Paleo Eats and Farmers Markets in Raleigh, NC – Recently I went to Raleigh, NC to go to my cousin’s wedding. It was my first time to stop in Raleigh even though I was born in Wilmington, NC and have been back to NC many times. We were only there for two nights and had a lot of wedding stuff to do but me and my little sister still found time to check out some paleo friendly local eats on the way.
Paleo Eats and Farmers Markets in Raleigh, NC

|Not rain or snow will keep us from local and organic food!|
Even though it was raining pretty hard at the Chapel Hill Farmers Market me and my sister set out to find some treats on Saturday morning from 8-noon. She found this great local farmers market near our hotel and we stocked up. We got some awesome walnut olive pomegranate (below) mixture from the farm to table restaurant Pom Kitchen.

Later we visited the Weaver Street Market and Coop where they have lots of local meats and prepared foods. Me and Ellen had a great time drinking organic decaf with coconut milk under their porch. For a great coffee try bulletproof coffee which is low in toxic mold on other coffees.

|The meat selection at the Weaver St. Market|
Always try to get 100% grass fed beef such this one which is not fed soy, corn or gmo contaminated clover. Feeding corn and soy to cows in the last stages can change the omega 3/6 ratio which can cause excess inflammation in our bodies. A good place to get beef is US Wellness Meats which is 100% grass fed.
|Some grass fed burgers with guacamole at The Spotted Dog
On Yelp they said the Spotted Dog was a vegetarian restaurant but it’s a good thing I checked it out further. They had some great grass fed burgers here! It was awesome to get some warm food on this rainy day. This burger with no bun really hit the spot.
|Took another local chocolate break|
|Black Mountain Chocolate on the road|
I went a little crazy on this trip with the chocolate and I paid the price. My pants are tight and it took me three full days to get over the cravings. If you crave chocolate all the time there is a good chance you are magnesium deficient. Eat lots of organic leafy/crunchy greens and take some extra like Natural Calm to soothe those tense muscles and ease stress. This one was way too sweet for me. I really only like the 85% plus dark chocolate but they had me at local, artisan and chile.

Remember when you are out of town is that with a few Yelp.com searches and using your smart phone you can find some great organic sustainable places just like you have back at home. There is no reason to give in to the bread temptations!
makes me miss Chapel Hill! You and Ellen look great!
