Paleo is short for Paleolithic— meaning “old stone.” And now— this old stone way of life— the hunter-gatherer era— has made a comeback life a fashion statement.
Well, I am into pop culture and anything considered a “fad.” So of course I hear about the Paleo diet and jump on board. Essentially you eat what our ancestors might have eaten during the hunter-gatherer era prior to the agricultural revolution where we became farmer-heardsman.
Translated— you can’t eat processed foods, refined sugars, grains or legumes [beans]. Leaving you meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, root type things, and water. There a probably more restrictions, but I need to keep it simple.
I am six weeks into this Paleo experience [kind of… I cheated all of week 5] and I want to share with you some things I have learned.
