Paleo slow cooker recipes

01:46 Posted by Dhaval Bhandari
Some proponents of the paleo slow cooker recipes try to mimic the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors down to the plant-to-animal food ratio. Though there is some debate about the perfect ratio, most researchers suggest that hunter-gatherer societies subsist on a diet that is composed of 64% to 68% calories from animal sources and the remaining 32% to 36% from plant sources. Protein plays a very important role in the Paleo diet and poultry sources such as chicken and turkey are very high in protein. When selecting poultry for use in Paleo diet snacks recipes look for lean cuts of chicken or turkey that comes from free-range birds. If possible, stick to white-meat, skinless breasts to receive the optimal nutritional value with the least amount of fat.
