If you are following a Paleo diet, you can make adjustments to your meal plan. If you see a grain listed for one of your meals, you can swap it for a Paleo approved starch such as:

  • squash
  • yams
  • sweet potato
  • beets

These are on the higher end of starchy vegetables, therefore your quantities shouldn't differ too much from what is recommended on your meal plan. Just be mindful to keep portions similar. 

Feel free to replace your grains or legumes with less starchier options such as

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Carrots
  • Bell Peppers 
  • Califlower
  • Artichoke hearts 

If you feel this is not enough food, you can double the portion size because these contain less carbohydrates than the recommended grain or bread. 

**Avocado is a popular Paleo food, but is high in fat. If you want to swap avocado out for your grains and legumes, cut the portion in half.
Example: Meal 1 is 1 cup of grains, can swap for 1/2 avocado or 2 grains can be swapped for 1 whole avocado.**
