Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

I find that whenever I need organ meats most in my diet (ie. period, intense training) I find them the least palatable, and instead want really palatable foods like fruits, nuts, chocolate, starchy vegetables, and fermented dairy?
