What Is The Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet, often referred to as the Caveman diet, is a diet that resembles the eating habits of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Thousands of years ago, hunter-gatherers had no choice but to eat whole, nutritious foods. There were no processed sugars, sugary drinks, artificial sweeteners, or trans fats—just wholesome foods with simple ingredients.
This was all long before modern agriculture and our current processed, factory-made food environment existed. Our ancestors hunted for their food, gathering whatever source of nutrients they could in order to eat and sustain their energy. This all happened around 10,000 years ago. People typically hunted or gathered and ate foods like fish, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
These cavemen ancestors of ours didn’t even have dairy products, legumes, and grains yet. There was nothing like the modern agriculture systems we have today. That means no harvesting wheat, no milking cows, no finding beans, or making bread, cheese, or sweets. The development of the modern farming we see today just didn’t exist yet.
The Paleo diet consists of whole, unprocessed foods, but let’s break down what that actually means. Like we said, on Paleo, you’re encouraged to eat foods like meat, seafood, eggs, veggies, fruits, potatoes, nuts, healthy fats, and spices.
Here are a few examples of Paleo-friendly choices:
- Meat: Turkey, beef, chicken, lamb, pork
- Seafood: Shrimp, salmon, shellfish, tuna, tilapia, oysters, lobster
- Eggs: Free-range eggs, whole eggs, egg whites
- Vegetables: Broccoli, onions, kale, squash, sweet potato, beet
- Fruits: Bananas, apples, berries, peaches, watermelon, oranges, lemon, mango
- Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cashews, hazelnuts
- Healthy Fats: Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, coconut butter, ghee
- Spices: Salt, garlic, turmeric, pepper, rosemary, oregano, thyme, parsley
Many of our gut-healthy friends may ask Is Paleo good for gut health? Just like any diet we follow, making a variety of daily food choices that are gut-friendly, low-GI, and have prebiotic and probiotic properties is great for gut health. So the answer is yes, Paleo can be a gut health protocol diet.
The Benefits of the Paleo Diet
Committing to the Paleo diet is about more than eating like a caveman and saying goodbye to processed foods. Paleo is a lifestyle rooted in holistic living and reeling it back to the basics of human health.
The Paleo diet can aid in so many great health benefits. Your body won’t say no to whole, nutritious foods. These foods can boost gut health, heart health, and overall wellbeing. We love Paleo because of all its healthy benefits!
1. Paleo Is Time Tested
The Paleo diet champions eating from an evolutionary perspective. We’ve been eating as hunter-gatherers for thousands of years. It was only in recent decades that we began to see diet-related to health problems like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Paleo doesn’t allow most foods that contribute to these health problems.
2. You Eat Mean And Clean
The Paleo diet is all about eating more like a human and getting rid of all that toxic junk food. Processed foods and sugars? They can cause weight gain, brain fog, an unhealthy gut, skin irritations, spike in blood sugar, diabetes, and much more. But with Paleo, say goodbye to those health-busters. Eating clean, wholesome food can make you feel great, clean, and energized.
3. It’s Satisfying
The Paleo diet is packed full of anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense foods. Vegetables, fruits, healthy fats—yum! These foods fill you up during each meal and snack, giving you the energy and focus to get the most out of every day.
4. Paleo Can Be Gut-Healthy
Many of the Paleo-friendly foods we listed above are gut-friendly foods too. Bananas, onions, garlic, apples, protein—they’re all gut healthy, Paleo foods. Some of these ingredients can also be found in our Rowdy Bars. Almonds, sunflower seeds, cranberries, blueberries, and peanuts can all be found among the ingredients in our four Rowdy Bars flavors.
5. Paleo Is A Great Weight Loss Diet
Every diet you try out should be thought of as a new lifestyle, not a temporary fix. And Paleo makes that transition so fun, filling, and satisfying, especially when you see weight loss results come along among your new lifestyle choice. Eating whole foods on the Paleo diet and avoiding processed, high-carb foods decreases your blood sugar levels which can reduce body fat and lead to weight loss.
What Makes Rowdy Bars Paleo-Friendly?
Usually, snack bars are forbidden in the Paleo diet, but Rowdy makes the cut as Paleo snack bars! Because our bars are dairy-free, honey-free, and grain-free, Paleo dieters can count on Rowdy Bars as a reliable source of a gut-healthy, Paleo-approved protein and fiber.
As Paleo energy bars without dates, Rowdy Bars give you energy, are gut-healthy, and tasty and sweet. Their sweetness is even gut-healthy because of the prebiotic ingredient yacon root syrup that we use in every bar. They bring ease to snacking and are great Paleo energy bars for cycling and other on-the-go outdoor activities.
And because Rowdy Bars are healthy for our gut, Rowdy snack bars can have positive effects on tons of other parts of our body too. Like our skin, for example. A healthy gut can help clear up skin irritations and prevent new ones from appearing. A healthy gut can also encourage more energy and better sleep. It even aids in repairing a leaky gut. Yep, that’s right—Rowdy Bars are even a Paleo food that heals leaky gut!
