There was a study more than a decade ago conducted by Dr. Stephen Rennard, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha. In this study, he investigated why his wife’s chicken soup recipe, which was handed down through generations, has healing properties. Using blood samples of volunteers, he concluded that the soup inhibited the movement of neutrophils (the most common infection-fighting white blood cells) and this restriction in movement helps reduce upper respiratory cold symptoms.
Starch is avoided in Paleo eating. No to corn products, no to potatoes (sweet potatoes are exempted), no to rice and bread including pasta so the answer to the question is “No.” How are we gonna have spaghetti without pasta you ask?
So what’s difficult about frying bacon and eggs? Well, today we are gonna get a little bit creative. We are going to shape the bacon into cups and have the eggs in as a filling. Think of this as a combination of a Pinterest project and a Buzzfeed food test. Now, commence baconization!
Baked zucchini has a really subtle taste and the flavor will depend on what you put on it. This opens a world of experimentation. A friend added jerky seasoning, my cousin added cinnamon (ikr?!) and one guy added a combination of nutmeg and cumin. Sounds weird to me but I’m always open to new things, I might give it a try!
Speaking of comfort food, the earliest known usage of term “comfort food” was traced back to 1966 when the Palm Beach Post (a major American daily newspaper which serves Palm Beach County in South Florida and the area of Treasure Coast) used it in a story: “Adults, when under severe emotional stress, turn to what could be called ‘comfort food’—food associated with the security of childhood, like mother’s poached egg or famous chicken soup.”
Today’s recipe is all about fruit and herb-infused water. One might ask, why do that instead of just drinking fruit juice? Basically, you can choose any fruit / herb combination.

There is only 1 rule in Paleo diet meats: if it used to make a sound (moo, oink, baa, pika-pi, mee), then it is Paleo-friendly. You’ll be glad to hear that almost all meats are Paleo except of course for the highly-processed meats liked canned meat (spam, corned beef, canned sausages, burgers), hotdogs, and other types of low quality meats. Bacon is also Paleo provided it didn’t go through heavy processing and doesn’t contain additional nitrites/nitrates and sweeteners. Going to a butcher shop where meats are cut on site is your best bet in getting the unprocessed ones.
