It’s the latest trend when it comes to diet. Loren Cordain, one of the founders of the paleo movement, claims that the human metabolism did not change more than 0,02% since pre-history, and that we should embrace the cavern men’s diet. Sandra Cardoso Monteiro, this restaurant’s owner, believes we don’t need to go that far: “We just have to look at our grandparents”, she says. It is possible, according to Susana, to achieve all the benefits of a paleo diet without becoming fundamentalist: an 85% paleo diet will do. At Paleo Kitchen, there are no such things as lactose, refined sugar or preservatives. All the ingredients are biological and the fish comes from sustainable fishing. The recipes have low glycaemia levels and use only “good fats” (from salmon and dried fruits, for instance). Formality does not enter this place: one can eat at all times of the day, and that’s why Susana prefers to call it a bistro.
