But Is It Paleo Questions
My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?
Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)
Hi there, This may seem pernickety but just want to check what you all think of this product: Sunita Organic Lemon Juice I use lemon an awful lot in recipes, drinks and dressings, and I think it would work out cheaper/more convenient to buy... (more)
I still purchase bottled ReaLemon lemon juice from time to time to keep on-hand (they had jugs of it on sale at Costco last time i needed any and it was cheaper than buying a pile of lemons) for cooking and splashing into water or tea. I somehow... (more)
If you don't have a sulphite sensitivity (and in truth, it's a minority who do), then polish off the bottle. If the idea bothers you, don't buy it again. Sulphite sensitivity isn't widespread.
Since it's winter, I miss hot cups of tea every morning. Since going paleo I've stopped drinking milk altogether because we can only get homogenized and pasteurized here. My mum won't buy raw grassfed because it's too expensive. I do miss tea. I... (more)
I was introduced to paleo from my friend a couple weeks back, and he explained it to me as basically just eliminating (or severely limiting) consumption of grains, legumes, and beans (foods that are "neolithic") and focusing on fruits, vegetables,... (more)
Has anyone ever tried this? I loooove duck, but haven't been able to find any around here at a reasonable price. I was hoping this could be a reasonable choice for fat. Yes, I know it's preferable to render my own, but I'd like thoughts on this... (more)
I'm not a hater and grew up a totally metabolically deranged fat kid. It took a long time of persistence and borderline OCD to overcome it I think. But I have to wonder if some of the so called "Paleo" recommendations to slash carbs or even some... (more)
Have you guys seen this new Paleobread stuff you can order (paleobread.com)? It looks pretty solid to me. No funky ingredients or anything in the coconut one. I was about to go order a bunch of the coconut bread one when all of a sudden I felt... (more)
I add this to my breakfast most mornings. I'm curious to its Paleo integrity. Made from Bio-Fermented Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice Non-GMO Hypo-Allergenic Complete Amino-Acid Profile OK, I love the stuff. It tastes great and I feel pretty... (more)
I am seeing Green Coffee Bean extract advertised everywhere now (including Starbucks.) It apparently is some sort of fat burner or something. Does anyone know what this stuff exactly is? Is it Paleo?
When evaluating research for what you eat, do you focus on short term studies and/or what the substance does to small parts of the body, or long term studies that compare intakes with mortality or health? Examples: high fat dairy intake (whole... (more)
I've read his 4-hour workweek and 4-hour body and am eagerly anticipating his 4-hour chef. I found his books fascinating and full of surprisingly useful information with credible scientific evidence. I've also met him and consider him to be... (more)
Wasnt the Honey Badger eating rice crispies a while back and copping lots of flack for doing so?
Paleo is a wonderful notion - to emphasise the dietary practices that our bodies, due to evolution, are best suited to. This principle seems to work particularly well when compared with diet plans that are extremely unsuited to the expectations... (more)
For those unfamiliar (as I was): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_fryer If you are going to eat chips Vacuum Fried seem to be the way to go. Less fat and that fat is there should be better due to lower temperature cooking (also less... (more)
I'm watching a few videos from Paleo FX and trying to bring my 80/20 rule to more of a 90/10 rule [and beyond!]. I can't help but notice a huge sponsor in the backgrounds of these videos: Quest Bars. I'm a huge fan/addict of the protein and... (more)
I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.
My husband and I have been following a Paleo based diet for about a year and a half. We are Paleo about 85-90% of the time. Our house is Paleo friendly and we usually go non-Paleo when we eat out. I see a lot of people on this site talking about... (more)
Is there a list somewhere of seed oils? I keep reading on Paleo sites that seed oils shouldn't be used. What does this include? I'm assuming like soybean, etc. I also know that, obviously, seed oils come from seeds, but I'm looking for further... (more)
So I've been wondering are the "Green Machine" drinks by Naked Juice Paleo? From what I can tell, they're only fruit and veggie juice. I wasn't sure how "Paleo" these are, or if a home-made comparable drink would be. I'm mostly unsure, just... (more)
So, while grocery shopping yesterday, my boyfriend and I were looking at an uncured spiral cut ham from Trader Joes. I'm assuming this, while nitrate/nitrite free, is not paleo because it contains sugar. The ingredients were: Ham, Water,... (more)
I've just started eating Paleo, and I have a question. Are Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce Paleo? I'm thinking no, because the ingredients are: chipotle peppers, tomato puree, paprika, sugar, salt, onions, sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves... (more)
That's La Morena, right? I think that's the only one I've seen with sesame oil. Anyway, I always have a decanted can in a jar in the fridge. I use both the puree and chopping up the chili as an enhancer to salad dressings and sauces, soup,... (more)
Hey guys i am am new at this it's been bout 1 month and i am still trying to stick to the diet as i have alot of allergies and digestive problesm but i have a hens & wedding coming up in in next two weeks and i am worried with the finger food... (more)
It's a healthier way of eating...not a cult. yes, take a night off, a day off, or a weekend off... then start right back where you left off. You'll be fine. Just don't do it OFTEN. :)
