It seems nothing would be more Paleolithic than cooking over an open fire in the middle of nature.

It's hot, y'all. It's so hot, we've been living on cold salads, Paleo Japchae (cold Korean sweet potato noodles), summer strawberries right out of the fridge, and ice cream. In honor of National Ice Cream Day (our new favorite holiday?), we realized we should do a deep dive into the research in order to bring you the [...]
