What are the top 5 things on your food shopping list?

Or put another way. Which 5 things would you not want to run out of?

sure come over to www.jackkruse.com and read the blog on how I do it. I test often and I constantly retool based upon what I found over 5 yrs. Now for the last 2 years I am in a groove that I have not had to change too often. I lay out how I eat now in the leptin post Rx blog. I began with the Leptin Rx method first for about 6 months. I used supplement back them and then got rid of most when my testing revealed I did not need them.

I buy the ghirardelli 100% cocao baking bars in bulk from amazon. Slightly cheaper than buying them in the store. So delicious (and you don't even miss the sugar), and the perfect way to end a meal.

Eggs come from friends or locar farm I know has them on pasture, bacon from another farm where I can also get cream and some veggies. Kerrygold butter is only sold at our local mega super market and dubliner is only at costco. Coconut stuff I get online. One farm for chicken and another for grass fed beef. And dont forget trader joes for condiments and nuts, and another pickup areaa for fish csa. I am lucky to live near a lot of agriculture, but no place has everything I need at the best price. It also changes throughout the season.

Seaweed is pretty abundant here and easily accessible. Nori I use as a bread substitute at times or as a snack alternative to potato chips, but I eat laver/brown seaweed and other types often too. It's an easy snack to pick up and have between classes instead of the cakes that sit on the kitchen counter at work.

The AI has been going well. I've been strict for a little over a month. I did notice my skin has cleared up some. I'm mainly trying to heal some gut issues that I believe are causing my chronic fatigue syndrome. I make a lot of homemade bone broth! I do miss nightshades! It's hard to find recipes without tomatoes and peppers (especially this time of year) What do you eat most of the time? Also, do you eat any raw sauerkraut? I took it out these past few days because I heard we're not supposed to eat anything fermented! However, I've heard there are so many benefits to eating it.

I bought nori too, thinking that it will provide a good source of iodine. Turns out it doesn't have much iodine (but still a good source of phytochemical and convenient way to wrap up foods in, no doubt). Kelp and dulse are much more rich in iodine, so I started using kelp granules instead.

Yes, they are so good! Oxtail is even better in some ways but cheeks have more meat for the same price. But its so satisfying to eat oxtail on the bone. I braise them in red wine and thick beef stock. It is amazing how flavorful the brasing liquid is.

hows the AI going? I been doing that strict for two months now and my skin has cleared up.

I havent touched them and am feeling and looking much better.

You did mean "creamed" coconut (aka coconut butter right?) If you meant the canned coconut cream it's basically an sub for cream in your coffee, for making coconut ice cream, and for cooking in curries, etc. Creamed coconut is the stuff I really love for all sorts of unique dishes.

I go through anxiety attacks if I run out of eggs, Paleo or not. No matter how broke I am, if I have enough eggs in my fridge, it'll allllllll be okay. (especially when there's nothing else in the fringe. Next I guess is butter to cook those eggs in. Drinking water. Our tap water here has the crap that was in the Erin Brokovich movie. Whole milk. My toddler doesn't eat much, and I rely on this to keep her protein, fat, and calories up. I try to keep it organic when I can afford $6/gallon. Tillamook med cheddar cheese. My husband NEEDs it on his eggs. This is more here to prevent whining. My kid likes snacking on it, too. It's one of the only cheddars I can stand the flavor of.

Since I source pretty much all my food differently, this would be a two-part question:

Shopping List:

  • Omega-3 eggs (if I'm out of pastured)
  • Organic Veggies (whatever is in season)
  • Canned goods (tomato paste, organic broth)
  • Kerrygold (I can make due w/out butter and use tallow/coconut oil, but my wife cannot)
  • Coffee

But these things I would not want to run out of:

I'll answer in categories because I always make sure I have some, if not all, of the foods in each of these categories:

  1. Coconut products (milk, oil, flakes, fresh, etc....)
  2. Greens (esp. kale, spinach, chard, cabbage...also often collards, parsley, cilantro, bok choi, and whatever else looks fresh and catches my fancy!)
  3. Meat (grass-fed beef, fish, seafood, bacon)
  4. Crunchy veggies (carrots, celery, jicama...)
  5. Fruit (esp. grapefruit and apples)

I do like to try to get all the variety in my diet that I can, but these are the staples!

