FFS 025 - Breaking Bread with Paleo
Updated: Aug 9, 2018
This week, we talk with Natalie Pukasemvarangkoon about the Paleo diet.
Natalie has experimented with pretty much every diet in the book. She’s been a carnivore, a pescatarian, a vegetarian, and a vegan for a solid 3 years. She’s tried the 80/10/10 diet, raw till four, the HCLF diet, and yes, the Paleo diet.
Natalie is the founder of the Paleo Collective - an umbrella for the Paleo lifestyle: providing Paleo-friendly caterings, personal chef services, they host pop-up dinners and provide corporate talks and demos to educate people on the diet and lifestyle. They also run a blog with recipes and health tips related to the Paleo diet.
In this episode, we discuss what the Paleo diet is, and why its Natalie’s diet of choice. We explore:
How to pronounce Paleo – the little things matter!
How to eat Paleo: why eating grains and beans are a big no-no, why gluten is sin, and how choosing quality meat is essential
What the gut microbiome is, how gluten can affect the gut, and how it influences our health and mood
The common cause: why the rift between vegans and paleo obscures important values these diets or lifestyles have in common
