Re: Vegan Paleo
In all these pages of thread, I've lost track of what we're even debating... So, to clarify, my position is that:
* Grains are an important food for all of the modern cultures with the longest lifespans.
* Therefore there is no evidence that grains should be universally avoided.
* And therefore grains are a perfectly acceptable source of calories.
While entertaining, the whole debate about what constitutes a "staple," a "grain-based" diet, or a "grain-rich" diet isn't particularly relevant to my underlying point. I'm certainly not arguing that grains should be anyone's *primary* source of calories, so go ahead and hit that straw man as hard as you'd like.
