Amazing Paleo Pizza – Really!

Simone Miller, author of Zenbelly Cookbook, is not only a fabulous paleo cook, she is purely and simply a fantastic gourmet chef. Her book is my favorite paleo cookbook and it gets used several times a week. I have never made anything from it that hasn’t turned out just delicious.

One of my all-time favorite recipes is her paleo pizza crust, which I make regularly and top with whatever I’m in the mood for — mushrooms, olives, onions, roasted veggies, sausage, pepperoni – you name it! With pizza, it’s all about the crust, and this crust gets it right. My non-paleo husband loves it because it tastes like regular pizza crust.

Why Your Genes Aren’t Your Destiny

“At one time scientists believed our DNA held the key to preventing and reversing disease. But we now know that our environment — not our genes — is the primary driver of health and longevity,” writes Chris Kresser in a recent post on his blog chriskresser.com.

According to Kresser, we now know that genetics account for only about 10 percent of human disease. Scientists now realize that the primary driver of health and disease is the “exposome” — the full range of environmental exposures including diet, lifestyle choices, and social interactions.

The good news is that this new recognition carries a strong message of personal empowerment and responsibility. By focusing on diet, physical activity, sleep and stress management, individuals can literally transform their health and lives.
