Paleo ...what is it

The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, the term "paleolithic diet" can also refer to actual ancestral human diets, insofar as these can be reconstructed.
Centered on commonly available modern foods, the contemporary "Paleolithic diet" consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.
~as described in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Brendan and I were lucky enough to sit in on a Paleo talk provided by one of the local gyms in our area Fitness2428, what a friendly and informative evening. There was so much information that made sense  and like clean eating it is achievable. Will I be a strict student of Paleo, probably not straight away...but like clean eating I can see the benefits for my family of moving toward this way of eating.

If you are interested in finding out more about The paleolithic "diet" [I don't like the word diet, it makes it sound like a quick fix, Paleo again like clean eating, I think is more about nutrition and lifestyle change.] hop on the information web highway for all the info, studies and recipes you will need to get you started.
