What are your favorite online resources to support your lifestyle?

In a perfect world, we'd all be able to get what we need from local, sustainable sources. I don't know about you, but I don't live in that world, so rely on the WWW to support the way I've been eating.

I have a couple of regular go-to's that I particularly like, including:

How about you? Are there online resources that you like and would recommend?

The latest round? It starts here: http://www.livingitupcornfree.com/2010/01/gmos-in-pasture-raised-meat.html You will have to go back and forth on two sites to get the full context. You will see when you get there. :-) They all don't do it. Best to find a local supplier that doesn't use a USDA processor.

Went to a plant in Tecoman, Colima Mex. to buy my coconut oil since we were so close- Green Cuts. It made an interesting side trip.

Actually, most meat suppliers do that, even the local ones.

I love iherb, including their ultra-low overseas shipping costs.

I don't have a list at this point, but for grass fed beef I will contact a local farm rather than go online and order. I am lucky enough to live in a fairly rural area and it is a short drive to ranchland when I am at home in Canada.

We get our wild salmon, halibut, crabs and prawns from a friend with a fish boat. We grow a lot of the veggies we eat.

In the past when I have done online ordering I was more into low-carb foods, most of which I won't buy again.

I have always done so, but will be reading labels a lot closer in the future.

The closer to the source of my food that I get, the happier I am.

In the Northeast US, The 8 O'clock Ranch CSA is at once an online resource and a local, sustainable option for pastured beef, lamb, pork, etc. at awesome prices.

I get most of my meat and veg locally. I've used Total Discount Vitamins for supplements several times -- they carry the excellent Thorne brand products at good prices. Beyond that... Amazon, I guess.

Eat Wild is a great directory of local farms you can get pastured/grass fed meat, dairy and veggies (some farms have websites and shipping others you've got to visit in person however)

BodyBuilding.com store tends to have some of the best prices I've seen on supplements (beats out Vitamin shoppe on most stuff I get, also has lots of reviews on products usually)

With the recent hullaboo over a well known online grass fed meat supplier using a spray derived from GMO corn on its meat, it has driven home once again the need for me to have a local supplier of nearly everything I buy. Sometimes it makes better economic sense to buy otherwise, but only when I know with certainty how the product has been handled from a to z.

The online version of Vitamin Shoppe, http://www.vitaminshoppe.com , has much better prices and selection than their brick-and-mortar stores. They carry most major brands in addition to their house brand. I get vitamins, minerals, fish oil, whey powder, and coconut oil there. Free shipping on US orders over $100.
