If you could pack a store with paleo/primal friendly foods/snacks/drinks/products what would they be ?

At $20 per pund, I'll pass. Lobster is cheaper (way cheaper these days).

No kidding, probably a "safety" issue what that now.

Meat hanging on hooks... I remember that from my childhood. It seems like more supermarkets used to show off their meat supply back then.

Oh yeah, forgot that, cosmetics, deoderant, soap, toothpaste, hair products that dont harm your oils. Books is a good idea too, cooking books, health books, survival and herbalism books perhaps.

Good answer. I sorta answered some similar ideas so I owe you and up vote. And didnt think of the sauces, another good idea. Tomato sauce without nonsense would be awesome.

Ooh, good one. Also, not going to lie, I would probably dedicate an entire section of the store to paleo approved booze, and another entirety of the store to coconut. Coconut ANYTHING.

You can make your own, I got an ice cream maker for 30 bucks on Amazon and never looked back. Otherwise there's a few at Whole Foods that use maltitol and there's one that is just Raw Coconut cream and coconut nectar, which doesn't spike my blood sugar. Oh god, seconded on the chips without canola oil. Coconut oil all the way.

Here is what heaven looks like:

  1. There would be a Bulletproof coffee bar serving in bacon mugs.

  2. Every customer would get a free hard boiled egg with purchase and complimentary bacon.

  3. A walk in freezer with grassfed meat hanging on the hooks.

  4. Several suspension trainers in the freezer in case you felt the need to workout.

  5. All items must be power cleaned onto the counter for checkout.

  6. Chocolate candy shaped into kettlebells, must complete circuit of swings, snatches, and turkish getups before consuming.

To be honest, I would just take Whole Foods, make everything cheaper, and get rid of all the GMO, soy, farm-raised, grain-fed, sugar, and generally SAD-y stuff.

I'd make all the meat/seafood wild caught, 100% grass fed, pastured, humane etc, preferably from local sources, always available in bulk and always on the cheap. I'd also make the dairy section raw and full-fat, with raw and additive-free alternatives for the lactose folk.

I'd make the salad bar, deli, bakery, and coffee bar paleo.

I'd probably also have a resources and cosmetics section, like books and perfumes and makeups what have you.

TL;DR a better, cheaper, paleo-friendly Whole Foods.

Otherwise paleo/primal friendly chips NOT cooked in canola oil. Is there such a thing as ice cream (lactose-free, of course) made with no sweetener? Ketchup and steak sauce without icky things in them. Give me more time and I could think up lots of other items!

Electronic candles, sun alarms, light therapy lights, low blue lights, barefoot shoes, pedometers, stop watches, free weights, futons, practical clothing (loose fitting pants etc)

Outdoor portable smokeless fires.

Paleo decor (have I gone too far, lol!) fur rugs and blankets - tvs, mp3s, phones and computers finished with natural materials like polished wood or lighter stone...:P

All devices with screens, like tvs or mp3s loaded with F.lux capability.

Lotsa, plants and herbs including medicinal herbs

Proper paleo jerky, pecimman, a huge selection of raw nuts (and cheap macadamias), bottle drinks without lotsa sugar or crap (like cranberry, non-sparkling high mineral content mineral water, water with lemon and lime and lotsa fruit infusion, coconut water that actually tastes like coconut water).

Lotsa varieties of frozen fruit of season, potato and sweet potato chips without chemicals or canola oil, grabable bars made of all paleo ingredients like coconut, nuts and berries, dark chocolate without crazy additives,

and FULL FAT products, full fat ham, full fat yogurt, full fat raw milk and cream, free range chicken breasts with the skin on. Processed meats without crazy nonsense in them.

"Paleo"-ish icecreams, lotsa different angles on ingredients.

Savoury baked goods made with paleo or safe starch wheat alternatives and no crazy additives.

What a fun game!

Everything simple.

I go to my local store for a bite to eat and spend about 20minutes trying to decide what I (can and) want to eat.

I paleo shop full of grabbable easy food would be amazing!

Almond Vanilla Power Crunchies made by gopalshealthfoods.com They are a raw, organic, sprouted superfood, of course gluten and grain free. I really love them!

I found these in Erewhon's in Los Angeles while on vacation, and would love to find these anywhere here in NYC.

They are simply heavenly!
