If you’re like me, you probably love feta cheese. It’s tangy, salty, and perfect for adding to salads or pizza. But is it paleo? The answer to that question is a little bit complicated. Let’s take a look at the definition of the paleo diet and see if we can come up with an answer.
Feta Cheese is Paleo safe, just be careful what other foods you mix it with 👍!
Why Is Feta Cheese OK on Paleo?
The Paleo diet is all about eating like our ancestors did. That means consuming mostly fruits, vegetables, meat, and seafood. So technically, feta cheese is paleo because it’s made from milk. However, some people on the paleo diet choose to avoid dairy products because they believe they can cause inflammation in the body.
If you’re following the paleo diet and avoiding dairy, then feta cheese is not for you. However, if you don’t have a problem with consuming dairy products, then feel free to enjoy feta cheese in moderation. Just be careful of what other foods you mix it with. For example, if you’re having a salad with feta cheese and ranch dressing, that’s probably not going to be very paleo friendly.
