Paleo Diet Gaining Popularity
The Paleo Diet, rapidly gaining popularity, consists of meals containing foods such as those that were consumed by our ancestors before processed and junk foods were available. In the United States, obesity is on the rise. Nearly 63 percent of the adult population is either overweight or obese.
Experts suggest that the influx of obesity could be attributed to the additives in processed foods available on the market today.

Planning Paleo Diet Breakfast Meals
Just a “heads up” about one fundamental shift in thinking that most people would need to make when they are new to the Paleo Diet.
When most individuals think of breakfast, dairy products and grains usually come to mind first. All dairy products and grains are eliminated in the Paleo Diet. Only fresh or organic foods are consumed. It is best to choose those foods that are seasonal for the best results.
You will need to avoid choosing foods that contain not only dairy and grain but salt, legumes, yeast, soy, sugars and starches. Although it may seem that there is nothing left to choose from, you will be pleasantly surprised. In little time and with a bit of practice, planning your breakfast meals will become an easy and naturally simple task.
Quick and Easy Paleo Breakfast Pancakes
- 2 Eggs-Large
- ¼ TSP Cinnamon
- ½ Cup Cashew Nut Butter
- ½ TSP Vanilla Extract
- ½ Cup Sugar-Free Applesauce
- Coconut Oil
In a large mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes smooth. Place a medium-size frying pan on medium heat and add enough coconut oil to cover the frying surface lightly. Allow the oil to heat until a drop of water pops when added. Pour batter from the bowl into the heated frying pan. You may make pancakes in any size you wish. More batter makes larger pancakes while small amounts will yield smaller ones. Allow to fry for a couple of minutes or until the pancake edges are brown before flipping to the other side and fry for one to two more minutes. Paleo pancakes may be served with a topping such as mash blueberries that have warmed. Any of the fruits included in the Paleo diet can be used as toppings. Look into the paleo cookbooks review for more information.

- 3 Medium or Large Eggs (Cold)
- 3 TBSP Heavy Cream

- Nutmeg (Optional)
Crack cold eggs into small mixing bowl. Add heavy cream to eggs for a creamier result. To get fluffy eggs use water instead of heavy cream. Eggs can also be prepared without using any cream or water.
Before mixing eggs, heat non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Quickly whisk egg mixture using a fork. Add sea salt and ground black pepper as desired while mixing. Add pinch of nutmeg for enhancing the flavor. Do not over-whisk egg mixture in order to maintain some texture. Stir eggs with wooden spoon often in order to prevent sticking and scorching. You will find that most all of the food allowed by the Paleo diet has great flavor.
