That's only the mainstream version of the Paleo diet.
If you want to follow the "true" paleo diet, by which I mean the diet actually followed by paleolithic man, you would be consuming a modest amount of grains. They would be minimally processed. There is a lot of evidence to suggest that man paleolithic peoples had rudimentary tools for processing basic grains and consumed them on a regular basis.
I don't think they were pouring Corn Flakes into their stone bowls, but I do think they were eating more than most modern day paleo adherents think.
