A good deal of our clients are "clean diet" consumers. Equally a number of clients use us because of our welfare standards. Almost all of our clients stay with us becuase of the taste and eating quality.
For those that have been following the blogs you may have noticed various new terms creeping in. For example Paleo or Primal, particularly in our tweets. But what is Paleo?
I like to refer to Robb Wolf who is a former research biochemist. In his words "Paleo is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the only nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic! Research in biology, biochemistry, ophthalmology, dermatology and many other disciplines indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, depression and infertility".
In essence the Paleo way of eating advocates consuming lean proteins, loads of vegetables, healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, fish oil and grass-fed meat and fruits.
It excludes dairy, grains, processed foods and sugars, starches and alcohol.
Why does it work? The general premise is that our bodies have not changed since paleolithic times and we have not evolved to digest the foods modern farming has made available. Far from being faddy it concludes that it is the more recent reliance on processed sugars and grains which are the novel foods and eating a diet which is closer to that which we are naturally evolved to eat is more beneficial to our wellbeing.
During 2014 I will include in our newsletters the latest thinking on what this could mean to you and your family.
