As evidenced by the foods you listed, green leafies obviously aren't the only healthy way to get more plants in your diet.  Berries, nuts, and many others are very nutrient dense, and combined with the fish, meat, and bone broth, I don't see... (more)

Hey all- Relatively new to the Paleo Diet but am so happy with the results so far.  My question is: if you eat a moderate amount of fruit in a day, do you need to watch the fats you then take in? Are the sugars in the fruit going to... (more)

Since you're not likely to find any, try seafood from Newport or McGrath's. I was in Corvallis last night and had some excellent bacon guacamole at del Alma. They had a lot of tapas and charcuterie that could pass for paleo.
