Paleo: From Our Singapore Bakery to a Stone Age Diet?
The term “paleo” is an abbreviation and stands for “Paleolithic” – Stone Age. The Paleolithic diet follows the idea to return to human eating habits from the Stone Age. It therefore renounces refined sugar, cereals, legumes, fast food, finished products and, of course, industrially processed products.
Our bakery uses natural and untreated ingredients only for LOCABA’s desserts. So our treats are paleo by nature. That also makes our healthy custom birthday cakes “paleo”.
Eligible for a paleo nutrition are unprocessed and natural ingredients consisting of vegetables, eggs, meat, offal and bone marrow, fish and seafood, nuts and seeds, healthy oils and saturated fats and fruits.
Again – Carbs
In contrast to other diets, paleo does not strictly avoid carbohydrates as much as possible. It is rather the source of the carbs that counts for this kind of nutrition. As a guideline no more than 20–30% of the daily energy requirement should consist of carbohydrates according to paleo – including, of course, any cakes and desserts.
Especially from sources like vegetables, nuts and berries up to 150 grams of carbohydrates per day are allowed. A typical distribution of nutrients during a paleo diet looks like this: 30% carbs, 30% proteins and 40% fats.
LOCABA and Paleo Nutrition
LOCABA diabetic friendly cakes and desserts contain eggs, nuts and seeds as well as healthy oils and saturated fats. Since LOCABA’s Singapore bakery for healthy cakes does not use any cereals or household sugar, our desserts perfectly go together with a paleo diet.
Diets like paleo or keto are controversial among experts. It happens that LOCABA cakes and desserts can perfectly go together with theses said diets, although our bakery’s core philosophy is to keep our cakes and desserts low-carb and diabetic-friendly and that they contain no refined sugar.
