Reviewed carefully by our Chief Science Officer and 30-year Paleo eating veteran, Mark J. Smith, Ph.D., our Official Paleo Grocery List shows only those foods that meet our stringent, science-based criteria for Paleolithic eating, based on Dr. Loren Cordain's decades of research and the latest food science.

Our grocery list is grouped by grocery department for your convenience:

  • Fruits & Vegetables: Includes our suggested staple produce to maximize versatility and nutritious meals.
  • Fruits: Includes a link to our online, sortable table of fruits and their sugar content (save it on your phone).
  • Meats & Seafood: We offer detailed guidance on cuts of meat, plus specific fish and seafood.
  • Nuts & Seeds, Oils & Vinegars, Spices & Other Flavorings: Kick your meals up a notch with these flavorful, Paleo foods.
  • Packaged Foods: We list some packaged foods that are often widely available without added sodium, sugar, preservatives, and other additives.
  • Your 85/15 Picks: The Paleo Diet is flexible so that it's sustainable, so we offer space for your treats to eat no more than 15% of the time.
