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)
I've read a couple of times that vegetables actually increase intestinal permeability because they're insoluble or something. Here's a passage I recently found on this website: "Not to mention everytime you eat a plant food, either the... (more)
I hear more and more that kale is best NOT eaten raw - yet many paleo follwers (present company included) have raw kale in a smoothie daily. Please help me understand if this is not in my best interest.... or if I should cook the kale... (more)
I've switched my dog and cat over to an all raw diet of meat, bone, vegetable and fruit and I've never seen more healthy animals in my life. I've always had at least one dog since childhood. Every dog I've ever had (usually large dogs) pass away... (more)
Sean 23, I understand your stance and your passion, but be careful with how your phrase your comments.... Japanese and Polynesians eat raw fish. Inuits eat raw meat. They were human last time I looked.
I recently started eating raw beef, and I'm just wondering if anyone can relate to a recent experience of mine... I've found that I've lost the taste for cooked meat, even rare, entirely. I don't like it anymore. I don't like the way cooked meat... (more)
What has more benefits; fermented raw milk, raw kefir or yogurt? Please share your experience with either. Of course from grass fed animals and of any species.

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'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've become interested in raw meat after hearing about the benefits of enzymes and possibly the way vitamin B6 is destroyed in cooking. I get absolutely no raw animal foods in my diet, since I can't eat dairy or eggs I would have to eat raw... (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)
