Thank God my husband finally found a job after the company he was working for went bankrupt earlier hid year. Only catch (or perhaps positive) is that we are all moving to Warsaw, Poland. Anyone know what I should order that's paleo-friendly while we're living out of suitcases in a hotel? Things you can get in eastern europe (i know i can get water packed sardines and such in the usa) Any insight on how livestock is raised for when I get my own kitchen? I'm assuming most sausages are stuffed with flour and junk... Does anyone know any non-grainified varieties? Can you get affordable seafood? Is produce seasonal or is it year round like the USA? So many questions!!!

Roll-mops. Pickled herring wrapped around dill pickles. Poland packs a lot of sardines too, and is the country of origin for my King Oscars.
Central European countries eat carp. in Slovakia it's called kapor, and the Polish word is probably similar.

Disclaimer: I've not not visited Poland in about 5 years so thing may be different.
First thing to remember is that Poland is part of EU so although food still has a lot of junk in it, it's nowhere near what we have here in the US. There will be a lot of walking and most likely you will be using public transportation. So no more daily walks around the neighborhood needed :) If you're willing to go outside of the city (highly recommended) you can find anything, including raw milk. Also, you have to try McDonald's while you're there. It's totally different then what we have here:) And if you have to eat in restaurants, they have decent variety of foods, from chinese to american, so you should not have any troubles finding something "paleo".
Produce should mostly be seasonal, but with the global economy, I'm sure you will be able to buy some chinese broccoli during the winter.
I belive that the Livestock is usually grain fed, but it's mostly keep outside, grazing on grass, so it's a decent combination.
And keep your husband close. There is a lot of beautiful women there. :)

Just a query but do you have anyone organizing the relocation - visas, work permits, house hunting etc ?
