Shop By Diet: Paleo Goodies

So what’s this whole Paleo Diet, anyway? 

“Going Paleo” means you only eat foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans: Mainly meat, fish, vegetables and fruit – no dairy, no grain, no processed food and nothing you couldn’t eat raw, like potatoes or beans. Basically, all animal protein, all the time. 

The idea is that our bodies are better at digesting foods (thus getting the nutrients we need) when we eat the way we used to, before our diets were drastically changed some thousands of years ago (or was it 10? – hey, we’re not scientists), long before we started cultivating grains and legumes.

We’re not here to promote any one way of eating – your body is a unique temple that should be treated individually, period, end of story (well, ok, so we ARE partial to avoiding things with ingredients we can’t pronounce).

That said, we can’t deny how many delicious foods happen to be Paleo. If we had to pick one way to eat for the rest of our life, this could be it. (Oh wait… no bread. And no cheese. Hmm.) So we put together a whole collection of indie-pendently made goodies. Yes, bacon is allowed, and so is jerky (salmon and beef!), almond butters (no peanuts – that’s a legume), fried pork skins, pickles and even chocolate.

And if you know someone who’s gone Paleo, our Paleo Goodies taster makes an awesome gift. They’ll totally go ape over it.
