Paleo: A Brief Introduction

Going Back to the Basics with Paleo. Are you tired of feeling like a modern-day caveman constantly surrounded by processed foods and artificial ingredients? Then it’s time to join the paleo movement and embrace a diet based on whole, nutrient-dense foods just like our ancestors did.

So, what exactly is the paleo diet? Simply put, it’s a diet based on the eating habits of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, including meats, seafood, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. The idea is to limit or eliminate processed foods, grains, dairy, and legumes in favor of whole, natural foods.

But why should you consider the paleo diet? By cutting out processed foods and focusing on nutrient-dense options, the paleo diet can lead to improved digestion, increased energy, and even weight loss (1). Plus, with its emphasis on whole, natural foods, you’ll never have to sacrifice taste for health.

What are the restrictions of the paleo diet?

Basically, if a food wasn’t around 10,000 years ago, it’s probably not allowed on the paleo diet. This means no processed foods, grains, dairy, or legumes. But don’t worry, with all of the delicious and satisfying options available, you won’t even miss them!

Now, you might be thinking that a diet based on meat and vegetables sounds boring. But at Damn Fine Plate, you’ll find a range of delicious paleo recipes that will keep you on track and satisfied. From juicy grilled steaks to creamy cauliflower soup, you’ll never run out of delicious meal options.
