Hostelling might be your best bet in this case. There are hostels in most of the major cities (probably the smaller ones as well, but I never made it to those) and they usually have kitchens with cooking implements and a large # of refridgerators... (more)

A couple times now, I've seen leg of lamb for sale at the regular grocery store nearby that is labeled "Product of Australia." It is not labeled grass fed or organic. My understanding is that cows and sheep are generally not fed grain in... (more)

These kinds of supplements seem like bullshit to me and it is unfortunate that Paleo is headed down this path. "Don’t let digestive upset keep you from Paleo success. Making any change to your diet can put a strain on your digestion. Use the... (more)

I know this is a very specific question, but it's difficult to figure out! I've heard the beef here is often grain-finished (depending on rainfall and the seasons), and this is a selling-point for many suppliers. But what about lamb/goats? On... (more)

Woolworths & Coles - will be grain finished. Local butcher - ask. They are all going to be different. Any good butcher will be able to tell you. Go to the Sydney markets and ask, I can guarantee that you will find 100% grass fed no worries... (more)

Hello, I am new to Australia. I am looking for grass fed dairy products. Are "organic" brands, grass fed?
