What is the Paleo Diet?
In a nutshell, Paleo is a simple dietary lifestyle, based on the principle that foods are either “in” or “out,” with respect to planning your daily diet.
Foods that are “in” are considered Paleolithic Era foods. These are foods that we, as human beings, were thought to have consumed prior to the advent of agriculture (foods such as: meat, fish, shellfish, eggs, tree nuts, vegetables, roots, fruit, berries, mushrooms, etc.). “Out” foods are Neolithic Era foods that result from agriculture, or are processed (grains, beans/legumes, potatoes, sugar and fake/processed foods).

The foods below are “in” foods
Any type, including beef, pork, game meat, chicken, etc. If possible, choose organic or grass fed meat.
The Paleo diet recommends eating fats, whether these on meat, or the skin on poultry. It’s thought that our ancestors regularly consumed fats. Using butter and cream for cooking can make your food taste better and make you feel more satiated. Avocados are very versatile and can be a delicious addition. Cooking or flavoring dishes with coconut oil, or olive oil, are also good options.
Fish and Shellfish
Eat any kind. Enjoy fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, or herring, but be sure to avoid breading.
Enjoy boiled, fried, in omelettes, etc. Preferably, use organic eggs.
Cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts. Asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, olives, spinach, mushrooms, cucumber, lettuce, avocado, onions, peppers, tomatoes etc.
