I'm all about whole food snacks for on the go: boiled eggs, home made jerky, fruits, avocados etc etc. I am also a huge believer that you should consume mostly (if not all) whole foods everyday in order to obtain and maintain your best possible... (more)
To keep food on hand for my sick family member I was thinking of taking cooked bone-in chicken pieces and freezing them in small batches so they could be reheated as needed. Does anyone do this and if so is there any trick to keeping things tasty... (more)
I always use 3 sheets of plastic wraps,indivually wrapping 3 times and then put in a freezer bag squeezing out the air, will prevent freezer burn and keep fresher longer, make each wrapping tight.
I'm on day 11 of the whole 30, and doing great, feeling great, not really craving anything, etc. Then yesterday I was famished on the way home from work, popped in the supermarket near my bus stop and made an awesome vs. dangerous discovery. I... (more)
The canola/safflower/sunflower/frankenstein n-6 oil is way less than optimal, but should you desire to eat sweet potato/parsnip/batata/taro/yucca chips, why not try making them yourself at home? It's really easy, I promise.
Hi all. I started eating paleo three weeks ago and I love it. The biggest benefits are that I have a ton of energy, I'm sleeping well, and my chronic "intestinal distress" has disappeared. I don't feel deprived at all and have no cravings. ... (more)
I hope I'm not alone in having some regular go-to items that, while not 100% paleo to 5 decimal places, are in the spirit of healthy paleo foods. My latest find has been frozen fire roasted peppers and onions from Trader Joes. I dump a cup or so... (more)
Newbie here ... 1st answer ever! Wholly Guacamole 100-calorie packs are the bomb. No more making a batch of guacamole and having part of it start turning brown in the fridge.
Setting aside for now the usual "Why don't you just make your own?" argument, are there any commercially available Indian condiments/simmering sauces that are paleo-friendly? I'd like to throw some leftover pieces of chicken into some masala (or... (more)
I spend a lot of time hiking in the woods. In my day pack, I carry a few snack bars in case I ever get stuck and have to stay in the forest overnight. All fine, except that the bars I've been using are very high carb low-fat things, and no longer... (more)
Obviously I'm wary about eating anything prepacked/preserved, but this was like two bucks and could come in handy during dire straits. Tyson Naturally Hickory Smoked Bacon - Ready to Serve! Fully Cooked! I know it's from an industrialized, sad,... (more)
You find yourself ill-prepared and ravenously hungry. You spontaneously remember/discover some vending machines nearby. What three vending machine selections would you make? Intermittent fasting is off the table for the purposes of this question... (more)
I actually really like liver and other offal (tripe, kidneys, brain, etc), but it's a tough sell for my family (I'm the main cook). I can convince them to have it every now and then, but only for dinner, only infrequently, and only if I buy and... (more)
I have been grain free for a while now and switched over to the Paleo lifestyle last month. "Convenience foods" pretty much don't exist for me - until I discovered Lara Bars a couple of weeks ago. I have been eating a lot of them. I have 2 small... (more)
I eat them. They have like three to four ingredients max. Gluten free and 100% natural, can't see why they wouldn't be paleo. I get them at Sam's in a 18 pack box. Comes out a good bit cheaper then $1 a piece.
Possible Duplicate: quick meals that can be transported My job is a bit hectic, and differs from your average American -- I work onboard Amtrak trains as the (faux) bartender in the cafe car...If you have been on a train before, you have... (more)
I'm curious if there is something that you've found yourself wishing you had to make Paleo decisions or questions or implementation or conversations easier to handle. Makes your Paleo LIFE just a little less of a hassle. I don't want to put in... (more)
A sustainable family farm with an orchard, cows, goats, chickens, badass garden, root cellar, maybe a trout stream nearby, no bills, no need to work outside of the home/farm, low stress.. that would be nice.
If you do use a microwave (setting aside for the moment the issue of "whether" you should microwave at all, which is addressed in part here), are there practical benefits to microwaving at lower power settings? Or is full power at a short time... (more)
I am just thinking of when I get a cup of coffee on the road etc and there is no coconut milk available. I usually get tea instead but sometimes you just want your coffee!! I looked online and a lot of these powdered coconut milk have milk... (more)
yea i saw it in my local health food store. was thinking it would be good to make coconut milk chocolate, in place of the powdered milk found in regular milk chocolate.
I am lucky where I work they have an all organic/pastured (mostly) based cafeteria. It is expensive so I keep food frozen or refrigerated here at work. In any case, I get a lot of looks from people when they see me eating???then they come up and... (more)
i am doing some research into paleo products that would be popular and a little bit different from the existing snack products on the market. i've asked the question about paleo products you would like to see on the shelf but would also... (more)
