    Newbee

    Hi, I am new to PB and haven't read everything yet. Was wondering if legumes are allowed. I have been eating gluten free and low-carb and found this bread at Julian Bakery called "Purity Bread". It is made with flax and almond flour, but also has garbanzo beans, navy beans for moistness. Is that a good thing or not?

    as a general rule no beans of any type are really paleo/primal

    This is true. When transitioning to primal, I think it is best to avoid the gluten-free/low carb substitutes (breads, baked goods, etc.). It is better to focus on quality meats, veggies, and fats!

    Thank you for the information. Guess I will start true primal after I finish this bread. Way too expensive to throw away.

    Welcome. I hope primal goes really well for you.

    What are your stats and goals? Are you trying to lose weight (fat) or accomplish something else?

    I eat a few beans. They are marginal to primal. But not evil. For sure don't throw out that bread.

    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.

    Legumes are "not allowed" but they are one of the fringe foods - the really truly "not allowed" foods are industrial oil, gluten grains, and sugar. The rest is not, really, all that huge a deal for most. I'll eat some beans once in a while.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
