I've recently switched over to cast-iron skillets for all of my cooking needs. While my stews taste much, much better, I haven't head any luck getting my omelets and other egg concoctions to do anything but stick to the bottom of the skillets.... (more)
Obviously not talking about cows, pigs etc, but fresh fish, rabbits etc are easily accessible within hours of catching and killing them. I find most fish is best eaten before it goes into rigor mortis, and that I assume that this preserves the... (more)
i have one question that i cant seem to find the answer to anywhere, once your done cooking your bone broth, are you supposed to let it cool in the fridge for a couple hours, then skim the fat off of it, then you are allowed to eat it? or can... (more)
I'm trying to make digestion go as smoothly as possible. I've read that cooking your fruits and vegetables on low heat helps them get digested easier. So... Which fruits are best for COOKING ? EDIT: FYI: I'm not suggesting cooking ALL my fruit,... (more)
Since there is vinegar and dye in mustard (most of it, but I am sure there are some cleaner brands) I was wondering if anyone knew how to make mustard? Technically, could I find mustard seed and put it in the food processor with apple cider... (more)
I was reading: http://www.radiancenutrition.com/2011/08/19/put-down-that-kale-smoothie-why-you-should-cook-your-food/ And it made the point that cooking veggies makes them more bio available because: "Destruction of cell walls in vegetables... (more)
Hi, I made some grass-fed hamburgers for dinner around 9PM. I put the leftover cooked burgers in a zip lock bag opened while I let it cool off. For some reason I don't like putting hot food in the fridge right away. I forgot they were still... (more)
I had an enamel omelette pan but it got thrown out while I was out of town (WTH?!). Now, I'm using a teflon pan that is new -so no scratches,yet- but I want to get something that is more durable and less toxic. And, of course, that my omelette... (more)
Forgive me if this has already been asked before. I searched and couldn't find it. How do you determine if meat is bad? Do you go by smell, color, date, all three, or something else? I have some beef shanks I bought four days ago that I want to... (more)
what say you? is the soy oil of concern? if so, can I get rid of it and re-season? Also, i went to the Lodge web site because so many people recommend that brand and it turns out they season with soy oil too, is this problematic? (I don't have... (more)
I don't think it's too big a deal personally. The amount of oil which would get into your food is negligible. If it bothers you, you can remove the seasoning with steel wool and reseason with lard.
I was vegetarian for about 12 years, and for the past 2 have been eating seafood. I just started paleo a few days ago and am phasing it in, and decided try adding in some grass fed beef and a small bit of poultry to see if I notice a... (more)
Chicken backs and necks aren't good for much, but they are GREAT for stock/broth! They're loaded with the connective tissue that makes good gelatin, some meat, and the bones are tiny and multi-faceted, meaning more surface area exposed to the hot... (more)
For the purposes of time management and convenience, I usually cook big batches of food that I'll consume over a few days. (Thank goodness I don't get sick of leftovers!) I don't like to use the microwave, so I find myself eating a lot of my food... (more)
Does anyone have any creative uses for bone broth now that the warmer months are imminent? I love using it in soups and stews all fall/winter/spring. I'm making another right now with a combo of turkey and beef. But I feel like I seasonally... (more)
Take a look at the nutritional label for 1 pound of grass fed ground beef (before cooking and after): http://s18.postimage.org/6pblj5oft/weg_ground_beef_labe2l.png After cooking the 1 pound of 93% lean ground, it weighed 12oz (actually, 11.6oz,... (more)
I think the fat/protein numbers aren't being changed at all here. Nutritional labels are allowed to round things like calorie counts. You can check it too, albeit using rounded values as well: For raw: 8g fat * 9 + 24g pro * 4 = 168 cals w/ 72... (more)
Can someone, anyone please explain how I can cook heavy greens to be edible? I have spent a lot of time and money trying to figure it out, but I end up with a green soupy mess that literally taste like a metal can. I have tried mustard, collard,... (more)
Okay, here goes. I have found coconut oil cooking spray in the supermarket and was wondering if it was good to go. Ingredients read: coconut oil (65%), propane, butane. A few disclaimers here: I do not plan to use this as my main fat (see extra... (more)
I was wondering if anyone knew how to cook green plantains. And also...if it comes to boiling vs cooking in oil, as it usually does with potatoes, which would be the way to maximize retention of nutrients. Thanks again for the input!!
As any-one who's tried to cook them will know, kidneys smell pretty awful. In deference to the preferences of my fiance, I've tried to reduce the urine smell by soaking them (as lots of recipes recommend) and then discarding the liquid before... (more)
Heretofore I roasted veges in olive oil, but I'd like to stop doing that. It's easy, because it's liquid at room temp, but I'd prefer not to heat it anymore and save it for salads. What oils are good for roasting (broccoli, cauliflower, brussels... (more)
For example I don't cook the food for the same day. During my lunch break at work I go to the nearby store and buy the ingredients for 4 servings meal (we don't have kids yet) and I cook it after work - this is the dinner we will eat the next day... (more)
One day a week I usually go to town making 1-2 big items, prepping everything else so when it's time to eat I can go from stove to plate in about 10 minutes. My work is all over the place - I can have a 12-hour day or an easy day.. or something... (more)
I'd like to add more seafood to my Paleo diet, and as part of this I've tried cooking the whole fish a couple times but to be honest I really don't know what I'm doing... Hopefully there's a fish monger on here that can enlighten me? I know that... (more)
http://emsoninc.com/Super-Wave-Oven It's a Groupon deal today, and it seems like it'd be awesomely awesome in helping me to prepare my paleo meals, but I can't figure out from the info online whether it's my style. One big question I have is... (more)
