Following the Caveman Diet is difficult. Leading a gluten-free life is also a challenge. Combining the two? Some would suggest that’s all but impossible.
In fact, that’s not the case. The Paleo diet actually is very friendly with the gluten-free lifestyle, since it eschews the modern processed products that wreak so much havoc. And these Gluten Free Cookbooks have enough recipes to make preparing meals not only healthy, but simple, delicious and nutritious as well.
There are a number of benefits to a gluten free diet. It can help decrease cholesterol levels and increase energy, while helping to lose weight and ease digestion problems. Many turn to it for health reasons because they can’t process gluten at all, but increasingly there are others who are attracted to the diet because of the perceived health benefits.
The cavemen would approve. Cavemen diets are by nature gluten free, since the grains weren’t domesticated at the time of early man. Because our ancestors didn’t consume gluten as part of its early diet, it’s very possible that this has led modern humanity to be unable to process it efficiently, or in some cases at all.
However, one of the common complaints about gluten free eating is the effort. It’s not like you can grab a ready-to-eat meal from a fast food place, or grab that bag of French fries from the lunch counter. Though more and more establishments offer gluten free selections, some of that depends on where you are and the options aren’t always enticing. Gluten free dining may seem like one of those concepts that is a great idea for someone with loads of time on their hands, but not suited to the modern-day lifestyle.
But like much of the Caveman lifestyle, we’re finding that a lot of the old ways may indeed still be the best. And with these cookbooks, they’re also simple. Most recipes here combine a few simple ingredients in ways that offer the pleasure of far more complex (and less healthy) options elsewhere.
This isn’t a book that’s solely the obvious items (like “Carrots: Wash and Eat.”). The Pistachio Salsa, for example, is easy, tasty, and fancy-looking enough to bring with you to any potluck. It’s easy on both your taste buds and your stomach.
The good thing is that you don’t have to wait forever for this to arrive by mail, or head out to your local bookstore to find it. It’s an electronic book, and you can download it immediately and be trying out the new recipes in time for dinner. And if you order now, it currently comes with a bonus 30-day Paleo Cookbook meal plan, plus access to the first edition of the Paleo Cookbooks, which makes it even easier to avoid gluten and adhere to the Caveman Diet at the same time.

CAVEMENWORLD’s independent, investigative journalism and graphics take a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.
