What are some good sources of folate other than leafy greens? Best I can find so far is chicken liver (or duck or other foul). Nice, because I wanted a good excuse to opt for chicken liver over beef liver now and then. I love them both. I... (more)
So I'm eating salads again and would like to know what sort of easy, quick, relatively painless yet delectable and nutritious salads you guys like to prepare. Fire off! And hey: if you want to offer a complicated, convoluted salad recipe I... (more)
I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
Are Lima beans paleo? If yes, should they need to be organic?
I've noticed that when I drink my smoothie too consistently I feel weak, my muscles are tired and I generally feel fatigued. In my Vitamix I put in Swiss Chard, carrots, burdock, blueberries, parsley, beets, ginger, bananas, maca and ashwaganda.... (more)
I was recently looking at a post about the types of greens people eat and how much and someone answered that they have removed leafy greens from their diet since it is undigestable due to the fibers or something... i'd like to learn more, but... (more)
I've never liked vegetables a whole lot, but recently I've included more greens, like lettuce on top of my dairy and meat with nice results. Meat and dairy by themselves never worked too great for me In bulk, but adding salad greens on top seems... (more)
I eat a big ass salad almost every day with the base being baby spring mix (kale, spinach, arugula, and more) and generally top it off with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, onions, walnuts, pine nuts, sliced almonds, and some form... (more)
First heard about it from Tim Ferris, but some other folks on podcasts I listen to have also mentioned. Just curious to know if anyone can report any benefits before I consider it. Increased energy? Increased fat loss? Better sleep? etc... (more)
Stats: 31, 262 lbs, female Been paleo since end of July, when I first started, I couldn't get enough greens. Like kale, mustard greens and turnip greens and the like. Even before then I loved them. Suddenly I can't eat them without wanting to... (more)
I realize in the large scheme of things, any lettuce I eat probably doesn't have a huge effect on much. But I'm wondering what kind of lettuce is most popular amongst paleo types. I like all kinds of lettuce, so I purchase based on function: I buy... (more)
I think a lot of people would answer leafy greens like spinach or kale or broccoli or something. But if you don't care about carbs and want something that doesn't taste like grass, I eat oven-baked sweet potatoes with Kerrygold butter almost every... (more)
I was reading: http://www.radiancenutrition.com/2011/08/19/put-down-that-kale-smoothie-why-you-should-cook-your-food/ And it made the point that cooking veggies makes them more bio available because: "Destruction of cell walls in vegetables... (more)
Hey, I like and live the Paleo Nutrition mostly. I am a very active person and I am doing CrossFit and or SEALFIT (hard PT) everyday. As I read Tim Ferris "The 4 hour Body" I heard the first time of "Athletic Greens". Ferris recommends... (more)
Just got a bunch of mustard greens from my CSA share today, and I'm not exactly sure what the best paleo-friendly way to eat them would be. Any ideas? Thanks!
sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.
I just got some collard greens from the farmers market and am looking for the best way to cook them! My sister is very skeptical of greens and I want to make something that will prove to her that they can be delicious!
4 slices of bacon chopped, cook in large frying pan until crisp. Add greens in bunches to wilt down. When all the greens are in add 2 TBSP vinegar (pref. raw) and two cups chicken broth. Simmer 15-20 mins. Salt to taste :)
The recipe I have for roasting beets has far more sugar than I realized. I need a new recipe. Preferably fast, easy, and picky-eater friendly. Bonus points for incorporating the greens. Any way to shred/slice them and then sautee?
Roast them in a little coconut oil, and when they're done toss them in fresh orange juice (blood oranges work wonderfully), a little orange zest, and salt and serve them on a bed of belgian endive with a sprinkling of walnuts.
Hi, I have been eating primal/paleo for about six months now. I started out eating lots of green, non starchy vegetables, but I never found a way that I liked them and most things like kale, spinach and brocolli send me into gastro-intestinal... (more)
If your meat is grass-fed and you're including organs from time to time, I don't think you really need anything else. No such thing as an essential fruit or vegetable in my opinion.
I am on day 4 of low carb Paleo with no dairy (God I miss butter). I've had maybe one serving of cooked chard twice and am not digesting it very well. At the risk of TMI, it's just coming out pretty much the same way it went in. I know that my... (more)
As I'm getting ready to plant my heat loving greens for the short summer in the Phoenix area, I noticed what wild greens grow in my garden during the winter. I have a good amount of chickweed growing already. Actually it's about to set seed soon.... (more)
I have been on an all-meat diet for over a year, and I'm very happy with it. I saw drastic health improvements even over a very low carb diet. My doctor is mostly happy with it, but he often urges me to eat some non-starchy green vegetables, as... (more)
Biochemist Mat Lalonde makes the argument that pretty much every vegetable contains some kind of toxin as a protective mechanism (since plants cannot defend themselves by running away or fighting). He recommends rotating a wide variety of veggies... (more)
How do you eat raw milk cheese? Do you melt, mix, cut it? Or just bite of the cheese cake? Do you have special herbs and greens for eating with cheese? Third...Do you think its god to eat cheese and meat together? Because its not Kosher. (more)
