I've just started the paleodiet a few weeks ago. How do you shop in order to not get bored from the same food items? I've already run into a rut with the same regiment of 5-6 meals/snacks a day. Any suggestions?

Chickens are meant to digest corn, so it's totally fine for them to eat it. But you do want them also to have grass and bugs, so you are looking for eggs marked "pastured". Where are you located?
