Keto, Paleo…oh my!
We’ve all heard popular diets like keto and paleo casually mentioned, whether it’s with your

avocado, spinach). (2) The paleo diet stems from what humans could eat during the Paleolithic Era (2.5 million to 10,000 years ago), basically foods that our ancestors would hunt and gather.

compounds.” (5) And fun fact: BOOSTIE is both keto and paleo friendly!
