Is Paleo the best thing for Grass-fed Organic Meat?

I have been doing some research on the Paleo diet and if I look closely it’s something farmers have been on for many years. Most farmers eat what they produce and eat it organically even if they do not go to the trouble of getting certification. But in order to promote and assist the Paleo diet we must first look at what it is and why it’s so in right now.

The Paleo diet isbased on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans, consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit and excluding dairy or cereal products and processed food.

For a quick “do eat” and “don’t eat” see the chart below

EAT

  • Grass-fed meats
  • Fish/seafood
  • Fresh fruits
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Healthy oils (olive, walnut, flaxseed, macadamia, avocado, coconut)

DON’T EAT

  • Cereal grains
  • Legumes (including peanuts)
  • Dairy
  • Refined sugar
  • Potatoes
  • Processed foods
  • Overly salty foods
  • Refined vegetable oils
  • Candy/junk/processed food

As we grow our own grass-fed meats I would like to know where are you getting yours from? 

Out of these two lists I can say we aren’t doing it correctly but we are better than some. we have limited fish / seafood, But I have dairy, milk in my tea and coffee, butter on my toast and we have potatoes. So I guess we are doing what all people do, we mix up our diet to suit our needs. Where we live it’s a 100km + trip to go to the shops, so if it’s not in the cupboard or on the shopping list then it’s not here nor does it get bought.

If you are anything like me, I can look at a recipe and want to cook it, I will even go as far as writing ingredients on the list, if I don’t have them and then forget why I have written them down.

I have found a 4 week Paleo Diet Challenge from the Body+ Soul by Irena Macri. If anyone would like a copy click the link or email me admin@bullysbeef.com.au 

If you decide to do it let me know how you go.
