What is the Paleo diet

The Great AIP Pumpkin Round-Up

Image banana_pumpkin_portrait_1.jpg

It’s officially pumpkin season! Even if the weather hasn’t quite changed where you live, chances are you’re starting to crave all those fabulous fall flavors. While most of us associate fall with the pumpkin spice seasoning ubiquitous in frothy coffee drinks, pumpkin itself is an amazing addition to both sweet and savory dishes. One cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin provides a whopping 245% of our DV for vitamin A (as vitamin A Read more

My Pregnancy Health and Fitness Routine

Image My-Pregnancy-Health-and-Fitness-Routine-%7C-Freckled-Italian

It seems a little unreal to me that I'm well into my third trimester of this pregnancy! I wanted to write up a short post about my food and exercise routine these past few months, because I like to think I'm a pretty health and fitness-oriented person but I've definitely had days (or weeks) where diet and exercise (especially diet) just weren't a priority, and I think that's okay. I'm happy to report that my mostly good habits have really carried Read more

Recipe: Bring on the Produce!

At The Paleo Diet, we look forward to August when our local farmer’s markets are stocked with a plentiful array of fresh-picked produce. We love visiting the various vendors to pick up a bounty of heirloom tomatoes, squash, onions, peppers, lettuce, spinach, peaches, strawberries, melons, and just about anything that grows in our neck of the woods. Right through October, there is little need to visit our local grocery chain, as you can’t beat the Read more

Wedge Salad

Image img_6721.jpg

Hey folks, we’re going to enjoy a short, simple dish this week. I’m in the middle of prep for a two-week stretch of recipe development, hopefully my last big push in the kitchen before I focus on writing other parts of my next book! I think there’s something unfairly simple about wedge salads. They’re a cinch to put together at home, but I often find myself ordering them at restaurants, despite the fact that I’m Read more

Five Paleo Dinners To Cook Next Week #71

Image venice-restaurants-by-canal-xlarge-1024x640.jpg

Buongiorno, my friends! Dave and I are heading to Venice for a vacation tomorrow. I know it might seem like we’re on vacation all the time because we moved to Prague, and it’s very romantic and adventurous and awesome. And life in Prague is all of those adjectives, but we’re not on vacation all the time. There’s work and cooking and errands and conference calls and—today’s special treat—meeting with accountants. But Read more

Should I Take a GLA Supplement?

Image Inline_GLA_09.21.17.jpg

Recently, a reader inquired about gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and inflammation. Is GLA everything it’s made out to be? Is it something all of us should add to our diets? Can we obtain it through real foods, or do we need to rely on supplements? There’s certainly a lot of hype about GLA’s ability to heal chronic inflammation and even to facilitate an easier transition into menopause (something I’ll cover more in a follow-up post). Read more

Toad’s Top 10 21 Day Sugar Detox Staple Foods

Are you addicted to sugar? Do you binge eat from emotional stress? It helps to have a few convenience staple foods around so you eat those instead of the junk food. I’ve done Diane’s 21 Day Sugar Detox 3 times and will be doing it in the future as well. It’s always nice to be strict for 3 straight weeks. I have bent the rules in the past but will soon do it as Diane lays it out. The following are foods that I make sure I have on Read more

The Little-Known Connection between Leaky Gut, Gluten Intolerance, and Gallbladder Problems

As Hippocrates once said, “All disease begins in the gut.” Researchers have indeed found that many diseases are linked to changes in gut microbes or gut function. I’ve written many articles on connections between the gut and other organs on my blog: Gut–brain Gut–bone health Gut–thyroid Gut–skin While I have helped many patients resolve gallbladder and other biliary conditions in my clinic, I haven’t covered gallbladder issues on the Read more

3 Ways to Regulate Insulin that Have Nothing to Do With Food

Image 3-Ways-to-Regulate-Insulin-Exercise-450.jpg

Regulating blood sugar levels is a key feature of any health-promoting diet. High blood sugar levels after eating are a major stimulator of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are chemically reactive molecules that have important roles in cell signaling (the complex communication between and within cells) and in homeostasis (maintenance of a stable environment inside and outside the cell). But ROS are also potent signals for inflammation and Read more
