This is hilarious on so many levels. Way to go congress. During all of these discussions nobody even considered the fact that TOMATOES ARE FRUIT!
When people see my eating habits they assume that I am following the Atkins diet which is also a “low carb” diet. The two diets are in fact quite similar but of course the paleo diet is far superior. I found this great article explaining a few of the differences between the paleo diet and the Atkins diet.
Paleo Diet Bread Recipe
I have had a serious craving for bread lately and since bread is definitely not allowed on the paleo diet I had to find an alternative. I decided to try making some bread-like dish out of almond meal, coconut flour and flax seed meal (all allowed on the paleo diet). Here is the recipe:
- 1.5 cups almond meal
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 0.25 cups flax seed meal
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- salt to taste
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, mix all the ingredients together and place in a loaf pan and then bake for about 40 minutes.
The bread was great and satisfied my cravings for now, although it tasted extremely “nutty.” Next time I make it I will add a bit more coconut flour, cut back on the almond meal, and add some cinnamon.

My favorite meal on the paleo diet is breakfast for two reasons. First off it is really easy to make breakfast on the paleo diet. I usually just take whatever vegetables I have left in the fridge, chop em up, add some meat and eggs and I’m done. The second reason I love breakfast is that I am obsessed with eggs. Contrary to popular belief eggs are extremely healthy for you (lucky me). Check out this recent article from sciencedaily.com for the latest egg research.
For those of you who are interested in duplicating the paleo omelet pictured above here is the recipe:
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
- 2 strips of bacon, chopped
- 1 zucchini, chopped
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp pepper
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon for a couple of minutes, then add everything except for the eggs. Stir frequently until the zucchini is slightly tender then add the eggs. Let the eggs set then flip the omelet (alternatively you can cover the pan to cook the top). Enjoy!
Remember this can be done with any veggies (onions, mushrooms, etc) and any type of meat (bacon, sausage, chicken, etc).
By far the most important thing I have done to ensure success (so far) is to surround myself with people living the paleo lifestyle. This keeps me motivated, keeps me in check (I am less likely to cheat), and also provides a continuous source of ideas for recipes, meal plans, etc.
This mini “community” I have created in my life has been so important to my success that I wanted to expand beyond my immediate family and friends, and that is why I joined the caveman forum. I have only been here for a week, but I have already learned so much from them.
Of course there are other, more obvious keys to success like knowing which foods to eat, but if you are part of a paleo community all of these other keys will follow automatically. If you haven’t done so already I strongly urge you to find people close to you that are willing to join you in your paleo journey.

I figured the best way to get you started with the paleo diet is to offer a free paleo diet eBook! This eBook provides an excellent introduction to the paleo diet.
My name is Ken Ross and I spent 10 years of my life suffering from countless health issues including chronic fatigue, sinusitis, and irritable bowel syndrome just to name a few. I rarely left the house except to go to work and I actually forgot what it felt like to wake up feeling rested. Finally a friend introduced me to the paleo diet.
A couple of weeks into the diet I woke up and a very strange feeling came over me. I was alert and energized – it was as if I was seeing the world through brand new eyes! Since that day I haven’t looked back. I started noticing other mini miracles too: my sinuses cleared up, I never get stomach aches, and combining the paleo diet with exercise I lost 6 pounds and 4% body fat in the first month!
The reason I have started this account, and all of my other ventures which I will share with you later, is to share the paleo diet with as many people as I possibly can. I will update tumblr frequently with paleo diet information, tips, resources, eBooks, and whatever else I can think of to help people on their path to a healthy life.
