Jai Hobbs and his wife Marlies founded the Paleo Café chain there one year ago. They now have 12 restaurants and believe that the Paleo diet popularity will continue to spread.
“Humans haven’t changed much for 2.5 million years yet our diet has, especially in the past 30 years,” said Jai. “We are starting to understand that that is having a massive effect on our health.”
The traditional Paleo diet involves eliminating sugar, grains and dairy, while eating unprocessed protein such as salmon, healthy fats such as avocado and non-starchy vegetables such as asparagus. “It’s about eating good, clean food that our bodies are designed to eat,” summed up Jai.
