I tell you what....I'm already missing my oatmeal with soymilk and bananas =(
Cori, roots, shoots and tubers are as much part of the paleolithic diet as meat, fruit and green leafy vegetables. I know it's easy to get caught up in the whole is it/isn't it paleo debate but if there's one thing that defined the diet of stone age hunter-gatherers it's the incredible variety of wild plant and animal foods that were eaten so feel free to eat starchy fruit and vegetables if you want to, just remember that the key to good health is variety and as long as you don't allow any single food to dominate your diet you'll be fine.
