Paleo Diet Seafood

Paleo Diet Vegetables
Paleo diet vegetables. Almost all vegetables foods are on the paleo diet as well – but you need to be careful in discerning the difference here. Vegetables with a high starch content – such as potatoes,and squashes - tend to have low nutritional value in comparison to the amount of starches/carbs/sugars they contain. While they’re not bad for you,they’re not always that great for you either.
- Artichoke hearts
- Brussels sprouts
- Peppers (All Kinds)
- Green Onions
- Butternut Squash*
- Acorn Squash*
- Sweet Potato*
Paleo Diet Oils/Fats
Paleo diet oils. Contrary to popular belief,fat doesn’t make you fat – carbs do (and the standard american diet has a ton of them!). Natural oils and fats are your body’s preferred way of creating energy so it’s best to give your body what it’s asking for! The following are some of the best types of paleo oils and fats that you can give your body if you’re in need of some additional sustained energy.
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Macadamia Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Grass fed Butter
Paleo Diet Nuts
We love nuts! (does that sound bad?) Nuts are decidedly paleo. Be careful as cashews are high in fat and for some reason,they’re incredibly easy to eat an entire jar in one sitting (that’s just not us,is it?). If you’re trying to lose weight,limit the amount of nuts you’re consuming – otherwise have it. I mean,after all,you can’t beat a good almond/pecan/walnut nut mix can you?
- Pine Nuts
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Macadamia Nut
Please note – peanuts are NOT actually a nut & are not paleo. For more on this see our legume article.
Paleo Diet Fruits**
Paleo diet fruits are not only delicious,but they’re great for you. Fruits,even paleo-approved ones,contain large amounts of fructose which – while much better than HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup) – is still sugar. If you’re lookign to lose weight on the paleo diet,you’ll want to cut back on the fruit intake and focus more on the vegetables allowed on the paleo diet. However,feel free to have 1-3 servings of fruit a day and enjoy yourself.Check out this list of paleo diet fruits and see if you’re not hungry by the end! (we’ll admit,we’re partial to the blackberries).
- Pineapple Guava
*You’ll notice,while these starchy foods are great for energy replacement for paleo diet athletes who are spending long periods of time exercising and need some of the starchier foods on the paleo diet to sustain their energy levels. As long as you’re training,you’ll find these are great sources of energy replacements,especially post- workouts. However,if you’re trying to lose weight on the paleo diet,you’ll want to limit the quantities of these that you’re eating.
