Being on a paleo diet means you only eat foods that would have been available to paleolithic humans – primarily meat, fish, veggies and fruit. Advocates of the paleo diet say it is a more natural balance of foods that our bodies are genetically designed to eat. Since modern agriculture and animal breeding are relatively new developments in the human diet, compared to the paleolithic era which lasted 2.5 million years, supporters say our bodies have not had enough time to adapt to the new variety of foods people consume today.
The paleo diet is low in additives and chemical preservatives that are found in processed foods. The diet essentially consists of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, and some healthy fats. Foods that must be cut out of the diet entirely are dairy like milk and cheese, grains, sugars, processed foods, legumes, starches and alcohol.
Living on a paleo diet means you’ll have a limited selection of frozen food and ready-made meals that adhere to the rules. Processed foods are strictly forbidden, but since most people just don’t have enough time to always prepare a proper meal, the convenience of frozen foods can be alluring enough to pull someone off the program.
Ice Age Meals are a delicious line of gourmet frozen foods that comply with paleo guidelines. Choices include Butternut Squash Lasagna (no cheese), Thai Meatball Curry, Chicken Tikka Masala, Breakfast Pizza, Tri-Tip, Ribs and more. They also offer a number of value packages (12-48 meals) which include samplers of different menu items within a theme like “The All-American” or “The International”. All Ice Age Meals start with grass-fed organic meats raised on family farms.
