So, ancient people pretty much ate what we eat.

"The researchers are using a wide range of techniques — from examining microscopic marks on ancient tools to analysing DNA residues inside pots. Some investigators are even experimentally recreating 12,000-year-old meals using methods from that time. Looking even further back, evidence suggests that some people ate starchy plants more than 100,000 years ago."

But I don’t think we ate meat every day.

@Sandra @kensanata

we ate Mastodon yesterday, so today it's just sweet potato
is there no Mastodon left?
*checks*
nope… no more Mastodon… pretty sure that was the last one………

@sohkamyung You mean paleo-diet got it all wrong? Who would have thunk! 😜

@sohkamyung ironic that the pseudoscientific paleo diet provides a teachable moment about how the absence of evidence of grains in ancient diets was merely preservation bias
