Best source for paleo friendly foods?

Answered on August 19, 2014

What has been your favorite places to purchase paleo friendly foods that are both cheap and realiable? These are the products I typically look for online:

Raw or Sprouted Nuts

Gluten Free Organic and/or grass fed Jerky

Coconut Chips/Oils/Flour

Dried Fruits

Almond Meal

Olive Oil and olive oil based dressings

Dark Chocolate

I guess as a second question, is there anything special you guys look for online?

Ooh, I have an awesome Italian Market that I don't go too much anymore now that I'm not eating sandwiches and pasta. I miss it. I'll have to go in and check out the olive oil selection and maybe a Lambrusco! ;P

When I was vegan i was super picky about olive oil, spending way more than I should have on it. I probably coveted it because it became a standout taste in a lot of dishes and because it was close to my only consistent fat source. Now that neither of those things are the case, I am fine with cheaper stuff. Luckily the cheapest I've found that doesn't taste gross to me is at a mom-n-pop Italian market downtown. Our supermarket brand is okay, too.

I used creigslist to find farm eggs and google to look for CSA's, but in general I don't buy off the internet.

Chocolate is the one thing I would absolutely not buy, there are too many shipping issues if it comes to Florida, hard to get it when it hasn't had a fat bloom from uncontrolled temps. Sometimes happens if I buy it in the store too, but then it is easy to return.

Raw Nuts - Trader Joes

Coconut Oils - I actually found one at Super Walmart that I use for cooking. My local health food store has a better one, but much more expensive.

Dried Fruits - I don't eat them, but Trader Joes has a wonderful selection

Almond Flour/Coconut Flour - Meijer has them near me and some of the other grocery stores. They mainly carry the Bob's Red Mill brand.

Olive Oil - Super Walmart (I'm not picky about this one, maybe I should be)

Dark Chocolate - Trader Joes! But my Super Walmart carry's the Black & Green organic high cacao versions too.

I don't buy any Paleo foods online. I am working with a local farmer for the grassfed meat and just need to get my butt down there and pick it up.

Very reasonable prices for grass-fed beef and sometimes pork.

Excellent service.

I get my beef directly from http://www.greenvistafarm.com/ , who is about a hour from me. I buy the bulk pack.

My chicken and pork come from a local butcher who sells local products. Everything else comes from the grocery store.
