I have been trying to follow Jack Kruse leptin reset prescription. Recently he added another layer to the story with his Epi-Paleo Diet. In Jack’s Epi- Paleo Diet prescription he explains that we are biologically designed to eat a diet made up primarily of raw sea foods. Briefly, in this diet he recommends we eat at least 1/2 pound or 225 grams of seafood a day.
The focus is mainly on eating the seafood raw, with oysters being his number one recommendation. On his new Epi-paleo food pyramid we have the base made up of oysters and other shellfish. The next best choice is from the crustacean family e. g. shrimps, prawns, lobster and crab. Then fish, followed by offal from grass fed animals then meat from grass fed animals, then free-range pastured eggs and finally nuts and seeds.
Also, it is recommended that you avoid all vegetables from the nightshade family e.g. tomatoes, potatoes, chilies, peppers and aubergines (eggplant). Avoid eating legumes. Sea vegetables should be added to your diet which basically means finding a supply of edible seaweed.
All this leaves me with a problem, I’m not that keen on eating fish, all the fish sections of my cookery books have remained unread. As a child fish always came either in batter from the fish and chip shop or in perfect fingers shapes covered in breadcrumbs, occasionally for a treat at Sunday teatimes Mum would open a can of tinned red salmon which we made into sandwiches.
I have eaten whole fish in Portugal I like the red snapper they catch fresh there, simply grilled on a charcoal barbecue so I’m not really squeamish I can cope with heads and bones. I just can’t imagine eating raw oysters but never say never. I want to keep an open mind and my aim is for this year is to actually eat a raw oyster…… gulp!
I’m certainly going to try to follow the Epi-Paleo diet as much as possible. So I thought the best way to consume this large amount of food would be to kind of mash a load of seafood together and cook it in the oven to make a fish loaf this the link to the page with my Epi-Paleo Diet fish loaf recipe.
