...or Paleolithic Diet. The first time I heard this term was on SBS's "Food Investigators" two weeks ago. It had me intrigued. The Paleolithic period started about 2.5 million years ago. Or so I read. So what would you eat? Red meat, fish, eggs, fruit, vegetables and nuts. No dairy, no grains.
How long did the cavemen live? 25-30 years? Just guessing here. So how healthy would a diet like this be in the long run? Let's say for 70-80 years?
Would YOU be able to eat like this? What would you miss most?
Me? Grains. Potatoes - seriously!
There are tons of articles and websites to be found. Here is one article to give you an overview of what the diet is all about.
