mmmmm msg. They put flour and sugar in sauces and soups without telling you, too. And soy, soy everywhere. I wouldn't even try, honestly.
I have been reading about how Paleo or Whole 30 has helped some folks control their diabetes (be it Type 1 or 2). Now, mine is a slightly different case. I'm a 26-year-old Malay Singaporean woman. I only discovered the Paleo way of eating about... (more)

I am sooooooo tired of the paleo 'comfort food' approach and am getting burned out on th see types of receipts. I love the freshness of some Asian meals, but don't know at all how to cook them(being from the south). Are there any receipt books... (more)

I stopped into a big Asian market here in NYC today. Quite the spectacle, very impressive. The problem is that a huge amount of the merchandise has ingredients that are not Paleo compatible. I thought there would be a large variety of seaweed and... (more)
I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups. I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't... (more)
