So I saw these at the local alternative supermarket this evening and wondered what opinions here thought of them! Given the added sugar; I won't be getting these again but I thought they were worth a look. Ingredients list is as... (more)
Inspired by an old post about whether people should eat Kind Bars (the answers is no, not really) I thought perhaps some people here have some hacks for Paleo-style energy bars for snacks and on the go meals. I am generally a meat and potatoes... (more)
One Jar of Almond butter (Blue diamond spreadable works best, other brands drain the oil) Raisins (sparsly used) 1 cup of egg whites or 3 eggs. 2 Tablespoons of shredded coconut Mix and Bake. It will seem like it won't mix originally but it... (more)
I'm a 16 year old high school student. I started reading about Paleo a short while ago and have been trying to get on the bandwagon since, but I keep falling off. I'll be fine in the morning, make a few eggs, maybe some bacon, and then not feel... (more)
I have a slight weakness for Atkins bars but they only have 2 net carbs and 1 gram of sugar. (The other ones, the powerbar-type ones have too much sugar for me (usually 20g) and thus give me a sugar high and crash). Not very paleo but it does the... (more)
Sometimes I cut my steak into oblong shapes. Does that count as a protein bar? So, in a word: no. That sort of stuff weirds me out...if I can't make it in my kitchen, I'm not gonna eat it.
I just discovered this site tonight while browsing current Groupon deals - it allows you to pick single elements (almonds, almond butter, dates, cocoa powder, etc.) and assemble them for a box of individually-wrapped, customized snack bars sent to... (more)
Yeah, I thought about getting these for someone busy/special, but for that price you could get Tanka bars, which have meat in them. I'd also be more likely to get these if they had macadamia butter or coconut butter as a base. I wonder if I could... (more)
After successful runs making kale chips, I'm thinking about trying seaweed chips. But I can't find a recipe. Has anybody made these? Being a baking newb, I was wondering if anybody makes veggie chips with coconut oil or butter, or if that's... (more)
I used to like eating crackers with all kinds of toppings. Tuna, avacado, pate etc. Is there any healthy substitute for crackers so that I can still enjoy a convenient snack.
Cucumber slices are good for this. Also, if you eat cheese you can grate Parmesan or cheddar and put spoonfuls on a baking sheet and bake till they're brown, thin and crispy.
Sorry - these are probably really cringe-y "newbie" questions .... I buy my coconut milk in cans. When I open them the milk has usually separated into the liquid and then about an inch of denser cream at the top. This is fine when I am cooking as... (more)
I have fallin in love with the BE Kind Almond and Cocunut bars specifically but they have alot of other options too. Eh I'm sure I am stretching the Paleo idea here...but the ingredient list is tiny. No crazy adders. Here is the list of... (more)
My sister bought a bag of chips today and refusing it furiously I was interesteed what kind of nutrition value does this "evil of food" hold. I was expecting crazy Omega 6 content but in reality... (more)
A question that often comes up in the paleo community is what to eat for breakfast. Some people, myself included, get a little tired of eggs in various forms every morning. And while I'm certainly not averse to meat and veggies at breakfast, I... (more)
Colleagues often bring in homemade cookies, candies, muffins etc to share at work. I'd like to share something too, but I would like it to be healthy. Do you have any good alternatives to those kinds of sweets? Store-bought fruit somehow... (more)
Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!
Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.
Hey guys,I'm in the process of starting a local Paleo snack company and am working on it's first product. It's still a massive work in progress (aesthetics and other), but I'd like to get your advice.It's a cacao coconut cookie with a chocolate... (more)
I know that some of us don't believe in snacking as part of the Paleo lifestyle and some of us only snack on whole foods (fruits, boiled eggs, avocados, etc), but some of us still do enjoy snacking on prepared healthy snack foods (everything... (more)

What kind of snacks should I bring for the MCAT? It's a fairly long test with two 10 min breaks. Pre-meds usually bring energy bars and gatorade, but obviously those are out of the question. I'm leaning towards Fage full fat yogurt, a lara... (more)
I'm trying to lower my body fat% so which is worse, having a 1/2 cup of pistachios or having 1-2 servings of fruits a day such as a grapefruit and a pear? or is it okay to have both? (more)
Hello Everyone, My name is Ilya and I am a long time Paleo eater. I am currently launching my own Paleo Snack Box that comes to your house every month, and trying to get the word out! Im raising money on kickstarter here:... (more)
I'm brand new to paleo - 10 days in - and I love it, but I'm having difficulty eating enough fat (and I never thought I'd be saying that in my life). I have a sneaking suspicion that while my carbs are good, my protein to fat ratio is too... (more)
Okay so i'm new to the forum so hello! :) but here's my question. Is it possible to eat too many nuts (almonds) I realized I do eat a lot of almonds trying to get my calories filled in before bed by snacking on nuts usually about 3 servings so... (more)
i lived off their old bagged cashes and almonds a year go when I started Paleo (and because I travel so much for work) but those are now discontinued - any thoughts on these new snacks. I see they have sees and vanilla extract so my initial... (more)
If you need to grab something to eat from starbucks, go for their protein plate: Peanut butter, eggs, cheese, apple, grapes -- or their chicken plate: chicken, lettuce, apple.
Looking for some n=1 accounts of macadamia nut consumption. I know I've gotten carried away before and eaten quite a bit and felt icky but even then I'm not sure it was the nuts or the excess. In theory, they're an excellent food source. Also... (more)
I am a Type 1 (diagnosed 8 years ago, now 28) who just started paleo 3 weeks ago and I definitely have noticed a difference in my blood sugars (yay!). I was just wondering - other than treating lows with almond butter/apple slices or just fruit... (more)
