I’m Craving Something Sweet. Are There any Tasty Paleo Desserts?

paleo desserts

One of the cardinal rules of the paleo diet is that sugar is a major NO-NO. This one rule scares off most people from the paleo diet.“How in the world am I to live without sugar?”… “Whaaat! No sugar??? You must be crazy!”

That’s generally how most people will react. Telling them that they are sweet enough and sugar is not a necessity is going to put you in mortal danger.

The reason most people balk at the idea of cutting out sugar is because they have no idea of what the alternatives are. They only see the major sacrifices that they will be making. The ice-creams, cookies, candies, cocktails, etc. have all become out of reach. Comfort foods that they were used to since young are not allowed.

Don’t panic!

As a paleo dieter, you do have options. There are many paleo recipe books that are focused on creating yummy but healthy desserts while abiding by the core paleo concepts.

Almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil and many natural ingredients are used to make brownies, shakes, smoothies, ice-creams, etc. In fact, many fruit juices when frozen on a stick will be just as good as any commercial sherbet that you may purchase. The difference is that on a paleo diet, your sherbet will be made out of real fruit juice and not some chemical concoction that was frozen and created to simulate real fruit flavors.

Cakes, brownies, cookies, ice-creams and most comfort foods can be made while on the paleo diet. You just need to know what ingredients to use to substitute to comply with the paleo requirements. In order to do this, it will be necessary to do some research and test out the recipes.

It may take some time for you to get the hang of it but once you can whip up tasty desserts paleo style, you’ll never need to worry about reneging on your paleo diet simply because your sweet tooth is demanding. For many people, just cutting and keeping some strawberries or pineapples in the fridge serves as a dessert.

They just need to eat something sweet. Initially, you may think, “But that’s so boring!” It may be boring… but obesity and inflammation is not exciting either. These are the consequences of eating commercially produced desserts and junk food.

It cannot be argued that even though paleo desserts may be sweet and yummy, it may take a while for the average person to adapt to paleo desserts. This is perfectly natural and understandable. Depending on when you made the switch to paleo, you would probably have been eating sugary stuff for years.

It will take time to adapt but if you stay the course and make paleo desserts to combat your cravings, within a space of weeks or a month, you will find that your cravings diminish to the point where you don’t even miss sugary snacks.

Once you have reached this point, you will truly love the paleo desserts and your compliance with the paleo diet will be very high because you have crossed the most difficult hump and conquered your sugar cravings.

Congrats on the job well done. You would have achieved something that thousands of people have failed at. This sense of achievement will be sweeter than any dessert you could ever buy.

Are All Fats Beneficial in the Paleo Diet?

Are All Fats Beneficial in the Paleo Diet?

The first point to note is that not all fats are created equal. The second point worth remembering is that you do not get fat by eating fat. In fact, you must consume the right fats for good health. Fats make you feel happy and provide a host of benefits such as reducing cancer risk, boosting you immune system and even helping you lose weight.

Yup! You need to eat fat to lose fat… but you must eat the right fats.

The problem these days is that most people are consuming unhealthy fats that come from hydrogenated oils. Many people are unaware of how unhealthy the vegetable oils they consume are. The oils are marketed as being healthy and made out of natural foods such as soy, corn, etc.

In reality, oils that have been refined or hydrogenated are extremely bad for the human body and cause many health related problems.

The paleo diet uses oils in their natural state. The oils are not bleached or subjected to chemical processes that make them harmful. The fats used in the paleo diet are not only safe but are extremely beneficial to the body.

Since the diet is heavy in meat, you will get a good portion of animal fats in your diet. Paleo dieters are encouraged to get grass-fed meats because even the food the commercial companies feed their livestock is detrimental. Eating grass-fed meats will ensure that no ill-effects are passed down to you.

Animal fats are perfectly fine. Our ancestors ate lots of meat and our bodies have evolved over time to eat meat and handle animal fat. Rest assured that your cholesterol level is not going to skyrocket. Studies have proven that dietary cholesterol does not cause high cholesterol in humans.

Do you want to know what causes high cholesterol levels in human beings?

Hydrogenated oils sold on supermarket shelves. Unhealthy fats found in cookies, junk food, fast food, etc. These are what cause unhealthy cholesterol levels. Worry not! Since the paleo diet does not allow consumption of these awful items, you’re safe.

Coconut oil is the most preferred oil in the paleo diet. Just like how olive oil is a staple in the Mediterranean diet, coconut oil is the staple oil in the paleo diet. It contains over 90% saturated fat and every bit is good for you. Coconut oil is stable at room temperature and can be used for cooking. It contains lauric acid which is easily digested and helps boost your immune system.

Another healthy fat that is seen in the paleo diet is olive oil. This is a very healthy oil and helps to balance the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body. This will lubricate your joints and prevent inflammation in the body.

Butter and ghee are other fats that are also used to prepare paleo dishes. Many paleo dieters scramble their eggs in the morning with melted butter. Butter is not a strictly paleo ingredient but it does have many health benefits. So, if you’re willing to be a little lax, you can include butter as part of your diet. It does have many benefits.

These are just some of the fats in the paleo diet. There are other fats such as avocado oil, etc. The point you should take away from this article is that the fats in the paleo diet are perfectly healthy.

You should be more concerned with the normal food that is being sold commercially. These are the biggest culprits for most of society’s health issues these days. Avoid these unhealthy products and go paleo. It truly is life-changing.

 

Is the Paleo Lifestyle Sustainable?

Is the Paleo Lifestyle Sustainable?

The paleo lifestyle often refers to adopting a paleo diet for life. This is often referred to as the ‘cavemen’ diet because it is how our early ancestors ate and lived.

