Maybe I shouldn't be on this site anymore :P But seriously, I'd been a paleo enthusiast for around a year (I was already gluten free as I'm allergic to it -as well as corn-), and while I noticed many health benefits (decrease in bipolar symptoms... (more)
I guess fermentation is a sort of non heat based form of cooking. Heat eliminates toxic antinutrients and so do bacteria, so would bacterial fermentation be enough to convert toxic raw beans into a digestable food?
Hi everyone! I was just wondering, does anyone have any info the difference (nutritionwise) between fresh vs fermented wheatgrass. There is no info on google that I could find, just a whole load of supplement companies advertising the fermented... (more)

Recently i was listening to Carl Lanore's Superhuman Radio show and both he and one of his guests mentioned regular consumption of raw beef, if in somewhat minor amounts. They both were talking about ground beef, and yes the stipulation was that... (more)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoK_QdVve9EKristina really makes me feel like physic acid and omega 6 ratios and being afraid of nuts is crazy. She is GLOWING! LOOK AT HER! How come she can eat so many nuts, phytic acid, no animal fats and be so... (more)
Social network sites are awash with people supporting the notion that raw food is alive & our bodies thrive on it but cooked food is dead & has many many negative effects on the body, it's put forward by many of the proponents as a gospel... (more)
I love sushi, and also when I eat steak I cannot get it rare enough. I only cook it because I cannot risk getting sick or any type of parasite. I am about over worried about parasites perhaps because my father got them while working overseas and... (more)
I've been drinking a kale smoothie every morning for a few weeks and it's been great so far! They contain plenty of vitamins/minerals/fats, but I'm almost completely lacking protein. For the past few days, I've been scrambling up 3 duck eggs from... (more)
I put two or three raw chicken egg yolks in my kale smoothie every morning and have for years. I get the eggs from a neighbor and have never had a problem. Just make sure the shells are clean before you crack them.
I found some organic raw grassfed kefir at my local Sprouts, I was looking forward to trying it, and when I did try it just now, it tastes yeasty and disgusting. Is this normal for raw kefir, or has it expired? I'm thinking of getting my money back (more)
I've heard about the whole avidin/biotin thing but i still tend to eat mine whole, it just seems more intuitive to eat them whole, but thats all im basing it off really, i don't seem to have any issues & have known people who swear by eating... (more)
I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find the answer using the search. If raw milk contains lactase and lactose, wouldn't the lactase just digest the lactose? Yet when I look at the nutrition label on raw milk, one cup has 12g of... (more)
I'm not a fan of smoothies but i would have one every now & then for nutritions sake, i don't eat a lot of salad but i do eat veggies...just not enough in my opinion. On the raw side of things i don't eat a lot at all apart from a bit of... (more)
I checked out Denise Minger's daily menu (thanks to Pecan) and it seems that she eats mostly raw vegetables and fruits (as well as raw fish, shellfish and occasionally meat). Now, it is very interesting, but I find that raw vegetables agree with... (more)
After making butter out of the cream from my raw milk, what can I do with the leftover skim milk? It's pretty gross by itself without the fat, so I usually end up just letting our cats drink it. It's too expensive to keep doing this, but I LOVE... (more)
Recently I've been experimenting with some ratio adjustments since struggling with hunger, bringing my fat intake to 60% of my total calories, carbs at 25-30%, and protein at around 15%, and feel BETTER THAN EVER. My digestion was doing perfectly... (more)
I have seen it contended that, because unsaturated fats tend to go rancid easier, and that since a lot of nuts can be high in unsaturated fats, that they can oxidize, or go rancid, when roasted. What kind of nuts do you like to eat?
So heres the run down: I have hashimotos, and am in the process of treating it w/ ldn and paleo + raw dairy. I just introduced raw milk to my diet. I drank processed milk for the first 22 years of my life, and have been paleo for over a year. Im... (more)
I live in Westchester County New York and want to source raw milk. New york state law forbids farms to transport unpasteurized milk. Does anyone know of a local dairy farm that sells raw milk?
I heard that if you store raw meat below 35 degrees fahrenheit, that it can last for weeks in the refrigerator without spoiling and actually the enzymatic action will increase over time. I realize that conventional wisdom and the USDA give a... (more)
