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.
I think most of us likely eat pretty "Paleo," and I think that's the beef (haha) with it. The need to repackage everything in some trendy, cool narrative full of truthiness is what sticks in my craw. Though it doesn't really irritate me, as I'm pretty fascinated by successful marketing narratives, so I respect the stickiness of the Paleo concept from that standpoint.
