The Paleo Diet
The trend of eating like our palaeolithic ancestors has been around since the Nineties, based on eating grass-reared meats, fish and seafood, fresh and local fruits and veggies, free-range eggs, nuts and seeds, basically anything that is unprocessed. However, there are also certain cereal grains such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, rice and even pseudo-grains such as quinoa and buckwheat that should be avoided, as well as ‘healthy’ legumes such as chickpeas, lentils, beans and peanuts, and dairy is strictly off-limits.
With so many dos and don’ts with this eating plan, the effort of creating paleo-friendly meals just got a whole lot easier, with fresh ingredients and recipes that take no longer than 30 minutes to create, delivered fresh to your door. Dishes include grilled salmon with tossed garlic, chilli and almond greens and Aussie style beef burgers, with an ingredients box which is dairy-free, grain-free and processed food free. Fresh produce will (where possible) be grass-fed, local, and often organic. You will learn how to make fresh alternatives to commercialised pantry items and substitute grains with a creative use of vegetables.
The following week’s menu is emailed in advance, and you have the option of choosing whether or not to have the food box delivered. Delivery options include regular subscriptions to weekly or fortnightly deliveries as well as ad hoc delivery at your convenience.
