  • Meat: beef, pork, lamb, venison
  • Poultry: chicken, turkey, game birds
  • Fish and shellfish: all are okay
  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds: all are okay
  • Dairy products: milk, plain (unsweetened) or Greek-style yogurt, cottage cheese, hard and soft cheeses

  • Beans and legumes: most beans (black, pinto, kidney, navy, etc.), lentils, split peas, tofu, soymilk
