Want to reap all the benefits of the Bulletproof Diet?

It’s about more than just eating the foods on the green end of the spectrum; it’s about eating the highest quality versions of those foods, which sometimes can be hard to find.

Ideally, the foods you eat will be local, organic, grass-fed, and raw, and those foods aren’t always on the shelf of any corner market or chain grocery store.

This post provides a free downloadable shopping list (click to get the pdf) for when you do end up in a grocery store, as well as some resources below to find out how to buy high quality foods online.

BulletproofShoppingGuideYou shouldn’t need x-ray vision to tell what something is – especially something you eat.

If you can’t tell what’s in something just by looking at it or reading its ingredient list, it’s fair to assume that it’s more processed than you want and probably not very Bulletproof.

This new Bulletproof grocery shopping guide and checklist (download it for free here) will help you do just that:

The next section will help you find more Bulletproof foods in the area near you, then the last section below provides resources for finding high quality foods, especially grass-fed meats and organic veggies, online.  You can save money by buying in bulk!

Tips To Find The Best Food At Your Local Grocery Store

Awesome upgraded health food stores are popping up all over these days, and I don’t just mean Whole Foods.

But if you are in a pinch and need to go to a standard chain grocery store, there are still some ways to make sure you pick the healthiest foods:

  • First of all, shop the aisle: shop around the outside of the store – this is where refrigerated produce and foods are kept, and you probably don’t want to eat that much that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. You definitely don’t want to eat anything that doesn’t go bad.  Avoid the junk food and frozen food middle aisles as much as possible.
  • Look for local foods: any grocery stores now advertise if something is local. Buy organic produce, especially if the item doesn’t have a hard, protective layer (like bananas and melons).
  • Finally, look for grass-fed meat and dairy and wild seafood. If you can find some that’s both grass-fed and organic, you get bonus Bulletproof points, but if nothing’s grass-fed, go for organic.
  • Another trick is that you should avoid anything with an ingredients list.

How To Look Up Bulletproof Food Near You (Or Online)

To get the most nutritious food, you may have to look a little bit and shop around for the best quality and prices, but this resource makes it easier for you by giving you a shortcut to the best foods.

If you want to know where you can get raw grass-fed dairy, organic grass-fed meat, or organic produce locally, just reach out to your Weston Price Foundation chapter leader. These chapter leaders have already researched where to get the best nutrient-dense, Bulletproof food in your area so they can point you in the right direction. The Foundation also gives you access to an annual shopping guide that rates commercial vendors and their food so you can find out which stores really offer the most Bulletproof options.

Local Harvest is a fantastic resource for people who want to find local farmers to buy their food from directly. This website has a directory of over 30,000 farms and farmers’ markets as well as restaurants and stores that sell local food. Each farm or company maintains its own listing so you can keep track of their offerings, specials, and events.

If you want to shop the bounty of several local farms all at once, use this website, which has a listing of farmers’ markets all across America. You can search your area to see where your local farmers’ markets are as well as their hours. There are also links to all of the farmers’ markets’ websites so that you can check for the most up-to-date information.

Eat Well Guide is another directory to help you find locally grown food, but it’s not just limited to American farms – it includes listings in Canada. This site lists the normal farms, farmers’ markets, grocery stores, and restaurants, but it also includes CSAs and orchards to provide you with even more options. Every listing in the Eat Well Guide offers sustainable, organic, humanely raised food so you know whatever you’re getting is good and good for you.

The database on the CISA website doesn’t just allow you to search for local farms; it allows you to search by product so if you’re craving fresh red peppers, you don’t have to travel to several farms before you find them. Instead, you can search for farms that grow exactly what you want. The site also has a coordinator for wholesale buyers such as restaurants and stores so that they can gain access to the best local food. This site is a great resource, but is limited to farms and events in southern New England.

If you don’t just want to be Bulletproof with your food, but also with your water, check out Findaspring.com. This site is a community-maintained database of natural springs so that you can drink from the cleanest, healthiest water around.

If you want pasture-raised, grass-fed meat, USWellness is the place to go. They’ve even done lab tests on their meat that has shown, time and again, that their meat has more omega-3s, vitamins, CLAs, and other nutrients than grain-fed meat does. They offer beef, lamb, bison, and goat, grass-fed dairy, free-range poultry, and other Bulletproof treats – like grass-fed beef bone broth.

