SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – Just because you eat like a caveman, doesn’t mean you’re stuck gnawing on bones, nuts and twigs. Cooking for the Paleo Diet can include quite a tasty variety of foods.

Switching to a Paleo Diet means cutting out a lot of carbs, salts and processed foods and loading up on veggies, fruits, nuts and proteins.

On her blog “Nom Nom Paleo,” you get a good look at how Michelle Tam and her family cook.

On the menu are items like Roast Beef, Asparagus and eggs in prosciutto.

“I try to make it enticing and I try to make the pictures look like something you would want to eat it,” said Tam. “It just so happens to be healthier for you.”

Paleo Guru Robb Wolf says the real challenge for modern cavemen is learning how to cook again.

“People have forgotten how to cook, they don’t want to spend time in the kitchen, they want everything really fast…there’s kind of a trade off there, particularly with food,” said Wolf.
