New app launched for the Stone Age dieter
Thursday 18 August 2011
A new app for followers of the "caveman" diet has been launched to help bring the paleo-regime into the digital age.
The Paleo Diet Recipes app was launched this week and provides modernized recipe ideas that follow the principles of the Stone Age-inspired eating plan, a diet that preaches the exclusion of gluten, dairy, soy, grains, legumes, salt, refined sugar, processed foods and preservatives. Perhaps its most famous follower is Transformers starlet Megan Fox.
Recipes from the app are heavy on lean meats like fish and poultry, fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts and natural herbs and spices.
For example, a recipe for stuffed peppers calls for bell peppers, onions, ground turkey, canned tomatoes, oregano, lemon pepper, chili or chili powder and olive oil.
Publishing house Dorling Kindersley, perhaps best known for its Eyewitness travel guides, also released a food app this week called DK Quick Cook, an app with 500 illustrated recipes that promises easy fast meals, many of which are ready in under 30 minutes. Take note, however, that doesn't include prep time, which can take up to 45 minutes.
Recipes include chocolate orange profiteroles, pizza with spinach and ricotta cheese and skewered lemon and herb chicken.
Meanwhile, campers who take to the great outdoors - and find themselves in an area with great reception - can also avail themselves of a new app, Camping Recipes Collection which has more than 2,500 campfire recipes that use different cooking methods like foil cooking and Dutch ovens.
Here's a roundup of the latest food apps to hit the market:
