TASTY TUESDAY IS BACK and we’re going Paleo :)

After our recent posts on the Paleo Diet and the launch of our new Going Paleo Starter Kit this month, I wanted share some recipes to show you just how yummy this lifestyle can be. Since I love Mexican food (to a fault, to be honest), I thought I’d share this recipe from DrizzleandDip.com.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:

  • 400g of skinless chicken breast cut into fairly thin strips
  • splash of olive oil to fry these in
  • 1 x red onion finely sliced
  • 1 x 400g tin of tomatoes (whole or chopped)
  • 1 T of finely chopped chipotle in adobo sauce (or substitute with finely chopped pickled jalapeno chillis and a pinch of dried chilli flakes)
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • pinch of brown sugar and salt and pepper to season
  • lettuce leaves to make your tacos (I like to use butter lettuce or baby gem lettuce)
  • fresh coriander leaves
  • sliced pickled jalapeno chillies
  • slices of avocado or make guacamole
  • fresh tomatoes and slices of spring onion to make a rustic salsa – as much as you need. I used about 2 cups of quartered rosa / cherry tomatoes and sliced red spring onions / scallions. I tossed these together with lots of salt and pepper.
  • lime wedges to spritz

What is the Paleo Diet and Why is It Good for Me?

#1 – What is the Paleo Diet?

Your ancestors who lived in the Paleolithic era roamed the earth about 15,000 years ago. One of the most important strides humans made at this time was the development of the very first stone tools. Obviously, those human beings had a drastically different diet than the unhealthy Standard American Diet (SAD) eaten by most modern-day societies.

They only ate natural foods.

They ate whatever they could get their hands on, which predominantly meant fish, meat, seeds, vegetables and some occasional fruits. There was no pollution in the air. There were no impurities and garbage being pumped into natural water supplies. The animals and plants during the Paleolithic era were natural products.

They made up the diet of humans, and other carnivores living at that time.

Because of this, your cave dwelling predecessors were extremely healthy, both physically and mentally. Since the way that your body processes foods, and the way it works internally and externally, has not changed significantly since the Paleolithic era, adhering to that type of diet can offer you the same wonderful health rewards.

How can your health benefit from a Stone Age dietary approach? Let’s take a look.

#2 Health Benefits of a Paleo Lifestyle

image002Guess what? You may have a much more comfortable living environment then your paleo ancestors did, but they were much healthier than you are. Did you know that high blood pressure, heart diseases, diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity simply did not exist when humans were living in caves 15,000 years ago?

Those difficult, chronic, debilitating and sometimes deadly health conditions are a gift of modern times. This began in Europe when drought forced human beings to start eating wheat. Wheat was combined with water, which became the precursor for what we call bread today.

This eventually led to modern day agriculture and food manufacturing processes. Unfortunately, those food development procedures have led to the creation of refined sugar, simple carbohydrates, trans fats, MSG, table salt, artificial additives and flavors, steroids, preservatives and other unhealthy food ingredients.

Those nutrition nightmares were created so that food could last longer on grocery store shelves. Many of those components, like sugar and salt, are extremely addictive. So human beings end up eating processed food which has much of its nutrients removed, causes unhealthy addictions, and leads to a long list of diseases and illnesses.

A move back to smart eating, enjoying fish, vegetables, meat, nuts, whole foods and some fruits, is what the paleo lifestyle is all about.

The benefits include …

• You will also find that your mental functioning is sharp and clear.
• If you have tried to quit smoking before and failed, you will discover, like other paleo converts, that it is easier to give up tobacco on this diet plan.
• You will experience plenty of healthy energy, and better sleep patterns.
• You also develop stronger, healthier looking skin and hair, and more muscle mass as well.

For those of you who have fought and lost the “Battle of the Bulge” for years, you will also notice immediate and lasting weight loss, helping you regulate a healthy body weight for your size and age (more on that weight loss benefit later).

“I have now lost 51 pounds and 42 inches since May thanks to Skinny Fiber!!! This has been a life changing journey for me! In May I went to a casting call for The Biggest Loser and thought that that was my destiny. Something in me was calling me to try out for the show! I had watched it from the beginning and I thought it would fix all the problems in my life! I was devastated when they did not pick me! I then made a life changing decision! I decided that instead of sitting on my butt and getting fatter that I was gonna get up and do something about the mess that I had my life and my body in! I CHOSE to work on ME! I CHOSE to CHANGE! We all can do it, it is a CHOICE and only YOU can do it for yourself! NO one else can do it for you or wish it for you! [Read more…]

Since being on Skinny Fiber I have lost 28lbs! I’m so proud of myself and my self confidence has gotten a lot better!” – Jodi

Wow! Look at Jenny-Lyn! She looks AMAZING! This is her testimonial from 7/26/13 about her use of Skinny Fiber…

Today is my 4 month!!! 140lbs and a size 15 to 118 and a size 4!!!!! I started my skinny fiber on March 26th. I was so hesitant to take a before photo, but as you can by April 2nd I was so happy I did. I could not believe the difference in just a few days! I never was a pop drinker so that was one habit I didn’t have to break! I just finished nursing school and never allowed myself to eat while in class because I would get extremely bloated, not to mention I would get extremely tired right after….so I got in an awful habit of not eating at all during the day, I would come home and do my homework and have the biggest binge and go right to bed. Well not anymore! Since I have been on skinny fiber, I have completely lost the bloat and I am eating regular meals, just much less! I am more energized than I have been in a real long time, and I have lost a total of 14lbs since my start date! I can’t wait to do another photo when its been a month!!!!!” – Jenny Lyn

This is Crystal’s journey, in her own words…

“Hi. I’m Crystal. I’m 33 years old. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia two years ago but have struggled with symptoms for years. I have always been a big girl. Lost some after having my two kids but always put it back on. I struggled daily with my self image for years. I started Skinny Fiber May 11 of this year. I weighed 205 and was in a tight 16. I now weigh as of today 183 and in a size 12 and some 10s. I am completely off my fibro medicines and only occasionally have to take a pain pill. I have also suffered with severe manic depression and anxiety and was diagnosed as being bipolar when I was 22. I am also off all those medicines! Skinny Fiber has totally changed my life! I like what I see in the mirror now and am so much happier. I have more energy and just feel great!! I can’t wait to see what else Skinny Fiber does for me!” – Crystal

“My journey…I ran across Skinny Fiber by accident one day and ignored the ad.I had tried so many weight loss things in the past that did not work and one of the RX weight loss pills I took actually caused heart damage!So,I swore I would never try another one again.I kept thinking about it over and over and that little voice in my head kept telling me to try” one more”. I finally gave in and ordered Skinny fiber.It had a money back guarantee so I would not be out any money if it didn’t work.I started it on September 1st…..within the first week I could really tell a difference in the way I felt! No jittery feelings,it gave me energy without making me hyper or making my heart race!

I was so excited to learn that I lost 12 pounds and went from a 12/14 to an 8 in my jeans after the first bottle. I felt a huge difference,I was not so depressed,my IBS was not there anymore and I was able to get off my blood pressure meds ( TOPROL). [Read more…]
