Paleo Diet, have you heard about it yet? Some refer to it as the “Caveman Diet”.
A gal in my Husbands office is following it, she was explaining all about it a get together last month.
What I found interesting were the similarities to eating gluten free.
Both need to have most food choices from the source. Not processed or manufactured.
So, a lot a fresh vegetables, fruits, poultry and meats, seafood, nuts and seeds.
We Celiacs add legumes, rice, potatoes, and gluten free pasta. Paleo’s don’t.
Wow, I can’t imagine life without rice, potatoes or pasta!
I wonder if they can eat Quinoa, it’s a seed, not a grain……
Here is a pizza that falls in that Paleo/Gluten free zone, the crust is made from cauliflower!!
Cavemen ate cauliflower?
While it did taste extremely yummy, really ,I am not making that up, it did not taste exactly like regular pizza crust (we Celiac’s are used to things being different).
So if you are doing the whole low-carb, Paleo or Gluten free thing, or just feeling adventurous, this is your baby.
