    This helped me when I was getting started, still helps me today. Just print it out and when you have a question of is this Primal or not, refer to it.

    Like potatoes, beans are "OK" once in a while according to Mark.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Beans are important part of the cuisine. Beans are nutritious and economical, and the leftovers are often delicious, Potato is an important food staple and the number one vegetable crop in the world. Potatoes are a very popular food source. Potatoes also supply thiamin, niacin, iron, carbohydrates and small amounts of vegetable protein.

    Potatoes are perfectly fine and primal. I wouldn't eat them at every meal if you're trying to lose weight, but in my opinion they are ideal before and after a workout. Sweet potatoes / yams are ideal, but white potatoes are also great.

    According to the Primal Blueprint plan, beans contain lectins (anti-nutrients) Not primal. Must be properly prepared. Potatoes may be okay for some in strict moderation.

    According to a strict Paleo diet, beans are not Paleo and not in the diet.

    Here's some links to MDA articles.

    Beans are nutritious and economical, and the leftovers are often delicious the next day, wrapped in a tortilla for lunch, potatoes up a notch with nourishment-rich beans and South-of-the-Border flavor in this great dish with lots of family appeal. Crunchy tortilla chips and a hint of citrusy lime along with chiles and healthful garlic make this a crowd-pleaser in early spring or any time.

    As long as you're ok with eating nightshades, I don't see the difference between sweet potato and white potato. Eat whichever you prefer.

    But of course it's wise to avoid potato is if it is fried in vegetable oil.
