I have a wheat intolerance, and apparently I cross react with casein dairy protein in cheese. I didn't realize until today that there are cheese made from whey, thus avoiding the casein. My question is which whey cheeses can be melted and... (more)
We made a very nice pizza with grated cauliflower mixed up with egg to make the base, I'm sure you could find the recipe on google. Don't know about the whey cheeses though, try it and let us know how it goes!
So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (more)
So I've been a cheese and carb-lover my entire life. Going Paleo is for me currently, not just a diet (I need to lose about 50 pounds) but it's a way to help me maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life. I've been in the process of going... (more)
I'm constantly getting mixed messages about milk and dairy. Some seem to think anything from whole milk to gouda is acceptable, others insist that dairy is evil and won't even touch butter... Now butter... isn't that taking it a little far? Who... (more)
Hi all, I know cheese and dairy in general are a gray area in Paleo. However, should you decide for its consumption, what types of cheese are in terms of macros the most interesting? I am aware its best to have cheese made from raw, full-fat... (more)
So I understand the purpose for some people staying away from dairy foods due to them being lactose intolerant. But what if one isn't lactose intolerant and has a pastured grass fed dairy farm close by where the cows are hormone free and the milk,... (more)
I bought some unpasteurized feta in a can about three months ago. I was told it would last a very long time if kept in its original liquid. I took it out and noticed the top of the can was bulging, and some of the edges on the outside were rusty... (more)
I was told or read a long time ago that you are not supposed to eat anything from bulging cans. I would personally throw it all out. Better to waste a few bucks then to require a hospital visit, which would cost a lot more. Just IMHO.
I can't stop snacking on several hundred calories worth on cacao a day. Specifically, I consume lots of chocolate cheese. (I melt the bakers chocolate in a fondue set and then pour it over a wheel of Brie cheese.) Sometime I layer it on cheddar... (more)
Are you gaining weight? If not, rock on. Cheese and unsweetened chocolate aren't the types of foods associated with deleterious metabolic outcomes.
So, I've always been open to eating avocados, nuts, etc...but the idea of eating lots of animal fats, full-fat dairy (I tolerate it digestively), and butter just seems crazy to me! For example I use caloriecount, and if I eat full-fat cheese, I... (more)
So...I found a recipe for Carrot Green (aka Carrot Top) pesto that I REALLY want to try making because I really want to try using my carrot greens. However, all the recipes that I have found use parmesan cheese (as a traditional pesto would). As... (more)
I just started my second batch of sauerkraut (so I had a starter batch) and let it to ferment for a while. When it started, all the cabbage was submerged but I checked it today (I estimate about 4-5 days since it started) and not only was the top... (more)
It seems like the paleo "purist" cheese you can get.
I have developed a strange addiction to Camembert. It is made from pasteurized milk (bad) but from French cows (A1) but not grass-fed (bad again). This is my only vice and I am having a hard time breaking this addiction. Please tell me... (more)
I tried searching this site as well as Google but couldn't find what I was looking for. Dairy doesn't seem to bother me so I had a question about cheese. A vendor at my local farmers market sells a Raw Milk Cheddar and an Aged Sharp Cheddar (Aged... (more)
I'd go with the aged cheese as it contains lots of K2.
Do you British guys/gals know any good online sources of unpasteurized cheese that deliver within UK? I tried the 2 cheeses on red23 which were nice but can't find much else through google, would like a bit of variety I did notice the pre grated... (more)
Sainsbury and Tesco both sell unpasteurised cheese (both do cheddars from Canada, if I recall correctly, and Sainsburys has some other unpasteurised french cheeses.
Recently I bought some grass fed new zealand cheese from trader joes, and was eating some of the block I bought, over a course of three days. All three of those days though, I overate on overall calories A LOT, somewhat-binge 2500-3000 calorie... (more)
Someone bought me bocconcini and the ingredients are "pasteurized milk, microbial enzyme, bacterial culture. Packaged in water with potassium sorbate" I know pasteurized milk and milk is bad yadda yadda, but can I make it somewhat better by... (more)
I am new to Paleo, but have done low carb for many years (and have fallen off several times because let's face it, LC just gets boring after awhile). A Paleo approach seems like a much more sustainable lifestyle and one that I can maintain since... (more)
Personally if you don't have an issue with dairy then cheese should be fine. I get the desire sometimes I feel like I need the good bacteria and enzymes from cheese so I too go with a goat cheese or goat yoghurt or find some really good artisan... (more)
I have been getting paleo diet delivery from The Primal Plan, and have been pretty much eating 100% paleo. I am now craving some cheese on my eggs in the morning. I always used to add a sharp cheddar because it was my fav . Is there a different... (more)
Blue cheese wasn't high on my list - sophisticated taste, but too bitter. Recently I put aside a piece of the pasteurised stuff, wrapped in cellophane, and accidentally left it for a few days at room temp. When I discovered the cheese it was... (more)
Hello Everyone, I am fairly new to Paleo and would love if you could recommend cheese and butter types/brands that are Paleo friendly? I shop at Whole Foods but frequent Trader Joe's when I get the opportunity. Additionally, what would you say... (more)
I was wondering if blue cheeses are perhaps harmful to gut bacteria by nature of their molds or if the amount is so small that it doesn't matter.
I have been paleo for four weeks now and have avoided all kinds of cheese thinking it is a big no no But the more i read and the millions of recipies on the internet include cheese. Some books include cheese and some say avoid all dairy. I am so... (more)
