About [[m:####Paleoista, by Nell Stephenson
A woven basket of berries, foraged greens, and a wild boar with a spear in its side––these were the feasts of Paleolithic humans, who ate only what they could hunt and gather on the move. Grains, dairy, and legumes were inedible to our early ancestors, and adherents to the paleo diet maintain that our bodies are best served by eating that same pre-agrarian diet. Nutrition coach, accomplished Ironman athlete, and exercise instructor Nell Stephenson guides her clients to vibrant healthy lifestyles within the diet's parameters.
In an interview with Lava magazine, Stephenson outlined her journey to the paleo diet, which began by identifying a latent gluten allergy in 2006 and continued on with her co-penning cookbooks with Dr. Loren Cordain, the “father” of the diet. Her experiences led to her current philosophy, which mimics the Hippocratic view that food should be medicine and vice versa. On CBS, Stephenson demonstrated some of her recipes and explained that one of the goals of her Paleoista book was to assure women especially that despite the caveman-esque name, the diet is accessible to anyone.
Stephenson channels her enthusiasm for and expertise in paleo living through diet and lifestyle services designed to introduce clients to pre-Neolithic ways. Phone or Skype consultations help determine individual plans of action and abilities to hunt and trap wild avocados. After that, clients can commission her for custom nutrition plans, more hands-on coaching, cooking lessons, and kitchen makeovers. :m]]
