Why Paleo?

Think of your body like a machine. It needs fuel that sustains and strengthens throughout the day, not just something to fill the tank without giving the machine energy. Most of the food marketed to us today is cooked, bleached, dyed and processed until it has no life anymore; it just doesn’t fuel and sustain the body. In fact, it does just the opposite: it can make you feel tired and sluggish, mess up sleep patterns, cause inflammation and overall create an environment that nurtures illness in the body. Paleo means leaving all the labels and numbers behind and going back to the basics.

Afraid that Paleo is another new fad diet with more restrictions and numbers to follow? You have absolutely nothing to worry about! We aren’t trying to convince you to give up your favorite foods to lose weight in a short amount of time or obsess over the numbers and amounts you eat; we’re trying to get you back to the real, natural foods your body was created to consume. Eating Paleo simply means that instead of filling our bodies with those inflammatory foods, we only use ingredients that we can find in nature: lean meats, good fats, lots of veggies, and some nuts, seeds, and fruit. Paleo eater and health blogger Heather Morgan puts it simply: “Every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it.” You choose sugar, and you’re going to feed illness. You choose good fat, and you’re killing illness.

Paleo is simply bringing back REAL food. It isn’t about restrictions, or counting numbers in your food or on the scale. You tailor it to your body’s needs, and eat as much or as little as you need to perform. Eating well is about changing how you live… you’ll be able to perform better, sleep better, have clearer skin, more energy, and a happier, healthy body. It’s all about filling your body with foods that nourish it, not deplete it.

And at the Paleo Foods Café, we make it delicious. Biscuits and gravy, donuts and coffee… and you’re STILL ready to go tackle a workout. Why WOULDN’T you go Paleo?

It’s Naturally Good

We all have that one friend who eats nothing but a plain salad for lunch every day, sadly explaining that they’re “trying to eat better”. So many people think “healthy” means eating less, or only eating veggies, or giving up tasty food to lose weight. Just restricting and limiting does not equal healthy!

At Paleo Foods Café, we want you to be strong, healthy and thriving. We also love yummy food, too. Afraid you’d have to give up your favorite foods to eat clean? We use locally sourced, honest ingredients to make chocolate smoothies, vanilla lattes, brownies, cookies, and even breakfast pizza! We even have a menu just for kids, which includes sausage biscuits and cinnamon toast waffles. Eating healthy does not mean that everything has to be green and taste like grass, and it doesn’t even mean you have to give up chocolate!

Paleo isn’t only healthy, it’s totally delicious. Have fun with it!
