Kinda just made this recipe up today! And it's delicious!

 

4 Apples (I had 4 green, but from previous applesauce making experiences the more variety, the better) cut into cubes (you can keep the skin on)

3 or 4 medjool dates, cut into small pieces (remove the seed ;) )

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 teaspoons cinnamon (or to taste)

water

 

Add enough water to an medium to large skillet to fill the bottom of it. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Turn heat on to medium. Add apples, cinnamon and dates. Cook until the apples are soft then smash them until they're the consistency you like. This takes about 30 minutes, you may need to add more water as you go along as well (if the apples aren't cooked through and the water has evaporated...add more water) I like chunky applesauce. 

 

Enjoy!

Why is it called paleo? Is it an old recipe?

No--it's just like a "lifestyle" diet. Paleo Diet. Like a whole foods diet. I eat fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables, meat, eggs, small amount of dairy, natural sources of sweeteners (pure maple syrup, raw honey (truly raw honey)). I don't eat processed foods (including bread), beans/legumes etc. Now when I go out to eat, which is maybe twice a month, I do eat some processed foods--ya gotta live a little! lol  I've eaten this way for a little over a year. Lost nearly 50lbs. I don't recommend it for everyone...but I really like it. It's been good for me.

Well, if it's doing you good stick to it. also think that too much processed food is bad for you. I've never heard of the paleo diet though, but the prefix paleo- does mean 'old', so maybe it's means going back to a way of life before we had processed foods.

Yes it does...I don't believe all the rational behind the diet...but it does refer to the "paleolithic era"
