I'm not a baking/dessert person. If I need sugar, I usually turn to fruits. So for the few times I decide to make a dessert, I try to make them nut-flour-free and baked-free (nut flours oxidize), using some raw honey and fruits. That's usually... (more)
Has anyone heard of this new "Honey Diet"? Essentially it says to have some honey with hot water in the morning and at night...this will help you lose weight and improve physical... (more)
If you take honey with milk every day at morning, definitely you will gain weight, and at the same time if you wanna lose weight daily take honery with hot water, this will definitely give you result. My personal experience.
I hear all kinds of talk about allergies being 'cured' by consuming honey that is native to your area (with the thought that if you consume pollen used to make honey in your area, you will develop some sort of tolerance to the local... (more)
I've heard this too but the way I got rid of my seasonal allergies was to go grain and sugar free for a couple of months. After that I added back white rice, potatoes, and fruits in small amounts.
So, after doing some research I've come to the conclusion that honey is ok in paleo as long as you don't overdo it. It makes sense since our ancestors would have had access to it every once in a while. My question is if we should eat little of it... (more)
This thread is not about "whether honey is paleo" or "how much honey is ok", but about particular types of honey that are healthiest. Does source matter? Linden Honey, buckwheat honey, etc? Why?
Okay.. Sugar. I'm totally baffled by this one and can't figure it out. I know I'm not supposed to have sugar and as far as food goes I'm okay with that. I just use 1 and a half teaspoons in a large cup of tea (I'm in love with earl grey tea and... (more)
Hello all, I consume around 2 tbsp manuka honey a day, divided in 3 portions, mixed with sourcream, berries and almond meal. It is my dessert which is really uplifting, so I need very good reasons to get rid of it. But I am also trying to heal... (more)
Whats the view on honey? If you're wanting to eat Paleo then a few honey gorges per year would seem reasonable. My problem is acne, so I don't know how it differs from plain sugar from a metabolic standpoint. I've seen a lot of anecdotal... (more)
The two are not mutually exclusive- it can be both a paleo superfood AND a sugary indulgence. An unfortunate aspect of Paleo is that it tends to be black and white very often. For instance, eggs are good so we must eat them (in not insignificant... (more)
I've been buying a fair amount raw honey from a nearby farm this summer and using it as an energy source to sustain a lot of of intense physical activity. I'm not really looking to discuss the health benefits or risks of this, but I was curious... (more)
I've seen a lot of delicious-looking recipes that utilize raw honey, but most of them involve baking, which seems counterproductive if you would like to keep it raw (I think it's somewhere around 120 degrees that it pasteurizes, which is surely... (more)
I saw coconut sugar at the store yesterday and was wondering what everyone's thoughts on this were? I assume it's not paleo because it reminds me of honey...but I am just curious. I try to limit my carbs to vegetables and fruit. I use stevia in... (more)
This question was sort of asked in another post but I don't think I got the answer. http://paleohacks.com/questions/102813/does-honey-kill-the-good-bacteria-too#axzz1pAkMy4sM (more)
I've been reading about sugar lately and how it is composed of both fructose and glucose in different quantites depending on the type of sugar. The main difference between the two ingredients is that glucose is metabolized by every cell in the... (more)
Raw sugar probably contains allergens and is pretty high in iron. White sugar is pure and safe in the right context(nutrient rich diet). Fructose is good for you and better to get from fruit.
Honey is often said to kill bacteria, for example manuka honey fights H. Pylori in our digestive tract. But does it harm the good bacteria in our gut (regular honey, not necessarily manuka)? What about when I mix honey with a probiotic yogurt or... (more)
I apologize if this has been asked before but I am confused about raw honey vs honey in the supermarkets. Is it that the ones in the stores are pasteurized? How exactly are they different and am I wasting my money on store bought honey.
Honey at the grocery, unless stated it's "raw" is pasteurized so it will be clear and golden. Raw honey is off-white and cloudy. Definitely buy local if you can, any greenmarket should be able to hook you up, support your farmer :) I know that... (more)
I need a probiotic yoghurt for my gut issues, so I make my own lactose-free probiotic goat yoghurt (fermented for 24 hours, I tolerate goat dairy better). The problem with lactose-free goat yoghurt is that it's very bitter (more so than cow... (more)
Anyone tried consuming bee pollen or raw honey on a regular basis and notice and improvements? There are a lot of claims out there (e.g., http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/bee.htm) and I'd like to hear some experiences. (more)
I do not eat raw honey every day but sometimes I will have two cups of coffee in the morning (only once or twice a week, normally I only have water or plain green tea) and I will sweeten it with raw honey (one teaspoon each cup) together with... (more)
I consume about 2-3 teaspoons of honey in my coffee each morning. I'm sure coffee isn't paleo but cut me some slack...I'm new. It's raw, unheated and unfiltered honey. I realize honey is mostly fructose but is it unhealthful? It is the only... (more)
I put it all in a bowl and mixed it with the back of a spoon. It was nice and bitter, a little sweet and creamy and salty. My girlfriend thinks I'm nuts. But it was SO good! How do I tell her that I'm not killing myself with the butter? Other... (more)
I make that for a work snack on third shift(we don't get real breaks or lunches,and sometimes you just have to quickly eat something in between customers).Melt it all together,freeze on wax paper.Sometimes I put tahini on it, too.
Lately i've been craving sugar like crazy and instead of going for crap foods i decided to get me some honey (the regular stuff you find at supermarkets). The problem is, once i start eating it, it's as if someone is forcing me to eat it, i simply... (more)
The previous post on honey got me thinking about this: If sugar is evil, agave nectar is the devil, honey should be avoided, artificial sweeteners are chemical poison and fruit is a big "no-no" then what in the world do experienced paleo dieters... (more)
I've seen the questions about honey and agave. I know we've discussed stevia and truvia. So what about blackstrap molasses and maple syrup? Are they better or worse than honey? Here's some info about blackstrap molasses: The third boiling... (more)
This is another honey related question. Does anyone know about 'Manuka' honey? Apparently manuka honey with a high UMF is very good for when you are sick. It originates in New Zealand. Any thoughts? I have been quite sick for a couple of weeks... (more)
Forgive me if this has been asked somewhere here already, but what role does honey and hive products (bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis) play in the paleo diet? I have a few questions to ask about this elusive nectar. It is called the perfect... (more)
