Can paleo dieters eat steel cut oats? Also, is there value in eating quinoa in salads or as a pudding for breakfast? Thanks, Claudia

You can eat anything you want, but no, steel cut oats are not included in the paleo diet. That said, I eat them sometimes, just make sure you soak them overnight first. There's probably some value to eating quinoa if junk food is your... (more)

The sugar crash happens when your blood sugar gets high, and your body pumps out too much insulin, thus clearing out the glucose (remember glucose above a certain level in the blood is toxic). With a paleo diet, you have a steady level of glucose... (more)

A local farm says "The cattle graze on our summer pastures and are fed grass-legume hay from our fields during the winter." Is this as good as "grass finished"?

Legume hay is alfalfa hay. Excellent natural feed as long as its not fed exclusively. It needs to be mixed with grass to prevent bloat.

Honestly, don't worry about whether your diet fits into the "traditional" Paleo diet. If you're happy with your body comp, energetic, and sleeping well, you're doing things right, whether you're eating "strict" Paleo or not. Keep on keeping on bud :) (more)
