Paleo Diet Allowable Oils, Fats and Nuts

Paleo Diet Oils/Fats
Contrary to popular belief, fat doesn’t make you fat; carbs do (and the Standard American Diet contains a ton of them!). Natural oils and fats are your body’s preferred sources of creating energy, so it’s best to give your body what it’s asking for. The following are some of the best types of paleo diet oils and fats that you can give your body if you’re in need of some additional energy.

Coconut oil Olive oil Macadamia oil
Avocado oil Grass-fed butter

 

Paleo Diet Nuts
We love nuts and they are decidedly paleo diet friendly. Be careful though, as cashews are high in fat and, for some reason, it’s incredibly easy to eat an entire jar of them in one sitting (that’s not just us, is it?). If you’re trying to lose weight, limit the amount of nuts you’re consuming. Otherwise, have at it. I mean, you can’t beat a good almond/pecan/walnut mix, can you?

Please note: peanuts are NOT paleo as they’re not actually a nut. They’re a legume!
