This week I had the pleasure of hosting a group of moms and their children to celebrate the end of the school year - I called it the One Smart Cookie party. (I will be sharing this awesome party soon...)
Each mother was asked to bring 1 doz of their favorite cookies to share with everyone. One of the moms brought delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies - they were good....then she pulled out another cookie from her bag - they resembled Chocolate Chip Cookies - but there was something different about them - BACON!
Here is where she found this delicious recipe: The Food Lovers Kitchen
You see my friend is following this way of eating called The Paleo Diet. Have you heard of it? I did not until she educated me on it! Fascinating really. (not for me as I love my carbs...)
The gist of the diet is this:
The paleolithic-style diet follows the premise that our genetic predisposition to food has not changed for 2 million years. Basically, modern civilization is eating foods that attack and compromise our cave dweller bodies. Proof of the theory lies in the study of the remaining hunter-gatherer civilizations of the world where diseases, ailments and obesity are not plagues. Fossil records showing the onset of infectious diseases provide further evidence.
