I'm curious if there is something that you've found yourself wishing you had to make Paleo decisions or questions or implementation or conversations easier to handle. Makes your Paleo LIFE just a little less of a hassle.
I don't want to put in too many examples to bias your answers. I'd just love to hear some ideas on "that would be super to have in my Paleo bag of tricks!"
If there are some great answers this might be a good Meta question (not entirely sure how that works).
A sustainable family farm with an orchard, cows, goats, chickens, badass garden, root cellar, maybe a trout stream nearby, no bills, no need to work outside of the home/farm, low stress.. that would be nice.
What makes my paleo conversations easier with other people is mostly not to have them. Food's highly personal, like religion, and people are just as touchy about it. I do, however, keep my old Driver's license with my fat photo, and show it to people who want to dispute the benefits while saying "That was me before paleo/low carb."
What would make my food life more convenient is if my wife ate the same way. She's now T2 diabetic and won't let go of her carb addiction, despite my example.
So I think the desire of the OP is more policy than a "Grass-fed, organic, whole-foods approach drive through on every corner" (which would be awesome.)
From a policy standpoint I'd just like real science to be conducted in nutritional sciences. Too many of these studies are not properly controlled, thus the findings can be interpreted or thrown out for a million reasons. If we had real science, and real scientist who are looking to eliminate obesity and obesity related diseases through practical solutions, and not just trying to find the next prescriptive drug to trick your body into not properly functioning (like Statins and Fat-blockers) then we could start to have merited debates about the potential solutions with facts and not N=1 and ideology driving the decisions.

I'd like someone doing all my prep’ work...I mean yes, keeping up with my knife skills is important but when Spike TV is playing a Star Wars marathon for the 100th time...I of course need to be watching that and not trying to perfect the perfect bone broth rub for a pork butt...priorities is all I'm saying...priorities and laziness wink
The Problem: There are millions of paleo recipes out there on the internet (which is great) but a lot of them are created by people that don't know a thing about cooking or the science behind it. So they throw some things together and by some miracle it works for them so they post it, sometimes with a picture that isn't even theirs. Then people try to make it and its aweful and you've just wasted lots of money.
Solution: Create a website much like Chowstalcker but with the ability to rate the recipe like Food.com. That way the bad ones can be avoided, money saved, and the real winners can shine through. I miss food.com. I loved searching for a recipe that showed 500 people giving it 5 stars, the recipe always turned out awesome. Unfortunately, there are only about 20 paleo recipes on there.
