I'm not so sure that bird + ape = raccoon. Check your animal math again

In my experience, "journalists" always look for ways to egg people on to fight. It sells papers. So they find a way to stir up the paleos and the grain advocates. Yay! A fight!
Ancestral Health Info
I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.
Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
Ape and ape are ape...
Bird and ape are RA-ccoon
Ra-ccoon & ra-ccoon are gonna fight...
I agree with Danny Kaye! And the lots of animals. Can you hope to win, when such cuteness stands against you?
Also, paleolithic man probably needed to store fat at times. This ain't true for us.
To look at it from a sociological point of view it's still very much a hunter-gatherer society. It's incredibly laborious to harvest "true" grains and there's no way a nomadic group would bother to do it regularly. But the women, young and elderly could certainly grab the odd handful of cattails, wild potatoes and other easily foraged growing things in the same way they'd grab fruit and veg from trees and plants. And I don't see any proof in the "article" that they made naan or pancakes, just they they probably ground them up...maybe they made "bread" coating for their meat! Primal KFC, baby!
In my mind this does nothing to discredit their main diet. And I'm surprised to see (at least) three threads about it springing up on this forum!
