You see some compromises on here as always. The main things we try to stay away from are wheat and sugar (that includes excessive fruit - just leaves you hungrier).
I usually only shop once a week. So we keep some cheap shelf-stable staples on hand in case of emergency - aka natural peanut butter and fruit jam and rice cakes for when we run out of food for lunches by Friday, ha ;) Not paleo, but that's our choice.
We do what helps us stick with this thing long term. We are coming up our 4th anniversary of being a paleo (-ish?, -mostly? -primal? -whatever label you like) family. Shooting for what makes both our bodies, minds, and budget feel healthy.
I think as time goes on we get a better and better handle on how to eat so that we feel good without complicating our life too much… always learning… have a good week!
