We’re kicking off new series called Paleo Journeys, in which we interview bloggers, authors, medial practitioners, fitness gurus and those with amazing, life-changing stories about their health and well being journey. As well as talking about their own paleo/primal/holistic lifestyle experience, our guests will share their favourite ingredients, cooking tips and fun facts. The aim of these interviews is to inspire, educate and motivate you to create your own, optimal paleo journey. We’re very excited to have Scott Gooding as our first guest.

How did you discover the paleo/primal diet and lifestyle?
Around 14 years ago I was living in a vegetarian household so my choice to eat meat came under scrutiny from myself more so than from my flatmates. I had been reading around the subject of nutrition and the concept of eating right for your blood type which was popular around that time. After being tested and discovering I was blood type-O which is labelled the “hunter-gatherer” or “caveman” it became clear to me then, as it does now, that we should be eating foods that our ancestors did.
