Shortened from the word paleolithic, the paleo diet, also known as the Stone Age diet, is considered to be one of the healthiest in the world. With a focus on meats and vegetables, the foundation for a paleo diet is based on eating only foods that were available before the existence of agriculture and were unable to be refined. This fall the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) is offering two sessions on both sweet and savory paleo cooking. On Sunday, October 27th, 2013 Juli Bauer the founder of PaleOMG is traveling all the way from Denver, CO to show students that healthy food can be just as delicious in the new class, “The Primal Palate with PaleOMG.”
The paleo diet’s fundamental basis lies within the notion that during the Paleolithic Age the ancient human diet consisted of wild plants and animals. It has been adapted for modern times to provide proper nourishment through the consumption of grass fed meats, fish, fruits, nuts, and vegetables, while excluding grains, potato, dairy, refined sugars, and processed oils. Juli doesn’t follow the paleo restrictions because of the science, but has found that it has greatly improved her digestion and all around health. In addition to her off-beat sense of humor students who sign up for either the sweet class from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., savory class from 2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. or both, will learn some of Juli’s favorite recipes and meal preparation tricks including how to create lighter versions of comfort foods such as chicken pot pie, the best meatballs you'll ever taste, a moist and delicious herb pork roast with bourbon gravy and yes, even fried chicken.
