BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- If you want to cook like a caveman a la the Paleo Diet but your recipe repertoire is too stuck in the 21st century to figure out how, you can test-drive the Stone Age way of eating by taking the Paleo Challenge from online meal planning service eMeals. Simply go to www.emeals.com/meal-plans/paleo/, click on 'View Sample,' and download a week's worth of Paleo Diet dinner menus and shopping lists free of charge. If you like the Paleo regimen, you can have new Paleo menus from eMeals delivered to your email inbox every week for as little as $5 a month.
You'll get healthy, easy-to-prepare Paleo recipes focusing on meat, fish, shellfish, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, tree nuts and seeds, and healthy fats, eliminating off-limits items like processed foods, grains, dairy, sugar, legumes and potatoes. (Help! No pizza! No pasta! No three-bean chili on Football Sundays!) Highlights of the free sample plan include:
- Grilled Tilapia Fillets with Cilantro Pesto and Grilled Mexican Squash
- Crustless Herbed Quiche with Tomato Basil Salad
- Maple Glazed Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potato Wedges
- Pork Tenderloin with Peach Salsa and Peppery Slaw
- Blackened Skirt Steak with BLT Salad
Proponents of this hunter-gatherer diet argue that it can reduce the risk of modern diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, as well as improve athletic performance. That's why many hard-core fitness fans like ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes and adherents of the CrossFit high-intensity strength and conditioning program go Paleo or close to it.
"The Paleo Diet is a good fit for endurance athletes but it's challenging for the modern cook," said Karnazes, a renowned endurance athlete and New York Times best-selling author who was hailed by Men's Fitness as one of the fittest men on the planet. "eMeals' Paleo Plan helps get people on the right track and keep them there. It's easy: all you have to do is follow the shopping lists and the recipes. It completely takes the pain out of Paleo meal planning."
