I am a huge fan of Amazon's short shipping times, selection, and competitive pricing. I've bought macadamia nuts, macadamia oil, single-serve packets of almond butter, dried apple chips, and many, many other nonperishables from Amazon. Now I'd like to know: What paleo foodstuffs have YOU enjoyed via Amazon? On the flip side, are there any items that you thought would be a slam dunk but turned out to be major duds? Linking encouraged!
Here's my list of paleo-friendly Amazon buys I've received with good results. Subscribe and Save is the bomb if you want to save a bit extra (and then cancel after placing your order).
ETA some more I forgot:
Someone mentioned Wild Planet (WP) sardines above, but Amazon offers their whole line of seafood products (absolutely the best canned seafood: Wild/Sustainably caught, BPA free cans, no added liquids/MSG, actually tastes good right out of the can, etc.)... I mainly buy Albacore, skipjack and salmon w/ SS. Zoe Organic EVOO is amazing as well, a very mild buttery tasting olive oil. Also, the Numi bulk teas are priced very well and are pretty good IMHO.
In addition to some of the things above:
Not foodstuffs, but I also get most supplements and household supplies (Dr. Bronner's soap, etc) from Amazon.
I was going to start a thread like this last week when the Prime shipping I'd been gifted expired. So cheers to you for asking because it will help me decide if I want to shell out for another year of Prime.
A staple for me from Amazon is the Nutiva unrefined extra virgin coconut oil. They have really good prices there... About half what I'll see it for elsewhere. Though I had a weird experience my last time buying it. The stuff came in a sort of soft melted state. Not at all like the first two batches we'd gotten on Amazon. We still used it for cooking but I wonder if maybe we should have just sent it back.
Good supplement deals on Amazon too... I get Fish Oil and Vitamin D there. Oh and they have tinned cod liver if you want to eat the delicious real thing instead of going for the oil.
I see they also have good bulk prices for coconut flakes or shredded coconut. I've purchased that same brand from a local market and it's good quality.
Native forest coconut milk is significantly cheaper. Its also bpa free.
Big packs of sardines are good too. Does anyone know of bpa free brands?
I've gotten the azar nut company macadamias for a pretty decent price too.
The lets do organic coconut products are good.
I also get some of my supplements there like k2 and magnesium that are cheaper than at whole foods.
You guys should check out Swanson Health Products at www.swansonvitamins.com. I did a quick search and a lot of the products you mentioned in this thread are actually cheaper on that site. I absolutely love it for any vitamins, supplements, and even things like coconut oil and spices. Best deal of anywhere I've found. And they do promotions all the time for free shipping or buy one get one items.
Check it out! :)
I like Seasnax as a convenient source of iodine: http://www.amazon.com/SeaSnax-Roasted-Seaweed-Classic-2-16-Ounce/dp/B0036IO1IK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1335282860&sr=8-2
our once a month pizza indulgence crust http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001ACMCNA/ref=rcxsubs_mys2_product_title
for the kids:
,..to name a few,.... i feel like I do 50% of my shopping there these days
I would suggest this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001216DA2/ref=oh_o04_s00_i01_details It's pretty expensive, but it's worth it in my opinion, because it's got 6 different varieties! Sea vegetables are important on Paleo for their different kind of vitamins and iodide, should be consumed once a week or so.
