Paleo Diet and Low-Income Countries

Harnessing the power of collective knowledge. I'm currently doing research on the prospects of incorporating paleo (evolutionary is probably better in this sense) approaches to food systems in developing countries. Think, for example, Haiti, where agricultural research is scant, there is little in the way of 'indigenous knowledge' and foods such as eggs can function both as a source of vital nutrients and income for families. 

What research is out there? Scholarly or non-scholarly? How can a paleo approach be accomodated in resource poor settings?

Through entomophagy. Haitians eat as many vegetables as we do, at least those who have a little parcel of land. The problem is animal foods and fats. Also, the problem is depleted soils in Haiti, so even before getting into nutrition, a rule based society, with laws and governmental initiatives aimed at rebuilding the soil.
