Good eggs should be a priority since they can be eaten all the time, are protein rich and the commercially produced stuff scares me with all the GMO grains they are being fed and the breeding ground for diseases their living conditions are.

    Even in the midwest there will be an ethnic market around, it may look dingy from the outside, but the meat and produce will be cheap on the inside. Ask the local taco truck where they get their meat.
    Yeah, I'm talking small town. We don't have taco trucks and our Mexican restaurant buys their stuff at Walmart. My best luck buying offal would be from a farmer.

    sb, i think you're forgetting, or don't realize, how far removed most americans from any kind of realization about their food sources and that their stryo-packed, shrink-wrapped meat comes from a WHOLE living animal.
    Yeah, I guess. But the tails and toes I bought also came shrink-wrapped on styrofoam. I guess I'm just a little bit more willing to try new things. And also it makes me very happy to have that extra cash in my pocket.

    protein and fat is the key to this diet. you do not need vegetables to survive or to be healthy. there is a lot of confusion on here about people making this a plant based diet. the true paleo diet was heavily meat based and in some cases it was 100% meat. check out my post here

    Funny story: I was shopping with my kids and they were all excited that there were pigs heads in the offal section. "can we get one? yay!". An elderly asian woman next to me (who I noticed was buying pigs trotters) asked me "I thought that only vietnamese people eat pigs heads? How do you eat it?". I said we roasted it (as a brawn), and then asked her how she cooked it. Her reply: "I'm not vietnamese". Burn.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Interesting, how long do you roast if for and at what temp? I am a pork fanatic but have never had the delicacy of the head.

    Ya I this is something I learned on the forum, I was struglling with the amount it costs for organic meats etc, found a farmer in my area and it actually works out to 4.50/lb for like amazing quality meats. It is the way to go for sure.
