Specifically, I’m a bit confused about what to think about in regards to nut consumption. Nuts contain LA, not AA, right? Meanwhile, as far as I know, humans use AA, not LA. And the body can only convert a tiny amount of dietary LA into useable... (more)
I noticed that my Trader Joe's bag of "Pumpkin Seeds In Shell" lists the nutrition data for the "edible portion" of the product. I understand that this means with the shell removed, however, what I can't seem to find out is if the 1/4 cup serving... (more)

Trying to go Paleo and grains were pretty much my thing, I need some ideas for new Grab/On the go snack foods. I'm a college studen so the cheaper/easier the bettter. Especially if you can find items at Publix/Target. But Wholeoods is ok too.
For snacks you don't have to cook, there's actually a lot on the market these days. There are crackers made with nuts/seeds (no grains), kale chips, seaweed snacks, veggie chips, and of course trail mix. I've also tried some bars that have nothing... (more)

I rarely consume the typical orange-fleshed sweet potatoes. The only nutrition data I can find is on the orange-fleshed variety. I know the white-fleshed sweet potatoes wouldn't have any beta carotene, but I was wondering if there are any other... (more)

- Coconut Oil
- Intermittent Fasting
Other than the desirable and frothy texture that resuts in using a blender, what difference does blending coconut oil or just stirring it in do? My goals are to supress my appetite until lunch time for weight loss.
Although I've been doing paleo for a few years, I started giving into convenience and started eating at Whole Foods. This must have been a good thing because I switched to primarily eating vegetables at the salad bar and secondarily eating chicken... (more)

Best type of nut to boost good fats while building lean muscle?
Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.
After hearing about bars made from cricket flour like the Exo or Chapul bars I have really gotten excited about edible insects as a sustainable source of protein and have been researching them a lot (especially since it seems to have been a large... (more)

Organic greens (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc.), liver, grassfed butter, bone broth, meat, wild caught fish - especially salmon. Good quality extra virgin olive oil, red palm oil. What's not paleo: spam!
A quick tip on how to check the quality of your asparagus. Asparagus when fresh have a waxy coating on it. Sometimes when you buy store bought or on the farmers market they can be weeks and weeks old and the sugars break down the waxy skin... (more)
Another one is - if it is REALLY fresh, there will be sap exuding from the bottom of the stalk. If the bottom of the stalk is dry and woody - it is getting on in age!

I have had horrible headaches after eating fresh pork products before. Unsure whether it was because it was conventional or if it was some issue with pork itself. Once a week, however, I eat bacon from a local organic farm and I feel pretty good... (more)
Instead of the sweet tooth thing many people have, I feel that I have a "Savory Tooth" where I can't stop eating excessive amounts of fatty foods. When I began paleo, 2.5 years ago I transitioned from eating nothing but peanut products, canola... (more)
