Effects will vary among individuals. If you started eating paleo to cure one or more autoimmune diseases, it could get ugly. If you're luckie, maybe it doesn't matter much. Might as well bring along some activated charcoal just in case.

I very occasionally eat some mung bean fettucini, but the most offensive non-paleo ingredient in the kitchen is Wondra flour. I've tried other thickeners for gravy, but Wondra is what my mom used, it's what I'm used to, and it's convenient.
