    This..

    Beans are also very nutritious and one of the most complete foods you can eat.

    I think Paleo is kind of rediculous.

    The majority of anyones diet should be meat and vegetable but staying strict and not allowing room for some processed foods is just overboard.

    I cheat a little. But cutting down on all the chemicals, preservatives, and carbohydrates of the typical American diet would be beneficial to most.

    "The cherry on top" perhaps the most overpraised item in all of the culinary arts.

    "Meat and Potatoes" a term used to describe simplicity with two of the most varied items you can use.

    I 100% agree. You have no idea the amount of hormones that go into meat, along with GMOs. I have a corn allergy, so I pretty much eat the same way, but I do have beans, and a little dairy, along with rice and potatoes. 6 months ago, if you told me I would be eating no processed foods, I would of laughed at you, but now, I can feel the difference physically and mentally.

    I'm trying to keep pressure on my congressman for GMO labeling requirements.

    You should. If you stick with 100% organic veges and fruits you should be good. I shop at whole foods, and they do pretty well, with having their products(not just the 365 brand), labeled for Non-GMO. But, I think organic is thrown around a little too loosely. Something could be a derivative of corn and still be called organic. When you think organic, most people think non-processed, which is not the case. I found a product and it was labeled in the ingredients as, organic corn syrup. Really!?!

    I agree.. To be honest I probably eat 75% paleo.

    But some stuff I refuse to give up because I don't think it would make a bit of difference.

    Now for someone who has no control over their diet then that would be a good candidate to try and be as strictly paleo as possible.

    yuck, i rather have "plain chili", and "soup with only chicken included". i can stand how beans look after someone finishs them. or how silly it looks when someone uses bread as a spoon to dig up the beans. if someone does that, i rather do that digging up bacon(which i used to do as a kid).

    I've heard that if you put an Alka Seltzer in your pot of beans it gets rid of the gas that makes you fart. I don't know if it's true or not.

    But, I love a good pot of beans with bacon and some fried taters with a slice of cornbread!

    The issue with oils is supposedly the Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratios. The high levels are normally found in oils with higher levels of polyunsaturated fat. These oils als tend to have lower oxidation temperatures than foods like tallow, which is primarily saturated fat and olive oil, which is more mono-unsaturated. Peanut oil for example, has a ratio of probably 20-1. The problem is, when the ratio gets high, an inflammatory state that is unhealthy, supposedly, is created. The levels the say are idea are disputed, some say 4-1 is idea, others say equivalent.

    Oil per say is not bad. It's excess that is.
