On my resent visit to the doctor’s, I was told that my iron and vitamin D levels are low. She “suggested” that I try the “paleo diet.” I’m sure you all know what it is by now. Everyone is doing it or talking about it, so I’m not going to explain. She feels that it will force me to eat more protein. Also, with some resent health issues, it might be a good idea to cut our sugar. I laughed at the absurdity!! How dare she tell an Italian girl to stop eating pasta & Nutella!!! She’s irrational!
As irrational as I may think she is, it’s something I need to do. I need to find out if this will help my health issues. I figure if I eat paleo at least 80-90% of the time, I’m still ahead of the game. Because of this change in my diet, you may on occasion find recipes posted on Diva Eats World that are paleo friendly, like this one.
The mango salsa is a great summertime dish. I love it paired with seafood, pork or as a dip. Since my husband isn’t eating paleo, I made him a side of coconut rice! It was all yummy!
