Welcome to the world as it was before corn fields, grain mills, industrialized dairy farms, high-fructose corn syrup, McDonald’s and Starbucks. You have to fend for yourself. Hunt animals, gather your ruffage and prepare your food. What would you eat? The answer to that may surprise you: LOTS of delicious food!!
It’s important to keep in mind that modern primal eaters are not attempting to re-enact history. *Note that I can’t speak for all of us, but I can say with confidence that I have not yet witnessed a man wearing a loincloth, holding a spear coming out of a CrossFit gym in recent memory. Though I would have no objection to this if it were say, Jason Statham or Tom Hardy, but I digress… Buy your meat from a local farmer, grab your veggies from the farmers market. And if that’s not gonna work, just go to your neighborhood store. I won’t tell anyone 😉 Electronic appliances are welcome, as is modern refrigeration, stainless steel cookware, and a well-stocked spice cabinet. Things have improved a bit over the years, let’s take advantage of that.
The main idea with Paleo is to give your body the fuel it needs to function at its best. This is not a crash diet. This is a lifestyle of getting rid of processed foods, confronting your dependency on hormone-laden protein and dairy, and preserving your dear sweet pancreas. Believe me, you have no idea how good you can feel until you eliminate harmful gluten and refined/processed sweeteners. It’s time to start eating the foods that make you feel your best!
