The Paleo diet is often referred to as the caveman diet. Its pretty simple, the basis of the paleo diet is to turn back the clock and imitate the diet of our ancestors. Adopting a paleo lifestyle can feel challenging at times; it may often feel that as you look through the grocery store aisles, previously favorite foods are now off limits (You know Chips, pasta, Grains). In fact, many of the Western diet staples may need to be left out of your paleo shopping list leaving you confused about just what exactly you can indulge in on a paleo diet.
Learning How to Shop Paleo
Learning how to shop for a paleo based diet can take a bit of searching around and working out. Different grocery stores will often carry different products. With time, you will learn which places carry for favorite paleo items and where you can get the best paleo bargains and deals. Finding paleo products doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to shop in the all organic, upscale, overpriced swanky stores, however. Big name chains, like Costco or Woolworth also have an excellent variety of paleo friendly foods. [click to continue…]

For generations many people have wondered, that what was it that kept our ancestors so strong and fit, was it the lifestyle they led or the way they consumed their food? And the correct answer is what they had in their diet.
What we eat is what we are, and this holds especially true in terms of the Paleo diet. [click to continue…]