The turkeys you buy at the grocery store today can’t fly because they’re too heavy. They’re lucky if they can even walk properly with the oversized breasts they have been bred to grow. But originally, turkeys enjoyed active lives that included flying. Today you can only get these original turkeys – or Heritage turkeys – a few places, and Heritage Foods is one of them. Heritage Foods has also expanded to raise cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and other poultry naturally, the way the animals would live in the wild. They also slaughter their animals seasonally, believing that animals are better in certain seasons just as produce is, and you can ship any of their meat straight to your house.

    Dave,

    I thought Psyllium Husk was bad for the lining of your gut but you added it as an ingredient in your new Collagen Pancake Recipe. Has there been new evidence showing benefit to taking Psyllium Husk now?

    Thanks!?

    • Dasha

      I haven’t done any research on this nor ever heard of the issue you are talking about, but from what I heard, Psyllium Husk is healthy for your gut, and it’s a safe and great fiber supplement. It has gelling qualities when combined with water, as do ground flax seeds and ground chia seeds. If you need to use something in baking to help things “stick together” better you can probably substitute any of these.

      • Joy

        I’ve known for years that psyllium husk is abrasive to the gut lining. Don’t remember where but I had researched this in the 90’s. Sometimes I use a bit here and there, but never more than once a week. Reminds me of the wheat bread my uncle used to get in Minnesota in the 60’s, containing sawdust for fiber.

  • Juan Valdez

    Dave, I’m perplexed by eating fat from animals in general. While I understand organic grass fed beef is much healthier than grain fed beef, I don’t understand how eating the fat is healthy. From what I understand, fat in both humans and animals is where toxins are stored, among other things – I’m certainly no expert so I’m saying this more from ignorance than anything. If true, why eating any fat from grass fed cows would be healthy in any way? Perhaps you can shed some light. Thank you in advance.

    What about suppliers and outlets in the uk or eu?

  • Guest

    Yes! I too am desperate for guidance in the UK. I’d love to open up a Bulletproof store over here as I find it hard to find distributers and having been bulletproof for the last year I want to spread the word for us 40 something hormonal human beings 🙂

    • Iain Bruce

      you can buy bulletproof exec products from http://www.enhancednation.com she will sell you all the coffee, oils, proteins, supplements etc on that list

  • Nici

    I too would like to find more suppliers here in th UK. I’d also like to suggest we have our own Bulletproof coffee shops/stores?! I’ve been Bulletproof for a year now and would liken to continue to spread the word for us forty something ladies 🙂

    • Shawn

      Nici, I don’t know if you live in London but I have joined a Paleo meetup to find some Bulletproof buddies. Whole Foods in Kensington sells Bulletproof coffee, bacon w/o nitrates and all the ingredients packaced together for bone broth! Shawn

  • Nic Kat

    The Grocery Shopping List has certainly expanded and diversified from the BP Infographic Chart.
    Amazing recommendations Dave.

  • Thanks Dave!

  • Gina

    Why are you recommending artificial sweeteners of any kind on your shopping list?

    • CC

      none of those are artificial. xylitol and erythritol are derived from either corn or trees (choose trees. see xyla brand). stevia is from a the stevia plant. sorbitol and malitol are sugar alcohols, which aren’t sugar at all, their molecule is just similar looking to a sugar molecule. dextrose, glucose and honey are all natural sugars.

  • David C

    Is there really no Poultry on the proteins list?

    • Gerald2558

      I work from home, completing some basic jobs which only required a PC and internet connection and I am happier than ever… After six months on this job and i had profit in total 36,000 dollars… Basicly i get paid close to $80/hour and work for 3-4 hours most of the days.And awesome thing about this job is that you get to choose yourself when to work and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of every week. -> ———> FInD OuT MORE hErE <-

    What about our skin??? Will this fast weight loss allow it to wrinkle more if we are older

    • Thorverine

      Only if you lose muscle as well

  • Amy Brennan

    Don’t rule out the frozen section entirely. It can be great to have flash frozen veggies or meat on hand for last minute meals. I keep a big bag of spinach and ground lamb – with hot sauce – makes a fast, healthy meal over rice.

  • Martin Upton

    So are these listed in decending order of bulletproof-ness?
