I keep coming across references to the “Paleo Diet” these days, including recipes for smoothies. Since I don’t know anything about Paleo, I decided to do some research and get myself better informed.

If you are in the same boat, I hope you’ll find this article by Robb Wolf that I found as helpful and informative as I did?

paleo-diet-benefits-honeycomb-700x899The Paleo diet is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the ONLY nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic! Research in biology, biochemistry, Ophthalmology, Dermatology and many other disciplines indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility. – Robb Wolf

After explaining what is meant by a “Paleo diet”, Robb goes on to outline

  • how to create a healthy Paleo diet
  • the health benefits of a Paleo Diet, and
  • answers to common questions

For example, he discusses how diabetics can benefit, among others.
