Paleo in Potsdam? On a budget? Not the easiest thing to do. Potsdam is a gentrification area. Middle class people with good to very good income. Living on a budget in Berlin is easier. Potsdam has the discounter shops like aldi, Schlecker and Lidl but that crap food is not Paleo. You can buy some organic goods there but the rest is crap. And they treat their personal like CAFOs treat their animals. That’s another reason why I don’t buy there.
I prefer dm-drugstores. They have more organic stuff (soap, washing powder nuts, chocolate, tea etc.)
My Paleo recommendations for Potsdam and Berlin:
Buy meat only grass fed/pastured (farmers market and Neuland butchers). Organic meat is too expensive if you are on a budget and often grain fed . But there eare small farmers and local farmers markets in Berlin & Brandenburg. A good chioice for Paleo on a budget is Neuland. Hormone free, antibiotic free, often pastured.
Ground beef, chicken breast, beef goulasch, liverwurst is cheap.
Call the Neuland butchers in your area and ask if there meat is grass feed. Beef very often is. Pork and chicken is not.
You can get organ meats but you have to order it in advance. Usually they only have beef liver in the regular range of goods. And organ meats are dirt cheap because nobody wants them. Sometimes you find rabbit liver or chicken liver at Karstadt.
Wildschwein (boar) in Brandenburg & Berlin
If you live in the outer areas of Berlin or Potsdam you will have regular visits from your four-legged friends in your Garden. Like here in Berlin-Zehlendorf. :-)
So you can catch a pig from the streets or you can buy one in a shop.;-)
