This Holiday Season, Start 2013 Like Our Ancestors Did 10,000 Years Ago
Massachusetts-Based Company Now Offers “Cave to Table” Cuisine
Says Rebecca Scanlon, CEO of Your Chef Next Door, “I’ve been following a Paleo diet for years now. I’ve lost weight and feel healthier than I have ever before. Many people want to follow the plan, but their lives are so much busier than those of cavemen and cavewomen. We decided to simplify the diet, delivering great-tasting Paleo meals directly to people’s homes.”
The diet, which has been proven to combat high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, is based on eating plants and animals similar to what cavemen are presumed to have eaten around 10,000 years ago. For example, lean meat, organ meats, fish, poultry, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and nuts are permitted, but the diet discourages consuming any dairy, grains, sugar, legumes, potatoes, processed oils, and foods grown after agriculture started. A typical “meal” from Your Chef Next Door’s Positively Primal menu consists of a protein and two vegetable or Paleo-approved sides. This may include:
· Almond Crusted Salmon topped with fresh cilantro
· Orange Chicken with shredded beets
· Zucchini Noodles with house made marinara, and sausage.
· Blackened Mahi-Mahi with asparagus and olive tapenade
· Flank Steak Roulade- stuffed with spinach, zucchini, red pepper and bacon.
· Roasted Lamb with blackberry sauce
Customers will receive a 15% discount every time they order from the Positively Primal menu throughout the entire month of January, and the first 50 people who order get a free “Get Positively Primal” tee shirt. The tees are also available for sale on Your Chef Next Door’s website (http://www.yourchefnextdoor.com/
The program is also being marketed to gyms and health clubs in Massachusetts. Trainers have long been fans of the Paleo diet because of its impact on energy levels and emphasis on clean, simple nutrition.
For consumers who prefer to eat like 2013 homo sapiens, a full range of meal programs are also available on the website.
“We’re bringing great healthy food from our cave to your table!’” proclaims Scanlon who co-founded Your Chef Next Door with her brother, Chef Chris Moran. All meals are prepared by Chef Moran, who graduated from the French Culinary Institute and who has over fifteen years of restaurant experience.
