Is anyone here from Poland?
I am Polish but living in the Chicagoland area like about 2 million other Polish people.
Anyway, my parents have known about Jan Kwasniewski and his diet for years and years (even Polish president Lech Walesa used the diet to get rid of diabetes and lose lots of weight). But my parents mock Kwasniewski and say that the diet is for people who have disabilities or diseases of some sort, not for normal healthy people like us.
Of course, they refuse to read his books.
I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience...If Polish people are just stubborn/closed-minded sometimes.
Also- PALEO POLISH RECIPES? Yum
Partially Polish. I find many polish recipes easy to paleotize. Golabki potato pancakes, Pikeperch, goulash, and bigos are all basically paleo as-is.
Of course, if anyone can come up with a paleo pierogi I would kiss the ground you walk on. I still eat them twice a year because well, I just love them!
yep, a polish gal here :) Out of Poland for over seven years, at the moment in MD.
I am just now convincing my Mom to switch to Paleo... there is nothing close-minded about Poles in general, no sense to generalize so much.
There is a lot of good paleo Polish foods. Bigos for exaple! and variety of fowl, beef or pork meals. and the use of heavy cream? or raw dairy? yum.
of course the best bread is from Poland as well... ;-)
