The Paleo Diet Plan is a very balanced, healthy option that appeals to the human body naturally. In other words, it is believed we were meant to eat this way as opposed to the highly processed diets we have become accustomed to.

Nuts and seeds such
as sunflower seeds, pepitas, sesame seeds, almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts can
either be eaten whole or ground to a powder or paste, just be aware of how
calorie dense some nuts can be if trying to actively lose weight.

Once you get your head around the list of many non-paleo items meal planning is a little easier. The reasoning behind these exclusions is quite complicated and the decision to adhere to a strict paleo diet plan or a more relaxed version is entirely personal. Exclusions such as snow-peas, sprouts, honey and green beans are a little too extreme for some.
· Chicken salad with bacon, pumpkin and roast pumpkin
· Thai fishcakes with a warm Thai salad
· Green curried chicken with okra
· Paleo seafood paella
· Roast Beef with steamed greens and roast yams
· Grilled lamb with stuffed mushrooms

A popular diet also means there is a wealth of
information and recipe ideas available online, the Paleo diet can be adapted
any way you like to suit your specific nutritional, ethical and ideological
· Coconut crumbed banana with coconut cream
· Chocolate almond milk with fresh dates
· Paleo apple and cinnamon cookies with almond meal
· Tropical fruit salad with passionfruit and mango nectar

Perhaps the best aspect of a Paleo diet plan is the
restrictions on sugar and processed foods. Weight regulation is but one of the
many positive health benefits to be achieved with a healthier and leaner diet
such as this. Regular exercise is also an important aspect of this diet though
- food with legs or fins was intended to be chased!
