February: Heart Health Month
Here’s a sobering fact: approximately 84 million Americans suffer from cardiovascular disease with approximately 655,000 deaths annually from heart disease alone.
It makes sense that you’d want to stick to a heart-friendly diet… but it’s easier said than done! To be honest, the more info you gather, the more confusing things get. Should you eat eggs? Should you give up on meat? Is all cholesterol EVIL?
So. Many. Questions.
Eating healthy is hard work. But it doesn’t need to be. Science is finally starting to understand the benefits of a well-formulated Paleo diet.
- There are two types of cholesterol: LDL (“bad”) & HDL (“good”)
- A Paleo diet reduces blood pressure, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, BMI, waist circumference, and hip-to-waist ratio
- A Paleo diet also boosts HDL (the ‘good’ cholesterol) and improves elasticity in your arterial wall
Our Pete’s Paleo meals are based on whole, minimally processed food. Not only does our menu change on a weekly basis with the seasons, but we also change that menu based on what our farmers grow and harvest out of the ground that very week we cook it.
Our chef-cooked meals are perfectly balanced so that you can keep all those macros (protein, fats, carbs) in check. Get them delivered to your door every week and you’ll never have to worry about cooking healthy again!
Got special dietary restrictions? No worries, we’ve got your back!
A Paleo diet can protect your heart, while also allowing you to enjoy all the foods you like. Give it a go today… and thank us later!
