With a modern mimicking of the diets of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, we can reprogram our genes for optimal expression, a.k.a. health!   By … Continue reading

How to Choose the Right Probiotic

If you went Paleo because of digestive health issues or other severe conditions of the intestines like Crohn’s disease, IBD, or ulcerative colitis, you’ve probably been taking probiotics. In fact, many who switched to a Paleo diet for autoimmune reasons, chronic health reasons, thyroid problems, hormone issues, or other conditions involving the stomach eventually start focusing on leaky gut and overall gut health, and for good reason. If your gut isn’t protecting your body from an onslaught of toxins and … Continue reading

Success for A Paleo Plan Subscriber

We recently did an interview with Nina, a Paleo eater and Paleo Plan meal plan subscriber to see how the plan is working for her and how Paleo has changed her life.   PP: How long have you been following Paleo? Nina: I started a strictly Paleo diet May 5th, 2012 and actually signed up for the paleoplan.com that same week I believe.   PP: Why did you join Paleo Plan? Nina: I had been having intestinal pain, bloating, gas and I wasn't … Continue reading

I am not a fan of the muffins made with almond flour and eggs every day for breakfast has become hard to stomach- what can I eat that will be quick, easy and have staying power? … Continue reading

The Cruel Calling of Coffee

Anywhere from 80-90% of the U.S. population drinks caffeine in some form every single day.  More than 50% of people in this country drink more than 3 or 4 cups of coffee every day. To me, this is ridiculous.  I'm sorry, but why are we so hard on alcoholics and smokers for being addicts, but it's perfectly okay to drink a big gulp of coffee that contains a colossal 640 mg of caffeine every day? I know: it's so delicious … Continue reading
