Hello all, New to the forum and recently started a paleo diet with the PaleoLeap program. So far I really like the food, but I have always hated the taste of sweet potatos. What is their purpose? Can I just use white potatos? If not, are there any... (more)
Can I use millet flour as a substitute for almond flour.? I usually use coconut or sunflower seed flour, but I currently have no access to either of the products.
Nut & alternative grain flours are totally icing on the proverbial paleo cake. Their only advantage is that they are gluten-free. If that's your primary concern, then go for it.
I am looking to make a meat loaf recipe that calls for ~1/2 cup crushed soda crackers as filler. I'm thinking of using a seasoned almond flour "breadcrumb" mixture in place of the soda crackers, but I am not sure of the ratio to use. Since this is... (more)
Hey everyone, So to cut right to the chase - both my parents are addicted to Maxwell House International French Vanilla instant "coffee"...which is horrible. The worst part is, they eat a fairly paleo-ish diet (via my influence), yet... (more)
The paleo lifestyle has been a journey for me, but one thing that got me started was when I felt hungry or had cravings, I would eat a spoonful of coconut oil mixed with something (b/c I didn't like the taste by itself). It helped me feel... (more)
As most fellow paleo dieters know by now, i have a pretty big love for chocolate and other not so friendly paleo sweets. And i do believe that if it were not for this addiction, i could truly stick to any diet devised by man. I know that at times... (more)
Mark sisson's site seems to suggest that it does not cause insulin levels to rise, any thoughts on energy bars that use sugar alcohols and refer to themselves as low carb (net effective carb subtracting fibers and sugar alcohol to yield 1-2 gm of... (more)
Until now I have been using almond flour and coconut flour when baking muffins, pancakes etc. But then I found this website that has a list of grain-free foods and among a lot of foods I noticed Buckwheat and Quinoa. I googled the two and found... (more)
After success with other more natural alternatives, I've become skeptical of many mass produced so called 'health' products. Considering that fluoride is a toxin, I haven't found any good research showing that applying it to my mouth is really... (more)
I can't really tolerate alcohol since going paleo, but I miss the color (I know it doesn't make sense but I love the way light shines through a glass of white wine or champagne) and flavors of beer, wine, and cider. I get a buzz from one glass of... (more)
I am feeding my baby a mostly paleo diet it seems (following the methods of Nourishing Traditions) and have determined that he is most likely allergic to coconut. Does anyone have suggestions for binders and breading that is not nut (or... (more)
Why do you need binders to make portable foods? Cut up the foods that you are eating into "baby" size portions, and give him that to eat. No need to make nuggets or crackers yet.
I'd just like to hear your baking experiences with coconut oil. When substituting for butter or vegetable oil I feel like things are coming out too dry if I use a 1-to-1 substitution. I really don't care about trying to match nutrient ratios or... (more)
I have always just substituted it 1 for 1. If it is drier for you, I'd just add more until the consistency is right. May I ask where you're getting these recipes and what flours you're using?
