The paleo approach to eating focuses on avoiding specific ingredients. Paleo typically increase the fat, protein, and fiber of your meals while avoiding excess carb intake from sources other than fruits and vegetables. This approach is great for reducing sugar and increasing nutritional quality to meals.
Below is the full list of ingredients we avoid with our paleo meals:
- grains (all including quinoa)
- refined sugar
- dairy (ghee/clarified butter permitted)
- processed foods
- artificial flavors and sweeteners
- refined vegetable oils
- fruit juice
- potatoes (sweet potatoes/yams permitted)
We understand that some follow different standards for the paleo diet, but this is the best start! Plus, if you want an alternative paleo approach (like auto-immune paleo [AIP]), you can set meal preferences on your account to avoid other ingredients.
