With SO much information out there about the Paleo diet sometimes information overload can make people second guess themselves and when all is said and done, not even give paleo a chance. That is why we created this guide. We wanted to make it quick and easy to give this “diet” (although we hate using that term) a chance.
STEP 1: THROW IT ALL AWAY
Throw everything that’s not Paleo away. That means you should grab the trash can and toss: refined sugars, all grains (including rice and corn), starchy tubers, legumes (beans), some meats (anything processed with nitrites and additives like hot dogs), “vegetable” oils (corn, peanut, soybean, cottonseed, and iodized salt (Himalayan is fine).
STEP 2: STOCK UP ON EVERYTHING PALEO
Go to the grocery store and stock up on everything Paleo. It’s extremely important that everything in your kitchen stays paleo friendly. This will force you to eat foods you are supposed to and help your plan stick. Stock up on:
- Organic, naturally-raised, grass-fed meats like: beef, bison, venison, wild game, pork, chicken, and duck.
- Seafood like: salmon, tuna, cod, perch, tilapia, mahi, scallops, and shrimp.
- Vegetables like: spinach, greens, broccoli, cabbage, brussell sprouts, onions, garlic, fresh herbs, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes.
- Fruits and berries like: watermelon, avocado, cantaloupe, mango, peaches, oranges, apples, bananas, blueberries, and plums.
- Fats like: coconut oil, ghee, and coconut milk. Nuts. Seeds.
STEP 3: EAT LIKE YOU MEAN IT
The third and final step to our Organisource Guide to Going Paleo in 3 Easy Steps: Eat like you mean it.
You’ve overhauled your kitchen and pantry and gone on a Paleo shopping spree. Now it’s time to commit. When we say eat like you mean it we mean figure out a regimen that works for you and don’t do anything that will put yourself in a position to quit or fail.
