Paleo Properties

I was thinking about how you'd define paleo food in just a few words.  It is tricky as paleo is evolving as a concept.  As with all movements it is splintering as it moves to the mainstream.  For many now, dairy is 'in' as are (traditional) grains when prepared in traditional ways. 

So what does this leave us with?  How would we define paleo foods?  Some ideas include:
  • Could be hunted with a stick or foraged for.
  • Can be eaten raw.
  • Can be eaten after modest processing (soaking and cooking)
  • Has an indigenous name in a native tongue amongst several cultures.
  • Has a short shelf life.
