For all those interested. I have found a farm that sells meat Nation wide (UK). They haven't gone through the expensive process of labelling their foods organic. I have emailed them though and all animals are fed the correct food type IE beef... (more)

I've read the list of what they send - but I wouldn't want 25 chicken breasts, I'd want 10 or 12 whole chickens. Similarly, I'd rather have 4 steaks and lots of other bits of meat with nice sinews and collagen-y bits to make stews and... (more)

Okay so I'm not exactly poor, and you might say I'm a "man" not a boy (28). I do live in south OC (it's near LA county for those unfamiliar) and I'm not wealthy. It's been tough trying to find any meats and fish that I can trace to their origins.... (more)

One easy solution, which is not that obvious to many people is: Eat less meat. It's true that good quality meat is more expensive, but a paleo diet does not need to be a meat-based diet. It's important to include meat and/or fish, but you... (more)

I agree with the other poster. Eggs, in general, are good paleo food sources, since even the most commercially raised eggs are still a good source of protein and nutrients. But the gold standard is free range where they're allowed to scavenge... (more)

We don't have a beef industry like the one in the US - its easy to find pasture fed beef because all cattle is on pasture - at worst some of it is "grain finshed". In Australia we have to pay MORE if we want special "grain fed" varieties! The cost... (more)

I've found even the natural eggs are soyfed. Other than buying pastured free range online, how do I get healthy high omega 3 eggs? Or does the chicken negate the huge amount of negatives from soy during digestion?
