    Ya, the main point of 1st draft paleo was that both hunter-gatherers and industrial people tend to fall into monotonous dietary staples (industrial people have the illusion of a million shapes and colors but it's still monotonous). If those staples are nutritious and nontoxic it's not a problem. If those staples are hollow/allergenic/inflammatory then it's a problem. The more varied one's diet becomes, the less one needs to fear those suboptimal exposures.

    Lots of: urban hiking, cycling, sprinting
    Lots of: fresh meat, seafood, eggs, organs, tubers, starch fruits, vegetables, meat fat, dairy fat, oil fruits
    Some: cured meat, dairy protein, sweet fruits, rice, pulses, tree nuts, oil seeds
    Minimal: soy, refined proteins, sugar, liquid carbohydrate, grains, refined oils, peanuts

    When people say avoid legumes like peas think split peas and beans that you have to soak and then cook on the stove for hours and hours. Not the vegetables that you can eat raw.
