Grocery Shopping Questions
So I joined a crossfit gym and I love it. It is my new obsession and I try to make it five days a week. I have been going for a month now and although I am seeing results I know that it would be so much healthier for me to change my diet and go... (more)
Hi Vancouverites or anyone else that has information:) Does anyone know of any good places to buy grass-fed meats, pasture-raised chicken/pork, wild fish and other fresh local foods in Vancouver? I am also looking to buy in bulk so it will last... (more)
I want to add coconut milk to my coffee, and just to use in general. But every store I've checked only had coconut milk with fillers, sugar and other not good for you/ no paleo things. So I'm wondering where I could find some coconut milk that is... (more)
Everyone keeps talking about "grass-fed beef" and other luxuries of the middle-class & super-wealthy, but I simply cannot afford it. And when I say I can't afford it, I don't mean "it would interfere with my wine of the month subscription", I... (more)
Some people take "Paleo" way too far. No electricity? No internet? Give me a break. Buy big, fatty, tough cuts of meat: pork shoulder, beef chuck, shanks, whatever. And buy a crockpot. It will change your life. Buy frozen vegetables/fruit. Forget... (more)
Feeling like our grocery budget is out of control, and am curious how much others with larger families are spending. We basically are feeding 6 adults- 2 adults, 2 teens, and two pre teens. After reading some of the older posts about eating paleo... (more)
I called A & P (local mega store) national customer service line to ask if they could suggest a brand of beef, butter in their store that is grass fed / finished. I called twice. Both times I was put on hold for 5 minutes and then the line... (more)
What are the fattest cuts/limbs of freshly dead land animals (so excluding bacon, brisket, etc.) at a local grocery store? I know I can look up what cuts of a cattle contain the most fat, but then again I know that typical, large chain grocery... (more)
Being a college student, my budget is fairly limited so I do most of my shopping at Trader Joe's. I am only recently paleo and was wondering if any other frequent shoppers of TJ's could give me some handy advice on paleo foods to buy there. Grok on! (more)
Sweet potatoes, potatoes, white rice, cheap meats... Ask yourself: Is it paleo (or acceptable to me)? Is it calorie or nutrient dense for the price? Can I afford it? Ask those 3 questions and you should come out with some good results. Don't... (more)
I just reviewed my food expenses and I'm averaging about 900 a month on food, which includes 500 at Whole Foods and other grocery stores and about 400 eating out (which obviously could be much lower, and isn't necessary). What are your grocery... (more)
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)
Hey guys I know a few cities offer this, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Paleo meetup in Toronto? I figure we could all meet up somewhere and talk about the paleo lifestyle, recipes, share ideas on the being paleo in a city with... (more)
I am going to be working abroad in Copenhagen from May to September. I'm having some anxiety because I really don't know what to expect from a food standpoint. I will have a kitchen, which will be extremely helpful, but I am wondering if anyone... (more)
There is Wanigan (http://www.wanigan.com/) which is a organic fruit and vegetable delivery service, but they do have a store. Haven't been yet, but it's on my todo list. Haven't found much else, but am still looking.
Hi. I've been researching about joining a CSA but it seems very involved. You have to go to a drop location once a week (or every other week) and they don't deliver home. I'm busy and too used to get food delivered home by Safeway. Is it... (more)
Yep, I've used https://www.planetorganics.com for years. All organic, and mostly local. More than just produce too, I get my fish/seafood from them and a handful of other things regularly. They have a key to our building so they leave the delivery... (more)
I'm trying to change the way I shop in order to change the way I eat (Safeway is 5 minutes away, so I'm currently an impulse buyer). What do you buy when you go in the market... looking for ideas.
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.
This thread is for anything Paleo/Primal/Ancestral related that you know of in Belgium. Supermarkets, farms, doctors, gyms, anything goes. Please create one answer per item group that you know of. (Since Belgium is the only region I care about,... (more)
I'm considering buying a membership to Costco or Sam's and need some advice. It's just 2 of us, we eat meat and seafood and my boyfriend eats some cheese. I buy organic fruit and veggies when they are on the "dirty dozen." I use frozen veggies... (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 recently moved to the USA and find it really difficult to stick to a paleo diet because all raw meat and produce is extremely expensive. I thought that food in the USA would be extremely cheap though I'm finding the prices impossible to afford... (more)
I'm going to be moving to Germany for a year this fall, and I want to get there already knowing what to eat. I'll be in Potsdam, so local advice would be nice. I'm also on a rather small stipend, so I'm going to have to eat on the cheap. I've... (more)
I saw this thread on Costco finds. Right now we're weighing whether or not to switch from Sam's Club to Costco when our Sam's membership runs out this summer, and at the core of this decision is the quality and prices of paleo-friendly items... (more)
Picked up my pastured chicken this morning from a local farm near Columbus, Ohio. Big sale. 75% off parts for loyal customers! (They needed to clear out their freezer it seems.) Their normal prices don't seem terrible to me, but I haven't done a... (more)
Community co-op-type grocery store for grassfed meats, liver, bones for stew Trader Joe's for cheap wine, parmesan Reggiano, ground beef, Kerrygold butter, frozen wild-caught salmon, cod, halibut, and sole Costco for lamb and cheap cuts of meat... (more)
You're not at all unusual - in fact I find it perfectly consistent. The same mindset of resourcefulness and making the most of what you have (= healthy Paleo eating) has also ultimately led you to source well in your grocery shopping. Here's my... (more)
I have noticed I've taken up a hobby while standing in line at the grocery store. I look at my groceries and evaluate them for paleo correctness, sometimes casting a critical eye on my penchant for ranch dressing but usually otherwise feeling... (more)
What would a paleo substitute to this video look like?
