The Primal Diet calls for the complete elimination of modern foods in favor of foods that humans have had available to them for their entire history. The theory behind this approach is that the foods human ancestors ate, up until the last 100 years or so, were the foods with which humans evolved and thus provide optimal nutrition while not promoting weight gain. Modern foods such as vegetable oils, grains, dairy and legumes, according to "The Primal Blueprint," promote fat storage through insulin reaction, increase heart disease and diabetes risk, and cause food intolerance problems from the lectins, phytates and gluten found in foods such as grains and legumes.
I for one don't believe in diets. I take a common sense approach to my eating. I do, however, believe that processed and packaged foods are not doing anyone any good. This recipe came from Debbie's blog The Loving Path.
My kids didn't think they were sweet enough but all the adults I gave them to thought they were great. Zack's English teacher from last year has a gluten allergy, so she was thrilled to taste test and receive the recipe.
I enjoyed my last bowlful this afternoon with a cup of organic white tea with vanilla.

And have a terrific Tuesday!
