But Is It Paleo Questions
Dried beans have been dated to at least 7500BC. I am not bothered by them as some are. I doubt that many get to 100% Paleo - and I presume it’s impossible since so many foods are not clearly Paleo or not Paleo. SO - does anyone see any real harm... (more)
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)
Over the past 2-3 years, I have noticed I have developed more and more food sensitivities. It manifests itself with acne. up to a year ago, I was clear and really didn't have to pay attention to what I ate as long as it was paleo. now: the... (more)
I came across this article about Choffy, in which cocoa beans are treated and brewed in the same way as coffee beans. The website has a whole bunch about all its great effects, who knows what is really true, and I was wondering if anyone has any... (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)
Living as a college student in India with no options for choosing my meals. Given the option of eating farmed chicken vs no chicken (only eggs(farmed)) ? What is better? Almost everyone I know is either vegetarian or eats chicken only once a week.... (more)
So I have this vice--spry chewing gum. When I first made the switch to primal/paleo eating habits I used regular sugar free gum (aspartame overload!) to help deal with the sugar cravings I was having after removing all of the heavy carbs, sweets... (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.
Just wondering how everyone customizes their experience. For example, I believe soy lecithin to be an unparalleled source of choline, so I add a serving a day. Also, I'm pretty sure cavemen didn't have Sri Racha, but I darned sure do. Anyone... (more)
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 found myself puzzled by the majority of responses in a recent question on controlling anxiety and have to ask: How is it "paleo" to be prescribing magnesium and other supplementation to address anxiety? [Incidentally there is only... (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'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)
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.
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)
The biochemical importance of magnesium has been already well-described. Many here are familiar with the difficulties of getting sufficient magnesium from natural sources (i.e. not supplements). That of course makes me wonder how it is that our... (more)
