What is the Paleo diet?

I’m not interested in debating which diet is most optimal for health. Their is no magic bullet diet that solves every persons health issues. Not to mention, everyone has different goals. But this blog is Paleo diet inspired and I think every healthy diet has one common thing…EAT REAL FOOD. Sooooo, in a nutshell, Paleo is a diet focused on eating lots of vegetables, fruits, lean meats and healthy fats.

Also called the  “caveman”  or “hunter gatherers” diet, the concept comes from eating the way nature intended us too – like the way cavemen would eat (pre-agriculture/farming era.)  But let’s get real… We are headed to mass-produced grocery stores, served an incredible amount at restaurants, drive to work and sit under fake light most of the day.   So before you get all smart-ass with me about Paleo, this is about living as a “modern-day” caveman.

I won’t get into any more details… To many sites have done that already. Here are my favorite links and below you can find a great infographic explaining it all.
