Most Paleo Countries to Learn from?

Commented on November 05, 2013
Created November 04, 2013 at 2:17 PM

I'm planning on studying abroad and have been following paleo for quite some time. I don't want the idea of paleo to dictate where I study, but I would like to know if there are certain countries that more or less follow the paleo protocol, or at least countries that are more all about whole foods and traditional foods, etc.

I know this might not seem totally paleo, but I thought it might make an interesting topic. Correct me if I'm wrong and just shut this topic down.

The prosciutto pigs are, yes, well fed, and for the best prosciutto they are kept outside (many in the land between levees of the Po river, which is traditionally cultivated with poplar plantations). But they do not eat parmesan, they eat (drink) the leftover whey.

apart from the gluten and a couple other things french food is very paleo for the most part. Italy is similar as well, so many of their foods are made in the traditional way. Parmigiano Reggiano comes from grassfed cows, that are well cared for. Parma ham (prosciutto di parma) comes from pastured pigs that actually get fed reggiano at times. Both reggiano and parma ham use sea salt not table salt.

Large areas of the South of France for liver and butter, the island of Sardinia and areas of the Caucasus for sheep meat and dairy, Okinawa for a vegetable heavy version, all of South America for grass fed beef, a band going from Germany to Russia for emphasis on root crops vs grains, lots of traditional societies in pockets scattered from the Caucasus to Tibet and down in the high valleys of Pakistan. For entomophagy, Mexico City is the world capital, with about ten types of bugs available in restaurants.

I live in Europe, in Belgium & it's very easy to follow a paleo diet here if you want to. We're next to France and lots of people here cook at home and love good foods ! Of course junk food is available in every supermarket but there are lots of farmer's market & organic shops too. And real food is everywhere!! Paleo is not well-known (yet). You look a bit weird when you say you avoid grains but most of the time people are just curious and respect your choices.

Any non industrialized country offers a better opportunity to avoid processed foods. Poor countries might force you into it. But then again, you can live in many parts of the US and fit right in with Paleo. No lack of resources in Portland area for it.
