Gant's suggestion is definitely the most fun.
If you're this concerned about it, you're going to have as many problems with cortisol as you will insulin. Eat a bowl of rice with a pound of stir-fried meat and enjoy the occasional desert.

The best processed paleo food that triumphs most non-paleo in taste is the Vegetable Root Chips (TJ's version of Terra chips). They're scary good and don't last very long around the house when I buy a bag which is why I buy them on occasion only.
100,000 generations of humans have been hunters and gatherers; 500 generations have been agriculturalists; ten have lived in the industrial age; and only one has been exposed to the world of computers.

It could be argued that all grains are legitimate paleo foods as long as they're only eaten occasionally but the least evil options would have to be wild rice, millet and buckwheat which is my favourite because it isn't a grain.
