Why Paleo?

December 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Paleo may be the buzz word for healthy eating at the moment but the principles make total sense. It’s not that long ago we were cavemen.

Well, ok it was a LONG time ago but in evolutionary terms its relatively recently and during the intervening million years or so our digestion or body’s needs hasn’t changed that much.

So, why are we ignoring what we were built to eat and opting for processed sugary foods? Laziness? Convenience? Taste? All three? Definitely all three, and taste because we’ve programmed our bodies to crave high sugar low quality foods.

Here’s a list of benefits of eating like our ancestors, food for thought and food for life too
