The Paleolithic Diet, also called the Paleo Diet or Caveman Diet, consists only of foods that would have been available to our ancestors during the Paleolithic Era, a period of our early history before the emergence of farming and domesticated animals. The hunter-gatherers of this time would have foraged on fruits and vegetables and hunted wild game. The Paleo diet excludes foods like legumes, grains, dairy, and especially the processed foods that are consumed widely today.
Advocates of the Paleo Diet believe that the nutritional needs of humans are based on the foods that were available during the Paleolithic Era, a period which lasted 2.5 million years and makes up a good chunk of the overall history and evolution of mankind. Modern agriculture and animal breeding are relatively new developments for humans, having only been in practice for the last 10,000 years or so. Our modern methods of food production have advanced rapidly as compared to the slow evolution of our bodies, and therefore our systems have not had time to adapt to these newer sources of nutrition such as dairy.
One of the challenges of maintaining the Paleo diet is finding a good variety of foods to eat that satisfy cravings and meet nutritional needs, and finding quick snacks you can eat between meals. That’s where The Paleo Diet Bar comes in, a great tasting nutrition bar that gives you the fuel you need while adhering to the parameters of the Paleo diet. These protein-packed bars are gluten, grain, GMO, preservative, soy and dairy free, and contain 17g of egg protein and 9 essential amino acids. They are the perfect snack for the modern hunter-gatherer, and are endorsed by Dr. Loren Cordain, the creator of the Paleo Diet movement.
