What Does Paleo Mean?

Many people ask me, what exactly is Paleo?

The Paleo diet is founded upon the principle that we should currently eat as much like our Paleolithic hunter-gatherer ancestors as possible, meaning lean meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and berries and cut out gluten, grains, and dairy. The founder as well as many well known advocates believe our bodies can not digest the grains grown since the agriculture era. It also cuts out processed foods which have been proven to be bad for our health. That however, does not mean we have to give up Paleo breads and treats, just eat them responsibly and sparingly.

My breads and treats are always made with ingredients that are gluten-, grain-, and dairy-free. You can see exactly what ingredients I use on my ingredients page. The main flours used are almond, tapioca, arrowroot, and/or cassava. The main sugars used are coconut sugar, maple sugar, and maple syrup.
