If you're new to Paleo and are wondering which foods to enjoy and which to avoid, here is the basic food list to follow for your first 30 days.



  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Meat (grassfed preferred)
  • Poultry
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Healthy fats/oils (duck fat, ghee, coconut oil, lard, olive oil)
  • BLACK coffee and tea
  • Seasonings
  • A few starches such as parsnips, sweet potatoes, turnips, etc.
  • Nuts and seeds (chia, walnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, etc.)
  • Kambucha (one a day)

Completely Avoid:

  • All grain (rice, bread, crackers, donuts, etc.)
  • Gluten-Free versions of the list above (i.e. if it comes in a box that says 'gluten-free' it's probably no!)
  • "Sprouted grains" such as quinoa and oatmeal
  • Corn and all corn products (corn syrup)
  • Soy and all soy products (tofu)
  • Legumes (black beans, pinto beans, chickpeas)
  • Refined sugars
  • Peanuts and peanut butter
  • Dairy products
  • Soda/candy
  • Beer (and other alcohol made from grain)
  • Foods with chemical sweeteners or sugar alcohols
  • Foods made with GMOs
  • Seed oils (canola oil, corn oil, safflower oil)

Avoid for 30 Days:

  • Juice
  • White Potatoes
  • Grassfed dairy or raw dairy
  • Grain-free Paleo treats
  • Natural sugars (raw honey, maple syrup)
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate (even dark chocolate!)
  • Dried fruit
