PALEO Cleanse: Best Practices

Standard

It’s hard to believe that PALEO Cleanse has been on the market for over 10 months now!

To all who have read it and supported us, we are forever grateful.

For those of you embarking on your PALEO Cleanse journey, or perhaps redoing it, here are our top 5 all-time best practices:

1. Prepare ahead of time – you’ll be less likely to cheat if you have plenty of good pre-made food options on hand.

2. Carry snacks with you at all times – then there is no excuse for a quick stop at the donut shop!

3. Drink plenty of water – you are about 60% water and your body needs replenishment, plus drinking water helps your body get rid of toxins more quickly.

4. Carry the book/meal plans with you – use the book as your guide and your support–it’s there to help you get through the Cleanse and includes numerous tips to help you along your way.

5. Understand the basic principles of PALEO and review the PALEO FAQ section in the book – beginning with a clear goal in mind and a good foundation on the benefits of Ancestral eating will help you through those tougher times. Confidence and commitment are key–we know you can do it–we did!

And as always if you ever run into questions or want to find out about substituting an ingredient, or if you just want to say “Hi”, we’re here to answer your questions and help you along the way.

Here’s to you!

PALEO Cleanse: Summer Solution

Standard

We know that biting into a big juicy piece of steak while your friends are picking away at a tiny summer salad always makes for a table turner. Nobody can ever get over just how much we eat, but the fact is, if you eat the foods that our human digestive system can easily breakdown, you can eat a whole lot more than you ever thought (without the guilt).

But we know it’s summer–the season of more outdoor time and a whole lot less clothing–and we all want to look our very best. The good news is that gone are the days of heavily restricted eating, calorie counting, liquid diets etc. The world has finally figured out that by following a diet similar to our Ancestors, we can happily eat solid, seemingly fatty foods and still look dashing!

In PALEO Cleanse we walk you through 30-Days of Paleo eating with customizable weekly meal plans that are easy to make but delicious and varied enough to keep you from getting bored. It’s a great way to detox this summer without deprivation dieting. Plus, most people drop pounds, enjoy clearer skin and more toned bodies after just a few weeks on the Cleanse.

So now, when everyone is salivating at the grass-fed steak you are happily devouring you can think to yourself, “you need a copy of PALEO Cleanse”! 😉

Pumpkin Spiced Cookies

Standard

Are you looking for a fall inspired cookie recipe? Well this one is fantastic, it’s packed with pumpkin flavor and is perfect to bring to any fall party you may have coming up. For those of you who have visited our blog before the recipe may seem a little familiar, that’s because it’s the base recipe from our cookie book, Quick and Fantastic Paleo CookiesTake a look at Quick and Fantastic Paleo Cookies if you ever need to whip up a quick, Paleo treat.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup grass-fed butter
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1 ½ tbsp. raw agave
1/2 tsp. of sea salt
1 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. water
1 tsp. natural vanilla extract
1 tsp pumpkin spice

Arrowroot flour as a non-stick base for rolling

RECIPE

Pre-heat the oven to 325 F.
Place foil or parchment paper sheets over your baking sheet. This will prevent your cookies from sticking.
Combine the tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt in a small bowl.
In a food processor (or using a large bowl and an electric hand mixer) beat the butter and sugar for approximately 2 minutes, or until fluffy.
Add the dry ingredients, water, agave and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture and beat until well combined.
Lightly dust arrowroot flour on a clean counter. Using a rolling-pin, roll the cookie dough until 1/4 inch thick and then cut out your cookies using a cookie cutter.
Place the cookies on your lined baking sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

These cookies are delicious and super easy to make.

Thank you so much to those of you who joined us for the demo this past weekend at the Vitamin Cottage-Natural Grocers in Littleton. We had a blast making pumpkin bread and cookies with you. We’re hoping to see you again in November where we’ll show you how to make a few staples for a holiday meal. Don’t forget to bring your copy of PALEO Cleanse so that we can sign it for you!

More about the book:

Paleo Cleanse: 30 Days of Ancestral Eating to Detox, Drop Pounds, Supercharge Your Health and Transition into a Primal Lifestyle

TRANSFORMS THE PROVEN APPROACH OF THE MEGA-POPULAR PALEO DIET INTO A HARDCORE, MONTH-LONG DETOX

By eliminating virtually all foods, most detox programs leave participants hungry and malnourished. The Paleo Cleanse takes a smarter approach. By allowing, but limiting, readers’ meals to only those natural foods that the human body is designed to properly digest, the program in this book guarantees that readers can quickly and effectively drop pounds, gain energy and feel great without starving themselves.

The benefits of the mega-popular paleo approach to eating are widely known, but putting its principles into practice are not so simple. Luckily, The Paleo Cleanse makes it easy by guiding readers step by step into paleo eating with everything from specific food replacements and helpful tips to customized meal plans and 100 delicious recipes.

Easy to follow and stay with, this unique cleanse has readers eating full meals while simultaneously flushing more and more unhealthy items from their system. Addressing unhealthy eating as well as all major food allergens, it also ensures that anyone can achieve renewed health after only one month of paleo eating.
