Paleo, Primal, Caveman Nutrition Resources

Primal living is as old as dirt.  There has been plenty of buzz on this style of nutrition which promotes eating local, whole foods that can be killed with a spear or picked out of the ground. Some of the lifestyle catch-phrases include:

"Eat Dirt"

"Live Long, Drop Dead"

"Eat like a predator, not like prey."

"Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food."

"Eat like a cow, look like a cow. Eat like a cougar, look like a cougar"

“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.”

When someone asks us about optimal diet, particularly for allergies, autoimmune, and inflammatory pain disorders, this is our first go-to recommendation. As with any nutritional plan, it must be tailored to the individual based on age, gender, health status, and practicality. After reading dozens of books, websites, and research articles on the subject, here is a list of some of our favorite resources to get you started:
