Eating right is all about getting the right kinds of nutrients and sometimes, it pays to take things back to basics. Paleo diets have long been making the health world rounds, celebrated for their nutrient heavy, low fat recipes and ingredients. Taking influence from the diets of our ancestors, these kinds of diets feature foods in their simplest forms, balancing meat, fish, vegetables and cereals as part of a balanced diet. Want to get the most out of your food? It’s time to go old school.
