Only a few years ago, no one had heard of the paleo diet, or. Beware of amalgams, the word “diet” does not describe a way of eating in order to lose weight, but rather a diet as a whole, with its food choices and lifestyle.
This way of eating seems so logical if we lived in nature, yet is so difficult in our hyper-industrialized society.
In this article, we are therefore going to take a quick tour of the foods that are compatible or not with the paleo diet, and then move on to some paleo recipes that you can cook at home.
What is the paleo diet?
The Paleo diet takes its name from the Paleolithic era, when Man was a hunter-gatherer and had to obtain food himself, all of it found in nature. So no, to switch to the paleo diet, you will not have to hunt and gather your food, but rather get closer to natural foods. Indeed, the paleo diet is both qualitative, healthy and raw.
Thus, all industrial, processed and ultra-processed foods are prohibited. Other foods, such as dairy products and cereals containing gluten, are not compatible because their physiological effects do not correspond to the paleo vision. You can discover the details via this article, because this one is dedicated to paleo recipes!
Stuffed tomatoes :
A traditional dish, revisited for a paleo recipe!
Ingredients for 4 persons :
4 nice tomatoes
500g ground beef
2 yellow or red onions
2 cloves garlic
4 tablespoons of olive oil
parsley and Provencal herbs
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Peel and chop the onions. Peel and press the garlic cloves.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat, then sauté the onion and garlic. Once well browned, add the minced meat, Provencal herbs, salt and pepper. You don’t have to cook the meat completely because it will continue to cook in the oven.
Prepare the tomatoes: for this, cut the cap and empty them of their pulp. Divide and place the pre-cooked ground meat inside the tomatoes, then put the caps back on.
Pour a little basmati rice at the bottom of the dish (amount of your choice), then place your stuffed tomatoes on top.
