The Paleo diet is based on the idea that we should go back to our evolutionary roots as hunter/gatherers to recapture health and vitality. Despite a lack of medicine and technology, early man was a powerful, vital creature with few health issues. Paleo advocates contend that the health issues began to arise with the development of agriculture and the difficulty our bodies had in dealing with these new grains. The adoption of grains into the diet led to digestion issues that hindered our ability to process nutrients efficiently, leading to decreased health and more disease. The Paleo diet requires total abstinence of grains and other agriculturally developed products and instead focuses on meats, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.
Since grains and any grain-based products are at the top of the “forbidden” list, all pastas and any dish containing bread, or breadcrumbs (which are numerous in Italian cuisine) are strictly forbidden on the Paleo diet. But pasta substitutes can easily be made from spaghetti squash, pumpkin, zucchini, and carrots, and thin sheets of pasta used for lasagna and other stuffed delicacies can be made from cauliflower. When these substitutes are covered with tomato-based or pesto sauces, they can satisfy even the most desperate craving for pasta. Other popular dishes such as meatballs and chicken parmesan can be made without breadcrumbs, and bruschetta can be served like a salad, without the bread. It just takes a bit of awareness to avoid the grains and find acceptable substitutes, but it can be done.
