🤔 Common Questions

Is granola allowed on a paleo diet?

It can be if you make/buy the right granola. You want a granola that uses nuts and seeds versus oats, and only a small amount of natural sweeteners. It can be hard to find this in the store so I recommend making your own.

Is granola good or bad for you?

It’s good in moderation and if you make it yourself, you can limit the amount of sugar you use in it which will make it healthier.

Why are oats not allowed on paleo?

Although oats are healthy they do contain anti-nutrients that the Paleo diet tries to avoid. They also can be contaminated with gluten.
