Why even is the Paleo Diet so popular lately? Second, is it good for you? And how can you “eat like a caveman”, in this day and age (Paleo)?

In a nutshell, the Paleo diet is designed to resemble how human hunter-gatherer ancestors (I think “caveman” sounds cooler) ate thousands of years ago. You are allowed to consume meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, healthy fats, etc. while avoiding processed food such as legumes, dairy, grains, artificial sweeteners (Read more about Paleo Diet Here). However, there is no “right” way or one-size-fits-all way when it comes to diet. That’s why I don’t follow or promote any strict diets. A bowl of paleo vegan avocado hummus and crackers. There are avocado cubes and cilantro on top. Living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just what you eat. I have simple guidelines to help myself develop an eating habit that makes ME feel good. For example, I meal prep lots of whole foods: vegetables, sweet potatoes, quality meat on the weekend. So I can quickly assemble healthy and wholesome lunch or dinner instead of eating out or getting hangry and reach out for junk snacks. Anyway… Back to WHAT makes this avocado hummus Paleo: There are no Chickpeas! I used steamed cauliflower instead. It creates a lighter and creamier texture. Moreover, just like most other hummus recipes, this version is Vegan-Friendly.

How to make whole30 Hummus

Instruction on how to make whole30 friendly chickpea free avocado hummus. There are two blenders photos taken at different times, one before blending, one after blending. As much as I love chickpeas (I love some Pesto with chickpea pasta and fluffy pancakes made with almond and chickpea flour), it can make me bloated. And of course, chickpeas are not considered paleo. In the spirit of the whole30 January, I found the perfect replacement for chickpeas in this paleo and vegan hummus recipe (scroll down to check out the full ingredient list). Instead of chickpeas, I used steamed cauliflower. If you are skeptical, trust me, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all. This is why steamed cauliflower is one of my staples when it comes to sneaking veggies into recipes. I even use it in smoothies to sneak in some added nutrients and I love to make cauliflower gnocchi like the one Trader Joe’s has. This Paleo Avocado Hummus recipe is the perfect, satisfying snack when the munchies strike. If you are following a Vegan, Keto, or Whole30 diet, this recipe is a MUST to add to your appetizer list.
