Everyday Paleo

Everyday Paleo

I borrowed Everyday Paleo by Sarah Fragoso, a book of paleo recipes, from the library a few weeks ago; and I liked so many of them that I just had to purchase a book of my own.

If you aren’t familiar with the paleo lifestyle, it’s just eating good healthy foods instead of eating processed foods.

All digestible carbohydrates are broken down to simple sugars in the intestines. The sugar is absorbed into the blood, raising the blood glucose. This increases the production of the hormone insulin. And insulin is our fat storing hormone.
