Beyond Paleo – why we “upgraded” our meal plan

Paleo followers have created enough demand that we wanted to provide an option that suited them, but we also had to make sure we did this with the backing of good science and maintained the integrity of health in our meals.

Our Paleo meal plans do contain beans, lentils, legumes, and ancient grains like quinoa and also brown rice.  We do not exclude corn on the cob either.  We do exclude gluten, dairy, and refined cane sugar though.

What is the science behind the Paleo craze?  Did our ancestors really eat a majority of protein from animals?  Science says no.  In fact, anthropology tells us they ate a mostly vegetable and “starch” based diet.  Meat was too unpredictable, and as hunter gatherers, the gathering happened routinely, daily, and they ate what was available seasonally, and the men would go out and hunt and bring back and share their daily kill.  Often between the whole community.

If we were looking for a perfect diet that suited our current human evolution, wouldn’t we be better off looking at populations that live beyond 100 years of age, surely they hold secrets to longevity and vitality.  Interestingly, their diets contain mostly vegetables, many are vegetarians.

So if you want a healthier version of Paleo, choose upgraded Paleo, free from sugar, gluten and wheat, but full of all the added goodness of vegetable proteins and natural starches.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?
