Alton Brown did an AMA on reddit today. Here’s his take on paleo:
I have to say that although I do think the American diet is too grain dependent, I don’t think that the meat-heavy Paleo approach is right either. We’ve evolved as omnivores and that means we should eat a bit of everything…in my opinion.
I doubt any of the Paleo-TM gurus will lose any sleep over AB’s two cents, but there it is.
