I am Very new to Paleo and actually started Paleo after hearing about Wheat Belly and how bad GMO wheat is. My question is about organic/ NON GMO wheat, is that wheat still bad for you and if so how and why?

If you are absolutely going to eat wheat (which I'd advise against), fermented bread products (like sourdough) are the best. The bacteria break down a significant amount of the proteins, lectins, etc.

Myth 0 · April 21, 2013 at 9:16 PM

Since most corn is GMO, probably. Since they don't specifically advertise as non-GMO, probably. Since it is Kirkland brand, probably. Corn is a grain anyways so isn't technically Paleo. Short Answer: Probably.

You could go for the Irish approach - potatoes and milk. Add some free range eggs, sardines and occasional ground beef and liver and you're pretty much there. (Assuming you're ok with potatoes and dairy.)
