Sanitas Per Escam…Via Paleo?

That was a Latin phrase I’d not heard of prior to yesterday.  What does it mean, you might wonder?

Simply, Heath Through Food.

Not only that, though; it’s also the name of an idea of a Belgian Entrepreneur which would allow for restaurants to use the representative insignia to indicate that a particular dish on a menu is ‘good for you’.

Some restauranteurs like the idea and have signed on, others, not so much as they feel it would make the other offerings on their menu indirectly ‘not good for you’.

So what has this got to do with Paleo?

Well, here’s my question- when is someone going to come up with a Paleo stamp of approval?  We already see notations for

  • gluten free
  • dairy free
  • vegetarian
  • vegan

And although Paleo is still a bit niche, it wasn’t that long ago that gluten free or vegan were right there in the minority, too. 

So, who’s with me?  

Let’s put our Paleo heads together and see if we can’t come up with something?  Having  a Paleo option in restaurants is, as many of you who are Paleo know, something that does not require much tweaking in many an eatery; it would just mean having the chef sign up with making the notation.

This is a real practicality that is far likely to happen sooner than a fantasy of all cafes going Paleo overnight!
