WHY I LOVE AND HATE THE PALEO DIET

why-I-love-hate-the-paleo-diet

Naz’s Note: Before I start this post I’d like to clarify something. This post is about the nutrition part of paleo and not the entire paleo lifestyle in general which is why I used the term “the paleo diet” in the title of this post. 

That damn paleo diet… IT’S SO HOT RIGHT NOW!

That’s what I used to think. Today not so much. [Read more…]

This delicious Warm “Grain” Chicken Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash and Greens recipe comes from the AMAZING new cookbook ‘Nourish: The Paleo Healing Book’ by the lovely Rachael, founder of the awesome blog Meatified

Changing the way you eat can be hard at first, especially if you have to follow a stricter protocol like AIP (Autoimmune Paleo) for a period of time, that’s where The Nourish Cookbook can help you! Nourish is filled with over 120 AIP friendly recipes (you can see the full recipe list here) that have been made with flavour and nutrient density in mind, which means that you no longer have to ask the question of “what can I eat?” because this book is the answer to that question!

Rachael has taken the guess work out of the AIP protocol and created a book filled with flavourful recipes that will leave you feeling satisfied… you’ll be so happy with what you CAN eat that you’ll forget about what you CAN’T eat! To order this grew new cookbook click here. 

By the way I made this Warm “Grain” Chicken Salad  for Joe and I the other night and it was delicious! I thought it was so clever of Rach to come up with this recipe for those who can’t grains like white rice or for those who may not like the texture of cauliflower “rice”.

I’ll give it over to Rach now to tell you more about this delicious recipe she created (make sure you read to the end to enter to win yourself a copy of Nourish!)… [Read more…]

3 MINUTE HOMEMADE MAYO

Mayonnaise is probably one of my favourite condiments but when I switched to eating real food I stopped eating mayo and basically avoided it like the plague! Why? Because whenever I went in search of mayo in the supermarket/grocery store all I ever found were jars of mayo that had an ingredient list the length of my arm that were not so great TERRIBLE! So I just stopped eating it. As you may be aware nearly all the mayo you find at the store is made with some kind of vegetable oil, like canola oil and even if a particular jar of mayo boasts on the front that it’s made with olive oil well sadly it’s again usually blended with some kind of vegetable oil as well.
