Are Carrots and Red Cabbage Allowed on the Paleo and Ketogenic Diets?

The short answer is yes. Both are considered a medium carb. However, be very careful with the amount you consume from such veggies as carrots, red cabbage, onions, and squash. Of course, you can eat these in moderation (not everyday) but you need to be aware of your intake. Don’t over-saturate your diet with carby-veggies.
