    I looooooooove that song by Erica Campbell ‘Help’. This was my first time hearing “No Greater Love” by Smokie Norful and I dig it big time.

  2. caveman diet meal plan August 3, 2014

    I get asked a lot about the difference between the different kinds of diets, especially the difference between the paleo diet and the primal or caveman diet. There’s really a lot of mixed info out there on the internet. The Caveman Diet and The Paleolithic Age.
    The second error in premise is maybe a lot more substantial. The caveman diet is a terrific diet when you want to reside to be 30 or 35 years old. That was the adult life expectancy until fairly, especially recently (indeed, it wasn’t until well after the advent of agriculture which lifetime expectancies began to rise—in agricultural communities!). We recognize this from skeletal evidence. Individuals elder than 40 at death are really rare in the Palaeolithic record. At the 300,000 year aged Spanish website of Sima de los Huesos, archaeologists found the remains of 32 people that had been dropped down a shaft inside a cave.
    Note which authors disagree on a few details. I am in the process of revising this list to reflect the evolving thinking on this topic, nevertheless it’s not my goal to comprehensively list the tips of the growing number of authors on the topic. One thing which these authors agree on is the fact that there is not any way that you will exactly duplicate the food of the Paleolithic period, so substitutions should be made in several cases. This accounts for various of the differing choices of the authors. Meats plus Eggs
    On a Paleo diet, the dietary fat we choose is important, yet if you dial inside a carb and protein sources, the fat virtually takes care of itself. Many health woes are caused by inflammation, the root of that is a lopsided ratio of monounsaturated omega-3 fatty acids to polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acids. Paleo-friendly foods like wild-caught salmon, avocado, grass-fed beef and certain kinds of eggs are perfect sources of omega-3s. By eliminating processed junk food you will radically reduce your intake of industrial-use vegetable oils, which are loaded with omega-6 fatty acids. A Paleo-style diet moreover eradicates trans fats from a life.
    Many diets will function whenever exercise is put into the blend. Along with eating more lean meats and avoiding very processed carb-packed foods like potato chips plus fast food, we might spend more time outdoors. Why not have several fun with the caveman concept plus go on a wild blueberry selecting excursion, choose wild leeks in the spring, go for hikes plus invest time camping under the stars. It’s been proven which diets work when it involves a change in lifestyle. Maybe learning much more about the caveman will change the way of thinking.
    An indelible component of Paleo is eating meat. It’s valued highly for its protein, fats, and essential vitamins. However not all meat is the same. Folks found on the Paleo diet destination considerable focus on eating grass fed natural meats because opposed to grain fed stock raised in factory farms. It’s been shown which grain fed beef contributes to a skewed omega 3 to 6 ratio and that it impairs our ability to absorb compounds. Factory farms moreover infuse their livestock with hormones and other questionable chemical concoctions. Paleo dieters are increasingly turning away from these foods, preferring rather to eat “clean” meat.caveman diet recipes
