Paleo nutrition – a way to increase egg health?
In short, “paleo” is translated from the Greek word, palaios, meaning “ancient” or “very old.”
As a nutritional style, it represents the entire food spectrum eaten by our ancestors throughout the Stone Age (this broad historic period lasted over 3 million years, compare that with last 150 years of industrial food revolution).
Basically, any food that you can fish, hunt, pick or dig out with a stick is probably a good Paleo meal. Paleo is a very simple, often raw food eating style, particularly well-suited for those who love meat.
How to eat Paleo to increase fertility
- Meat should only come from organically raised and pasture-fed animals living under conditions that match, as closely as possible, their natural environment. Even better would be to stick with wild game or fresh fish.
- Vegetables can be eaten in all varieties, colors, and from all seasons, especially all rooted or stock vegetables, which are a great source of carbohydrates.
- Fruits are also welcome, but only seasonal and in limited quantities. Sweets must be avoided, with rare exceptions, such as consuming honey. Honey too should come from a local bee-keeper if possible, because it then contains traces of pollen from plants growing in your neighborhood, which can help strengthen the immune system in women sensitive to allergies.
