For the majority of human existence, we lived near the equator and near bodies of water. That means a temperate climate that was relatively stable. Lots of people reference Inuits and other cold-faring societies, but the fact is they were fairly societies. We required technology to relocate to cold-weather climates. We did most of our evolving along the African equator. This seasonal arguments don't hold up so well in context when you realize for most of our history we didn't go through huge temperature shifts. Roots and tubers are staple foods in Africa, far more so than meats.
