The Paleo Food list, to put it simply, is all foods that are natural, organic, wild and unprocessed BUT EXCLUDES all grain and dairy. Do not be shocked at this revelation as there is more than enough included and allowed foods that you will not even miss the bad habit of grain and dairy. The Paleo Food List 'allowed foods' are more than enough to make mealtimes exciting, satisfying and flavoursome. Bearing in mind that the use of spices and herbs is not limited in any way.

NB: LEGUMES are also NOT part of the Paleo list. The legumes as we know them are the seeds of the plant and a toxin is ingeniously produced in order to prevent grazing animal from eating them..Therefore even sprouted legumes contain the toxin (saponin) and cooking does not reduce or eradicate it.

MEATS: all meats (preferably wild/organic) are allowed as long as the cut is lean with all fat trimmed off inclusive of organ meats eg liver etc

POULTRY: chicken, duck and game bird - skinless.

EGGS: chicken, duck, goose, etc: 6 eggs a week is the limited remembering to count in any egg or eggs used in a recipe.

SEAFOOD: all species available; whitefish, redfish, game fish etc; shellfish, lobster, crab, mussels etc etc preferably of course wild.

OILS: the most popular is olive oil however other oils such as avocado and nut oils are also acceptable and some Paleo food lists advise ghee can be used.

Organic or wild is the preferred option! Wherever possible source locally grown, seasonal organic produce. Enquire about local farmers' markets - these markets are often the best option for fresh and cheap produce. Eating seasonal available produce is part of a healthy lifestyle - the seasons and our nutritional needs are linked and specifically designed this way for us by none other than mother nature herself.

There is some controversy over the use of root vegetables and if you must have them use in moderation particularly if you find weight loss is slow. However nothing stop you from using the leaves of the bulb or root vegetables.

I am sure by now you have realised that there is more than adequate option of foods to enable you to enjoy every meal, everyday for the rest of your healthy life.
