Homemade Paleo Diet Food

The modern dietary regimen known as the paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era - a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture.

To sum up this diet: you only eat what could be hunted and gathered such as meat, fish, nuts, seeds, plants, vegetables, or fruits. Nothing processed or in a box and NO grains!

The theory is that we have only been eating grains for a mere 10,000 years since the beginning of agriculture, but we have a digestive system that was formed over 2 million years ago. We are not genetically programmed to eat grains.

I have been trying to eliminate grains from my diet to see if a certain autoimmune disorder I have clears up, namely psoriasis. I can eat a sandwich without bread, but what I really miss in the morning is cereal.

Try finding a cereal without grain! So I did try and found this: Paleo Crunch. Now it's not a bad price and it gets good reviews but I knew I could make this myself.

I did a google search for "homemade paleo diet food" and found this recipe on a photographer's site.

Here's the recipe with a few modifications:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cup raw slivered or chopped almonds
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup Agave nectar
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 325. In large bowl add dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and combine well. Spread thin on baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. Stir and bake another 5 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5-10 minutes in pan.

Not only is this a grain less cereal, it's high in good fat and one of the best cereals I have ever had! It holds its crunch in milk (yeah I know, milk isn't on the paleo diet list...too bad!), it's sweet and extremely crunchy - everything I want in a cereal!
