Have some salmon for breakfast; balance the omegas out.

It's an animal. Why on earth would you consider it un-paleo?

Turkey is paleo but it has an inordinate amount of omega 6 in the fat. Like amounts comparable to corn oil, so I like to make poultry a once a week thing. Still paleo, and numm num nummers.

edit: I was wrong, only about a third of corn oil. Still sub-optimal if eaten too frequently though. Holy shit corn oil is death. One tbs is all the omega 6 I eat in 2 days on a very high fat diet.

Turkeys, like geese, do very well on a pasture diet of grass and bugs. If you can find a pasture raised turkey I bet it would have a fantastic ratio of omega 3 and 6 fats. Then again, turkey is pretty lean to begin with, so not sure if the fat profile would have much of an affect on your diet.

It might be unpaleo if it was the kind that's injected with solution, known as a "self-basting" turkey. The solution might have weirdo chemicals in addition to salt.
