In today's health-conscious society, it's nearly impossible to pop open a wellness magazine or waltz into a gym without hearing something about some kind of diet. From diets that promote strict calorie counting to eating styles that limit carbs, the world is full of them. And while there's not necessarily one diet that works better than the rest, there is one that has become increasingly popular over the years due to its many incredible health benefits — the paleo diet.
A dietary lifestyle designed to mimic the eating habits of our paleolithic hunter-gatherer ancestors, the theory behind the super popular paleo diet is to eat like a caveman and shed pounds —this means no processed or refined foods.
If you're thinking this lifestyle sounds like a breeze, we've got news for you — it's not. You see, many staples of our modern diet are not on the paleo menu: pasta, bagels, pizza, tacos, sandwiches… you get the idea. With that in mind, while the benefits of eating like a caveman are plentiful, it can be a difficult diet to stick to, especially if you're a bread-lover. Why? Because bread is highly processed — unless, of course, you have Uprising Food's Superfood Bread.
There are paleo bread recipes all over the internet, but when it comes to taste, nothing can compare to the chef-designed mouthfeel that comes from a slice of Uprising Superfood Bread. And the best part? Our bread is baked fresh and delivered right to your door — perfect to keep on hand for when you don't have time to cook and are craving a paleo-approved sandwich!
In this post, we're exploring our delicious bread that's not only perfect for paleo dieters but keto dieters, too! Whether you don't have time to make your own bread or simply miss the mouthwatering taste of real bread, our Uprising Superfood Bread is a perfect addition to any pantry. Read on to discover more.
What Is the Paleo Diet?
Short for Paleolithic, paleo refers to the era of early humans — aka cavemen. The whole idea behind the popular eating style is to return to how our ancient ancestors ate. A paleo diet includes:
These are food sources obtained through hunting and gathering before humans developed agriculture. It’s a radical departure from a typical American diet, when most modern foods include dairy products, oils, grains, flours, and legumes. The founders of the paleo diet believe that by eliminating these modern-era foods, you can avoid or control "diseases of civilization" like heart disease, obesity, and more.
What Are the Benefits of the Paleo Diet?
No cookies, cakes, potato chips, or bread — this way of eating may sound extreme, but it can be an extremely healthy alternative to the typical American diet. Paleo foods are clean, meaning they don't have any added preservatives, chemicals, or dyes. Plus, a diet rich in veggies, nuts, seeds, and fruit is anti-inflammatory. Seeing as inflammation is the root of many diseases, it makes sense how the paleolithic eating style can keep chronic illnesses at bay.
But that's not all — here are a few more benefits of eating like a caveman:
Benefit #1: Promotes Good Sleep
By cutting out the icky chemicals and additives from your diet, you'll find that your body naturally gets sleepy at nighttime. This is because the hormones that your brain naturally releases as a signal that it's time to hit the hay are not overridden by other synthetic chemicals from food.
By eliminating these icky chemicals from your diet, you may find that you sleep more deeply and wake up feeling energized and ready to take on the day.
Benefit #2: Provides More Energy
Since you're not eating refined sugar when on the paleo diet, it's much easier to avoid spikes in your blood glucose levels. And when your blood glucose levels are in check, so are your energy levels. Fueling your body with nutrient-dense foods such as our high-crunch Superfood Freedom Chips will help provide your body with sustainable energy from sun-up to sun-down.
Benefit #3: Supports A Healthy Gut
Your gut is home to trillions of itty-bitty microbes that help digest food, synthesize vitamins, boost your immune system, regulate metabolism, and more. By nixing chemical-laden foods that irritate this delicate system and restoring it with natural foods that promote its health, the paleo diet can contribute to a happier and healthier gut.
The Best Paleo Sandwich Bread on the Planet
As you can see, eating like a caveman provides many incredible benefits. However, it can be a tough diet to follow — especially if bread is one of your most favorite foods. Sure, there are many recipes online that can help you make paleo-approved bread, but when time is of the essence, and you're craving a sandwich, making bread from scratch is not always the best option.
Thankfully, there's Uprising Superfood Bread.

Baked fresh and delivered to your door, with our Uprising Superfood Bread, you can make sandwiches on the go that are not only paleo-approved but keto-friendly as well! What's not to love?
A Final Word
Sure, white bread wasn't part of our hunter-gatherer ancestor's diet, but that doesn't mean modern-day humans haven't found a way around the rules. With many years of research, we have created healthy bread that's so good, you won't believe it's made with only a handful of clean paleo-approved ingredients.
