    grace.c got a reaction from praxisproject in Sourcing food in Australia   
    I'm yet to find one. I began making my own broth in the slow cooker and used that instead. By topping up with water, I can leave it simmering and therefore have it on hand for days.

    Oh, mine too. Even though he is a biologist and KNOWS I'm right. I think it's because it's the houseplants. But I just do it when he is not paying attention, which isn't all that tricky.

    I think my husband would freak if I told him the basil was grown from my innards!

    I use www.iherb.com for all of my coconut products (inc aminos) and many supplements. They ship to AU within 3 business days or so and the shipping is extremely reasonable (around $8.50 or so.) I also have a discount code you can use: WEJ137 for $10 off orders over $40 or $5 if less than $40.
    I'm in Vic, for meat I use www.thefarmersmarket.com.au and organic produce from www.organicorigins.com.au.

    For anyone who buys frozen berries, some have recently been tested and contained pesticides banned in Australia. They're off my shopping list now, even the organic ones as the only organic brand I found was one of the contaminated ones and the country of origin is the same for both. [update: the stores seem to be dealing with whatever this was - labelling has changed and more stores selling organic frozen berries]

    I know the Berry King sells frozen berries locally, but not sure if they're organic.

    grace.c got a reaction from lulucandoit! in 100 days and still joint pain   
    Hi Laura, I also think AIP would be the way to go (assuming you haven't tried that). I discovered I have an egg intolerance and my reaction was very severe, including full body aches and joint issues, after eating only three eggs. Eggs and dairy are usually the main culprits for joint issues, I think. I was AIP compliant for only 32 days before I started reintroduction, so you might be closer than you think to a breakthrough. Hang in there.

    I'm taking mag, but I will double check my dose. I've been getting more spotty with my bedtime routine so I'll make that a focus for improvement and see how that goes.
    I do eat all the fat on my meats, plus there is added fat in the cooking process (separate to the extra spoonfuls I mentioned), but I'll up it even further and see how I respond. Pre WO I was having an egg with coconut oil, and post WO I was having another egg or chicken plus whatever carb I had around (sweet pot, greens or berries). I havent worked out at all this week but I'd probably sub chicken for the eggs.
    So eggs and chilli are the biggest changes since going AI. Ohhhhh... realisation... My daily meals weren't that much different, a lot spicier, but I was using a lot of mayo which I haven't really substituted with anything. That'd be a lot of fat and protein missing that I was originally having. Thank you! I'll go figure out a way to add more day & protein back in.
