10 Paleo Recipes You’d Be Willing To Give Up Bread For

10 Paleo Recipes You’d Be Willing To Give Up Bread For

I once heard a very (un)wise person say: I could never eat Paleo. I need to eat more than vegetables, fruit and meat. I need my brownies! I need my cookies! I need my pancakes! I need everything typically associated with sugar and grains!

That person was me.

After some searching and some amazing creativity, I am happily shocked to be proven wrong and with a throw of recipes which can satisfy any craving!

The best thing about all these recipes is that they are all healthy, especially in contrast to their original (non paleo) version. Enjoy these 10 and get ready to be busy in the kitchen!

1. Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Muffins via Lexi’s Clean Kitchen

    A muffin recipe which has everyone’s favourite chocolate spread and is paleo friendly? Let’s get busy in the kitchen!

    2. Breakfast Cookie Dough via The Big Man’s World

      I’d never thought cookie dough for breakfast could happen but one which is healthy to boot? I know what I’m making tomorrow!

      3. Chocolate Mini Muffins via The Pretty Bee

        The mini sizes mean that we can consume more…am I right?

          Even if this recipe took 2 hours, I’d be game to make it. Fortunately for us, it takes 5 minutes and it’s too ridiculous for words.

          5. Pumpkin Oatmeal via Kiss My Broccoli

            6. Mocha Almond Pancakes via The Healthy Maven

              This has been my ‘go to’ pancake recipe and I’m most definitely not Paleo. It even can convert the biggest white sugar fan.

                Get a dose of healthy fats (and fruit!) with this moreish pudding, and know your doing your body a favour over it’s traditional counter part!

                8. Microwave English Muffin via The Big Man’s World

                  I love English Muffins and am amazed that it can actually have a paleo spin on it and be made in the microwave! Ready in 5 minutes? Let’s get the stop watch sorted.

                  9. Vegan Peppermint Patties via Fit Foodie Finds

                    Peppermint patties have such an unfair stigma. They’re delicious and deadly (because full of calories). Now with this version, they become delicious and nutrient dense. The double D’s I approve of.

                    10. Mini Deep Dish Pizzas via Lexi’s Clean Kitchen

                    paleo

                      Be still, my heart. No that is not a Chicago deep dish classic. It’s even better.

                      After seeing these…I’m sorry Mrs.Baker Lady. We’re over.

                      Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

                      Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

                      Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

                      What the study found out

                      “I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

                      (applauds)

                      Advertising

                      I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

                      In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

                      And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

                      Advertising

                      Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

                      There are limits, of course

                      But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

                      And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

                      The health benefits of red wine

                      But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

                      Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

                      Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

                      Be aware of the risks, too

                      Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

                      However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

                      By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

                      Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
