Porridge May Have a Place in Your Paleo Diet
If you’ve been lamenting the fact that you can’t enjoy a steaming bowl of oatmeal on a wintry morning, it just might be that it actually has a place in a Paleo diet. According to a recent article in New Scientist, hunter-gatherers ate oats as far back as 32,000 years ago, before farming took root.
According to researchers at the University of Florence, this is the earliest known human consumption of oats. They made the discovery after analyzing starch grains on an ancient stone grinding tool from southern Italy.
