My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)

While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?
