Title: Hello from Portugal
Post by: BFCP on June 24, 2018, 11:46:12 pm
Hi, I'm on my 20s, and I'm interested in a primitive and natural way of life. I found this forum through the YouTube channel sv3rige. Hoping to learn a bit more here. Will start this diet soon, as strict as I can.

Best regards

From which area of portugal are you from? Do you have access to raw foods there? Like raw dairy, organ meats...

I'm in the Lisbon metro area. Think so, but I'm in the process of finding those places. In the Lisbon centre there is for sure, but in my area it will probably be more difficult. We'll see.

Ok. Good to know. I know there are some organic markets in the central area of lisbon which might be the first place to look for when getting raw produce directly from farmers. And then those farmers are then probably located outside or in the vicinity of lisbon.

Talked with an herdsman today, probably the only one in my area, he has cows, goats, black pigs, horses... still he doesn't make milk, and meat he only sells the all animal. Lisbon centre it is.

Hi Bfcp!

You can come to see me, I live near Aljezur, in Algarve. I found a permaculture farm in Alentejo, they have sheep, exclusively grass fed. But there's a broad choice of excellent seafood in Portugal.Fruits and veggies are first class as well, much better than in France. There are almonds, walnuts, peanuts, chestnuts, olives, etc. Papayas ("mamao") and some mangoes from Brazil are cheap and excellent too.

Overall, I find that Portugal is one of the best countries in the World for its choice of tasty raw foods - and other things as well!  :)

Hi, I'd love to! Nice to hear, for me the store in Mercado da Ribeira of Herdade do Freixo do Meio is more convenient, lots of stuff there.

Eheh glad I'm in Portugal then  :D

Hi Iguana

I received a strange  circular mail the other day from GCB stating he was in Portugal to take care of a new "pro-genetic agroforestry project"  in this country.

I can't  imagine Burger coming to Portugal without you being  in the know.   

Could you let us know some details of this most interesting project ?

Cheers

Hi Denis!

Why are you interested in GCB's fate and projects ?

By the way, he has answered to one of your posts here http://paleocru.rawpaleodietforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,29.msg706.html#msg706 and I have unbanned you on Paléocru to give you the possibility to answer.

Dear François 

You did not answer my question !

Why shouldn't I be interested in GCB fate and projects, given my innumerable postings on the subject on a number of internet fora, as you kindly recall  ?

Mind you, I probably wouldn't have asked about GCB 's project ,  if it wasn't for Portugal. I used to live in Lisbon as an expatriate at the time I first heard about the possibility of eating by instinct. So the news of  GCB's newly proclaimed ( ?) interest  in Portugal  is,  to me,  a joyful and  double return to the past. 

Don't keep me waiting too long  for the answer to my question.....

PS  : too kind of you to have "unbanned" me  from participating in this long-forgotten french forum :)  . I'm busy with business matters right now.  So it might take a bit of time before I can reply to my favorite master plagiarist,  purloining in the gardens of edenic thought  ( that's a good one. I  have to remember it  ! )

Desculpe mas esqueci de falar da ilha da Madeira no Atlantico. Si ainda nao foi là, e IMPERATIVO  que voce và.
Là tem frutas desconhecidas no Portugal y otros tambem bem mais gostosos do que no continente.

Aos Acores nunca fui.

Até ja.

Hello BFCP,

a few months ago I thought of going to Lisbon for a while but wasn't sure how to manage my diet there. For example I need a source for raw milk (it kind of saved my life healthwise, but yes I know not everyone is doing good on raw milk) and for grass-fed animal organs, fat and so on. Doing research on such food sources without being able to speak portuguese was pretty hard so I gave up on that plan. So if you don't mind it would be awesome if you could make a list of the food sources you found / you use in and directly around Lisbon. Thank you.
Enjoy the new diet!
