Paleo Fish & Seafood Tips

Fish is certainly considered a major player in the paleo diet, which focuses both on eating natural, clean foods and eliminating toxins while also leveraging optimal nutrient ingestion. While providing both important macro and micronutrients, seafood adds diversity to protein options—extending “meat” choices beyond just land animals.

In our modern society, we’re used to special storage rules from one food item to another. Fruit juice, for instance, and many canned goods can sit in the pantry forever but will need to be chilled once opened. Potatoes kept in the dark, grains kept in dry conditions, and a whole slew of things that need to be kept cold at all times or we risk that unpleasant smell of rotting protein. However, as time passes and food poisoning scares stack up, we’ve gotten into the habit of simply throwing everything in the fridge. But is refrigerating sweet potatoes really
