Paleo Diet Food List
You want to know what you can and can not eat and remain totally Paleo. Here is my Paleo diet food list.
Free range poultry and grass fed meat.
Fish and shellfish – preferably from sustainable sources – not farmed fish
Vegetables – not beans or some of the starchy tubers and root vegetables
Eggs – free range only
Fruit and berries – bananas and other fruits with a high sugar content should only be eaten in small amounts
Nuts and seeds, as many have high Omega 6 content be sensible
Herbs and spices
Fats – pure animal fats from grass fed meat and free range poultry, olive oil, coconut oil, coconut milk, ghee, avocado oil, fish oil, sesame oil, and nut oil (except peanut oil).
Condiments – sea salt, mustard, fish sauce, olive oil, mayonnaise, salsas and pestos.
All these are part of the Paleo diet food list.
The corner stone of any Paleo diet is fruit and vegetables. One of the best ideas is to take what is listed here and then create a list of your own. You will need to include the ones you and your family like best. You will then have your own Paleo diet food list. You can refer to your list to make sure you are living the Paleo lifestyle.
The following foods should be avoided at all costs.
All grains especially those containing wheat or gluten
Legumes – that means all beans, lentils, peas and peanuts
Dairy products especially milk
The paleo diet food list is to help you to be able to manage your dietary needs without all the toxins and other unnecessary pollutants that come with a lot of grocery store foods that are sold.
There are some foods on the Paleo diet food list that should only be eaten very occasionally, and then only in very limited amounts.
These include natural Sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, molasses, dried fruit, palm sugar and dark chocolate. The chocolate should be a minimum of 70% cocoa, but higher is far better.
