Paleo friendly living in Southern California?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 01, 2011 at 8:35 PM

Is there anyone living anywhere in Southern California region that is paleo? Meaning are there health groceries with grass-fed, friendly communities, and close access to nature?

Not true Todd, heres some info for you "Born and raised in the vibrant, oak-lined pasture meadows of Palomar mountain, our cattle feed and graze on what cows are supposed to eat – native, sustainable California grasses. After about a year, and once they’ve grown to the proper size and age, at their own pace, our cows are moved to our family-owned finishing ranch, where they continue to feed on even more native, natural, organic grasses."

Of note - the meat there is grass finished, not 100% grass fed. Good shop, though.

Thanks Mark. Its my wife's graphic design business. SD is amazing, I love it here. I have always wanted to experience living outside of the area but kept finding myself asking, why? ..especially this time of year. 3-4 times per week I take a 45 minute to an hour-long walk for my daily Vitamin D around the harbor with views of downtown, the Coronado bridge, Point Loma etc., and then I head back to the office for some wild caught salmon or the local catch of the day. I wont even get into the beach areas...life is good.

I can't wait to get back there. My husband is stationed overseas right now but the plan is to get back to San Diego by next summer. Germany is awesome as well though. It's actually a whole lot better as far as hiking/biking trails. I'm going to miss that.

Yes. San Diego. Easy living here. Farmers markets (about a half dozen of them within 10 minutes of downtown), CSA opportunities, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Henry's etc...

I would say it is probably one of the easiest places to live a paleo lifestyle.

As far as parks go, we have Balboa Park and Morley Field among others (both offer grass areas and paths for trail running), and of course the beach--my favorite playground of all.

Here is a website for a local paleo meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/San-Diego-Paleo-Tribe/

Not true Todd, heres some info for you "Born and raised in the vibrant, oak-lined pasture meadows of Palomar mountain, our cattle feed and graze on what cows are supposed to eat – native, sustainable California grasses. After about a year, and once they’ve grown to the proper size and age, at their own pace, our cows are moved to our family-owned finishing ranch, where they continue to feed on even more native, natural, organic grasses."

There are actually quite a few Paleo-friendly places in Southern California. :) As good grocery stores go, just to name a few there are: Trader Joe's, Henry's (soon to become Sprouts), Sprouts, Barron's, Whole Foods, etc. Additionally, many towns have farmers markets (even some places you wouldn't expect). http://www.eatwild.com/products/california.html can also give you a good idea about local suppliers of grass-fed beef, pastured pork, etc.

As far as access to nature, it varies a bit depending on where exactly you are but you usually aren't more than a short drive away from nature of some form. You want desert? We got it. You want mountains? We got it. Beaches? We definitely got it. ;) I'm in the Temecula area and my personal favorites are the large local mountain ranges (San Gorgonio Wilderness, San Jacinto Wilderness, etc). Pretty damn nice if you can manage to make it through the traffic. :)

In LA, check out the new all grass-fed all-ethically-raised butcher shop, Lindy & Grundy

Los Angeles is full of Paleo eaters. There are some good farmers markets too. Check out the Mar Vista Farmers Market every Sunday. There is a grass fed beef and cage free egg vendor as well as a lot of great produce. Check out any of the Crossfit gyms, they almost are all paleo.

There are a ton of farmers markets and health food stores with paleo friendly items.

I imagine there is probably a pretty big paleo community, there are lots of crossfit gyms around town and probably meetup groups.

As far as nature go's we got the beach and mountains, doesn't get any better than that.
