an imaginative look a palaeolithic life

Palaeolithic protein powder

There really is such a thing:  protein powder aimed at paleo dieters.  Here’s a picture of it:

I don’t get it.  A diet that forbids all processed foods, yet protein that’s been highly processed to the point of being a powder that you can dissolve in water to make a meal replacement shake is allowed.   Chocolate flavoured too…

It created a whole bunch of amusing mental images…

neanderthals sneaking up on unsuspecting protein powder, ready to strike:

So if you want to “eat like a caveman” but don’t have time to hunt and gather your food, you can always make meal replacement shakes from palaeolithic protein powder….. like cause that’s authentic paleo, errr, you know…

Palaeolithic protein powder…. you made Homo erectus cry!  “I never ate stuff like that!  And it tastes yucky!”

    Hilarious! I love the pics you drew! I think the packaging looks like “caveman feed!”
