This is genius.  I'm trying to convert my mother and having a tough time because she doesn't think she can eat anything with this WOE.  I love it.  Thank you!

Don't suppose you have a .png/higher quality image of it do you?

Hi,

I've just started on the Paleo lifestyle, and i'm gathering all the info I need, but i'm reading alternative options on if milk (semi skimmed) is allowed.

Through my logic by both flowcharts as it came from an animal so it should be allowed. Any help on this will be welcomed.

The flow chart is more a humorous illustration than an actual guide.  No, milk is not paleo, especially skim milk.

The chart says, "Is it a sweet potato?" (if yes), "eat it, your muscles will dig it." Based on my personal experience, my muscles do not dig sweet potato, sorry (unless you consider aches and pains and lower extremity edema "digging" sweet potato). The problem with one-size-fits-all flowcharts is they don't fit everyone and none of them that I've seen so far fit me. What's missing from them is qualifier words like "might", "may be", "perhaps" and "YMMV".

Also, Karen Pendergrass, of Paleo Approved reported that a single sweet potato causes feet swelling for her:

I'm wondering about the honey and maple syrup.  Another paleo group that I follow actually had honey home remedy recipes.

Yeah, raw fermented honey has been a Paleo win for me, honey has been consumed by humans throughout our entire history and beyond, going back millions of years, and no hunter gatherer society that has access to honey has ever been found to pass it up.
