If you're trying the Paleo Diet then you should be prepared to do a lot of cooking. That's because the plan cuts out processed foods since primitives didn't have microwaves to heat up frozen pizza.
Although many of the foods on a Paleo Diet, like meat and vegetables, aren't surprising, some excluded items are shocking. For example, grains, legumes, dairy, and refined vegetable oils, are prohibited.
A typical Paleo dinner could include grilled chicken with steamed asparagus and fruit for dessert, for example.
To make your next trip to the store easy, we put together this shopping list with foods recommended from The Paleo Diet and Everyday Health. Although it is not comprehensive, it is a good starting point.
Nuts, nut butters, and seeds
Instant pot for quick meals
Good knife set
Containers for meal prep
Blender or food processor to make sauces
You'll want to make sure you avoid all types of legumes, dairy, cereal grains, refined sugar, potatoes, processed foods, and refined vegetable oils, such as canola or peanut oil.
However, that doesn't mean you can never enjoy a bakery cookie, or a glass of wine. The Paleo Diet does allow for three non-Paleo meals per week, according to ThePaleoDiet.com.
