In what ancient society did cavepeople have vegetable shortening? As if that isn't a highly processed "food"! I'm so tired of everything that doesn't contain chemicals or flour being called paleo. Anymore, it is just another trendy catchphrase used to equivocatingly designate a food as healthy. To see Mother Earth News jump on the bandwagon is disappointing.
