Beyond Paleo- Paleo(esq) for the everyman, everyday

I`m looking for dietary solutions for migraines, endometriosis and bipolar. I`ve been bumbling though a gazillion websites and here is another great one, that takes a measured approach to the paleo-diet. My least favorite part of what I`ve been reading about Paleo influenced diets is the lack of focus on eating local and seasonally. This is really important to me, as a rural resident surrounded by farms. I just can feel the bristles going up when I read so many recipes focusing on exotic foods such as coconut milk. Don`t get me wrong, I triple heart coconut milk. I am just trying to wrap my mind around all the transport potentially involved in any diet not focused on what`s grown at home. I am finding plenty of gardens in paleosphere blogs, so I`m going to try to plow through lots of them before ordering seeds this year. Our goal is to be fairly self sufficient in the grand future, I`m curious what sorts of nut trees thrive in a 6B garden…

Without further ado, my link of the day.

    We have tons of wild hazelnut trees! Next year I am hoping we are there at the right time to harvest them, Curious if they will be too frost affected by the time we get home? I am pretty sure we can try to plant walnut too!
