My long time friend Beverly who is an extremely knowledgeable clinical nutritionist who lives in San Antonio, TX was kind enough to have me on her wonderful Podcast to talk about the healthy aspects of the Mediterranean Diet and what they have in common with the Paleo diet. We talked about what the real Mediterranean diet consists of and what people in North America are missing from their diets that can support health.
Highlights of the podcast:
- How the Mediterranean Diet Came about
- What are some flaws with the program
- What are some commonalities between Mediterranean Diet and Paleo
- What are some lifestyle habits that people in the Mediterranean have that we are missing out out on
- Some cooking tips

Great features of Mediterranean Paleo Cooking:
- The book lends itself to find-your-niche recipe hunting, by first following basic Paleo principles. Then it’s easy to find egg-free, nut-free, AIP (Autoimmune Paleo Protocol), Low Carb, or SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and FODMAP substitutions.
- There are 30 Day Meal Plans for regular Paleo and for AIP. These come with Shopping Lists.
- The health benefits and features of real Mediterranean cuisine are described for us by Caitlin, as additions to Chef Boumrar’s recipes.
- There are 20 sugar-free desserts and they all look great. There’s a simple apricot ice cream (with coconut milk) that looks easy and delicious.
- The authentic Moroccan slow-cooked Tajines can be made in a stock pot, so no special equipment is needed for anything here. It’s simple and relaxed food all the way!
- There are multiple fresh cauliflower recipes to use in place of rice, couscous, chickpeas (for humus) and more.
- Spicy foods. Aromatic foods. Great desserts with options for thickeners and sweeteners.
- Chef Nabil’s talent for showing us supremely savory foods that are easy to prepare is really all the Special Feature you need….
