But Is It Paleo Questions
My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?
Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)
Hi there, This may seem pernickety but just want to check what you all think of this product: Sunita Organic Lemon Juice I use lemon an awful lot in recipes, drinks and dressings, and I think it would work out cheaper/more convenient to buy... (more)

I still purchase bottled ReaLemon lemon juice from time to time to keep on-hand (they had jugs of it on sale at Costco last time i needed any and it was cheaper than buying a pile of lemons) for cooking and splashing into water or tea. I somehow... (more)
If you don't have a sulphite sensitivity (and in truth, it's a minority who do), then polish off the bottle. If the idea bothers you, don't buy it again. Sulphite sensitivity isn't widespread.
Since it's winter, I miss hot cups of tea every morning. Since going paleo I've stopped drinking milk altogether because we can only get homogenized and pasteurized here. My mum won't buy raw grassfed because it's too expensive. I do miss tea. I... (more)
I was introduced to paleo from my friend a couple weeks back, and he explained it to me as basically just eliminating (or severely limiting) consumption of grains, legumes, and beans (foods that are "neolithic") and focusing on fruits, vegetables,... (more)
Has anyone ever tried this? I loooove duck, but haven't been able to find any around here at a reasonable price. I was hoping this could be a reasonable choice for fat. Yes, I know it's preferable to render my own, but I'd like thoughts on this... (more)
Have you guys seen this new Paleobread stuff you can order (paleobread.com)? It looks pretty solid to me. No funky ingredients or anything in the coconut one. I was about to go order a bunch of the coconut bread one when all of a sudden I felt... (more)

I am seeing Green Coffee Bean extract advertised everywhere now (including Starbucks.) It apparently is some sort of fat burner or something. Does anyone know what this stuff exactly is? Is it Paleo?
I've read his 4-hour workweek and 4-hour body and am eagerly anticipating his 4-hour chef. I found his books fascinating and full of surprisingly useful information with credible scientific evidence. I've also met him and consider him to be... (more)
Wasnt the Honey Badger eating rice crispies a while back and copping lots of flack for doing so?
Examples: alcohol - yes we probably came across fermenting fruit at times. Probably not like a glass of wine on a daily basis. coffee - likely that our ancestors took drug containing beans, roasted and then brewed them (in non existent... (more)
For those unfamiliar (as I was): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_fryer If you are going to eat chips Vacuum Fried seem to be the way to go. Less fat and that fat is there should be better due to lower temperature cooking (also less... (more)
I'm watching a few videos from Paleo FX and trying to bring my 80/20 rule to more of a 90/10 rule [and beyond!]. I can't help but notice a huge sponsor in the backgrounds of these videos: Quest Bars. I'm a huge fan/addict of the protein and... (more)
I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.

Is there a list somewhere of seed oils? I keep reading on Paleo sites that seed oils shouldn't be used. What does this include? I'm assuming like soybean, etc. I also know that, obviously, seed oils come from seeds, but I'm looking for further... (more)
So I've been wondering are the "Green Machine" drinks by Naked Juice Paleo? From what I can tell, they're only fruit and veggie juice. I wasn't sure how "Paleo" these are, or if a home-made comparable drink would be. I'm mostly unsure, just... (more)
So, while grocery shopping yesterday, my boyfriend and I were looking at an uncured spiral cut ham from Trader Joes. I'm assuming this, while nitrate/nitrite free, is not paleo because it contains sugar. The ingredients were: Ham, Water,... (more)
So lots of threads on this site about whether it is OK to eat CAFO meat for budgetary reasons and what to do if that's all you can afford. My question is simply, if we are telling people to eliminate the NADs (neolithic agents of disease):... (more)
I've just started eating Paleo, and I have a question. Are Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce Paleo? I'm thinking no, because the ingredients are: chipotle peppers, tomato puree, paprika, sugar, salt, onions, sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves... (more)
That's La Morena, right? I think that's the only one I've seen with sesame oil. Anyway, I always have a decanted can in a jar in the fridge. I use both the puree and chopping up the chili as an enhancer to salad dressings and sauces, soup,... (more)
I know we're lacking a definition at the moment for Paleo itself, but I wonder if there are some common elements we might agree on. Giving prescriptive answers rather than a methodology for making decisions, citing reductionist nutritionism over... (more)
