And so, is it a legitimately healthy choice or is it just a passing fad that will one day be called out for a fraud that could have unhealthy consequences?
The paleo diet consists of fruits, veggies, meats – anything that would have been available to you as food as a caveman in the paleolithic era, would be fair game for modern day paleo diet adopters.
So did the cavemen have wisdom in their food choices?
In a way, they definitely did. Food did not have to be mass produced for big populations. Food was local, it was organic, and it was straight from the planet to the table. Simple food model. Extremely healthy.
Along came big population booms, and suddenly we had to find ways to adapt through mass food growth, processing foods for simplicity, ease and comfort. All of this led to many unhealthy food choices as a culture.
Paleo diet is a great choice for all and can be as simple as preparing paleo smoothies that consist of mostly fruit, greens, and veggie proteins, or can be as complex as culinary full course dinner meals.
