What is a Paleo Diet?
The paleo diet is a diet consisting of foods that cavemen could eat. That means anything you could hunt, grow, forage, etc. The paleo community is split on dairy. Some paleo enthusiasts are very against it and others accept some dairy. Since dairy is inflammatory, I suggest keeping dairy at a minimum. I’m okay with using butter but I tend to avoid cheese, milk and yogurt. There are great alternatives to cow’s milk such as almond milk. They also make almond milk yogurt. There are a few great non-dairy cheese options available as well.
Think of the Paleo diet as whole foods. Stay away from processed foods and sugars and instead focus on things that come closest to their original form. Some Paleo dieters will follow a low-carb diet high in animal foods, while others follow a high-carb diet with lots of plants. The choice is up to you and which leaves you feeling better and more satisfied.
