I was just wondering , is there any meaningful connection between paleo diet and anthroposophic/biodynamic food philosophy that anyone knows of ? I was triggered asking this because of the font used for PaleoHacks on this site which is typically anthroposophical, and then started seeing some things in common like reestablishing and respecting the true and natural need of our body with teh things we feed it and surround it with.

Biodynamic "Anthroposophic food philosophy" is based on an agrarian system establishing farming and ranching practices in harmony with natural forces including the stars and various processes (calcium, iron, etc) within the soil and atmosphere. When you water and harvest or weed is as important as the kind of water used and the methods.

The Anthroposophic diet is basically vegetarian and grain based. Though it does emphasize eating locally grown and seasonal produce. Like Paleo the Anthroposophic diet encourages unprocessed food and discourages additives and chemicals of any kind. Their pest control and composting methods are uniquely brilliant.

There is nothing linking Rudolf Steiner's curious ... "ideas" ... and evolutionary biology. I'd think one might be able to make a tenuous connection with ideas of WAPF.
