I was reading an article on Mark's Daily Apple yesterday about oats. Everything was sounding very familiar and near the end I saw a reference to PaleoHacks. I clicked the link and BAM! It was my oatmeal post here!! He used my recipe to make baked... (more)
Any recommendations for food that will still be good near the end of a 24-hour bus trip? Preferably something delicious, fat/protein-dense stuff. I contemplate bringing hot soup/broth in a thermos, but that will only stay warm for a limited time.... (more)
Pemmican (dried meat mixed with rendered animal fat) is the ultimate travel food because: It's almost nutritionally complete. It has more calories for its weight than any other paleo food except pure fat (but pure fat isn't nutritionally... (more)
My poor mom is hobbling around with a broken ankle, so I'm going to make my parents dinner this Saturday. My dad eats pretty low-carb and paleo-ish, and we'd love for mom to get on board- she just got put on cholesterol and BP meds, smokes, has... (more)
We've got a bunch of family birthdays coming up and I'm looking for a good nut-free recipe for Paleo Brownies. We have coconut flour and lots of it, and our son has a nut allergy which doesn't play nicely with most of the paleo baked dessert... (more)
I bought a fancy juicer a few months before I discovered paleo. Now obviously I'm not going to be making any sugar bombs with it, but I'd like to have it do more than just gather dust. This morning I made cucumber/celery/spinach/parsley/lemon... (more)
It came to me today that an old favorite, wilted spinach, would be a good paleo meal--it has spinach (duh), bacon, eggs as a basis. I know that most recipes also call for cooking in olive oil, but I assume that could be omitted in favor of... (more)
I saw a similar question going back to April of last year. Not much of a response, which is sad to me because I feel that red palm oil is the equal to coconut oil and butter and bacon fat, albeit very different taste-wise. For slow-cooking... (more)
My wife has recently begun eating only the whites of the eggs, and I prefer to eat the whole egg. I think they're yummy, I dig the nutrients, and I don't want to see food go to waste. So, we'll have all these yolks saved, and I'd like to find a... (more)
Simple question. I like the coconut meat just raw, right after I hammered the shell, but can you do something else with it? Maybe making it a bit softer and less dry to chew on (the kids don't like it raw)? Thank you!
Coconut oil, ghee, and bacon grease are at the top of my list right now. I'm thinking that I should branch out, and I was hoping you could lay some tips and links to recipes here. Many thanks, and Happy Eating!
Roast a duck (good picture-heavy tutorial here and also one on MDA) and use the duck fat to roast some cubed root veggies (if you do potatoes, duck fat is great on them!). Avocado oil, tamari, and a little bit of orange juice make a great combo... (more)
How do you eat raw milk cheese? Do you melt, mix, cut it? Or just bite of the cheese cake? Do you have special herbs and greens for eating with cheese? Third...Do you think its god to eat cheese and meat together? Because its not Kosher. (more)
My father is a hunter and just gave me about 25 pounds of various venison cuts frozen solid. Does anyone has any recommendations on the best/most fail safe way to cook venison regardless of cut?
I'm the guy who puts ketchup on nearly everything. I've gone to non-HFCS brands, but it still has sugar. By eliminating a lot of the foods I used to put it on I've reduced my ketchup use, but I'd like to find a good paleo alternative. I've... (more)
Is arrowroot starch paleo? If so, I'd like to occasionally use it to thicken sauces and reductions. Last night I made a white wine butter reduction to pour over a shrimp/asparagus/spaghetti squash dish, but if I made it in the future (say for... (more)
I made roasted bone marrow for the first time, and it was not bad. Thing is, the grassfed bones cost $3 a pound here in Boston, and most of that is bone weight. The fat is really an accessory to whatever my protein is for the meal, and the... (more)
Hmm, doesn't look like you got the nicest bone. I usually get my butcher to give me the best ones with the highest ratio of fat to bone...because I'm a flirtatious gal ;) I recommend the recipe in Nose to Tail at Home. It's delicious!!!! I love... (more)
This week, I picked up my order of free-range organic chickens from a local farmer. I had requested the processors save me any extra parts. In addition to necks, hearts, and livers, I have 2 gallon Ziplocs of chicken feet. I have read they are... (more)
Winter is coming soon, and with it the need to feel cozy after being out in the harsh weather. In my youth that would consist of a hot shower followed by a hot chocolate and a hot bowl of chunky soup. Now, most chunky winter soups usually contain... (more)
Carmelize onions in a lot of butter or coconut oil before you add to soups. They actually thicken the soup a lot. Some types of capsicum peppers also thicken up with long slow cooking.
This isn't a question, but I figure I should share this here. I found a great recipe for ice cream that is paleo friendly. I used fresh banana instead of the recommened over-ripe ones because I am trying to watch my insulin... (more)
Hey guys, let me say thanks for the wonderful help I've recieved so far from this community. I'm trying to get purer fish into my diet (rather than preprepared stuff), so I've taken to buying either canned salmon or frozen fillets o' fish. For... (more)
Use that Ingredient: This will hopefully be a resource for ideas of how we can use ingredients in cooking that may be harder to add but we want the health benefits or new ways to cook old favorites start your own use that ingredient! This... (more)
I like taking some cilantro and running it through the food processor with a handful of jalapenos and some ancho chiles, and then using the thick paste you make to spread on top of burgers for the last few minutes of grilling. HEAVEN.
Does anyone know a good way of cooking sweetbreads? I have just bought some venison sweetbreads and have never tried them before. A lot of online recipes seem to involve a lot of preparation, is this really necessary?
Am going on a fishing trip with a friend for crappies in Wisconsin. Will have access to refrigerated storage and can bring in any ingredients. Traditionally, a trip like this would result in a celebratory feast of fried fish with cornmeal and... (more)
I impulsively bought some smelt today and was worried this whole paleo fish fry thing wouldn't work... but a wash, a dry, a dip in whisked egg, a dip in coconut flour/almond meal/spices + fried in just a little ghee= crispy whole fish goodness. (more)
I've been drinking coconut milk straight for a while now but only recently did I actually pay attention to the fact it was the "lite" kind. Which seems to pretty much defeat the point of drinking it since the fat is what I am actually after. So I... (more)
In Sally Fallon's book, Nourishing Traditions, her fermented food recipes call for refrigerating the mixtures after letting them sit out for a few days. Is it really necessary to refrigerate them or can you just keep them in a cool, dark place? ... (more)
