What does Paleo Inspired mean?
In the simplest terms, Paleo eating is about consuming the foods we are meant to eat. It means eating nuts, berries, seeds, vegetables, eggs, fish and lean meats. It also means avoiding grains, dairy, legumes (e.g. soy, peanuts) and refined sugars. Our digestive systems haven’t changed much since the days of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. However, our food supply has changed significantly, especially in the last 50 years. Unfortunately, many of today's processed foods contain ingredients that are actually toxic to the body. This is why the incidence of allergies, obesity, diabetes and heart disease has dramatically increased recently. The Paleo eating style encourages us to return to eating the foods made with ingredients our bodies were meant to eat.
We know that there’s no going back 50,000 years to a time when hunting and gathering real food was a part of our daily routine. So we have tried to make it easier for you to find great tasting, nutritious snacks by doing the hunting and gathering for you. We strive to provide real food with incredible taste.

Chris Running, started Caveman Foods because he was inspired by the Paleo style of eating. Five years ago he tried Paleo for the first time. After following the eating style for 90 days, he lost 30 pounds, had higher energy levels and generally felt better. Despite being a lifelong swimmer and fitness buff, the Paleo lifestyle had a profound effect on his health and well being. He was a believer and started a company that could offer foods that are Paleo Inspired. When he is not busy running the company, Chris enjoys swimming in Lake Tahoe, kayaking, paddle boarding and taking long walks with his wife Rebecca and dog Wally.
