Hi, I am on my second week of strict aip paleo to combat my stage 3 Hidradenitis Suppurativa. My first week consisted mainly of beef because I know what to look for in beef, i.e. 100% grass fed to avoid consuming the grains the cow... (more)
What does it matter if the animal eats grain? Those grains are completely broken down into the constituent sugar, fat and protein molecules that they are composed of in the digestive system of the animal that ate it and turned into meat (muscle... (more)
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?
Im 18, still living with parents and of course they're not paleo but we do tend to get fruit veg nd a little meat in.....so Im about to go shopping and get some snacks and other essentials, what should I buy? :)
HELP. I am brand new. Overwhelmed. Trying to just start small with a 2 week menu plan, mainly dinners, and a shopping list. Budget is tight so ingredients that can make more than one meal are great. I've been trying to do this but I'm just... (more)
Hi all, I'm new to the Paleo scene, and I totally get it. My trouble is shopping. I feel overwhelmed going into Whole Foods. There just seem to be so many options, and I feel like I spent half my day there and only bought about 7 things! ... (more)
Where can I buy pastured eggs? I have access to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and ideally I'd like to buy them from there; they do have omega-3 enriched eggs, but it's not clear they're pastured -- they claim "vegetarian diet" which I'm concerned... (more)
Chickens are meant to digest corn, so it's totally fine for them to eat it. But you do want them also to have grass and bugs, so you are looking for eggs marked "pastured". Where are you located?
Hi all, I'm looking to stock up the cupboards with coconut oil, flour, almond and coconut flour, nuts etc. I wondered if any of you could recommend a wholesaler / online store that is really good value for money. For example Holland &... (more)
I have moved to Paris for a while and I'm just getting started at settling in. I have two questions: are there places that I could by pastured beef, eggs, and milk? And then...what are the French terms that are used to describe something as... (more)
Hey Everyone. I am considering the Paleo Diet. I have read a couple books and been lurking here for about a week. Can someone help me with a shopping list? Looking for something just to get started. Once I can come up with that I am sure I... (more)
A local VONS in San Diego, California has a brand called Open Nature. On all of their packages, it says vegetarian fed. I did some research and found this site. Under the Angus Beef category, it says it is raised on vegetables - including... (more)
Possible Duplicate: How many like to evaluate other people’s grocery carts? First and foremost, I DO. I do judge them. At least I am being honest. When I see a 400 pounder walking around Walmart with industrial size boxes of... (more)
Recently I seem to have developed a habit of looking at other peoples' shopping baskets at the checkout. This morning the guy next to me had a bunch of bananas, sliced ham, spinach, a packet of mixed nuts and box of blueberries. I was tempted to... (more)
I do, of course, it's like fun spying. Sometimes I go "OO where did you get that?!?" because they have something special in their cart that I might be interested in, most of the time I just feel sad because it's full of junk. So much packaged... (more)
I live in Portugal and although access to quality foods is fairly easy (iberian pork, fresh seafood, grass fed - although grain finished - beef, etc.), I do struggle to find some items. Coconut products are almost nowhere to be seen (I pay way... (more)
I am kind of obsessed with liverwurst, but only have immediate access to the supermarket brand. Is there a brand of pastured liverwurst that I can order online that you would recommend? P.S.: Braunschweiger is great, too! (more)
I've been toying with the idea of getting a meat grinder and grinding my own. I'm not totally sure I need to because we get all of our beef from a local grass fed beef farm, but they do outsource the processing. Are there any benefits heath or... (more)
I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything that goes into the shopping and storage of a week's worth of protein. I find it most convenient to go grocery shopping once a week and buy all my poultry/beef/fish for the week in one go. But then I have no... (more)
Hi all, I was wondering where people have been getting grass-fed offal, and whether this is as important as getting typical grass fed meat cuts. For example, I live on the west coast where 99 Ranch sells lots of cheap obscure meat parts which I'm... (more)
Not 99 Ranch but I've never felt so miserable eating meat as when I eat meat from the Korean market in K-Town. I've never bought the fish but the pork and beef they sell makes me feel horrible. I guess I get what I pay for.
I'm thinking mother's day for paleo!mom, but also in general. She has all the normal books like The Primal Blueprint, The Paleo Diet, Protein Power, ad nauseum, so she doesn't need more stuff telling her what the paleo diet is. She also doesn't... (more)
Hi, I live in India and don't have the will to bake my own bread. Does anyone know where I can buy Paleo breads in India ? Julian bakery does not ship to India. Thank you, Vishal (more)

I already know it's true that I have the best, smartest and most beautiful friends in the world, so no hate! My family and I are going through a hard time, and have been getting our food from a food pantry (luckily a paleo friend of mine is the... (more)
Wow I think it's awesome how international and far reaching Paleo is. I'm curious what other countries think about American food/farming practices. For me I found out about Paleo through food politics.
Can anyone recommend countries that are inherently Paleo-friendly? I'm in Colombia right now working for a month. I was a little nervous about sticking to my diet while traveling but it has been pretty amazing: all of their beef is 100% free... (more)
