Paleo Diet Allowable Vegetables

Almost all vegetables are paleo, but you need to be careful here. Vegetables with high starch content such as potatoes and squash tend to have low nutritional value in comparison to the amount of starches/carbs/sugars they contain. While they’re not bad for you, they’re not always that great for you either.
