Just wondering what the body does with far and how it handles it without carbs/insulin. Also would it make a difference if this fat was ingested after a 20 hour fast? Or if ingested with protein?
I just bought a vegetable spiral slicer and Im so excited!! I was wondering if anyone has some tips or tricks about getting rid of excess water and storing (plan to make a decent amount for the week) zucchini noodles. Thanks!
I would like to store mints and sundries like that in little bags or pouches when I'm on the go, but I'd like to avoid using plastics. Would anyone have recommendations for something that could fit the bill? Tiny leather pouches might be quite... (more)
Paper bags, glass tupperware, mason jars, parchment or wax paper.
I am looking for the best manner to store bulk cooked meals as well as raw portioned out fish, meat and produce. The idea behind this is that I can cook for 2-3 weeks worth of meals, then portion them out into daily meal bags that I... (more)
Hello: I am Type 2 diabetic and was recently prescribed a daily dose of 100mg Sitagliptin Phosphate (Januvia). My reading informs me that this drug prevents the liver from releasing glucose. I know that the liver stores excess glucose in the... (more)
I was wondering your opinions on the best way to store meat. After buying a big pack from the store, should I cook it all, and reheat as I need it, or would it be better to keep it raw and cook it each time? I don't know if this is all based on... (more)
Looking to switch from plastic to glass food storage containers to avoid. Are all the brands the same?? Is there a safer brand or all they all pretty safe as far as chemicals and toxins?
Life before tupperware and aluminium foil - did people use waxed paper, paper?, cloth and pottery vessels? I would like to go back to storing food in this manner - any tips?
I have an early start tomorrow and will be out all day, so I need to prepare a lunchbox tonight. I have some salmon and lots of vegetables and coconut oil. Is it okay if I fry the fish as I normally would and leave it in the fridge overnight... (more)
We use glass boxes for our lunch boxes. They are easy to wash and easy on the environment. I am sure that a few days of using aluminum foil will not hurt your food or the environment :)
I am making my first sauerkraut, but I don't know if it is ready, if I need to wait a little more or if it definitely is spoiled! Today is its 10th day. I used half cabbage with celtic salt and 1 shredded carrot. Now the kraut at the top is... (more)
This explains my varying response to kale chips, chocolate, coffee/tea, coconut oil, nuts, coconut cream, and cheese - sometimes I'm fine and other times I get nausea, loose stool, diarrhea, gas, and/or abdominal pain. I've also had a bad response... (more)
So I acquired a 16lb pork belly, which was significantly bigger than I expected. Does anyone know how to convert this to preserved or freezable palatable food? I'm in a bit over my head. I'm looking for advice on seasoning, preparation and... (more)
LOL once this happened to me. Lots of good advice here, but what made thing A LOT easier for me was I took it to a local butcher and he sliced it part of it thinly for me with a slicing machine (cost a couple of dollars) so that made making bacon... (more)
I'm going to be making the switch to mostly paleo living (after years of swapping back and forth between SAD) and I'm sure I'm going to have a million questions.. First one is about coconut milk in my coffee. Do you just use canned coconut milk... (more)
Is there an app out there that allows one to store recipes found online and acess them later? I found something called PepperPlate that sounded promising, but recipes can only be added through the site (not the app) and only from an approved... (more)
I just started using coconut milk instead of half-and-half in my coffee. I find that, even if I shake the cans vigorously, the cream separates out and stays separated. Refrigerating it after opening isn't helping. I'm half tempted to track down a... (more)
I've recently added brown rice to my diet as opposed to white rice, because the I believe that the nutrient profile is better. I have been soaking it according to this method here:... (more)
Why did we evolve with the ability to store some nutrients and possibly causing toxicity (i.e. Vit A, B12, etc...) and shed others (i.e. Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, etc...) when the body has enough? What would be the purpose of this from an... (more)
I have seen a lot of questions circulating about nuts, particularly macadamias. I apologize if this has been asked already, but if I were to buy a years worth of of macadamias (pretty much only nut I eat) in bulk online (I calculate that to be 7... (more)
Will it really help in preventing or slowing rancidity, either in its detectable or non-detectable form? Does anyone have some good scientific reasoning for this one? Or some good observational evidence? I searched the site and didn't find this... (more)
How many grams of glycogen can be held in the liver, and then also, how many in muscles? I've heard about 100 grams in the liver, and 400 grams in the muscles, but I need to make sure. Does anyone have any good sources for this info? Thanks!
The short of it: I want to give milk kefir a crack, but only every other day. And I need a plan to do it. The long of it (skippable): When it comes to the game of life I have recently fallen flat on my ass. I'll be returning to school for... (more)
So i've seen this list on the internet of the top ten foods to store long term. It was all crappy food like wheat, rice and beans. Pretty much anti Paleo. After a long time of thinking I think I came up with a paleo version of the list. it's as... (more)
I've never put nuts in the refrigeration. How do you store them - in plastic jars, glass jars, or ziplock bags? What shelf/drawer in the fridge do you put them - with veggies? How cold do you keep them? Thanks.
Has anyone else tried drying their own meat the way fancy steakhouses do? I experimented with "dry-aging" my own beef by storing it uncovered and on rack in the refrigerator. I left a ribeye roast alone for a week, during which it turned a dark... (more)
