Paleo - What TO EAT - What NOT to EAT

The essentials of a Paleolithic Diet are: Pretty simple to follow :-)

Eat NONE of the following:
Grains- including bread, pasta, noodles
Beans- including string beans, kidney beans, lentils, peanuts, snow-peas and peas
Dairy products

DO eat the following:
Meat, chicken and fish. (When eating beef, grass-fed is preferred. You can find this at Whole Foods. If you cannot get grass-fed beef, choose the leanest cuts available.)
Vegetables (especially root vegetables, but definitely not including potatoes or sweet potatoes)
Nuts, eg. walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, almond. Do not eat peanuts (a bean) or cashews (a family of their own)
Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.
Try to increase your intake of:
Root vegetables- carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas, Swedes
Organ meats- liver and kidneys (I accept that many people find these unpalatable and won’t eat them)
