The Paleo (or Paleolithic) diet has gained a ton of support in the last few years and is starting to become a real movement. While there are different variations and “types” of Paleo (what is/isn’t “allowed”) they all center around the same concept: eat what our ancestors ate before modern day illnesses like cardiovascular and heart disease were real problems. While one version of Paleo might allow or not allow something most Paleo experts will agree the important part of a Paleolithic diet is to EAT REAL FOOD.
Not sure if something is Paleo? This is the best rule of thumb you can follow: if it has more than one ingredient it probably isn’t considered Paleo.
