Hey I just had a fantastic revelation paleo churros! Now I know this may sound weird to some people but give my idea a try. Go out get a bag of plain chicharrones, salted. Next get a bowl and mix some honey with a fair amount of cinnamon. Dip... (more)
are chicharrones paleo? as far as I know they're one of the most popular Mexican snacks and most likely responsible for the alarming diabetes and obesity rates that have nearly tripled for Mexico in the last decades.
I love paleo because I can indulge in my favorite food, animals! But I have to admit I miss fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. So, the question is what is your ultimate paleo dessert recipe mine is: One banana, two tablespoons of... (more)
So, I have become really reminiscent lately of my childhood food. As the journey continues of getting my parents to do paleo, I'd like to have them maybe be more lenient. Egyptian food is a staple for us, and it's been really easy to still eat the... (more)

Just out of curiousity. When I first started paleo, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit, I was making paleo bread, cookies, muffins etc. at least 3x a week. Now I have learned a lot and that number is down to once every 2 or 3 weeks. its fun to make... (more)
I only eat treats!!! I had 3 hard eggs with Sri Racha today... then I had 8oz chuck roast with 2 kale leaves sauteed in ghee!!! What a treat! It's all point of view, and you can own it.

Someone mentioned raising carbs from VLC to LC for lethargy. It worked. Vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner with protein. Wanted a dessert so had a poached pear with a little cream, 1 Tbl nuts, cinnamon, raw cacao powder, and 1 Tbl. Dakota... (more)
I lost 40 lbs eating chocolate regularly. Sure didn't stop me! Context is also key, though. Eating dark chocolate kept me from eating larger portions of worse things. YMMV.
Anybody here ever try some of the baby food options? I was going down the isle and noticed some of the fruit ones are just the fruit no water or other additives. Thinking of things to add to my lunches as a treat from time to time. What do you... (more)

These might be all I know, have fun! Zabaione aka sabayon, zabajone, zabaglione Puddings. I use a beaten egg to thicken pudding, just keep an eye on the mixture whisking the whole time so the egg doesn't scramble. Can you eat rice? Ginger... (more)

I am about 3 weeks into a Paleo-ish diet that I've been placed on ( very willingly) by my naturopath. I have researched and dabbled with Paleo in the past, but this is the first time I've actually made the plunge. I have been having some... (more)
