I just moved last week and when I clean out the SAD food that I bought that was all I could afford, I'm going to convert my kitchen to paleo again. So, give me a paleo shopping list of things to stock up on.

The Whole9 shopping list is a pretty good guideline: http://whole9life.com/book/ISWF-Shopping-List.pdf

I'm never without:

Eggs - I eat 5 yolks a day, so this is my biggest consumable.

Butter - Best quality you can find.

Heavy Cream - Like butter, the best quality you can find.

Kerry Gold Cheese - This is new to me, I stopped eating cheese a while ago, but the recommended serving size grated onto my sausage and eggs...my god.

Sour Cream - Find the best quality you can.

Ground Beef - I spice my ground beef (smoked paprika, garlic, onion, cumin, smoked chipotle) and always have it on hand as I kind of base or starter meal, and it by itself can become the meal, or mixed with sour cream and cheese, thrown into white rice.

Sausages ??? Find the best quality you can.

Bacon - it's the only way to meet a nice girl.

Other than that as far as food goes, spend the time to find your best quality spices...hug them, talk to them...Say nurturing things to them and never take them for granted.

Spices vinegar oils: coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, olive oil, avacoda, etc Teas Organic Condiments: ketchup, mustard, fish sauce, Worcestershire, other usual stuff you use in cooking

meats of course.

fresh veggies and fruits.

to cook up a fresh and moderately quick meal,

have eggs on hand with some onion, mushrooms and bell pepper OR

marinate chicken thighs in lime juice, and a bit of taco seasoning (or put whatever you like) then top with oil or butter (or both) and bake for an hour or so.. till it's cooked. Roast some broccoli or broccolini (tossed in a pinch of oregano and salt) for maybe 45 mins in the oven. 350 degrees Fahrenheit for all.

get a crockpot, throw a poound of slicd grass fed chuck roast and prepare this recipe:


really tender and delicious........

Get a freezer. The cheapest grass fed parts are offal, bones, and suet, so you are in luck. Besides the fats Kevin lists, there is olive oil.

Come Fall, you should consider stocking up on squash and pumpkin (and onions and garlic), it will keep unrefrigerated through the winter. I also stock all types of roots in the garage, in totes full of moist sand. Eat the turnips first, the beets second, carrots (and cabbage) last. Apples, too, last months in the garage, the best varieties being still quality in June.

I usually always have canned tuna, coconut oil, meats in the freezer, kefir going on the countertop, spices/salts, olive oil, and any fruits/veggies that i'm in the mood for.

The only things I really stock up on are grass fed butter (4 bars of Kerry Gold in the freezer), frozen grass fed beef (ground and steaks) and coconut oil.
