The word “Paleo” is derived from the word Paleolithic – which refers to the period of time when humans were hunter-gatherers. Therefore the idea is to only eat foods that would have been available to our ancestors back then.
The basics of the Paleo Lifestyle is exactly that, getting back to basics. It’s about eating whole, unprocessed foods, and minimising the intake of processed and refined foods. Paleo offers us a blueprint, or framework for optimal nutrition.
