Using Coconut Oil With The Paleo Diet

'Our very own Lucy Bee Coconut Oil is Paleo Diet-friendly and often very popular with Paleo foodies. Why? Well, quite simple, our coconut oil is about as natural and unprocessed as you can get.'

Of all the diets you’ve probably thought about following, the Paleo diet is the one everyone’s talking about right now. Surf the web, pore over recipe books, or flip the pages on health magazines, and it’s everywhere – it seems the Paleo diet is here to stay. Because of their natural and unprocessed qualities, certain coconut oil products are perfect for the paleo diet.

What’s the Paleo Diet?

Also thought of as the Caveman Diet or the Primal Diet, eating Paleo involves eating or cooking only what nature’s given us. Put simply, if you couldn’t hunt or find it all those centuries ago, then you can’t eat it. 

Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? And, really, it is. The Paleo Diet bases its thinking on our genetics and the way our body was developed to eat, way before the dawn of fast food chains, pick and mix and ready meals.

You see, a very long time ago, our ancestors thrived as hunter-gatherers. They were muscular, athletic and incredibly agile. Now, where we can eat pretty much anything we choose, we’re increasingly becoming obese, unhealthy and unhappy.

So, what changed? If you believe in the Paleo Diet, farming. With the dawn of agriculture, we stopped being hunter-gatherers and became farmers instead. This means we’ve started eating more and more grains, which Paleo followers believe our bodies never properly adjusted to.
