How To Eat Healthy With The Paleo Diet

How to Eat Healthy with the Paleo Diet

It's still the beginning of a brand new year and a great time to change your eating habits, not diet, but make lifestyle changes and I couldn't think of a better way to do it, than with the Paleo diet cookbook. It is chock full of great recipes that are also healthy. So many times when we attempt to change  our eating habits it's very difficult to stick to changes because we feel that we are depriving ourselves of something.

Well, with the Paleo diet you won't miss out on anything, so that you don't have to get into the endless cycle of falling off of the healthy eating path and getting back on and falling back off.......

Here is one of my favorite Paleo Recipes:

Grilled Pork Chops with Stone Fruit Slaw

(serves 4)
For the Chops:
4 bone-in pork chops, about 1-1.5 inches thick
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground paprika
For the Slaw:
1 pound assorted firm stone fruit (peaches, plums, apricots, etc)
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder (or to taste, this amount will give it a good kick)
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 teaspoon lime juice
pinch sea salt
  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and remove your pork chops from the fridge.
  2. Combine the teaspoon of salt, cumin, coriander and paprika in a small bowl and stir to combine
  3. Divide the spice rub among the chops, making sure to coat both sides.
  4. Grill chops for about 5 minutes on each side, or until almost cooked through.
    Alternately, if you don’t have a grill, Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add your preferred cooking fat (lard would be a good choice here) Sear the chops for 5 minutes on each side, or until almost cooked through.
  5. Remove to a plate and cover loosely with foil, allowing them to rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the slaw: Julienne fruit and place in a medium bowl. Mix in the chipotle powder, lime zest, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine.
  7. Serve the chops topped with the slaw, or alongside for guests to help themselves.
