Elvis: ‘Little girl, go fix me a sandwich, peanut butter and jelly sandwich.’ Now, you know, back when I fixed a sandwich for him, we mixed up the peanut butter and banana together. We didn’t put it [the sandwich] in butter and put it in a skillet. We just put [the mixture] on white bread. But…the other day, this man was fixing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that Elvis liked and they sliced the bananas in thick slices and put it in this butter and cooked it…so he [Elvis] may have started liking that later. But when I was dating him [1957-1962], he liked just a plain old-fashioned mashed banana [sandwich].” – Anita Wood

You’ll be glad to hear that almost all meats are Paleo except of course for the highly-processed meats liked canned meat (spam, corned beef, canned sausages, burgers), hotdogs, and other types of low quality meats. Bacon is also Paleo provided it didn’t go through heavy processing and doesn’t contain additional nitrites/nitrates and sweeteners. Going to a butcher shop where meats are cut on site is your best bet in getting the unprocessed ones.
