Under Paleo Investigation: Paleo Bread, Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, Psyllium Fiber, and Other Foods Scrutinized

Under Paleo Investigation: Paleo Bread, Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, Psyllium Fiber, and Other Foods Scrutinized

Mark’s Daily Apple has some wonderful posts about items that are questionable in a pure paleo diet.  the paleo diet is also known as the “caveman diet” but we’re not cavemen.  we have evolved since then so our diet should evolve as well.  because of that, i’m not opposed to eating stuff that aren’t paleo and don’t pose as a threat to my healthy being. also there are assumptions and claims as to what items are primal but with some research, we find that they’re not actually primal or vice versa

watch out for more of these posts..they are very enlightening!

during my weight loss journey, i avoided bacon and all high fat foods for two years because people convinced me that i need to keep a low fat diet. i’ve discovered the paleo diet where bacon is good and good for you so i’m never letting it go! i cook bacon everyday…literally. 🙂

click on the delicious bacon to read an interesting story about bacon and nitrates and nitrites and everything “bad” about bacon.
