Recipe: (Paleo) Blood-Sugar-Balancing Banana Muffins
By now, if you have been following my work for quite some time you will know that I am not a fan of fad diets. However, I don't consider the "paleo" diet to be a fad diet. Why? Because it is simply based on eating a healthy combination of ALL macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) from clean, whole-food sources. This is at the foundation of everything I believe in for optimum health and for the body to be able to carry out its natural functions (ie; weight management, sleep, blood-sugar balance, hormone-balancing, etc.)
