Going Paleo – High Protein Low Carb Dishes

When I speak at cancer conferences, I’m often asked about the low carb Paleo diet, so here goes. The Paleo diet is based on what researchers imagine was the diet of our Paleolithic (Stone Age) hunter-gatherer ancestors, hence the name ‘Paleo’. The idea is that our bodies haven’t changed that much and as a result haven’t adapted well to modern processed foods, so the Paleo diet stays with...American Institute for Cancer Research. If you choose to eat Paleo, be sure to limit your intake of red meat, as this is known to be linked to increased cancer risk. Eat a rich variety of healthy phytonutrient-rich vegetables with whatever proteins you choose, and make sure to have some plant-sources of calcium to make up for the lack of dairy foods. Here are some recipe ideas that fit the Paleo way.
