The Paleo lifestyle grows out of the belief that we were intended to eat off the land: what walks on it, grows from it, or swims in its waters. It's about sticking to the kinds of foods that human beings were born to ingest (meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts), and excluding those that were developed later (grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils). Nell Stephenson shows readers-especially women-from all walks of life that it's t hard to maintain the Paleo lifestyle whenever, wherever, or whomever you are. She shows that Paleo isn't just a lifestyle for cavemen -it's a healthy way for anyone to eat. There are simple ways to incorporate this ancestral diet into today's busy modern lifestyle, whether you're cooking for yourself or even for a larger family. Paleoista is t only a how-to book, it is also a glimpse into the life of a woman who gives advice on how to eat this way, and lives the life, day in and day out.
