The paleo diet is based on foods similar to what people would have eaten during the Paleolithic era. This diet typically consists of fish, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds — or foods that were hunted and gathered. The goal is to limit foods produced from the farming techniques developed around 10,000 years ago, including legumes, dairy products, and grains, as well as highly processed foods and foods made with refined sugar. However, this diet does allow for a level of interpretation.
Although paleo is technically a diet, it by no means restricts the recipes you can create. There are so many foods you can experiment with, creating so many winning combinations. With fall in full swing, try new paleo fall recipes that celebrate the flavors of this wonderful season. From root vegetables to apple, and pumpkin to ginger, these ingredients define fall.
