NEW! Paleo Diet - Is It for You?
The Paleolithic diet, often referred to as the caveman diet is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals. It emphasizes fresh foods that are nutrient dense, containing many naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. The Paleo diet avoids grain-based foods and processed, less nutritional foods. This is not just a weight loss fad diet, it will reduce inflammatory disease risks, and increase energy and muscle. This class will help those who are ready for a radical change of dietary and lifestyle habits, get radical results. Suzanne will demonstrate how to create delicious dishes that fit the Paleo dietary plan including dessert, which the class will sample.
