Eating a Traditional Human Diet

I am puzzled as to why about 90% of the posts I see on all of the Paleo sites here on FB give recipes for dishes dealing with grain substitutes. This one gives the the following ingredients; flax meal, bananas, berries, honey or maple syrup, almond meal. Many are for dessert recipes with sugar, coconut meal, honey.. Keeping the focus on desserts and substitutes is not what following a Paleo Diet is about. Paleo is about optimizing our diet to meet our nutrient needs and if we are still craving these foods then we need to look at why and to move toward healthy fats, proteins and low glycemic vegetables with very small amounts of fruit.
