PALEO PRINCIPLES
THE PALEO DIET® COMES FROM THE WORD “PALEOLITHIC,” WHICH MEANS
“THE OLD STONE AGE”—A PERIOD LASTING FROM THE APPEARANCE OF
STONE TOOLS ABOUT 3 MILLION YEARS AGO TO THE BEGINNINGS OF
AGRICULTURE AND ANIMAL HUSBANDRY 10,000 YEARS AGO. DURING THIS
ERA, ALL OF OUR ANCESTORS LIVED AS HUNTER-GATHERERS AND
OBTAINED EVERYTHING THEY ATE FROM WILD PLANT AND ANIMAL FOODS
THAT COULD BE HUNTED, FISHED, OR FORAGED.

Introduction
When your interest is initially piqued by a new diet or cookbook, it is only natural to want
to discover a bit more about the history of the topic—where it came from, why it currently
exists, and where it may be going. Sometimes we can get up to speed more rapidly on a
topic by starting in the present and going backward in time or, sometimes, vice versa.
When it comes to The Paleo Diet® concept, I not only have the luxury of being able to
personally travel backward in time to its very beginnings, but I am able to move forward
in time to appreciate its current worldwide impact.

For me, The Paleo Diet® concept began on a crisp Colorado fall day in 1987 when I
read a scientific paper by Dr. S. Boyd Eaton called “Paleolithic nutrition: a consideration
of its nature and current implications,” published two years earlier in the prestigious New
England Journal of Medicine. This scientific article represented nothing less than the
defining moment in my career, which set me off on a 30-year quest into what would
become my life’s work. My ensuing scientific and popular writings over the intervening
years (www.thepaleodiet.com) have helped to define a worldwide concept now known as
“The Paleo Diet®,” a term I coined with my first book in 2002 and that was later revised in 2010.

So for those of you who are just starting to wrap your heads around The Paleo Diet®,
let’s fast forward to 2013–2014 and take a look at just how well-known “Paleo” has
become to the general public. On a recent Dr. Oz show devoted entirely to diets, the good
doctor introduced the broadcast by saying that “the number-one Google search of all diets
in 2013 was for The Paleo Diet®.” This show came only a few months after a previous
broadcast in which Dr. Oz featured me and my first book, The Paleo Diet®, which had
become a New York Times best seller and had been translated into more than 20 languages worldwide.

As you may expect, the global Paleo Diet movement has spawned an explosion of
copycat books over the past several years. Look no further than amazon.com to literally
see the hundreds of diets and cookbooks that manage to shoehorn the word “Paleo” into their titles.

In a way, all of these books are a good thing because they tend to get more and more
people involved in a lifetime way of eating that may improve health and well-being while
reducing the risk for chronic diseases. The downside of this situation is that many authors
are poorly informed and frequently provide misleading information about food, recipes,
and meals that are not “Paleo” by any stretch of the imagination. Accordingly, one of my
primary goals in writing The Real Paleo Diet® Cookbook is to correct this glut of
misinformation and give you the best and most scientifically accurate facts about which
foods, ingredients, and recipes should be included in your Paleo Diet. But even more
important, with The Real Paleo Diet® Cookbook, you will become privy to an incredible
cornucopia of enticing and delectable foods and recipes designed and fully tested by a topnotch
group of chefs and cooks.

FLAVOR
AS YOU KNOW BY NOW, THE PALEO DIET® IS A SALT-FREE DIET. SALT IS NOT
REQUIRED TO MAKE FOODS TASTE “GOOD.” IN FACT, THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE
—SALT DROWNS OUT THE FLAVOR OF FRESH FOOD. IF THE SUGGESTION
THAT YOU COULD TRULY ENJOY A SALT-FREE DIET GIVES YOU PAUSE, BE
ASSURED THAT THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO BUILD FANTASTIC FLAVOR IN
FOODS WITHOUT SALT. ONE OF THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF GETTING
SALT OUT OF YOUR DIET WILL BE THE RESURGENCE OF YOUR TASTE BUDS
AND NEW ENJOYMENT OF THE SUBTLE FLAVORS OF “REAL,” LIVING FOODS.

EQUIPMENT
I AM NOT A WORLD-CLASS CHEF, BUT I LOVE TO COOK AND FIDDLE
AROUND IN OUR KITCHEN. I HAVE BEEN PREPARING MEALS FOR LORRIE
AND MY THREE SONS FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS. I KNOW WHAT IT TAKES
TO COOK CONTEMPORARY, TASTY MEALS IN A FASHION THAT MIMICS THE
FOOD GROUPS OUR STONE AGE ANCESTORS WOULD HAVE CONSUMED. I
ONLY HAVE A FEW ABSOLUTES WHEN IT COMES TO COOKING UTENSILS—
ONE IS GOOD KNIVES. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO OUT AND BUY EVERYTHING
ON THIS LIST, BUT A FEW KEY PIECES WILL MAKE COOKING FASTER AND
MORE EFFICIENT.
