What is the Paleo Diet?
This diet or better to say style of life is focused on eating only what comes form Nature. Hundreds of years ago cavemen didn’t eat canned soups, premade meals, chocolate, didn’t drink tequila sunrises and coke. Sugar, grains, processed foods- none of this was around 20,000 years ago, none of this was meant to be digested by our body.
Here is the list of Paleo Foods:
