The Paleo Diet:is simply eating like we used to for millennia as hunter-gatherers - before we invented farming and started eating grains, dairy and sugar. Our menu will be particularly friendly to the AIP Paleo diet. It's pretty logical, actually. First of all, we've existed as a species at least 150,000 years. The agricultural revolution didn’t happen until 10,000 years ago. Therefore we had 140,000 years to thrive without eating grains, dairy and sugar. We only ate foods we could hunt or find (pick off a tree or a bush, dig up with a stick). Still a ton of choices: meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds. Because people didn't lug around a cow, there was no dairy. We got all of the sweetness we needed from fruits and vegetables. The average Homo Sapien back then was tall, muscular, agile, athletic, and incredibly versatile. Today the average Homo Sapien is overweight, out of shape, stressed out, unhappy, sleep deprived and as a result, dying from a myriad of preventable diseases. In The Pleasures of Paleo 5: Asia, we'll give you a taste, so to speak, of how wonderful it can be to eat foods FREE of grain, dairy and refined sugar. In other words, Paleo rocks! Our working menu:
Pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)
Chicken Adobo (Philippines)
Char Siu Pork (Chinese BBQ-Style Pork)
Celery and Mushroom Stir-Fry (Taiwan)
Bok Choy and Garlic (China)
Mithai (Indian Coconut "fudge")
