    clean food scources? frustrated with "health food" stores/products

    Primal Fuel
    i have looked all over my area in alternative,organic and health food stores and am unable to find a lot of products that i normally use and eat. thes stores are heavily vegan/whole grain oriented. all the dressings and condiments have soy/corn/vegtable oils in them. even onion and mushroom soups. this is consistent in every store. no veg made pasta substitues either. found stewed tomatoes and tomato paste free of junk and that is it. any reasonable online scources of such things. are i am i going to have to go into the do it myself biz?

    Visit a grocery store and buy the best you can.
    Hunt around in the forums, in PB cookbook, on robbwolf.com, etc to find recipes.
    You won't regret homemade, imho.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    All the things you mention are processed foods. Cook from scratch. Eat real food. Once you get in the groove, it's really not that hard and it's way better for you.

    Forget pastas and pre-made soups. Cook real food. Meat, veggies. If you want mayo or dressing, make some. There are tomato pastes out there that are safe. My local store brand happens to be one of them.

    Meat & eggs, veggies, fruits, nuts. Don't need a health food store for those.

    I don't see that PB is possible w/o from scratch cooking. (or a SO that does it for you) If it's in a box, don't even pick it up.

    One thing that has really changed for me when starting Paleo is I actually became a pretty good cook. Make things from scratch with whole foods, you won't regret it.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
