Unlike SCD and GAPS, Paleo is not a set diet. Instead, it's
a philosophy about eating, with several variations. The idea
to eat foods that were traditionally eaten by hunter-gatherer people for thousands of years before modern agriculture
and processed foods.
Strict paleo is grain free, legume free and dairy free, but as people get healthier there are several variations of Paleo that allow and encourage certain dairy products.
A great resource for following the Paleo diet is Practical Paleo by Diane Sanflippo. It explains both the why and the how of the paleo diet and has 30-day meal plans focused on a variety of health issues.
The recipes are detailed, tasty and easy to follow. For more information on the Paleo diet you can check out the following websites: marksdailyapple.com, everydaypaleo.com, lifeasaplate.com and nomnompaleo.com and the following books: Primal Body Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas, Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson.
Another good resource on eating traditional foods is Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. Her recommendations are not as strict as other diets, and they include many delicious recipes with sensible guidelines. It also contains guidance about eating whole natural foods and includes a recipe section for making naturally fermented vegetables and beverages.
