  1. Feel free to add more or different vegetables to this stew including celery or cauliflower. 
  2. Note that if you are following the paleo diet, white potatoes are technically not allowed, so use sweet potatoes instead (white potatoes are allowed on Whole30). 
  3. Instead of green onion feel free to use a medium white or yellow onion.
  4. Note that peas are not allowed on the paleo, GAPS, SCD or Whole30 diets so if you are following them leave the peas out. Feel free to add another vegetable such as chopped celery instead.
