At Fourmi Bionique, we do not encourage any particular diet, but we do stress the importance of eating a variety of foods that are healthy, organic, local … Nonetheless, we want to make life easier for those who, for health reasons or personal conviction, choose a restrictive diet like the Paleolithic (or Paleo) one. Thus, we will explain, without bias, what the Paleo diet is based on, and how the NUTBROWN grain free paleo granolas are compatible with this diet.
What is the Paleo diet?
Paleo comes from the Paleolithic era, a period before the first agricultural revolution, when Man was then a hunter gatherer and was not organized in a sedentary society cultivating the lands and domesticating animals.
What is the relationship with the diet? The idea of the Paleolithic diet is to relate health (allergies, digestive sensitivities, cancer…) and ecological issues (industrialization, livestock, deforestation…) of our era, with the modern consumption mode where agriculture dominates.
What did they eat then?
They ate everything that could be found without agriculture. Fruits, vegetables, berries, wild seeds low in carbohydrates; meat from hunting animals fed on herbs, eggs, fish, seafood …
The Paleo diet is therefore close to low carb diets (low in carbohydrates) like the Keto diet for example. It is also a gluten-free diet because there are no cereals.
So what is prohibited?
Forget about dairy products, almost all cereals and legumes, oils (except olive oil), refined sugars, industrial products, alcohol, coffee…
This is a fairly restrictive diet that will not suits everyone. More than a diet, the Paleo way of life is supposed to be based on intense sporting activity.
There is also the Paleo Fitness whose principle is to do sports without machines as our ancestors: jump, walk, run barefoot, climb etc.
