Which of these foods is Paleo friendly?

  • Baby corn
  • Heart of Palm
  • Applsauce

I realize that corn is not Paleo but I'm wondering if baby corn might be considered since the seeds are smaller and we're eating the whole thing.

It's actually super easy to make your own. Just peel,core, and slice some apples (you don't actually have to peel them if they are organic, but I don't like the texture of applesauce with peels). Throw them in the slow cooker on low--no need to add any water or other liquid--and add cinnamon to taste (optional). Check them every few our and stir them around a bit. Once they have reached the texture you prefer, turn the slow cooker off, let the applesauce cool, and eat (or chill, then eat).

This is just a really strange question.

Yeah I usually get the organic unsweetened applesauce. Unfortunately, if you check the ingredients they often cheat by separating the juice form the puree and remixing it to make it sweeter. Sadly, the skin is useful as it's a rich supply of Quercetin.

And the skin is the most interesting part ...

...with the caveat that if you are eating at a restaurant it is probably safe to assume the applesauce has added sugar and should be avoided.

Are you currently at a salad bar? This is the only situation I can think of where you would be picking from these three items...

Not sure on the baby corn. But, I can't think why heart of palm would be a problem; it's a plant food and not a grain or legume. Applesauce made without any added sugar wouldn't really be any different than eating an apple (minus the peel)--especially if you make it yourself. It seems like a lot of paleo followers limit fruit, so you might not want to eat mountains of it, but it would be fine in moderation.

All sound fine, even some baby corn in moderation (as with everything!)
