    I was thinking a bit more specific than that. ;-)

    Liver, pastured butter, coconut oil, low omega-6 meats like beef and lamb, fish, shellfish, a very wide variety of vegetables.

    For me it would be spinach (or other dark greens), avocados, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, butter, fresh or frozen berries, coconut milk, dark chocolate, canned salmon & tuna, eggs, and meat: beef, pork, chicken. I don't like lamb and I haven't gotten the eating of offal ... yet. But I do have a calf liver in the freezer.

    The above list are my staples and I add bits and pieces that I fancy or find on sale: cauliflower, broccoli, chard, kale, baby cucumbers, grape tomatoes, fresh peaches, apples, almond butter, etc.

    And a few supplements: Vit D, fish oil, magnesium citrate, B12.
    Newcomers: If you haven't read the book, at least read this thread ... and all the links!

    On a budget? Pastured eggs and russet potatoes.

    I wouldn't put chicken(or turkey or duck or pork) on an essential list because they are relatively high in omega-6. The same with nuts. They're more like occasional foods.

    This is really the best answer. You don't need to get more specific than this because it doesn't really matter which varieties of those you eat. As long as none of it is processed and you are eliminating wheat and beans and things like that, you are doing fine.

    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
