I just cannot get on board with the mushy sweetness of these tubers. I've tried them baked, mashed, grated and fried like hash browns and have not liked them. My next goal is to try to make a soup with them pureed, maybe it's the texture I... (more)
Hi guys, I have no trouble at all eating sit-down paleo meals, but I need help finding dependable on-the-go snacks. I found other posts about bars, nut and fruit mixes, smoothies and quick-prep snacks. But I need something for the... (more)
Hi guys, I am following an ultra strict version of the auto-immune protocol to try and heal an auto-immune disease. Just meat, fish, a few select well-cooked vegetables, sweet potatoes and green leaves. I also try to encorperate bone broth and... (more)
Hi there, I noticed something new about my body and food today When I eat white rice as my days worth of safe starch I can't seem to satisfy my appetite. However, when I eat sweet potato, I am satiated with a much smaller amount of... (more)
Hi guys, I follow the auto-immune protocol for the Paleo diet and it's been amazing and I feel great! : ) Since starting this diet I've lost a shed load of weight, about 15 kilos in 4 months. Before I was totally ripped so all this weight was... (more)
According to some, quinoa is not technically a grain and moreover sweet potatoes aren't considered to be as starchy as their golden cousins. Are these two allowed when eating paleo? Also, what about tofu? It's technically made from soybeans... (more)
I love extremely dark chocolate. 90% or above. Since I've only just started eating it, I've only tried two brands: Lindt and Green & Blacks. I've found that the Green & Blacks taste a lot sweeter than the Lindt bar, for the same... (more)
I just baked the purple sweet potatoes and it was a little soft on one end with blakish dots in the middle of the potato around the soft bad end. So I baked the potatoes with egg whites to give it some crisp but what i found was the egg whites... (more)
I regularly eat raw sweet potato on the car ride home after karate. I view it the same as eating raw carrot. Are there any potential issues with eating raw sweet potato?
I hate low glycemic fruits like berries, apples, pears. I love mangoes, Sapote mamey, pinapple, papayas, bananas, prunes, figs and dates and other high glycemic fruits. Are high glycemic fruits bad for metabolism, insulin or blood sugar?
Just gotta say... I LOVE THESE. I know making your own sweet potato fries is far healthier but sometimes I just don't feel like it... haha to say the least. On the ingredients of these babies though it does say "unbleached wheat flour" :( I would... (more)
I almost ask this as a rhetorical question because I know it's terrible, it's sweet, artificial and it is ohh so cooling. But that's the problem it freshens your breath more than anything else short term. It is far too inconvenient for me to... (more)
I used to eat huge amounts of spinach..at least a couple cups a day and after a while I wasn't recovering from my workouts and my muscles were always sore. Google searches turned my attention to oxalates. I stopped eating spinach for a couple... (more)
I had to switch from sweet potatoes to plantains for this very reason. Oxalates seem to mess me up bad (achy joints, bad sleep).
Just curious if anyone has had this response to xylitol. Has your sense of sweetness been desensitized by continuing to use sweeteners? When you pull xylitol out do you notice almost everything including veggies like tomatoes and cabbages tastes... (more)
The only sweetener I use is a little xylitol, and to me everything has tasted sweeter anyway since going primal/paleo. I feel that what desensitized people to sweets is the constant sugary drinks most people have. Since giving up soda, even the... (more)
So, I was telling a friend how I wrap my sweet potatoes in aluminum foil before I put them in the oven. Why do I do this? Because that's how I've always seen my mother do it. I never really thought about it and the sweet potatoes come out so nice... (more)
Im trying to get the straight dope on calorie info for these two. I live in Japan, and eat Satsumaimo. In Japanese Kanji, its says 100g raw yields 132 calories. But the regular orange fleshed sweet potato on the USDA nutrient database yields 86... (more)
First, this might help: See if this helps at all: http://paleohacks.com/questions/92959/nutrition-differences-in-different-varieties-of-sweet-potatoes#axzz1z6UFW9Zh And the North Caroline Sweet Potato Commission Everything you ever wanted to... (more)
So I baked some sweet potatos last night for my post workout and I forgot to refrigerate them. They were left out for twelve hours wrapped in foil, could they still be good? There is no bad odor or any indication of expiration.
All starches are eliminated from the GAPS diet because they can be used as food by the excess of bacteria in your gut, creating gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation. The only carbohydrates allowed on the GAPS diet are from... (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.
Hi all, Not to go too much into detail and gross you all out but i ate sweet potatoes yesterday for the first time in ages and ive been spending longer than usual on the toilet today as a result! Does anyone else get this when eating sweet... (more)
You could be intolerant to the mannitol, which is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol (A FODMAP). Do pineapples, olives, or asparagus agree with you?
For the following foods which potato would go best with it from a nutriton perspective (russet or sweet)? Grass Fed Meat? Dark Leafy Greens? pastured eggs? I am planning on eating both types of potatoes and I am wondering which foods will... (more)
Mm.. because of my activity level I tend to have my sweets in the morning to replenish and build and then regular potatoes as night. Sometimes I roast the two together as a blend but lately have been switching off at night between roasted squash,... (more)
As as endurance athlete, I eat a lot of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin, and other squashes. Recently I've been told that I'm looking "orange"- like I fake tan look to me. Is this from eating a lot of orange foods? Or is this in... (more)
So I am a 230lb 5'10" guy who works out on a regular basis. My understanding is that my base caloric needs should be around 2,700 and with my work outs I burn about 700 calories in an hour 3 days a week. The rest of the days are a crap shoot, it... (more)
