Food is Nourishment. For body, mind and soul.
So why on earth would I shovel something down my throat, thats negatively af-
fecting one of the above?
Eating food means more than: I eat this, and I work that off.
It must come to your mind that everything you eat runs through your body and it
should help us to improve our energy, stay healthy and get things done without
much effort.
Of course it should be fun, too, by stimulate our creativity and bringing people
Being Paleo/Primal for me, means to refuse some foods, but never get annoyed with
boring or non-tasting ingredients.
In a few words Ill describe it to you.
Grains of any type are not approved, the same goes for vegetable oils, except for
Olive Oil for cold dishes, Avocado Oil and Coconut Oil.
The main sources of fat should be animal fats or healthy vegetable fats.
In the internet, you can read for yourself through a lot of information, why thats so
important for our health and why Paleo or Primal (basically, Paleo with dairy) is the
best way to eat.
The Principle in this diet are our genes, which have not adopted to many kinds
of foods we consume today, such as candied apples, pizza with cheese crust or
doughnuts fried in vegetable oil with vanillaglaze.
Dairy is kind of a grey zone here, many people have adapted to it, some not. That is
something everyone should decide for himself.
Try two weeks without it, see how you feel and decide. Its that simple.
In this book, there will be dairy-based recipes, but very few.
Its also important that even if youre lactose-intolerant, you may tolerate butter and
cream, because there is relatively little lactose in it.
I fry or saut almost everything in butter, ghee (clarifed butter, recommended to
people who are lactose-intolerant, because there is no lactose left in it) or coconut
Fresh, whole foods are the centre of this diet, even greater when its local, seasonal
and organic. But were not perfect, are we?
Meats, poultry and fsh should be, if possible, grass-fed, free-range and wild caught.
What are the measurements?
All Recipes are measured with the metric system and the temperatures are meas-
ured in C with top and bottom heat.
What do I need in almost every recipe?
I dont always write the following items down, because they are items that should
be standing in every kitchen.
- Ghee
- Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Salt
- Pepper
Lose weight
with Paleo?
12 13
To understand, how to lose weight with Paleo, you frst have to under-
stand, how you GAIN it to begin with.
And the big bad Wolf here isnt, as most people would expect it, fat, but
Its quite simple, actually:
Sugar consumption -> raised Insulin levels -> Fat reduction is stopped,
and fat is being saved in the Cells
So to lose weight, you have to restrict your carbs on most cases. Of course every
body is different and everyone should see whats the best way, but in most cases,
carb reduction is the frst step to a healthier body.
Many studies show, that women especially need carbs more than many men do,
but everyone should fnd out for themselves whats best for them.
When you are very active or do sports like crossft, it can be benefcial to keep
some carbs in your diet, as glucose can be used by the body very quickly and ef-
fcient to rebuild muscles. You just have to know what kind of carbs are safe.
The most important thing about this is, that you try to get your carbs from glucose
or starch, and not fructose, because our body , especially our brain, can use it very
Some starchy veggies are: Sweet potatos, yams, and other root vegetables.
One of my favourite starchy vegetables is the sweet potato, because you can use it
in so many ways.
In terms of calories and carb content they dont vary much from white potatoes,
but they have much more nutrients, for example Vitamin A and D.
So, when I do sports, its smart to eat something starchy that day, or something
like a banana, that has glucose in it. The muscles rebuild much more faster, and
you will beneft from that.
Speaking of fruit, there are many questions asked about that.
Most Fruits content has more fructose than glucose, which is bad for the blood
sugar and will increase your appetite. You will want to eat more, although youre
already stuffed. The fruits we have today are so much sweeter than back in the
days, when they were wild, and we havent adapted to eat so much sugar as we
do today.
To speak frankly, all fruits and vegetables are Paleo, because they are whole
foods, but you should look more closely to which fruits are smart to consume.
My favourites are fruits low in fructose, as our body cant really get benefts from
foods high in fructose.
Great fruits low in fructose are berries of all kind (frozen berries with Coconut Milk
or cream are a great, low carb treat, for example!), pears, peaches, apricots or fgs
(but not the dried ones, which content much too much sugar).
Not so bad after all, is it?
So whats with Sweeteners and Table Sugar?
Of course table sugar should not be consumed, natural sugars are much better for
you for many reasons.
For my desserts, I always choose maple syrup or honey, as they are closest to
Whole Foods as sweeteners can be.
Here some benefts:
Maple syrup contains more glucose than fructose, and can be used much better by
your body.
Honey contains many micro nutrients, that are benefcial for us.
Sweetened foods and desserts must be handled as a treat, even though they are
much more healthier than the usual treats we know from the candy store or ice
cream truck.
I love to make treats and desserts for my friends or family, for a birthday or a
3-Course dinner I cook for my favourite people. Id never consider to bake a whole
tray of cupcakes just for myself or bake cookies just to eat them by myself.
Its natural that we all want to treat ourself from time to time, but its important to
understand that this should be occasional. And when you want to treat yourself, I
think the natural way is the best.
Stevia, a natural sweetener made from leaves, can be used also, you can get it as a
liquid as well as a powder.
I like to use it from time to time, but the taste doesnt always ft in, so I often prefer
honey and maple syrup, it adds interesting favours to the dishes, although it rises
your blood sugar more than stevia would.
But hey, its a treat, right?
