Everything's Fresh Here at The Cave.
I have been a lover of food all of my life. I used to love watching my Grandmother make my favourite Ukrainian dishes and her baking was sublime. I always made sure I watched how she created those amazing delights.
Then one day, I decided I wanted to be a chef. I went to Culinary school and started my journey, but not without it's bumps in the road.
I also loved sports and coaching. That became a huge part of my life, so I put the dream of being a chef on hold. I never gave up my passion for cooking though, always trying new recipes and cooking family meals with my mother. It was just hibernating!!
WHAT IS PALEO EATING?
For those not familiar with Paleo eating, here is a brief explanation:
Basically, "If the cavemen didn't eat it, neither should you".
Paleo eating runs on the same foods our hunter-gather ancestors supposedly ate: fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, and nuts. "By following these nutritional guidelines, we put our diet more in line with the evolutionary pressures that shaped our current genetics, which in turn positively influences health and well being," says Loren Cordain, PhD, professor of health and exercise science at Colorado State University and author of The Paleo Diet. He says the diet lessens the body's glycemic load, has a healthy ratio of saturated-to-unsaturated fatty acids, increases vitamin and nutrient consumption, and contains an optimal balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
The biggest question I always get is "Does it still taste good?" My answer is "Of course it does!!" You can still enjoy most of things you love to eat, just in a healthier way. In most cases, you will never be able to tell that there is no processed food, refined sugars, gluten and/or dairy in what you are eating.
That is the beauty of The Cave!
