I noticed a lot of "Paleo friendly" recipes use both these ingredients. Coconut oil is almost entirely saturated fat. Lets say you add something like mayple syrup and honey to your recipe. Do you think that this could be harmful? Especially in... (more)

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.

My wife's birthday is coming up in a few days & she wants a special treat. She loves Resse's Peanut Butter Cups, but since adopting the paleo lifestyle and eating habits, we have dropped these manufactured sweets from our diet and adventured... (more)
if you have a food processor, you can also make your own with coconut flakes! super cheap, though it takes a while and never seems to reach quite the same smooth consistency as the store-bought coconut butter.
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.

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)
What's something delicious I can make? Looking for something to replace my night time casein and heavy cream shake... that has been ditched so I can more align myself with paleo nutrition.
My 26th birthday is next week and I want to make dessert, dang it! Now, normally i'd probably take this opportunity to make one my most favorite (SAD) desserts: German chocolate cake or homemade chocolate pie; however, I am just coming off my... (more)
I'm a college student with a mandatory 10 meals a week to spend in the cafeteria. I fast through breakfast and typically eat lunch and dinner on weekdays there. The cafeteria options are fairly decent as college goes. I can get roast turkey,... (more)
Uhh.. yes. A foie gras macaron. Actually, you can do a lot with foie - probably the best route if you want to make something on the sweet end that involves meat. Actually, if you want to play without spending a bunch of dough, sausage that 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 alergic to nuts and have tolerance issues with coconut and chocolate. Any thoughts for Paleo dessert recipes without nuts, coconut or chocolate?
Baked apples with cinnamon and honey (some cranberries are good too) Also, fresh figs..they remind me of fig newtons from my prepaleo days I'm sure others have good ideas but since I don't eat dairy that's all I got :D
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)

I seen a infomercial on this machine that you can put frozen fruit into and it come out like ice cream. Its called the yonanas machine(www.yonanas.com) and I know it looks corny but just wondering if anyone has used this machine and if it works... (more)
There's a thread here that started the conversation a bit, but it also dealt with fruits (bananas) and honey as potential additions. Here's the deal: I'm in a stretch of very low carbing for weight loss. Animal proteins, eggs, Kerrygold, coconut... (more)
Coconut milk ice cream is actually quite flavorful and creamy on its own, without added sugars. I put an entire can of full-fat in there, and the machine does the rest. :)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
