Is coffee allowed on the Paleo Diet?

It's a bean. It isn't something you could eat (drink?) if you were naked and all you had was a sharp stick.

john, drinking coffee is probably not strictly speaking consistent with the paleo diet. I get the distinct impression that Cordain, himself, would prefer you to drink tea. But as far as I know drinking coffee doesn't give you a bunch of problematic anti-nutrients (lectins), does provide some bioflavanoid anti-oxidants, and does improve athletic and cognitive performance. (Teas and stimulants of various sorts have probably been part of the human condition for quite a while.)

Personally, I drink too much of it: black, no sweetner (though I try to drink four or five cups of tea a day as well). I figure it is the least of my worries.

like marc says, it's not stricly paleo, but we're not stricly paleolithic, so bent rules within reason make sense to me.

stick to espresso with nothing added. but don't go nuts on it - maybe 2 cups/day max. less is better.

Thanks guys. Not strictly paleo, but hey. As Emerson (I don't agree with everything he said) said:

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."
