With the New Year in full swing, people are exploring new diets to help with the resolution of losing weight. One diet that has become extremely popular is the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet is a diet based on the types of food presumed to be eaten by earlier humans. It consists mainly of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. It excludes dairy or grain products, as well as processed food. There is no special technique, just the ideal of choosing ingredients as close to nature as possible.General substitutions include swapping almond flour for all-purpose flour, sweet potatoes for white potatoes, coconut or maple for unrefined sugar, and so on. If this is a diet you would like to try, be sure to research it and learn more. Below are some yummy Paleo recipes to get you started on your new journey.
