To grain or not to grain – that is the Paleo question!

bread

One of the biggest arguments against the Paleo diet that I hear most often is the claim that “if you remove a food group like grains out of your diet, you’ll be missing out on nutrients.”

Funnily enough they never seem to elaborate much more than that, so of course it piqued my curiosity. Is it really true or are they just joshing with us?

5 reasons why your weight loss program isn’t working…

tapemeasure

I have been reading a few books lately mostly specifically about sugar, grains and weight loss and the interesting thing is that they exactly mirror my beliefs on this subject. My beliefs of course stem from my own experience but also of witnessing the plight of others who keep trying to do the ‘diet and exercise’ advice and fail spectacularly for years, some never succeeding and spending most of their lives miserable.

So let’s take a look at what is wrong here…

I was wondering if anyone had put together an ideal daily food plan that ensures you get your recommended daily allowance (RDA) of all nutrients. Every vitamin, every mineral, everything, every day.

Is it out there? Has anyone done it?

So I went off in search and wondered how my diet fared with this theory and envisaged trying to work out all nutrients in everything I eat. Long laborious task – not enough time – really couldn’t be bothered – and while I was interested in the outcome, I didn’t want to have to do it. So I thought, there must be an app/website that does this and preferably for free, and indeed there is.

Sesame Tahini Bites

I was remembering the chewy Sesame Bar and wondered if I could make the same thing with less sweetener and maybe raw too, so I gave it whirl and while it’s not the same, it’s still yum and deserves a place in the Slim Birdy line up.
