Hi There, Fellow Gardeners!
This is AnnahMarie and Becca.
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on The Paleo Diet.
Benefits of the Paleo Diet
Let’s face it – the number one thing most are sub-conscious about is their weight. Obesity is massive issue in today’s world.
The paleo diet adjusts the balances of your ‘normal’ diet to help fit your weight loss goal.
Do a trial run (with physicians okay) and see if this diet can work for you!
Boost the immune system:
With pollen, dust, and pet fur being at its peak season, the last thing the body needs is allergies to disrupt your well-planned schedule. It has been said that the Paleo Diet can strengthen the immune system for this time of flying fur-balls and dust bunnies, without tearing your wallet in two.
Diabetes and Cardiovascular System:
The Paleo Diet may help with aiding diabetes and healing cardiovascular problems. The food “categories” that are in the Paleo Diet contain less cholesterol than an average diet, and may help lower blood pressure levels.
Always consult your physician/nutritionist for changes in your diet.
What is IN the Paleo diet?
Organic Gurlz Gardens is here to share a few foods that should (and shouldn’t) be in your diet.
Fruits and Vegetables:
Just in case, if you were unsure about produce from the garden, don’t be. Fresh Herbs, Edible flowers, Fruits, and Veggies can all be incorporated into the Paleo Diet.
*The more veggies, the better! *
Say no to canned food!
To re-instate the ‘freshness’ from the previous paragraph, the Paleo diet ‘guidelines’ include avoiding canned and processed foods.
Avoid dairy products:
In the Paleo diet, dairy items such as cheese and milk can only be consumed rarely. Be wary as to what ingredients are in other products you consume.
Pile on the seafood:
Sushi, Fish, and Crab are all great ways to put protein in your Paleo diet.
*Again, always consult your physician/nutritionist for changes in your food regimen.*
And of course, don’t forget to exercise as well!
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
