I first read The Clan of the Cave Bear in high school; I don’t remember if it was 9th or 10th grade. Ever since, the series has been my favorite. They are my go-to books when I want to read but nothing else in the house is holding my interest.
I’ve always been fascinated with the Ice Age… cavemen, Neanderthals, saber-tooth tigers, mammoths… and how people must have lived back then. I think that is why I love the series so much … many readers complain about the author’s excessive descriptions about the world and the caveman life, but those are my favorite parts.
So when I first read about the paleo “diet,” I was intrigued. I did a lot of reading, and it just plain makes sense to me. So I tried it.
