If you buy grassfed directly from the farmer you will get that top quality meat for the same price as the industrial garbage they sell at the supermarket. So, my advice would be not to settle but instead be creative in your sourcing. Cut out the... (more)
For me - I fell in love with Sous Vide cooking when I discovered it. So ideal in so many ways. Seems like there have to be a ton of awesome paleo/primal products out there that haven't been made yet. What would improve your paleo experience?
Hi all!I'm hoping to get lunch ideas for a fishing trip to Canada I'm taking in just under 2 weeks. We pull the boat on shore for lunch so I need lunches that will keep with an icepack and don't need to be reheated. Last year I made a chicken... (more)

On workout days I need to eat around 3600 calories. Getting to 2700 is easy and then I run out of ideas so I just eat enough raw butter/coconut oil/peanut butter/nuts to make up the rest. Does anyone have good ideas how to eat more fat during... (more)

I mash up some frozen bananas to make banana soft serve (sometimes with coconut flakes, some nuts, or some cocoa powder, it's like a blizzard from DQ!) and then top it with some coconut cream, yummmm!
I tend to go to the store and just grab some produce, meat/seafood, and then make a stew with that until I run out. Then go back and do it again with different vegetables/meat/seafood variations. What are your go-to meals?
poached or boiled eggs smashed up in a cup with butter & pepper.... flash fried lambs heart & sauerkraut... canned fish. All great nutrition wise & can be done within 10 mins.

Does anyone have any take along snack ideas other than nuts and fruit? Not that those aren't good, but they're getting stale. What do you usually grab or set out a head of time when you know you're going to be busy and pressed for time? I have... (more)
My local fruit shop was selling guavas and I bought some on impulse. However, now I'm not quite sure how to eat them... Best on their own fresh, or does anyone have a recipe suggestion? I also bought some fennel, another thing I've never used... (more)
Yep! Salad from finely chopped fennel, orange wedges and black olives is superb! Salad dressing made out of orange juice, olive oil and a little mustard to accompany!
Hey guys, I love lacto-fermentation. I love the idea of increasing the digestibility of foods as well as some pro-biotic benefits. So far I've fermented alot of squash, carrots and garlic. I want to expand my horizons. HOWEVER- obvious choices... (more)
I've been looking for good starchy carbohydrates that don't spike insulin, since fruit seems to make me moody. I thought pumpkin might be a good idea, but it's not starchy at all (5 grams of carbs in 100g of pumpkin, and I'm not prepared to eat... (more)
Paul Jaminet talks here about starches as part of a meal having lower GI because of the other foods eaten (fats, fiber, etc.) http://perfecthealthdiet.com/?p=4937
We were given unlimited free access to an unsprayed pear orchard, and picked easily two hundred pounds of bosc pears in les than two hours. Here is what I've made thus far, and still have eight more boxes to process: ~ many jars of pear sauce ~... (more)
Okay, based on Korion's alternative to bone broth question, I am debating trying to add gelatin to my diet. I have some aversion to bone broth. I don't know what it is. This seems like a viable option to me. I just have absolutely no idea what... (more)
The other day folks posted about Red Palm Oil which is a great idea. I was wondering if there are other things folks are doing but perhaps have not posted yet? I would love to hear about them.

Come on. You can tell me. What is a (Paleo/Health-related) idea that you have thought (even briefly) about writing a book about? If not, what is a book that hasn't been written yet that you would like to read? Nobody is going to convince me... (more)
I just really liked those "choose your own adventure books" growing up. Maybe a choose your own diet book. You could see what would happen to you at the end. Lots of illustrations too.
I'm intrigued by the people here who eat zero carbs. Would you give me an example of how a typical day might look for you regarding meals? I have a feeling this would help me break an ongoing plateau, and I'm curious about how you go about it.... (more)

All animal fats are good but it's better for it to come from a ruminant in my opinion. Butter/ghee is also great. If you are going to eat cheese, I suggest Gouda, because gouda is the only cheese with the highest amounts of vitamin k2.
