What are some good sources of folate other than leafy greens? Best I can find so far is chicken liver (or duck or other foul). Nice, because I wanted a good excuse to opt for chicken liver over beef liver now and then. I love them both. I... (more)
So I'm eating salads again and would like to know what sort of easy, quick, relatively painless yet delectable and nutritious salads you guys like to prepare. Fire off! And hey: if you want to offer a complicated, convoluted salad recipe I... (more)
I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
Hi guys and gals.. I'm buying fresh meat and vegetables at the moment which is costing me a fortune! I am going to keep up with the fresh meat but am considering buying frozen veg because it really is so expensive and also goes off so quick! Is... (more)
I've noticed that when I drink my smoothie too consistently I feel weak, my muscles are tired and I generally feel fatigued. In my Vitamix I put in Swiss Chard, carrots, burdock, blueberries, parsley, beets, ginger, bananas, maca and ashwaganda.... (more)
I was recently looking at a post about the types of greens people eat and how much and someone answered that they have removed leafy greens from their diet since it is undigestable due to the fibers or something... i'd like to learn more, but... (more)
I've never liked vegetables a whole lot, but recently I've included more greens, like lettuce on top of my dairy and meat with nice results. Meat and dairy by themselves never worked too great for me In bulk, but adding salad greens on top seems... (more)
Yes you can get a pretty full spectrum if nutrients from such a diet. I would be generous with the greens and over time try to include other vegetables. You can type everything into fitday.com or similar to get the nutrients. You might find that... (more)
First heard about it from Tim Ferris, but some other folks on podcasts I listen to have also mentioned. Just curious to know if anyone can report any benefits before I consider it. Increased energy? Increased fat loss? Better sleep? etc... (more)
happy holidays everyone! So i have been taking betaine hcl (about 5,000 with each meal) and less with smaller snacks. I have h pylori and believe that is what is suppressing my stomach acid. i just bought a juicer, and have been juicing greens. ... (more)
Stats: 31, 262 lbs, female Been paleo since end of July, when I first started, I couldn't get enough greens. Like kale, mustard greens and turnip greens and the like. Even before then I loved them. Suddenly I can't eat them without wanting to... (more)
I realize in the large scheme of things, any lettuce I eat probably doesn't have a huge effect on much. But I'm wondering what kind of lettuce is most popular amongst paleo types. I like all kinds of lettuce, so I purchase based on function: I buy... (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)
OK, so this is probably a stupid question. What does everyone eat as the "greens" for their salad. I grew up eating iceberg lettuce with a few tomatoes and that was considered a salad. I know that iceberg lettuce is not the best option. Lately... (more)

Olivia sells an organic saut?? blend that includes baby spinach, kale, mustard greens, and chard. I'm wondering - is this as healthy as buying each individually? It saves a lot of work but I've read that those pre-washed packages can be a few... (more)
Oh most definitely the non-bagged is fresher. The date of farmers market veg is how it physically looks to you when you handle, not by a date stamp. Also, the pre-cut stuff more than likely traveled hundres of miles before finding their new home... (more)
After a month-long diet of (almost exclusively) eggs, ground beef, and liver, I'm sure that vegetables play some role in digestive health. Why does eating vegetables make me feel good? Soluble fiber? Folate? Nitrate? Some other micronutrient I'm... (more)
sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.
I just got some collard greens from the farmers market and am looking for the best way to cook them! My sister is very skeptical of greens and I want to make something that will prove to her that they can be delicious!
4 slices of bacon chopped, cook in large frying pan until crisp. Add greens in bunches to wilt down. When all the greens are in add 2 TBSP vinegar (pref. raw) and two cups chicken broth. Simmer 15-20 mins. Salt to taste :)
The recipe I have for roasting beets has far more sugar than I realized. I need a new recipe. Preferably fast, easy, and picky-eater friendly. Bonus points for incorporating the greens. Any way to shred/slice them and then sautee?
Roast them in a little coconut oil, and when they're done toss them in fresh orange juice (blood oranges work wonderfully), a little orange zest, and salt and serve them on a bed of belgian endive with a sprinkling of walnuts.
