What are your paleo staples?

So I moved to the caribbean, as I've previously mentioned. I have tons of access to fresh fish and vegetables galore. I have to lay off the tropical fruit, though. I also eat a lot of coconut.

I'm getting some stuff shipped down, and I think I'm going to ship a 5 gallon pail of coconut oil for the next 2 years I'm here, as well as ship some coconut flour and palm oil. What would you ship as "staple foods" that will not go bad?

ALSO- What type of coconut oil would you order? I need to buy it online and have it shipped to Miami, where tropical shipping will ship it to Saint Kitts. So I am thinking about nutiva... Maybe a gallon or 2 of the unrefined and a gallon or 2 of the refined for topical use? What's your favorite/cheap brand for bulk coconut oil?

Thank you!

I usually buy trader joe's so I don't really know the brands too well. They're both on the expensive side. Trader joes needs bulk online ordering :P

I use trader joe's and honestly I don't know anything about the coconut oils I can buy in bulk. I'm not sure if your comment was joking towards me or ?

... I should add 20 dollars = 20 EC, so it's 8 dollars, which is 1.33 an ounce :/

Hmmm... Saint Kitts is a very small island, so I'll ask around with some of the locals... Thank you! Any advice on paleo caribbean dishes? :)

At home I use trader joe's. However they don't sell a larger size of it, and I need to ship a bunch!

Kara, I suggest you keep looking. I've spent some time in the Caribbean and coconut oil was cheaper than olive oil. It was the primary fat (other than butter) that everyone cooked with. there's got to be more affordable options.

@ Kara- OMG shame on paint for not choosing the most expensive, most faddy brand he can buy right? We all know Tropical Traditions is the only real coconut oil on the market. I mean, all the fat-asses over at WAPF endorse it!

They have it, but it's 20 dollars for 6 ounces, so it's all hand made. It's much more expensive (5x the cost at home) so I cannot afford to use it nearly as much as I'd like!

Nutiva is your go-to coconut oil?

Do they have coconut oil there? I'd bet a local brand would be as good or better than anything you can buy from here...

I personally like tropical traditions' coconut oil. they also sell it in gallon pails.

Olive oil by the gallon, much more important than coconut oil!

things I eat mostly every day:

bananas, coconut oil, zucchini, mushrooms, meat, canned tuna, kefir

I use trader joe's coconut oil. it's dirt cheap and tastes the same as the expensive brands.

bone broth and canned oily fish

when I think of it I'll chew some wild greens and grasses and spit out the fiber

7 months of Paleo after 10 years of low carb I have my core list of staples.

Ground beef green pepper red and yellow pepper cabbage eggs mushrooms tomatoes broth (in the winter when I have more bones) salmon (not a lot due to $$) steak almonds (much more than I should) coconut oil coconut milk (recent addition in iced coffee)

I usually eat 2 x day and have been experimenting with IF recently.

my favorite meal since I'm doing Paleo alone is to make a big mealoaf with whatever veggies I feel like. I mix with tomato sauce and eggs as a binder and top with tomato paste and bake 350 until done 1hr approx. I make a ton so I have meals ready for the week.

My staples are pastured eggs, pastured bacon, grass fed beef, and coconut oil from Nutiva... I also eat butter every but that technically isn't Paleo.
