I've just started the paleodiet a few weeks ago. How do you shop in order to not get bored from the same food items? I've already run into a rut with the same regiment of 5-6 meals/snacks a day. Any suggestions?

Yes they are. Where it becomes un-paleo is when you eat only salad, then you're in vegetarian land. I never eat sprouts like alfalfa sprouts though and they tend to be higher in lectins and phytates because they just came out of their legume state. (more)
