Now that bathing suit season has arrived, many are looking for healthier meal options to stay slim in the summer. While seeking out healthier alternatives, people often turn to the very trendy, very healthy Paleo Diet. First, we’ll provide a little background on what this diet involves. According to nerdfitness.com, “the Paleo Diet is an effort to eat like we used to eat back in the day…way back in the day. If a caveman couldn’t eat it, neither can you.” Essentially, the Paleo Diet only includes foods that could be hunted/gathered in the prehistoric era. Therefore, this diet cuts out processed foods, like cereal and candy. We’re going to give you a Paleo appetizer, entrée, and dessert so you can have a completely Paleo meal in no time.
