This recipe is paleo friendly, is an example of cooking with coconut and is a healthy snack idea. The paleo diet which is also nicknamed the caveman diet, the primal diet, the Stone Age diet, and the hunter-gatherer diet is hugely popular these days. So you have to ask yourself, what would a caveman eat? The Paleo diet is in line with the same foods that the hunter-gather ancestors supposedly ate with simple ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, seafood, meats, and nuts. The Paleo diet is one of the healthiest ways you can eat because it is the nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay energetic, strong, and lean. It is said that the modern diet, which is full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility. And the paleo diet is a much more healthy alternative to what's bad in the modern diet.

It seems these days that more and more people are trying to follow a grain free and gluten free diet. With that said you have to wonder what it is about grains that can cause damage? The reason many people choose to stay away from grains is that our bodies are not adapted to eating grains, especially in large quantities. Grains have only been a part of humans diets since the advent of agriculture, which is about 10,000 years ago, and while that may seem like a long time, in an evolutionary standpoint, it’s really not all that long. This is because it takes a long time to affect the genes, tens of thousands of years. So if you are thinking about cutting down on your grain intake, you can make all sorts of gluten-free dishes using ingredients such as zucchini for zucchini noodles, squash for pasta, eggplant, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and cauliflower to name a few. These are healthy alternatives, and they are a good way to get more vegetables into your diet.
