This is typically my first meal of the day. Includes three or so of each of the following: brazil nut, pecan nut, almond, hazlenut, pistachio. Plus a handfull of macadamia nuts and a naughty tablespoon of roasted caschew... (more)
IF - and only if - the theory regarding omegas sounds plausible to you, I would advise to limit the amount of Omega-6 foods you're ingesting. The proponents of the "omega ratio" theory argue that a ratio near 1:1 is ideal for cellular health,... (more)
Where I live, it is recommended to eat 6 pieces of fruit and vegetables per day. But I hear that many paleo people say that you should not eat very much fruit because there is sugar in it. How much do paleo-dieters recommend to eat? What about... (more)
Since starting CrossFit and Paleo, I've been losing too much weight. In an attempt to gain weight, I have significantly upped the quantity of the foods I eat, as well as drinking a shake every day that consists of one can (about 14oz/900... (more)
Shredded coconut, coconut flakes, dried coconut... Whatever you call it, I LOVE THE STUFF! Its the only way I consume coconut in my diet (no coconut milk, oil, flour) I crave it everyday, and have it by the spoon, but one spoon or two is never... (more)

I'll soon be moving to Dibba, Oman where I'll live for the next seven months. I've lived there before so I know what foods are available. It's easy to buy Australian steak at the grocery store- but I'm sure its not grass fed. Chicken, lamb, eggs,... (more)
My wife heard from our doctor that I should avoid eggs because I have chronic hepatitis B. As a result I only get an egg once a million year(average is two eggs per year). I saw online that eggs are ok for me to eat. I don't plan to eat 25 eggs a... (more)
