I've read in several sources that even "cold pressed" canola is rancid because the pressing process generates its own heat due to the friction of pressing. It then has to be bleached and refined to get rid of the rancid smell. The fact that it's... (more)

Is the corn oil from GMO corn in Kirkand roasted seasoned seaweed?

582e89904fef55ad5c7dac673653ef8c
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.)

Is it possible for you to get organic apples? They are part of the dirty dozen list. Otherwise, I believe GMO fruits and/or veggies will have a number that begins with 8 instead of 4 for regularly produced and 9 for organics.

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.
