“The Paleo Diet is based upon everyday, modern foods that mimic the food groups of our pre-agricultural, hunter-gatherer ancestors. These fundamentals help to optimize your health, minimize your risk of chronic disease, and lose weight.” – ThePaleoDiet.com
Although it’s difficult for some of us to grasp the concept of eating like a caveman, the idea behind this diet is that our bodies evolved to eat in this way, so it provides us with optimum nutrition. Following the basic principles of the paleo diet means an increase in healthy, all-natural, REAL foods that are nutrient-rich and easy on our bodies.
The basic priniciples of the paleo diet are:
- Grass-fed meats
- Fish and seafood
- Fresh fruits and veggies
- Nuts and seeds
- Healthful oils (olive, walnut, flaxseed, macadamia, avocado, and coconut)
- Refined Sugar
- Refined vegetable oils (canola and soy)
- Processed Foods
