Resources for Primal living

So how about some tips and resources for the post I did a couple of days ago?  If you didn't read that post and would like to, here's the link.

First of all, some resources.

Eat Wild   Check here to find local sources for grass fed foods.

Local Harvest    Another resource for finding local sources for organic, real food.

Real Milk   Check here to find where you can buy real (raw) milk.

Mark's Daily Apple   One of the best sources I've found for information.  They also have a huge, active forum where you can ask questions.

Amazon   I was amazed to learn about all the health products you can buy on Amazon!!!  I'm linking you here to the coconut oil I use.  I've also bought coconut flakes, coconut flour, and many other food products from Amazon.  They offer great prices and fast, free shipping on many items.

US Wellness Meats    I've ordered several times from this company.  The products I ordered (chuck roast bundle, liverwurst, and beef sticks) were of excellent quality and the shipping was fast.   I suggest signing up for their newsletter.  In addition to informative articles it will notify you of their sales.

In addition to the above resources, I subscribe to a number of blogs that regularly offer great recipes and information.  Some of these blogs are strictly paleo/primal, some follow similar eating plans such as GAPS or WAP.  The ones I'm listing are some of my favorites (in no particular order), but there are MANY more out there!

If you are a part of the Pinterest community, look me up there, I have a board dedicated to paleo/primal recipes.  I think I'm soon going to divide that board into 2 separate boards, savory and sweet, so the recipes will be easier to find.  I've discovered A LOT of great paleo/primal blogs on Pinterest by subscribing to others who link to paleo/primal blogs.  It's a great resource!

I think I'm going to stop here for now.  Lee Anne requested some sample menu plans, and I will do that for you over the next few days.  Have a good one :)

I will certainly read many of the sites you have listed, and I look forward to reading your future posts regarding diet.