Several questions will come to people’s minds when they first hear of the paleo diet. Is it healthy? Is it expensive? Why do I have to sacrifice my favorite foods? Is it uncivilized?

All these questions are often based on misconceptions and false notions. The paleo diet though slightly restrictive is perfectly healthy and sustainable. As with anything that needs to become a habit, it will take some time to adapt to the paleo diet and make it a way of life.

Most diets are not sustainable in the long run. They are either too low in calories, based on false information or just too restrictive and not feasible for a long term solution.

The paleo diet recommends a diet rich in meat, eggs and healthy fats. The meat and eggs are best if they are organic. Grains, sugar and refined or processed foods are strictly not allowed. This is where most people face the biggest hurdle.

Giving up their favorite foods such as chocolates, cakes, pastries, ice-creams, etc. is such a sacrifice. Is it even worth it? This is a question every individual will need to answer for themselves. There are paleo recipes to make desserts, smoothies and even ice-creams. So, it’s not that bad but of course, you’ll have to forget the Dunkin Donuts.

You’ll have to decide if you want good health and a lean, fit body. The good thing about the paleo diet is that after you have been on it for 3 months, your cravings for sweet foods will diminish greatly. A lot of your past cravings will not be there anymore. You will not feel the need to raid the refrigerator at night and binge eat.

When the body has all the nutrients it needs, it doesn’t have sudden cravings. So, in the long run, it will not seem like a sacrifice at all.
The paleo diet is not more expensive than a normal diet. You are just substituting foods. In fact, since the paleo diet often recommends that you buy your meats and fresh foods in bulk, often there will be cost savings. You are also encouraged to cook for yourself.

That means overall, you will be saving money. Any savvy paleo dieter will be able to adroitly get better bargains from his local meat suppliers. The only investment you will have to make is on a freezer to store your meats. This, however, is a one-time investment that will last for years.

So, to summarize, the paleo diet is actually cheaper than the standard American diet. Not to mention, you will save on medical costs since you will be less susceptible to the normal health issues that affect most people on a poor diet.

The paleo diet is definitely sustainable in the long run. You will benefit from it greatly. The only difficulty is in the beginning when you are first getting used to it. Once you cross the hump, it will be smooth sailing the rest of the way and you’ll realize that the paleo lifestyle is an excellent way to live.

 

 

How Beneficial is Paleo for my Skin, Hair and Nails?

 

Initially, when the paleo diet trend started, it was a hit amongst the men. Women generally avoided it because it all seemed very masculine and most women did not like the idea of being associated with cavemen.

However, the surge in popularity of the paleo diet saw it get more coverage in the mainstream media which then went on to highlight the benefits of the diet and make it look like the cure to our unhealthy, decadent eating habits.

More and more companies jumped on board and released an avalanche of paleo products to cater to this fanatic crowd. The moment commercial enterprises lay their finger on anything, one can expect slick marketing and a fashion trend. Paleo was not spared.

whole food paleo diet

More and more women started adopting the diet and seeing the benefits. One of the main benefits of the paleo diet that many women report is that it is very beneficial to their hair, nails and skin. Most men wouldn’t be caught dead mentioning these benefits even though they apply to males too. Cavemen with nice hair, nails and skin are not their idea of masculine.

The skin, hair and nails reflect our nutrient intake and display any abnormalities in our body extremely fast. That’s why your hair drops out, skin gets sallow and your nails change color if you’re afflicted with any illness. Even though these parts are not essential to our survival, they are excellent indicators of our health.

People who go on a paleo diet will be consuming nutrient dense foods such as eggs, nuts, meat, etc. These foods are rich in zinc and iron which are extremely important for nail and hair strength. With sufficient nutrients, your hair and nails will be strong, thick and have the glow of good health.

The foods recommended in the paleo diet are often rich in biotin which is another foundational nutrient for good hair, nail and skin health. The paleo diet contains more nutrients than the usual junk food that the average person eats which is just loaded with enough additives and unknown chemicals that may probably turn a white rat into green.

Modern society has seen a rise in the number of skin maladies. This is a direct result of bad food choices and harmful substances in our foods that we are not aware of. Leaky gut syndrome, inflammation and other nutrient deficiencies affect our immune system and make our skin susceptible to skin problems.

The point to note is that the body works synergistically. It works as a whole. Everything affects everything else. If your gut is having problems, it will be reflected in the skin. Your diet more than anything else is the deciding factor in how healthy you will be.

Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down. It is a record of your eating habits.

When you go on a paleo diet, you will eliminate sugar, processed foods, artificial additives and hydrogenated oils. All these substances are harmful and cause inflammation in the human body. In fact, inflammation in the body leads to a whole host of health problems that can be avoided if people were only aware that their bodies were inflamed.

When you go on a paleo diet and stop consuming these toxins, your skin will not be assaulted by the chemicals in these harmful foods. Your skin will be more supple and healthy.

Since the paleo diet is mostly comprised of wholesome foods and you are encouraged to have a balanced diet of vegetables and fruit, you will have adequate intake of fiber, vitamins and minerals. All these are crucial to gut health.

If you have a healthy gut, most problems can be avoided. You will most probably be in the pink of health. Your skin, hair and nails will be healthy because your body has all the nutrients it needs. Consuming empty nutrient foods such as a soda means that the body will leech away essential nutrients from the skin and bones just to process these foods that are really of no use to the body.

Your skin, nails and bones will definitely benefit from the paleo diet. You will look younger and feel younger. You will see your energy levels returning and little allergies and problems that may have seemed persistent and unexplained will disappear just as mysteriously. That is the power of the paleo diet.
