What do people mean by "raw" milk;Does publix have it? Also, at publix, what kind of cheese would you suggest to be paleo friendly?

Ghee is butter that has been heated in order to remove the remaining proteins and water. Cheese made from raw milk from grass fed cows is undoubtedly better than what can be found in the stores, but I personally don't eat it at all. Pimples tend to show up when I do. Still, the WAPF people and Mark Sisson (the Primal diet) prove a lot of people can eat this and remain pretty healthy.

Ghee is butter that has been heated until the remaining proteins and water are cooked off and can be removed. You may be able to find some cheeses like that. I personally don't eat cheese, but many people do. The WAPF people do, and Mark Sisson thinks some is okay.

Yes, where I live it must be labelled as a pet food. Other states require that you own the cow, and to get around that, people buy a "share" of a farmer's cow.

It's legal and semi-legal (jump through some hoops) in a number of states, too, though.

Raw means not pasteurized. I don't have a publix near me, but it looks like a normal grocery store chain, so I doubt it. You'd have to be in a state where it is legal. Here is the Weston A. Price foundation's real milk finder.

I think you'd be better off avoiding dairy (except butter & ghee), especially within the first thirty days. Then you could add it back in and see if it causes you any problems.

One of my local stores has some unpasteurized, natural cheese. You have to look hard to find things, but I agree that the first 4-6 weeks you should avoid all dairy. Once you are in a healthy state, add some things and see how you feel.

"Raw" milk is milk just as it comes from the cow.

Specifically, it's milk that has NOT been either homogenized or pasteurized.

In the US it's generally illegal to sell raw milk. Police have raided coops where members were getting raw milk from a farm.
