Our JERF approach is very similar to paleo, but here are some foods you may find within a real food template, that wouldn't fit into a strict Paleo approach:
* Rice malt syrup. As it is made from rice, a grain, it is not an approved Paleo sweetener. We use small amounts of rice malt syrup as it is a fructose free substitute.
* Goat’s feta. As it is a dairy product, it’s not strictly Paleo. Goat’s milk is a more tolerable form of caesin (A2). If you have a lactose intolerance, you may also find you can tolerate goat’s feta, but this will come down to individual tolerance.
* Chickpeas. Legumes (and yes, peanuts are legumes) are not consumed on a Paleo diet, due to the supposed high phytic acid content. Paleo supporters believe this interferes with nutrient absorption, but new research now shows this may only be an issue in situations of poor gut health.
All LCHF Endurance recipes can easily fit into a balanced paleo template and only minor substitutes will need to be made if you do not consume the above foods.
