In reading "Fat Chance" by Dr. Robert Lustig, he makes a thought provoking statement. "Real food doesn't have or need a nutrition label. The more labels you read the more garbage you're buying." After thinking about this, I realized that I... (more)
Eh I do a blend of both. As much as I would love to eat all whole/real foods, I do enjoy my almond milk and a few random things that require checking labels. For the most part it's meat, fat and veggies..but heck, I ain't perfect.
Hello peeps. I'm currently looking for fruits that are super super high in vitamin c. I've been taking supplemental vitamin c (just plain-old ascorbic acid, 500 mg), but I feel like I'd benefit more if I got it in whole-food form. Also, I don't... (more)
My chiropractor (with 38 years of experience) is adamant that my muscle cramping & twitching is from low calcium, and not now magnesium. Last year when I ruled out deficiencies of calcium & magnesium, I did so using pills. My doc asked:... (more)
The high calcium doesn't doesn't seem to be the solution for my muscle cramping, edema, headache. I'm still experimenting, but the oxalates seem high on the suspect list. Mike
Hi everyone. I just got back from Whole Foods where I bought a bunch of uncured fresh bacon thinking there would be no sugar in it. When I got home I read the label and of course, one of the ingredients I read was sugar. Since it is uncured it... (more)
The fish-guy at Whole Foods today told me to check out their website where they have all kinds of interesting data on fat ratios of their farmed salmon, and how they are the same as wild. I took a look but didn't find what he was mentioning. I... (more)
I had a long talk with a pretty knowledgeable guy at a Vitamin Shoppe a couple days ago and we got to talking about protein powders and the difference between fast absorbing proteins and slow absorbing proteins. He mentioned how whey gets... (more)
My aunt-in-law has a number of health problems and has been asked to avoid carbs, salt, fat, and potassium as much as possible by her doctors while still keeping her calories up to 1200-1500 a day. I know this isn't a strictly paleo thing, but... (more)
Low fat is usually a code-word for low animal fat so use avocados and olive oil, and just eat regular trimmed beef and skinless chicken rather than super rich ribeye steaks or bacon.
I'm not a fan of the paleo diet, but it is the only solution to my issues. I push the limits to see what grains/foods I can tolerate and which I cannot. Recently I tried to go paleo for a whole day. At lunch I had vegetables, fruit and flavoured... (more)
Does anyone know if this ground lamb from Whole Foods (from New Zealand) is: Grass Fed? How old is it likely to be? (I don't think it is shipped frozen, and New Zealand is pretty far away from Philadelphia). From what I understand, lamb... (more)
Basically all NZ beef and lamb products are grass fed
I travel a lot for work (4 days per week, every week) and so I spend a lot of time in hotels without kitchens and grabbing pre-cooked meals and snacks from wherever I can. Recently I started buying bags of organic peeled hard boiled eggs from... (more)
Going to to the "big city" tomorrow and thought I'd squeeze in a visit to Whole Foods and/or Trader Joes. Anything in particular there that I should stock up on that are otherwise hard to find in average grocery stores? I might just go marvel at... (more)
I have been on a mission to find or make the perfect alternative to a flour tortilla. Here is my standard for perfection. 1) it must be large and thin enough to wrap around food and make a "burrito" without falling apart. Not a taco a... (more)
Do you have a complaint about something paleo-related? I sure do. Spew it out--but if you're going to spew, spew into this! (thanks Garth) Whole Foods- I used to shop at the discount-iest of the discount grocery stores before paleo. Now I shop... (more)
In Whole Foods, while most poultry receive an animal welfare rating of 1-3, the Cornish game hens are labelled as 5, which according to them means that they're pasture-raised. But does this absolutely guarantee that they're not grain fed? I'm... (more)
I pick up a produce CSA once a week, a meat CSA once a month and go to the farmer's market every week. I find myself at Trader Joe's at least twice a week and at Whole Foods a few times a month. A run of the mill standard grocery store is within... (more)
Living Social has a great deal today. http://mashable.com/2011/09/13/livingsocial-whole-foods/ What will you use the $20 deal for? (OK, it's not a super serious PaleoHacks question. But it's a good deal, so I wanted to be sure everyone knew... (more)
bought mine as soon as I saw my LivingSocial email this morning since we shop there quite a bit. I bought a bison tritip from Whole Foods last month and thoroughly enjoyed it. May have to buy another one with this coupon.
I see Whole Foods having a one day sale on grass fed beef at 4.99/lb on Sept 2nd http://blog.wholefoodsmarket.com/2011/08/one-day-sale-ground-beef/ never have purchased from Whole Foods,...(just out of the way for me) Have you? have you liked... (more)
You should by from U.S. Wellness Meats instead: http://www.grasslandbeef.com USWM actually supports and promotes the paleos lifestyle, they were at the AHS giving out free meat snacks, and have weekly newsletter columns. WholeFoods discourages... (more)
Me? I prepare for my hunt by shopping the overcrowded Whole Foods in the city with a very short list of items in mind. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UFc1pr2yUU# I simply couldn't resist. :) (Feel free to close if you feel too off topic.) (more)
Here in NZ, we call these butternut. And what do I do with it? I possibly shouldn't have just bought it when at the supermarket without looking at what I can do with it first :P (more)
I just noticed in the last few weeks that the Whole Foods nearest to my house has dropped its per-brick cost of Kerrygold to $2.49, which beats the $2.69/$2.79 that I see at Trader Joe's in the region. In fact I haven't seen Kerrygold cheaper than... (more)
Yep, I saw a special deal in Whole Foods at the end of April. Also, to my surprise, my local Wegmans droped the price to $2.79 after I complained to them. They used to sell it for $4.99 / 8oz.
Why the hell does the whole foods brand bacon (as well as some others... I don't bother checking the ones over $8) have evaporated cane juice?? And whole foods puts evaporated cane juice and every other toxic ingredient they can possibly find in... (more)
Hi! I went to Whole Foods yesterday and found this little piece of beauty when I was going to check out. http://www.peppersmith.co.uk/ It's made entirely from natural ingredients and sweetened with xylitol. I quit chewing gum when I went Paleo... (more)
Hey New York City Hackers, care to share your favorite places to buy food? Restaurants/produce stands/farmers markets/etc... Commodities Natural Food Market - in the E. Village on 1st Ave. It's a little Vegan/Grain centric, but they have GREAT... (more)
Guys, please don't mention the raw d*a*iry stuff by name. Only that you know about it and people can privately email you for more info. A lot of these clubs have been extensively persecuted by the state and have already had to change their... (more)
I find myself using them as a back-up often when traveling. I've become a bit of a coffee addict in the last five years, and like being able to get a buffet meal and coffee in the same place. My other staples when jetting around are Thai... (more)
I was reading an interesting post on PaNu. It's basically a rant against most supplements and everyone looking for a "magic bullet". Here's an excerpt: Living in ketosis 24/7 - even though this requires persistent avoidance of starches... (more)
