I'm going insane here. Best resources for diet?

I've been bouncing back and forth between vegan/vegetarian blogs (nutritionfacts.org, McDougall diet), bodybuilding blogs (carb backloading), this site (PaleoHacks), Mark's Daily Apple...

This community seems to be the most well-rounded... you guys seem passionate about the paleo diet, but you don't shun people who deviate from paleo a little.

I'm in Canada, and where I live is extremely difficult to get high quality / grass-fed / organic animal products, so I don't want to be loading up on meats that could compromise my health, not only through antibiotics/hormones but the seemingly high risks from high animal fat diets (inflammation, cancer risk, etc.)

My question is, what resources do you guys recommend for people who that want to de-emphasize meat and emphasize more plant based?

I buy a lot of wild salmon (the frozen fillets, but boy are they convenient!)

I eat a lot of egg whites, too. I'll probably add a yolk here and there every couple days.

Thanks for the recipes site, I never realized that sweet potatoes are paleo (but it makes sense since our ancestors depended on root veggies). It all looks great!

i would 100 % recommend the perfect health diet. that would be really great for you if you don't have access to high quality meat. paul jaminet (the author) recommends 8-16 oz of meat a day or 300 protein calories and 600 calories of carbs. the rest should come from fat. can you get wild fish and organic eggs? he also says 1 lb of starches and 1 lb of fruits/veggies per day, i believe, but don't quote me on this!! i have the book in my room- just started reading it.

also, i don't have a lot of grocery stores near me that sell grass fed so i have had to order online quite a bit. i don't know about canada- i am in the US and order from US Wellness Meats.

You don't need to read more. Just simply eat more plants. If you are consuming 3oz of animal product a day you are good. If you exercise a lot add in some protein or another 3-6 oz of animal product.

If you're in Canada, you should have access to *wild* salmon. Emphasize on lots of veggies, some fruit, salmon/salmon-eggs and other small-ish fatty fish, shellfish, sea veggies, and whatever meat/offal and eggs you can find. Here are recipes: http://stalkerville.net/ It doesn't all have to be grass-fed/organic.
