According to some, quinoa is not technically a grain and moreover sweet potatoes aren't considered to be as starchy as their golden cousins. Are these two allowed when eating paleo? Also, what about tofu? It's technically made from soybeans... (more)
Meat burnout?--I go through periods, where I just want to eat raw, plant things. I've had to battle cravings for tempeh before even though I never ate it regularly. I get sick of meat 3X a day.
