More about the baked salmon recipe
It's important to understand that, when you use this baked salmon recipe, you are being kind to yourself. It's the kind of natural food that your Paleo/Stone Age ancestors could have eaten.
Why mention this?
It's because the First Agricultural Revolution, for all its benefits for civilization, has taken a severe toll on our bodies.
Eating grains, potatoes, and legumes have become so widespread that three grains and potatoes (and the foods made from them) now provide more calories for humans than any other foods.
This huge shift in human dietary preferences has had an adverse effect upon our health.
The diseases of civilization such as coronary heart disease (the world's biggest killer today), obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and others have caused almost unimaginable suffering and death.
However, all that suffering and death is unnecessary!
If we were to resume eating and moving much more like our (Paleolithic) Paleo/Stone Age ancestors, we'd quickly become a lot healthier.
So you should feel very good whenever you use this low carb baked salmon recipe or others like it. If you will restrict carbohydrate intake most days of the week and get 90% or more of your calories from natural sources of fats and proteins (like salmon), you will be taking a critical step towards a lifetime of better health.
