What nonpaleo foods do you still eat and why?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created September 25, 2010 at 6:21 AM

Are there any nonpaleo foods you still eat with any kind of regularity? What obvious cheats do you still have in your fridge? For me, it's ranch dressing and mayo, because I like em and I am too lazy to make my own and can't find any store brands that don't have canola oil in em. There are other cheats I may partake in with rarity, but those are the two chronic offenders that are actually still in my house, eaten, and then replaced by me again on a regular basis.

...I feel like I should buy stocks in Lindt. I eat ridiculous amounts of the 90%.

Good Scottish Haggis. It does have oats in, but it also has heart, liver and lungs.

what-nonpaleo-foods-do-you-still-eat-and-why?

This morning for my breakfast I had fresh hot venison haggis with neeps and tatties from a stall at the Edinburgh farmers market (not my photo).

Sushi. I lean heavily towards sashimi, but when my itamae brings something he made personally for me. I eat it. I have informed him that wheat makes me sick, but he will bring me things with Rice sometimes

I devour it happily.

Craft beers. Poison - but there is a social aspect to act of drinking beer I find hard to avoid. And it is more common for me to be around beer drinkers than lets say red wine or tequila drinkers.

Eden Foods' Hot Sesame Oil: a dribble or two over some finished protein is seriously delicious. Hate the omega6/possible rancidness of it but it is so dang good.

Sushi every once in awhile. I regularly use raw butter from grass fed dairy cows. Overall, I don't think these are that bad. I never cheat with gluten.

ketchup. I found one without sugar and very simple ingredients, I am too lazy to make my own. But I use it very rarely.

When I am visiting and someone made food which is gluten free, but has some grains or sugar. Like today my friend made lasagna with rice noodles and rice flower ginger cake. it was good and I feel the social ties are important.

oh, and dairy- cream, butter. sometimes chocolate.

Cheese, and movie popcorn. I have a large bucket, unbuttered, every Saturday. With a large Diet Coke. Then I try to keep it clean (LC/VLC) the rest of the week.

Oh yeah, and Grizzly Wintergreen.
