To answer the question, yes honey is Paleo. That said, it is still not something to consume any major quantity of given it's high sugar content. Paleo doesn't necessarily make it good for you.
I prefer the whole food route following a workout too. Just finished my PWO meal of 1/2lb goat liver with onions and sauerkraut and a sweet potato with 1 tbsp coconut oil and some cinnamon. Polishing off the macadamias now. The people at work think I'm odd. One lady said "You're eating that for breakfast!??!"
