As part of the shopping section of Paleo Polly, I want to offer you a guided tour of some of my favourite food stores. The stores that feature in these guided tours, are places in which you can pick up 100% paleo goodies, at excellent prices.

The first store to feature is in my view the top health food store in Leeds; Milles. Millies’ is pretty large when it comes to health food stores, and the immediate thing that smacks you in the face when you walk in, it their vast supply of whole foods, nuts and seeds.

Yes, some of these wonderful grainy goodies are banned from the paleo diet, but it is certainly worth standing back, and admiring.

Salt?

Salt?

If you investigate down the isles, you will come across many paleo ingredients. Check out Himalayan salt, to aid digestion. Beautiful pink crystals, it is wonderful to display on your dinner table.

I always struggle to find coconut flour, in my more local health food store; this is because there just isn’t the demand for it. Coconut Flour is a great ingredient to use for paleo baking. Extremely absorbent, you must use coconut flour in a different way to traditional flours. Coconut Flour is great for using as a batter base, or simply coating on chicken to achieve texture, and that crunchy effect.

Millies in addition, offer a reasonable selection of meats; should you feel the need to pick up some fresh sausages for a BBQ perhaps.

The store also offers a vast array of vitamin/ health supplements, and upstairs is a sports nutrition section.

The staff in Milles are extremely helpful, and it is always interesting to pick their brains on the latest supplement, product, or unusual veg to hit the store. If you do head in, I would specifically recommend that you say hello and have a chat! You might learn something new!

I hope you enjoyed the guided tour around Milles Leeds. Let me know if you have shopped there and what you think! :-)

That’s all for now folks.
