Cajun Paleo Diet? Rolling Back the Hands of Time

Cajun Paleo Diet? What a unique concept. But then, maybe not. When I was a kid growing up on our farm in South Louisiana we never considered for one moment there would come a time when our foods would not be safe to eat or become compromised by modern food processing practices.

The Paleo Diet has become popular among consumers who want a different and safe approach to their daily food consumption, much like the foods we produced back in the mid-1900s on our humble farm. 

I researched the word Paleo and found that the term actually means to go back in time. In this case, an era when foods were pure and untainted by the food industry. We have now become plagued by the manufacture and distribution of "processed" canned goods and other unhealthy add-ins to our food stuff, i.e., excess salts, sugars, preservatives like monosodium glutamate (MSG), potassium benzoate, potassium sorbate, along with sucralose, enriched wheat, artificial coloring, Canola oil, soy, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup... the list goes on and on.

There are many recipes in Real Cajun Cooking--Pure and Simple which fit nicely within the parameters of the Paleo Diet, but you must search for them. I found a couple of exemplary cookbooks which can take us straight away to the preparation of healthy meals and plans which can help us to not only lose weight, but can also add years to our lives.

I promised myself I wouldn't rant about how our food supply keeps evolving into substances that once resembled something which was safe and good to eat, but has now turned into Frankenfood, so I will reserve that discussion and debate for another day.

It is quite disconcerting to hear about the increasing need for folk to adhere to special diets because of intolerance to certain foods like grains, dairy, sugars, nuts, processed canned goods and so on.

Delicious and spicy foods, like the ones in many of our recipes in Real Cajun Cooking--Pure and Simple, are unfortunately out of reach for many of our visitors who have to adhere to special diets because of their dietary intolerance to certain foods.. 

I personally blame much of it on modern technologies which are hell bent on contaminating our food supply on a massive scale, whether we like it or not, through genetic engineering and modifications which are causing many to succumb to the horrible ill effects which it creates.

Therefore, while trying not to stray too far from our main course, (that of offering you fabulous and delicious original Cajun recipes), the publications I mentioned (with plans and guides) demonstrate how we can enjoy the types of food which can be ingested by most people, but especially by those of us who have become intolerant to many modern-day products.

If you need to lose weight you can now join the thousands who have seen amazing changes in their body fat composition after switching to a Paleo lifestyle... all while eating foods they love!

We don’t have to starve ourselves anymore on tiny salads that leave us unsatisfied. A lot of people say they feel more satiated than ever before once they begin eating healthy Paleo meals.

These publications contain mouth-watering recipes guaranteed to satisfy the pallet without sacrificing quality. Each book offers an unconditional 60-day money-back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied. You have nothing to lose. It's worth checking out and will make a great addition to your library. Get yours today. Bon appetite!

TESTIMONIALS

“Phenomenal numbers…”
Thank you…This has been a very positive experience and I learned a lot about healthy alternatives. Mike can’t wait to talk to his Diabetes Educator later this month to see her reaction to his phenomenal numbers. He is motivated to continue even though this was a huge challenge for him. His numbers are the motivating factor. You are doing great things to help people. Thank you thank you.

“I look better than I have in half a decade.”
I’ll say that I’m impressed. I knew that, with the Paleo lifestyle, I would feel better. No question. I simply chose not to do it. Why? I don’t know. It was “inconvenient” and “a diet”. In truth, I didn’t know how to apply it in my day-to-day. Well…problem solved. When given the tools to actually follow through, with detailed instructions, lists, and encouragement, it was not only beneficial to my health but fun and borderline empowering. I feel great, I look better than I have in half a decade – and I’m actually enjoying food.

“Almost all of my digestion issues have disappeared.”
I have been suffering from many issues with my gut for quite some time. It went from being gassy, to bloated, to severe cramping. I had already gone dairy free before doing this challenge. I had tried removing gluten from time to time but working in a restaurant that mainly sells pastries and bread – it becomes its own challenge. But my issues had continued to worsen. By having the recipes to center me I was able to focus my diet and dig in and do the research. It really became the belief system behind the challenge of eating whole clean foods that drove me to stick to it and get past my addictions to “filling” foods. Almost all of my digestion issues have disappeared. I still live a pretty stressful work life so I hope to continue and clean up my gut completely! These recipes will now be a permanent part of my life! Thank you!

“I lost 12 pounds total…”
I was super scared to start the Paleo challenge, but I still started right away on the first day and found it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be! I definitely missed some of the things I was not eating, but honestly it was mind over matter. I really like that I can eat until I am full without feeling guilty about my portion size. I enjoy eating bacon a lot, even though I have never been much of a bacon eater. I have found that the grass-fed meat I am buying was so much more juicy and delicious that what I had previously been choking down (in fact, before Paleo I ate a largely vegetarian diet). I was skeptical of cutting out legumes, as they had provided most of my protein, but once the weight started melting off I saw the light :) I lost 12 pounds total, and probably would have lost more if I hadn’t had a major off-the-rails week in the middle! I definitely plan to continue following the Paleo plan…I have definitely made some lifestyle changes that I will be sticking with…

"“I am now a believer in this ‘diet."
This might sound cheesy but Paleo has changed my life and my way of thinking about food. I am so much more aware of what I am putting in my body now…and I think that is just huge. Not that I was eating poorly before..but this truly has me thinking through what I am making and the ingredients I am using. Thank you thank you for all of the assistance in menus and grocery lists. I am now a believer in this “diet.” You have changed my life…for real!

The Paleo Diet Is Proven:

The best part of the Paleo diet is that you are not a guinea pig like so many modern day diets.The Paleo diet can help with fat loss, digestive complaints, energy issues, joint pain, and even to produce lower markers for many degenerative diseases because that is what it has done for us and so many others who have adopted a Paleo lifestyle.

Finally, if the results of modern day Paleo dieters isn’t enough proof for you, all we have to do is remember that for nearly 2 million years the human diet went unchanged and our paleolithic ancestors thrived as a result. Only within the last 50 years during the boom of food manufacturing, the demonization of healthy saturated fats, and the implementation of misinformed dietary guidelines has the state of our health taken a drastic turn for the worse.
