In general Stone Age people consumed more protein and ate less carbohydrate than most humans do today, with fat intake probably about the same level; although this was a balanced blend of fatty acids (Omega-3: Omega-6) and relatively high levels of MUFA and PUFA, rather than today's focus on Omega-6, consequently Stone Age people were mainly free of the signs and symptoms of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Starch came from sources including grain, nuts and sea beet (the ancestor of beetroot and sugar beet) and evidence from Grotte des Pigeons cave in northern Morocco, indicates that extensive snacking on acorns and pine nuts may have led to some tooth decay. Analyses of the chemicals in Ötzi's hair suggests that meat may have made up between 10%-30% of the Iceman's diet.

Alaskan archaeologists have found the earliest known evidence that Paleoindians cooked and ate chum salmon ( at least 11,500 years ago.

The elongated cobble of sandstone interpreted as a peste-grinder (which measures around 13cm long), is broken at one end and rounded at the other, with longitudinal fissures on its surface.

It is assumed by researchers that the rounded end was used to crush seeds, while the stone’s flat surface allowed to grind the broken seeds into flour.

Meadowlands and forest edges were filled with many edible wild plants, such as lilies and onions.

The bulbs of these plants are very nutritious, but their energy is locked up in a dense, indigestible carbohydrate called inulin.

In a high status grave site of a 12,000 year-old Natufian Shaman found in a cave in Northern Israel, was the remains of roasted tortoise meat, thought to be eaten by the tribe as part of a burial ceremony.

Analysis pottery and middens found at Durrington Walls (a late Neolithic settlement site thought to be the residence for the builders of nearby Stonehenge 25 BC) reveal their eating habits with organised feasts of roasted of pigs and cattle.

The grain from both meals was a highly processed einkorn wheat bran, possibly eaten in the form of fire-cooked flatbread.

Found near Ötzi's body were chaff and grains of einkorn and barley and also seeds of flax and poppy, as well as kernels of sloes (small plumlike fruits of the blackthorn tree) and various seeds of berries growing in the wild.

Livestock (often under-weight) came from various locations and were slaughtered and butchered on site.

The main methods of cooking meat are believed to be boiling and roasting in pots probably around indoor hearths and outdoor pits.
