Sustainability

When it comes to leaving a healthy planet for our grandkids to enjoy, one of the most important choices we can make, on a daily basis, is to carefully select the foods we eat based on the ways in which they are grown or raised. Bland feedlot beef from animals filled with antibiotics and growth hormones, factory-raised chickens, genetically modified crops drenched with chemicals, and fruit selected for its size rather than its nutrient density are the consequence of poor industrial agricultural practices. At The Paleo Diet, we encourage everyone to choose a healthier, more sustainable diet by selecting grass-fed, free-range meats, local, organic fruits and vegetables, and thoughtfully harvested seafood.
