For those who have yet to discover the stone age diet, it is a diet that uses the ingredients that were available to people when we were hunter gatherers. It allows for ingredients that can be picked, gathered, and hunted. This is the diet that we evolved to, and this is the main reason that it is cited as the recipe that is most suited to our bodies. If ever one hears anyone describe this diet as the most recent in a long line of fad diets then this is the line that should be spoke in reply: this is the oldest diet known to man, and the one our bodies are most prepared for.
Here are two stone age diet recipes that one could make to start their day in a fantastic way. These two recipes would be a great way to introduce the diet to oneself as well as beginning the day. One is a smoothie and one is a scramble. Enjoy:
A stone age smoothie
A handful of spinach leaves
A few sprigs of fresh mint and parsley
A two centimeter piece of fresh ginger
The juice from one lime
Two tablespoons of melted coconut oil
One tablespoon of hemp seeds
One cup of natural coconut milk
One kiwi, peeled
Almond milk, for thinning
Combine the ingredients in a blender, and serve when the mixture is smooth.
An egg and vegetable scramble
Coconut or olive oil to be used for frying
One finely chopped red pepper, chopped into cubes
One small white onion, finely chopped
One garlic clove, finely chopped
One half of a green chili, finely chopped and deseeded
One small sweet potato, finely chopped into cubes
Two high quality and gluten free sausages, chopped into bite-size pieces
Five large beaten free range eggs
One large handful of spinach
A little fresh parsley
A pinch of sea salt and a pinch of freshly cracked black pepper
One large ripe avocado that has been lengthways sliced
Heat some of the chosen oil in a frying pan and add the chopped sausage. Fry this for about five or so minutes, stirring the sausage constantly.
Add the onion, the pepper, the chili, and the garlic into the hot pan, and cook them for aboout five minutes so that the ingredients are beginning to incorporate the flavor of the cooking sausage and the oil. Then one can add the sweet potato. Stir until the sweet potato is nearly cooked all the way through.
Add the eggs with the spinach leaves, stirring the mixture thoroughly. Season the scramble with salt and pepper to taste when the eggs have finished cooking and the spinach leaves have wilted.
After serving the scramble in bowls, serve a side bowl of avocado topped with parsley.
