As paleo becomes more mainstream, we see more people trying to monetize it. Previously it was mainly authors and speakers, then bloggers, and more recently branded "paleo" products. Looks like even the veteran paleo luminary Mark Sisson is pushing... (more)
Hi PaleoHackers -- I am putting together something sort of fun around Paleo products for fitness and for the kitchen. This could be things like Vibrams or cookware or foods. Would love your input.
Just got done with this book and feel like I wasted my money. I was floored by the continual demonization of saturated fats, coupled with what seemed like an embrace of PUFA along with recomendations promoting the use of canola oil and various... (more)

What are you guys thoughts on gluten free products, like chips and pizza? I dont mean as a staple but as an occasional cheat. I follow a pretty strict paleo diet but do indulge in a GF pizza or other product on occasion. Are they better than the... (more)
I thought you guys would have the best list. I realize no one likes the 'industrialization' of paleo, but there have to be some diamonds in the rough out there who are really trying to help bring paleo into the mainstream and make it less hassle.... (more)
I've bought Bubbies pickles and sauerkraut before and enjoy the preservative free/sugar free preservation and very sharp taste. The ingredient list is typically: veggie, seasoning(s) (if any), Artesian well water, salt. Do these products count as... (more)

The term AGEs has come up in some interesting posts, but I don't really know what they are. Can anyone define for a non-scientist? .
With the wintertime and it being so windy and cold outside, I've had to break out my chapstick and lotions. However, now that I've become Paleo, I figured there must be a better product or way to treat my skin. Granted with eating paleo its much... (more)
My parents and inlaws are asking me for Christmas gift ideas so I've been building a wish list these past couple of days. Among the items I'm thinking (I'm going for a broad selection and price range here): A tumbling composter Square foot... (more)
On a lighter note: A coworker of mine stopped me yesterday to tell me she was starting to diet, and was hoping to get some tips from me. Flattering, I thought. So I'd told her the basic tenets of Paleo, and left it at that. She said, "Oh, I... (more)
Since most of us buy/need the same supplements, organic products, etc. I wonder what it would be like to start a Paleo buyers club that could bargain for discounted prices on some of these things. I mean we do seem to recommend the best products... (more)
Hi all After a few years of working under fluorescent lights and in circulated air at an office job I've decided I want to start my own business. My inspiration is despite peoples best efforts to eat a healthy diet, if things are not convenient... (more)
As I was taking a shower this morning, I casually decided to read the ingredient label on the generic hair conditioner I use daily. In addition to the laundry list of complex molecules the likes of which send shivers down the spines of even the... (more)
I am sort of a product junkie when it comes to beauty and makeup. I love makeup, perfume, and all of that good stuff. I've heard that harmful chemicals from all of these things can absorb through your skin? How serious should i be about this, can... (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?
Machaca or Carne Seca can be a great paleo dish, especially prepared from scratch. I would be wary of pre-packaged machaca though as the origin of the (usually) beef is unknown and could contain MSG. You want the ingredients list to say "Beef and... (more)
I would like to know what products you wish were available, both realistic and silly fantasy. How much would you pay to have these available? Me, I wish someone sold something cute for my kid to snack on. Paleo cheddar bunnies or animal crackers... (more)
Hi there, As usual, I have been busier than the proverbial one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest -- but here is your one chance at self-promotion if you are doing a Paleo or Paleo-related business. Let me know about your product or service,... (more)
My favorite show on TV right now is called My Strange Addiction. Screwed up people on the show eat all manners of stuff that nobody should eat like: nail polish, deodorant and plastic cocktail swords. One would think that eating a stick of... (more)
