Be adventurous with the various cuts and preparations of meat (even organ meat!) to identify your favorites, and remember: happy animals make happy meat! Opt for grass‐fed and wild meats whenever possible, and avoid processed meats.
Ok, so by now you’re probably asking yourself the following question,” Which foods are Paleo friendly, and which foods should I be avoiding?” Good question, we believe Paleo is one of the healthiest ways to eat on the planet.

Here’s a quick reference guide to what’s considered Paleo and what’s not. In general, a balanced Paleo diet includes foods high in protein and ﬁber not derived from grain products, and it excludes foods high in carbohydrates, reﬁned sugars and those that are heavily processed.
What is Paleo Start?
You’ve probably already heard of the Paleo diet. It’s become pretty popular, but if you haven’t, don’t worry! We’ll run you through the basics.

The term “Paleo” is short for Paleolithic.

The Paleo diet is focused on eating real, whole foods that provide your body with the nutrients it needs, while avoiding processed and reﬁned foods.
