Work Out Wednesday – Food In Your Food




The Who, What, Where, When & Why of my fitness regime









Food In Your Food 

For the past several weeks I’ve been following a Paleolithic style diet.  Now before I go any further I would like to point out that while I do very well on a high-protein, low-carb diet.  It may not be for everyone. 

Throughout my career, I have always been conscious of what I eat and the amount of treats I consume (see Diet FAQ & The Baconator), and so body wise, this regiment hasn’t changed my lifestyle very greatly.  It has however boosted my energy levels and made me feel better able to take on my crazy circus work outs 😉 



“The Paleo Diet is based upon eating wholesome foods from the food groups our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have thrived on during the Paleolithic era.  These food include fresh meats, fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthful oils.”  – thepaleodiet.com

Devotees to the diet, will also favour grass-fed or free range meats, and eggs, and avoid dairy products, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars and processed foods. 

Of course any “diet” will tell you to cut out sugars and processed foods. Most will even tell you to watch how much fat you consume daily.  For my part, I have merely cleaned up my regular style of eating, and replaced some of the extras, with items like apples, and well, meat.  

I was often guilty of not having enough “food in my food”, and this diet has forced me to pay more attention to the nutritional density of the items I consume, and to up my protein count considerably.  
So this week, rather than a work out – I’m offering up an alternative to regular bread, that some of my paleo friends shared with me.  

“Paleo Bread”
Note: It’s vegetarian!  


*1 c Nut butter (we used peanut butter)
*3 eggs
*1/8 honey
1 tsp baking soda
Mix together/whip 

Add 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 

350 degrees  40 min


*Note – these ingredients are calorically dense, and as such I do not recommend paleo bread as a replacement for sliced bread.  However, if you are sticking to a strict wheat free, paleo, or gluten free diet, it’s a nice way to enjoy something warm and home baked 🙂
Looks like bread.  Tastes bread-like.  Must be bread.

At the end of the day, I’ll leave it with you to research the pros and cons of the Paleo diet, and compare and contrast it with other dietary options.  Remember – whatever plan you follow, the key to eating healthfully is moderation.
