You're either eating like our ancestors, or you're not. If you're not, then stop trying to sell the whole paleo ancestral heritage mantra.

Paleo is very similar to the way I eat, but I really don't care about all of the caveman crap. I also don't care about the name paleo. I avoid dairy because it makes me break out. I try to avoid bread and pasta because they make me very bloaty. One or both of those things also exacerbates my allergies, too. I eat beans and peanuts, though, because I like them and they don't seem to bother me at all.

I get that it's super cool to bag on whatever is popular, but I cant think of a lot of bad things to say about eating fruits, veggies, nuts, unprocessed meats, etc. It's all good stuff. I don't eat paleo, but I have several paleo recipe books because everything in there is in line with the way I eat.
