Everyday more and more people I know are adopting a Paleo diet. Most of them are doing Cross Fit which has turned them onto the Paleo diet, but some are just opting to use this as a diet or eating plan. Basically to follow a Paleo diet, also known as a Paleolithic or Caveman Diet, you don’t eat anything that our Paleolithic counterparts couldn’t have eaten. That means that meat, fruits, veggies, nuts, and unprocessed grains are in, but all processed food, white flour, and sugar is out. (This explanation is very, very simplified). Although I will never fully adopt a Paleo diet or stray from Weight Watchers, I do love the idea of eating less processed foods and eating in the way our planet naturally provides for us. I also love the idea of lowering my carb intake since that is the only way I can ever push through a plateau in my weight loss. This simple recipe for Cauliflower rice is a staple in most Paleo diets and is surprisingly delicious. I ate some last night with the Indian Butter Chicken and was completely satisfied.
