The term ‘Paleo’ comes from Palaeolithic, which is the name of an era approximately 10,000 years ago, also known as the Stone Age. Today, Paleo is the name of a particular style of eating which takes its inspiration from the way humans ate back in the Palaeolithic era. No cereals, pasta, chocolate or chips. All products on the Paleo diet have to be hunted or gathered. Think fish, meat, eggs, nuts, veggies, seeds and fruit.
The average caveman was lean, strong, and athletic. By comparison we are fatter, slower and more tired. The Paleo diet is based on the belief that the introduction of agriculture and farming has led to us becoming dependent on foods like bread, pasta and rice. Grains are well known for causing sluggish digestion and only providing short-lived bursts of energy. The Paleo diet advocates high-protein, nutrient-dense, natural produce.
With the revival in popularity of the Paleo diet, there are hundreds of boards on Pinterest with ideas for making the most out of living Paleo-style.
