Really confused on veggies and fruits with Primal eating. I have been to MDA website many times but am just finally reading the Primal Diet book - on Chapter 2. I am borrowing it from the library.
He is clear about eating no grains and sugars. It looks like no potatoes and perhaps no corn. I found an article where he says “limit starchy foods like beans (not sure if that’s dried beans or green beans?), sweet potatoes, beets, etc”
So I went to look up high starchy vegetables and am wondering if these are ok for Primal eating and how often?
Corn, sweet potatoes, dried beans, lentils, green beans, peas, winter squash, pumpkin, beets, carrots.
We tend to grow beets, carrots, peas, green beans and winter squash in our garden so we can eat them fresh and organic. Also some of these veggies are very affordable. We do not have the budget for mushrooms, avocado, out of season tomatoes, asparagus.. We mostly eat potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, squash, lettuce and broccoli. I buy frozen asian veggie mixes for stir fries too.
