So you’ve read the book and you’re ready to go Primal. You’ve purged your pantry and fridge of every last SAD (Standard American Diet) “food” item and you plan on hitting up your local farmers’ market or grocery store to stock up on delicious and nutritious Primal fare. But where do you start? I’ve created this page to take the guesswork out of shopping for Primal foods. Listed below you’ll find a fairly comprehensive list of what to eat on the Primal Blueprint eating plan (if you think something is missing from the list feel free to shoot me a line), aka The Healthiest Foods in the World. No 10 servings of daily grains around here. Just meat, vegetables, eggs, healthy fats, nuts/seeds and fruit.
Links below will take you to one of my Smart Fuel posts where you can learn more about the food, and, in some cases, to recipes featuring the ingredient. As I write about these ingredients in future blog posts this page will be updated with new links, so check back often!
You can also download this Primal Blueprint Shopping List (PDF). Print out a copy, hit your local grocer and start getting Primal today!
