Basically, the theory is that our ancestral humans didn't eat anything except fruit, veggies, nuts and meat. No dairy or grains, nothing milled or processed, I think.

Aren't those the same dudes that lived in caves and thought the world was flat? *wink*

Tsp.. Is you making fun of my greats???? LOL "Centered on commonly available modern foods, the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils." .. from ".. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet.. "

thanks for info. I saw some reviews where someone said "that's not Paleo"; the recipe looked fine to me, but was curious why they got upset about it.

It's basically the Atkins diet with gluten free thrown in. My DD has a friend who is a Paleo convert and I swear what she eats and lives on is just a heart attack waiting to happen.

Not long ago, AR posted this on their home page. This'll explain what Paleo is all about and also gives you some of the recipes on this site: http://allrecipes.com/howto/paleo-diet-the-basics/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=paleo&e8=Article%20Search&event10=1&e13=B%3aSearch%20Results-Grid%28test%29
