Hi all, I know cheese and dairy in general are a gray area in Paleo. However, should you decide for its consumption, what types of cheese are in terms of macros the most interesting? I am aware its best to have cheese made from raw, full-fat... (more)
I bought some unpasteurized feta in a can about three months ago. I was told it would last a very long time if kept in its original liquid. I took it out and noticed the top of the can was bulging, and some of the edges on the outside were rusty... (more)
I was told or read a long time ago that you are not supposed to eat anything from bulging cans. I would personally throw it all out. Better to waste a few bucks then to require a hospital visit, which would cost a lot more. Just IMHO.
So, I've always been open to eating avocados, nuts, etc...but the idea of eating lots of animal fats, full-fat dairy (I tolerate it digestively), and butter just seems crazy to me! For example I use caloriecount, and if I eat full-fat cheese, I... (more)
So...I found a recipe for Carrot Green (aka Carrot Top) pesto that I REALLY want to try making because I really want to try using my carrot greens. However, all the recipes that I have found use parmesan cheese (as a traditional pesto would). As... (more)
Do you British guys/gals know any good online sources of unpasteurized cheese that deliver within UK? I tried the 2 cheeses on red23 which were nice but can't find much else through google, would like a bit of variety I did notice the pre grated... (more)
Sainsbury and Tesco both sell unpasteurised cheese (both do cheddars from Canada, if I recall correctly, and Sainsburys has some other unpasteurised french cheeses.
I am new to Paleo, but have done low carb for many years (and have fallen off several times because let's face it, LC just gets boring after awhile). A Paleo approach seems like a much more sustainable lifestyle and one that I can maintain since... (more)
Personally if you don't have an issue with dairy then cheese should be fine. I get the desire sometimes I feel like I need the good bacteria and enzymes from cheese so I too go with a goat cheese or goat yoghurt or find some really good artisan... (more)
I have been getting paleo diet delivery from The Primal Plan, and have been pretty much eating 100% paleo. I am now craving some cheese on my eggs in the morning. I always used to add a sharp cheddar because it was my fav . Is there a different... (more)
Blue cheese wasn't high on my list - sophisticated taste, but too bitter. Recently I put aside a piece of the pasteurised stuff, wrapped in cellophane, and accidentally left it for a few days at room temp. When I discovered the cheese it was... (more)
Hello Everyone, I am fairly new to Paleo and would love if you could recommend cheese and butter types/brands that are Paleo friendly? I shop at Whole Foods but frequent Trader Joe's when I get the opportunity. Additionally, what would you say... (more)
Here I am again with another question. This time it concerns dairy. I've heard people sprout about the evils of dairy products. I am not alergic to dairy products. In fact I love my cheese. I eat some with nearly every meal now. Along with my... (more)
I was wondering if blue cheeses are perhaps harmful to gut bacteria by nature of their molds or if the amount is so small that it doesn't matter.
I have been paleo for four weeks now and have avoided all kinds of cheese thinking it is a big no no But the more i read and the millions of recipies on the internet include cheese. Some books include cheese and some say avoid all dairy. I am so... (more)
i wanted to know that does curds,yoghurts,cheese slice,cheese cubes..get spoilt without refrigeration...i wanted to carry out with me like yoghurts and cheese ..to eat every 2-3 hours as a snack..travelling nd all i do alot..so is it safe if i eat... (more)
I answered a similar question yesterday about boiled eggs, where my opinion was "not safe"--but these are different. Yogurt and cheese both represent food preservation techniques. Yogurt has beneficial bacteria that out-compete harmful ones and... (more)
So I understand the thin line with dairy and paleo. (if you're hardcore dairy is blasphemy.) but whats the deal with types of cheeses that are okay. I have a recipe ready using pears, roquefort, and almonds but was curious if bleu cheeses are out... (more)
Depends on you! If you feel ok after eating blue cheese, I would say go for it as a treat! If you feel terrible after eating it obviously I would mostly avoid. Paleo is a template!!!
I typically avoid dairy at all costs because it flares up my cystic acne, but I was wondering if there are certain cheeses that might be the least likely to trigger acne. I've seen people who avoid milk because it causes acne for them, with the... (more)
I eat a fairly paleo diet, mostly the higher fat, lower carb side of things (some inspiration from Art Ayers and Kurt Harris), and seem to do perfectly well with dairy, which is great because I love cheese! However, much as I do enjoy it just... (more)
I have, for years, an insatiable craving for heavy sweet cream. Before menopause, I would indulge in it a day before my period. I'd drink 8 or 16 ozs. of it as soon as I'd buy it. I'd drink it while still in the car. I couldn't possibly wait... (more)
I am fine when I eat home-made yoghurt, it seems to do me good, but when I eat cheese it makes me sneeze and have rhinitus, v annoying. Now, I know what you're all gonna say, just stop eating the stuff..but I just can't seem to kick it. I don't... (more)
Hello Fellow Paleo Folks, I was wondering if anybody out there has a preferred source for organic sausages and cold cuts. On the lines of Murrays in NYC. I am traveling into San Francisco next week and was wondering if I could order online or... (more)
I received some water kefir grains in the mail recently, and they smelled pretty cheesy. Is this a bad thing? I've never had water kefir before, so I'm not sure how it should smell.
Hello all, I get good raw milk from a farm, and I get a lot (3 2-liter bottles is a lot when you live alone!). I drink it and I make yoghurt, but I always have lots left. So I made some cottage cheese using the milk (which involves bringing it... (more)
Over a year ago I was diagnosed as celiac and started eating a low carb grain free diet based sort of on WAP. It was paleo with lots of dairy. I was eating cheese or yogurt with every meal and in addition to feeling crappy in general, I started to... (more)
A lot of Trader Joe's cheeses are imported, and I assume that some are grassfed regardless of whether or not the label says so because there are different regulations and husbandry practices in other countries. How do I figure this out? Cheese... (more)
