    I generally store it in the fridge because it takes me a few weeks to get through a batch, but a day or two outside the fridge should be fine. Make sure it's completely dried. Some vacuum seal theirs for longer trips; see Mark's post: How to Make Your Own Jerky | Mark's Daily Apple
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

      It is good, often great prices too, compared to other health food shopfronts. If anyone here uses protein powder, this can be a good place to get it. I particularly like Pro-Matrix Naked Whey (plain, simply grass-fed whey protein) or Wicked Whey (just with added organic cocoa and a little xylitol). I get it much cheaper at Great Earth than if ordering direct from the manufacturer!

      Beware of taking nutritional advice from some of the staff though - a few are rather trapped in CW/anti-meat thinking.

        There was a distinct vegan vibe there. I never ask non-paleos for nutritional advice!

        • Yeah I'm pretty sure all the bread at deeks has sugar in it too

          • And sugar and oils are the easiest things to sub! Deeks really missed out on making themselves appeal to another group or two or three of people.

                          Request for clarification from both of the above before I get too excited- are the sweet potatoes white on the outside and deep purple throughout the inside like in mark's article about yams and sweet potatoes?

                          • hmm slightly different. Here is a pic I took the other day.

                            • I think those might be the other purple ones mark was writing about- the ones that don't taste as good and are dry and starchy (apparently).

                              I checked out that Suveran cafe in Bondi Junction Sydney today for breakfast and it was actually really yummy! I ordered the lamb "crap" (crepe with a German accent apparently). It was really tasty (in a health food kinda way if that makes sense) and came with a free drinking coconut. Totally reasonably priced and massive (I couldn't finish it) so I ate all the filling (lettuces, a few pumpkin seeds, sprouts, Cauliflower, miscellaneous dark leafies, little tasty spinach balls, something similar to dhaal (but legume free) tender delicious lamb, I'm sure there was turmeric in there too but it wasn't Indian or curry-ish just really fresh and refreshing) and only a third of the crepe. The only oil they use to cook there is coconut oil and they use no sweeteners at all (so no sneaky agave) nor any legumes. I'll definitely go again! Really friendly too and lots of books around to read (Heaps on the evils of sugar and how great the sun in... though a few are a bit too hippy-ish for me). There was even an ORAC value poster. They apparently have organic skin care (magskinlover range) and other stuff too that I want to check out. The website says they have coconut water kefir and I really want to try that!!!

                              • Quite a few greengrocers on the Northern Beaches have the cream skinned, pale purple sweet potatoes. However, there is a Chinese grocer in Dee Why who sometimes has the real deal. I'll eat whichever I can get. They're both better than kumera
