Need a guide to shopping for paleo friendly foods? Here it is: The ultimate paleo shopping list.

The Ultimate Paleo Shopping List - everything you need to know for filling your kitchen with Paleo Friendly Foods. #HealthyHappySmart

Going paleo means eating clean, unprocessed and healthy foods. You’ll want to avoid anything in a box. Sticking with the produce section and meat section of the store is the most “paleo” places to be. In fact, your local farmers market might be even better!

Start by removing any food that isn’t paleo from your cabinets, fridge, cupboards and pantry. Then fill it up with the good stuff, using this paleo shopping list as a guide. Donate them to a local food bank or give to a non-paleo friend if you can! This will make room for Paleo goods and keep you from straying away from your new lifestyle.

Use our New Paleo Meal Plan app for helpful weekly meal plans. Save you time and money. Includes a paleo grocery list, too! Download it free here.

Another great tool is our Paleo+ app that will show you anything that is/isn’t paleo. It’s a handy app that can be looked at while shopping right on your mobile phone. Download it free here.

Dairy and Eggs

Dairy: Avoid milk, cream, cheese, yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese or ice cream from a cow/goat. Coconut milk (no sugar added) is an awesome alternative to milk/creams. As well as unsweetened almond milk.

Eggs: Free-range eggs are best.

Fats/Oils

Oils: Olive oil, coconut oil are both the best for cooking.

Nuts/seeds are good friendly fats too, along with nut butters – avoid any with added ingredients like sugar or salt. All natural is best. No peanuts as they are not really a “nut” but are technically a legume.

Spices and Herbs

All spices and herbs are allowed: garlic, basil, oregano, parsley, cilantro, pepper, sea salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, turmeric, mustard seed, poppy seed, sesame seed, etc are all allowed.

Avoid other aisles in the store

You’ll want to avoid the center aisles of the store filled with crackers, cookies, candy, processed cereals, etc. These are not considered paleo and not healthy food choices.
