Ingredients paleo

Paleo diet ingredients, paleolithic, healthy dietIt is very easy to get the basic paleo ingredients; you can get everything you need from the Internet or from supermarkets.

Be aware to choose your sources because there are several sites in connection with the paleo diet where the ingredients shown are not 100 % paleo ones.

For example, oatmeal can be consumed only in small amounts – on the contrary, numerous websites suggest the opposite showing recipes which ALL have oatmeal as their main ingredient.

I beware you to follow such misinformation.