  1. Beef. Local, grassfed, humane, not frozen, from a local butcher who specializes in such meats. http://www.thepiggery.net
  2. Butter. Also local and grassfed. I get this at Wegmans.
  3. Cream. For my coffee, sometimes for sauces. This comes from the co-op
  4. Greens. Various leafy things. For both myself and my tortoise to eat.
  5. Coffee. Organic, fair trade, roasted locally. I have two place in town (Ithaca, NY) that make this. One sells at Wegmans, the other in a coffeeshop I drive by on my way to/from work.

I think I live in a great place to eat Paleo. I might have to go to three stores each week, but they are all very convenient. In the summer there is a fabulous farmers market full of seasonal veggies, fruits and lots of different frozen meats

As I look at my list I see that eggs are missing. Maybe they should have been #5, but I have coffee daily, not eggs. When I need them I can pick them up at The Piggery, the co-op, or from a co-worker who has a flock of organic/lawn fed chickens.

eggs, butter, thick-cut bacon, green veggies, and tie between dubliner cheddar and berries (mostly for my kids who are half fruit-bat).

believe it or not, all of my top five things need to be bought at five different stores. FML. i dont list coconut milk, beef, lamb, pork, coconut oil because i buy them in bulk once a year or so and keep them in the basement, but we do go through quite a bit of those things. i guess i also go through a fair amount of heavy cream since i make it into yogurt. thats at store #6. ugh.

Eggs come from friends or locar farm I know has them on pasture, bacon from another farm where I can also get cream and some veggies. Kerrygold butter is only sold at our local mega super market and dubliner is only at costco. Coconut stuff I get online. One farm for chicken and another for grass fed beef. And dont forget trader joes for condiments and nuts, and another pickup areaa for fish csa. I am lucky to live near a lot of agriculture, but no place has everything I need at the best price. It also changes throughout the season.

The AI has been going well. I've been strict for a little over a month. I did notice my skin has cleared up some. I'm mainly trying to heal some gut issues that I believe are causing my chronic fatigue syndrome. I make a lot of homemade bone broth! I do miss nightshades! It's hard to find recipes without tomatoes and peppers (especially this time of year) What do you eat most of the time? Also, do you eat any raw sauerkraut? I took it out these past few days because I heard we're not supposed to eat anything fermented! However, I've heard there are so many benefits to eating it.

hows the AI going? I been doing that strict for two months now and my skin has cleared up. In the past i thought dairy was the trigger, higher omega six things like chicken and pork was the trigger, etc - but what the AI has shown me is that apparently the nightshades are what give me zits. I havent touched them and am feeling and looking much better.

You did mean "creamed" coconut (aka coconut butter right?) If you meant the canned coconut cream it's basically an sub for cream in your coffee, for making coconut ice cream, and for cooking in curries, etc. Creamed coconut is the stuff I really love for all sorts of unique dishes.

I buy the ghirardelli 100% cocao baking bars in bulk from amazon. Slightly cheaper than buying them in the store. So delicious (and you don't even miss the sugar), and the perfect way to end a meal.

I agree...I bought myself a bag of dulse at Commodities Market for some added iodine. Can't seem to get through it though...

Seaweed is pretty abundant here and easily accessible. Nori I use as a bread substitute at times or as a snack alternative to potato chips, but I eat laver/brown seaweed and other types often too. It's an easy snack to pick up and have between classes instead of the cakes that sit on the kitchen counter at work.

I bought nori too, thinking that it will provide a good source of iodine. Turns out it doesn't have much iodine (but still a good source of phytochemical and convenient way to wrap up foods in, no doubt). Kelp and dulse are much more rich in iodine, so I started using kelp granules instead.

Definitely. You should check out Shima on 2nd Ave. and 12th St. They're great, me and Gypsyloo are power-regulars there.
