Nope, based on grain. Can't have that either.

paleo = real food.

plantains are real food, thus paleo, considering bananas are one of the least healthy fruit I imagine plantains are in a similar boat. So, neither great nor horrible. If this is the worst thing you're eating you're doing pretty good.

They are good.

My Husband is Jamaican, I've had them sweet, as fried plantains and more starchy when they are green and boiled.

Not really, since milk is "real" and paleo says it's out. Same is true of legumes. A green bean is pretty much edible up front, but is technically out by most paleo standards. So while paleo is a sub-set of real food, it is not all-inclusive.

Rice, wheat, milk, are also real foods. And bananas kick ***.

Neither rice nor wheat are real food, go pick some wild, eat it, and see how you feel. Theyre both toxic in their natural state and require a good amount of processing to eat. Once processed, white rice isnt bad for you, it has no negative cost on your body. However it is all empty calories, so it has a high negative opportunity cost so to speak in that you could be eating something much better. Wheat is always bad for you, even if you spend all sorts of time soaking/sprouting/fermenting etc the end result is still bad for you (though less so) and you took two days processing it. Overall paleo seems to be on the fence about Milk. Milk and cheese not so great, butter just fine. Most people seem to do better without the carbier versions. As to whether or not its real food, who's to say it is? It's for calves to drink, not necessarily us. Just like cows eat grass and we don't.

This is a ridiculous post. What are you basing the term "real food" on? If ts only food if you can eat it in its natural raw state then apply that to some raw meat, potatoes or greens that need to be boiled to be edible. If its not food because its been altered then you can scratch off any fruit, nut or vegetable that has been genetically altered to take out toxins or make it more edible.

Wheat and rice are most certainly food, they sustain billions of lives every day and have been eaten for some say up to 100,000 years. As for paleos take on dairy, well **** paleo. Im not going to live in fear of awesome healthy foods that have been staples for centuries because of guys like Cordain or Toubes think grains or dairy or all carbs in general are somehow magically bad for you even though most of the obesity and health problems have only come in the last half a century.

You should actually read "Toubes" sometime. You clearly haven't.
