Seafood Guide for the Paleo Diet

As a company, we believe in eating from the source. The Paleo lifestyle encourages "real" and unprocessed foods, including all-sustainable seafood.

What is Paleo?

In its simplest form, it's about modeling your diet like a homo sapien from the Paleolithic Era. The modern caveman or cavewoman.

Lots of vegetables and fruits, grass-fed meat and of course, sustainable seafood.

Unlike most fad diets, Paleo acknowledges that we all need a little wiggle room in our life to enjoy meals with friends, company happy hours, and birthday cake. The 85:15 rule allows 3 non-Paleo meals a week, while encouraging healthy choices for all meals.

For us, choosing Paleo is about just that -- healthier choices. It might take more meal planning, but eating Paleo is also a chance to be more creative and adventurous in what we feed ourselves and our families.
