I think that is a gross overstatement. Conventional meat is not poison and will still benefit the body. Making the switch to paleo and whole foods in general is a very big deal. Switching from conventional meat to grass fed organic is a small tweak in comparison, and in my opinion is more of an economic and ethics issue than a dietary problem.

Step one: familiarize yourself with the website

Step two: find the search bar.

Step three: read and discover

We cannot tell you what you want to hear, but the capability for you to find it on your own is definitely here.

recommended search terms:

"paleo tips"

"paleo resources"

and then go from there, basing your searches on things that peak your interest and pertain to your goals.

Meats are definitely more important to buy organic. The main reason being that the offending elements are completely internalized and incorporated into the nutritional profile.

As for veggies, get down with that 'dirty dozen' or 'dirty fifteen' list... otherwise by a citrus-oil-based veggie wash (worth every penny).

Also a thought, I believe that even organic produce is farmed in greatly depleted soil, or primarily supplemented with NPK. A lot of people don't feel that vitamin/mineral supplementation is Paleo, but I personally think it's a good idea in today's world.

Best Tip: take some time to do research (multiple blogs, sites, responses, etc)

Best Trick: use the internet (not Paleo, I know, but we let it slide)

...if you enjoy reading, check out the common Paleo Books (Primal Blueprint, Paleo Solution, Paleo Diet) Once you have a basic hold on everything, this site will be a lot more helpful to come back to with specific questions :)

I don't' think a little cream in your coffee will harm you, but if you can learn to take it black that's even better. No, you don't have to eat 100% organic produce, I don't because I can't afford it either (I just get organic when I can when it's cheap)

don't touch any factory farmed meat. it's gross and won't benefit your body. splurge on grass fed and organic since that is where so much of your calories will be coming from.
