enjoyed for most of their lives. Those treats can be added to the diet by modifying some of the ingredients, and substituting others.
People who are interested in getting an idea of what is possible to enjoy, while sticking to the diet, can use this link to find bread recipes, as well as recipes for donuts, pancakes, ice cream, and a multitude of other favorites. One article on the blog includes twenty-five grain and wheat-free Paleo bread recipes that includes coconut flour bread, savory bread, cinnamon raisin bread, diner rolls, lemon glazed poppy seed bread, sourdough, and sandwich bread, just to name a few. These treats are easy to make, delicious, and much healthier than the over-processed counterparts.
In addition to great recipes and substitute ingredients, the blog contains printable resources, such as a twenty-one day meal plan to help people get started; shopping lists for help navigating the grocery store; and a list of essential tools for the kitchen. There are articles regarding how to follow the diet at restaurants and while traveling, how to stick to a budget, and how to resist pressure from family and friends to resort to old eating habits. A question and answer section on the site can be helpful to people practicing the lifestyle as well.
Access to a free Paleo for Beginners Guide is available with an email address. It is not easy to alter eating habits, especially when schedules are hectic, and advertising encourages the drive-through rather than cooking at home. The guide explains the concept of eating more like ancient people did. It includes the health benefits of eating natural and unprocessed foods, as well as ways to adapt to the diet and lifestyle.
