So you’re ready to go lectin-free? You’re going to want the full shopping list for the Plant Paradox diet found here, or you can just order the more popular items through us via this Lectin-FREE fruit and veggie box.
In 2017, renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry’s The Plant Paradox revealed the hidden toxin lurking in seemingly healthy foods including all nightshade plants, legumes, fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice; and this class of plant-based protein is called lectins.
Lectins are sticky proteins plants contain and use as part of their defense system against being eaten. Believe it or not, plants no not want to be eaten! But because they cannot run, hide or fight like their animal predators, they use chemical warfare to make animals who eat them or their seeds – sick.
Dr. Gundry has been studying the human microbiome for over 15 years, with a focus on the connection between our diet and gut health.
By removing lectins from our diet, our gut is saved from a constant war, allowing the body to naturally heal itself of common illnesses, while creating an environment for easier weight loss, healthier immunity, energy, mental performance and more.
The book became a massive New York Times bestseller, dramatically improved the health of hundreds of thousands, and changed the conversation around gut health, inflammation, weight loss and so much more.
This list outlines all lectin free foods approved by Dr. Gundry (author of the Plant Paradox), as well as the Plant Paradox food pyramid. The good news is that, although you will have to cut some things out in order to keep your diet lectin-free, he does allow plenty of delicious foods.
If you’re looking for a list of what not to eat, jump to lectin-rich foods to avoid.
We are rapidly being poisoned by our food, medicines, and consumer products. People need to make a stand because your doctor and your representatives are ill informed! For more on this, I encourage any one to read about the seven worst offenders in chapter 4 of The Plant Paradox.
