The Paleolithic Diet (Paleo) focuses on consuming foods that our ancestors would have eaten thousands of years ago during the Paleolithic era. Anything produced after that time from agriculture and farming is not allowed. It follows a hunter-gatherer way of eating. The diet includes meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, tubers, fruits, and nuts. Paleo eaters exclude dairy products, grains, refined sugars, legumes, and processed foods. Following a Paleo diet can reduce inflammation, regulate blood sugar, prevent disease, and help with weight loss. It is one of the most popular diets in our country today. Recipes that are Paleo will be labeled with the icon below.
