Is that Paleo?


It’s usually a funny joke we throw around the house, “is that Paleo?”  We wear it on t-shirts and have gifts with the phrase on it.  But this time, I really have to ask, “Is that paleo?”  As I’m looking around for some green bell pepper recipes (our secret ingredient tonight!), I saw a link to the new stem cell burger.  For real, that is not paleo (firstly because they had to add bread and other things to make it more burger-like and secondly, it’s franken meat).  One of the most basic reasons our bodies enjoy meat is because we’ve been consuming it for hundreds of thousands of years worth of genetics.  We receive great nutrition from meat where you cannot imitate the value;  whether or not you feel bad for animals is irrelevant when comparing this nutritional value. The bottom line is health and wellness has shown to be more successful when you go back to food that is natural, not man made; anything imitated is just not the same (just look at cheeze whiz = FRANKEN CHEEZE).

My Favorite burger Joints:

1. Bubs Burgers – just meat. no bun. so good.

2. Bloomingfood’s Nick’s Burger – Grill it at home!!

3. Scotty’s – I’ll get it with a side of broccoli and fruit.  I cut up the burger and have a broccoli burger stir fry!

4.  Upland – I’ll get it with a side salad. The orange ginger vinegarette is very good.
