Hi, I am on my second week of strict aip paleo to combat my stage 3 Hidradenitis Suppurativa. My first week consisted mainly of beef because I know what to look for in beef, i.e. 100% grass fed to avoid consuming the grains the cow... (more)
What does it matter if the animal eats grain? Those grains are completely broken down into the constituent sugar, fat and protein molecules that they are composed of in the digestive system of the animal that ate it and turned into meat (muscle... (more)
I've just started the paleodiet a few weeks ago. How do you shop in order to not get bored from the same food items? I've already run into a rut with the same regiment of 5-6 meals/snacks a day. Any suggestions?
Where can I buy pastured eggs? I have access to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and ideally I'd like to buy them from there; they do have omega-3 enriched eggs, but it's not clear they're pastured -- they claim "vegetarian diet" which I'm concerned... (more)
Chickens are meant to digest corn, so it's totally fine for them to eat it. But you do want them also to have grass and bugs, so you are looking for eggs marked "pastured". Where are you located?
Hi all, I'm looking to stock up the cupboards with coconut oil, flour, almond and coconut flour, nuts etc. I wondered if any of you could recommend a wholesaler / online store that is really good value for money. For example Holland &... (more)
Possible Duplicate: Seattle PaleoHackers, where do you shop for grass-fed beef, pastured eggs, raw dairy? Any Paleo people from the Seattle area here?'where do you all shop from meats and produce? And any other good paleo products? (more)
I have moved to Paris for a while and I'm just getting started at settling in. I have two questions: are there places that I could by pastured beef, eggs, and milk? And then...what are the French terms that are used to describe something as... (more)
Wow I think it's awesome how international and far reaching Paleo is. I'm curious what other countries think about American food/farming practices. For me I found out about Paleo through food politics.
I pick up a produce CSA once a week, a meat CSA once a month and go to the farmer's market every week. I find myself at Trader Joe's at least twice a week and at Whole Foods a few times a month. A run of the mill standard grocery store is within... (more)
I live in Portugal and although access to quality foods is fairly easy (iberian pork, fresh seafood, grass fed - although grain finished - beef, etc.), I do struggle to find some items. Coconut products are almost nowhere to be seen (I pay way... (more)
I am kind of obsessed with liverwurst, but only have immediate access to the supermarket brand. Is there a brand of pastured liverwurst that I can order online that you would recommend? P.S.: Braunschweiger is great, too! (more)
I placed my first order at US Wellness Meats yesterday. I wanted to try the liverwurst I've seen mentioned here a few times. My wife hates liver but she's cool with deli/supermarket liverwurst. Of course, that's usually pork liver plus bacon so... (more)
Can anyone recommend countries that are inherently Paleo-friendly? I'm in Colombia right now working for a month. I was a little nervous about sticking to my diet while traveling but it has been pretty amazing: all of their beef is 100% free... (more)
I was browsing Etsy for fun just a few minutes ago, and came across The Paleo Cook's offerings. This brings me to my question: Do you have any paleo/primal-friendly Etsy items or sellers to recommend? Bonus points if your recommendations spring... (more)
I've been toying with the idea of getting a meat grinder and grinding my own. I'm not totally sure I need to because we get all of our beef from a local grass fed beef farm, but they do outsource the processing. Are there any benefits heath or... (more)
Picked up my pastured chicken this morning from a local farm near Columbus, Ohio. Big sale. 75% off parts for loyal customers! (They needed to clear out their freezer it seems.) Their normal prices don't seem terrible to me, but I haven't done a... (more)
how many times do you guys go to the market a month/week? How do you select what vegetables/meats you get? do you have a set list you buy every time or do you sort of forage? I used to have a pretty strict schedule of going to the market only... (more)
I've been optimizing food shopping by simply reducing the variety of foods that I eat. Grass-finished Beef, Pastured Eggs, Pastured Pork Sausage, Grass-fed Butter, Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil, Organic Avocados, Organic Lettuce, Organic Green... (more)
My parents and inlaws are asking me for Christmas gift ideas so I've been building a wish list these past couple of days. Among the items I'm thinking (I'm going for a broad selection and price range here): A tumbling composter Square foot... (more)
I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything that goes into the shopping and storage of a week's worth of protein. I find it most convenient to go grocery shopping once a week and buy all my poultry/beef/fish for the week in one go. But then I have no... (more)
Hi all, I was wondering where people have been getting grass-fed offal, and whether this is as important as getting typical grass fed meat cuts. For example, I live on the west coast where 99 Ranch sells lots of cheap obscure meat parts which I'm... (more)
Not 99 Ranch but I've never felt so miserable eating meat as when I eat meat from the Korean market in K-Town. I've never bought the fish but the pork and beef they sell makes me feel horrible. I guess I get what I pay for.
Ok, so Dr. Harris would probably put this in the category of "candy cigarettes," but for what it's worth here's a link to a site that sells cookies made with only paleo ingredients (including honey): http://www.cavemencookies.com/ Oh yeah, the... (more)
Meh, A pile of omega 6 and fructose, you can get gluten-free cookies that would probably taste better (and they have CHOCOALATE!). I'm firmly in the 'don't smoke candy cigarettes' camp, arsenic is paleo too, still not good idea to eat it.
I'm thinking mother's day for paleo!mom, but also in general. She has all the normal books like The Primal Blueprint, The Paleo Diet, Protein Power, ad nauseum, so she doesn't need more stuff telling her what the paleo diet is. She also doesn't... (more)
Hi, I live in India and don't have the will to bake my own bread. Does anyone know where I can buy Paleo breads in India ? Julian bakery does not ship to India. Thank you, Vishal (more)
Regular grocery, warehouse club (Costco, Sams etc), big box store (Walmart, Target etc)? Produce stands or markets, butchers, fish markets? Asian markets, other ethnic or specialty markets? Health food stores? Farmers market, CSA, meat share,... (more)
