    Re the grass fed meat issue. I grew up on a farm and the cattle that we sold for eating were grass fed and were often bought by Coles, Woollies etc The cattle are still grass fed so I'd be really interested to know how much of what is in the supermarket/butchers is actually grass/grain fed. I'll bet the grain fed proportion went up during the drought though...

    Both my butchers have grass fed, the only grain fed they sell is stuff like waygu. But then again, the last 2 summers in Vic have been very wet.

    For those with a kefir interest, I found a pack of kefir starter at the Go Vita in Knox (Melb). Haven't tried making it yet though - I'm too scared!

    It's this brand: Kefir Turkish Yoghurt Probiotic :: Products :: Nature's Goodness Australia

    I've had no luck here in Melbourne. Apparently nitrate keeps the meat from going black during curing/smoking? I tried normal bacon I got a terrible headache, so it's out for me.

    I've never seen nitrate free bacon here. If I do I'll post about it.

    Every few weeks I'm in Canberra and I don't know of a good deli there. I mostly am in the Woden area and I tried the deli in Woden Westfield and the 2 cheeses I got there were very substandard and the semi-dried tomatoes were unpleasant (though the anchovy-stuffed olives were good and so was the ricotta). I know cheese isn't really primal but it's an indulgence so I like it to be good and I think most people on here know good food from average. Any suggestions?

    I just buy good poached or smoked salmon, Huon-brand (Woolworths) or creamy goats cheese if I'm limited to treats without a good deli around. The big supermarkets all have some nice things, probably better than the options of a bad deli sometimes?

    I have to admit that I live close to Woden and I NEVER go to the deli there, something about it just puts me off. To be honest the big supermarkets have a great range of cheeses now and I usually buy there, if I'm looking for something special I will go to the Fyshwick markets.

    I noticed today that IGA have a lot of good looking (ie not many ingredients and no chemical concoctions) wheat free breads. I have teenage sons who can definitely afford to eat bread but I want to cut down on the wheat so I'm going to give these a try... as well as making some.
