In a nutshell, Paleo lifestyle and diet take inspiration and cues from our ancestors and the way we used to eat and live.
The diet focuses on unprocessed, whole foods – healthy fats including saturated fat, grass-fed, free-range meat and eggs, lots of fish and seafood, vegetables, fruit, berries, nuts, seeds and some natural sweeteners.
Meat and poultry (including offal) – grass-fed, free range meat is not only a kinder and more ethical way to consume animal products but it is also much higher in nutrients because of the way the cattle was fed and raised. Fruit and berries – stick to low sugar fruit and berries and keep high sugar fruit like bananas and mangos for days when you need a higher carbohydrate intake or when in season and tasting delicious.
Nuts and seeds – these guys are nutritious but many nuts and seeds are high in Omega-6 fatty acids which can be pro-inflammatory if consumed in large quantities and when your diet is not balanced by an equal amount of Omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish like salmon and sardines, eggs and leafy greens. Refined sugars and carbohydrates – bread, pasta, cookies, white sugar, artificial sugar, high fructose syrup, sodas, fruit juices and so on. Processed vegetable oils and fats such as canola oil (rapeseed), soybean oil, vegetable (Is it really made from vegetables? Dairy should mainly be avoided, especially if you suffer from gut problems and gluten intolerances, but if you’re in good health and have no sensitivities to lactose (sugars in milk) or casein (protein in milk) then a little healthy dairy can go a long way. Natural sweeteners – honey, maple syrup, molasses, dried fruit, dark chocolate, palm sugar, rice malt syrup for those avoiding fructose.


Pseudograins like quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat are less harmful but they are still dense sources of carbohydrates and contain similar antinutrients to grains.
Looking for a plan or a program to help you reset and recharge, check out this 9-week Happy Body Program kicking off in February 2016. This eBook guide to paleo is a fantastic resource that is beautifully designed and easy to follow.
We have a great little interview with a cattle farmer talking about the benefits of grass-fed, pasture raised cattle meat here.
As for salt, use good quality sea salt or Celtic salt to get beneficial minerals and be sensible with it. White rice is the least harmful of all grains and is added to dishes on occasions or for variety, it’s also part of the Perfect Health Diet protocol, which is what I follow. There are some debates over whether some legumes are safe to consume in moderation, if prepared properly (soaked for 12 hours and then cooked really well to remove the phytic acid and make them easier to digest). We don’t think so), and sunflower oils, as well as margarines and spreads made with such oils. They should be prepared carefully to remove some of the anti-nutrients such as phytic acid.

Some people include healthy dairy foods like kefir, full fat natural yogurt, some aged cheese and butter.
Soak such grains in salted water for 8-12 hours, rinse and then cook well before consuming. Whenever possible, try to activate nuts and seeds by soaking and then dehydrating them back, which makes them easier to digest. Paleo is about learning from ancestors but it is mostly fuelled by modern scientific and medical research and common sense. We love this way of eating because it also focuses on local, organic produce and good farming practices.
Above all, paleo is not a set of strict rules, it’s more of a framework that you can adapt based on your own goals, health, gender, age, location and current lifestyle.
