    I suggest you skip the corn altogether.

    I wouldn't. It's a grain. But if you just can't live w/out it, I'd try a trusted organic source. Or Mexico. They grow over 27 different kinds of corn, and are trying (it won't work) to keep GMO corn out of the country. Problem with that is that our government (read you and me if you pay taxes) subsidizes the production of corn here to the extent that it's actually sometimes cheaper for Mexicans to buy our corn from grocery stores.

    I think about it this way. Corn is basically sugar and fiber. Take a stick and sprinkle some sugar on it and it's about the same.

    Amy's is a local company where I live. Good folks, but they cater to the vegetarian crowd. They do gluten free meals, but not grain free. I don't think I have ever seen anything by them that's grain free.

    It kills me that the gov. considers corn on the cob, or kernal corn a veg, then when it dries it is magically transformed back to a grain....face palm.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    One of the hard truths about eating whole, unprocessed foods is that some of the convenience goes out of life. Canned soups, packaged dinners and cereals, fast food eateries, and a variety of other conveniences we once took for granted as at least a sometimes thing don't cut it if you really want to eat healthily.

    Amen. I have been experiencing that 100% lately. There are unprocessed alternatives but they are generally hard to find and expensive.

    If you have a lot of trouble with needing the convenience and/or portability of frozen meals then you can make your own. I make large meals and freeze portions of things like stews, sauces, chilli, certain casseroles, etc... It gets easier the more you do it.
