The paleo diet has been gaining in popularity over the past few years. Celebrities like Megan Fox and Matthew McConaughey have endorsed the effectiveness of this diet, but the paleo diet is far from a novelty. Devised in the 1970s by doctor Walter Voegtlin, this diet claims that many health benefits can derive from eating in a way similar to that of our ancestors. This diet is based on the premise that in hunter-gatherer societies, modern diseases like diabetes, cancer, or cardiovascular disease were rare, so going back to the staples eaten regularly in Paleolithic times can help reduce the risk of developing these diseases.

Since the paleo diet recommends eating vegetables, fruit, lean meat, fish, and nuts, switching to this type of diet is easy. There are plenty of flavourful recipes that you can enjoy while on the paleo diet. Turn your kitchen into a detox spa for the day with these recipes.

BREAKFAST

Green eggs on toast
This is a filling revised version of a classic breakfast recipe. Improve the taste, texture, and nutrient content of eggs by putting them in a blender with kale anad spinach before scrambling them, and serve on rye bread.

Paleo crepes
Energize your morning with this version of crepes, in which you replace regular flour with tapioca flour. Finish off with a berry, coconut, and almond milk smoothie enriched with an egg.

LUNCH

Yam and chicken soup
Prepare this stew-like soup with chicken thighs, vitamin-packed yam, carrots, chard, onions, and your favourite herbs. You can add a side dish of apple coleslaw if you wish.

Meatloaf
Have a couple of slices of this delicious and protein-filled meatloaf, made with lean beef, onion, garlic, egg, and red pepper. Add a sprinkle of flaxseed oil to the mix for extra goodness.

Spinach and crabmeat salad
This healthy salad is so filling that works as a main dish. Mix spinach, tomatoes, shredded crabmeat, sweet onions, and a hardboiled egg, and season with the herbs and spices of your choice.

DINNER

Stir Fry
A good old stir fry is a great paleo dinner recipe. Simply stir fry some boneless sirloin steak with carrots, onions, mushrooms, peppers, celery, and garlic, and add a splash of lemon juice at the end.

Tuna salad
This tuna salad takes minutes to put together and tastes heavenly. Mix some tuna with olives, jalapenos, capers, avocado, kale, and onion, and if you like it spicy, add some chili flakes. Goes well with mushroom skewers too!

Pork chops
Add more flavour to pork chops by dipping them in coconut oil and almond flour before cooking them. Serve with a sweetcorn and chipotle salad.

Fish sticks and beets
Use leftover white fish to make some fish sticks and serve them with a side of roasted beetroots drenched in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

SNACKS

Kale chips
Healthy and tasty, these chips take 10 minutes to prepare and are a treat anytime of the day.

Pistachio dates
Stuff some dates with a mix made of ground pistachio, orange juice, and the zest of an orange. Simple and yummy!
