We made a very nice pizza with grated cauliflower mixed up with egg to make the base, I'm sure you could find the recipe on google. Don't know about the whey cheeses though, try it and let us know how it goes!
What do you thing about it? Assuming it's isolate with zero additives? Like this one for example: http://www.truenutrition.com/p-1100-whey-protein-isolate-cfm-cross-flow-microfiltration-1lb-milk.aspx (more)
I'm assuming the Whey Protein (Gold Standard Brand) is not Paleo? Recently purchased the big jug (5lb) thinking I was doing right, didn't really look into until after the fact. Is there powder alternative that's considered safe/Paleo? Or another... (more)
This is my first time receiving raw buttermilk (or raw dairy of any sort) from a farm. The raw milk, raw cream, and even kefir (though this was a bit pungent in an odd way, too -- smelled similar to a cow's musk when the milk and cream didn't at... (more)
Genetics aside, isit possible to gain/maintain a decent amount of muscle eating strict paleo? If you have done so how did you do it? Im an ectomorph so maybe just naturally a hard gainer, but any muscle I put on can be lost so easily, so im... (more)
I knew whey protein is not considered strictly paleo for a long time, but I always used it because I had no reason to believe it is bad. But recently I felt a little phlegm-y after having two smoothies in one day, so I did some digging around.... (more)
There is lactose intolerance and there is casein allergy - both components in milk and also found in whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is a very purified version of whey and my question is are there any here who have found an issue... (more)
Hi guys I'm 52 years old and have been taking whey only after workouts. I realize my age has A lot to do with trouble losing belly fat. Just curious if whey can make it tougher to lose weight. Thanks for your time.
Can anyone recommend a protein hydrolysate that isnt derived from dairy? There are just so many benefits for training! I'd love to benefit from a protein powder PWO, but they all seem to be whey and cassein. I took an ALCAT food allergy test... (more)
Make beef or fish stock/broth from bones. Or crack bones and eat the marrow. Look into gelatin powders. Knox is pure soluble protein, thoug I don't know how it rates as paleo.
I use kefir whey as a starter for my lacto-fermented veggies (most especially beet kvass). I'm thinking of trying to eliminate ALL dairy to find out if I'm sensitive to it, and I'm wondering if that means that I need to stop using whey as a... (more)
I had a long talk with a pretty knowledgeable guy at a Vitamin Shoppe a couple days ago and we got to talking about protein powders and the difference between fast absorbing proteins and slow absorbing proteins. He mentioned how whey gets... (more)
i am a crossfiter and am thinking of using whey protein powder for getting in protein in the mornings and after working out. what are the guidlines or where does whey powder fit with paleo?
I know that whey protein is in the gray area, or as Mark Sisson describes it, the 80/20 zone. But as many have said, it's also a complete protein source with glutathione and immune boosting properties. Hedonistically-speaking, whey isolate... (more)
I lift weights x5 a week and typically end my workout with a nice grass-fed, certified rBGH-free whey protein powder. Later in the day, I've been adding a plant-based, soy-free protein powder made from pea protein isolate, brown rice protein... (more)
Sweet whey powder (henceforth "SWP") is a byproduct of making cheese and is a commodity. The protein content of SWP is 13.1% protein by weight. The rest of it is largely sugar (74.5%). See its nutrition fact sheet here. One can buy SWP at $50... (more)
http://www.mtcapra.com/caprotein/ There are a few companies out there offering this. I don't tolerate whey well, but powders are great in a pinch and while on the road (I travel for sports a lot). Anyone tried these with any success? (more)
The whey I've been using for months is usually light and airy (flour like), mixes easily, and has always tasted the same. In the last tub the powder was a bit more coarse (table salt like), didn't mix quite as well, and tasted a little different,... (more)
I am on the hunt for an un-denatured (non-denatured) whey protein that does not contain malt, as malt breaks down into MSG. My bestfriend has a neuro-degenerative disease and the diet calls for this criteria; yet I can't find a protein powder... (more)
What is the most paleo-friendly (no flavorings, etc) cold-processed(!) CFM(!) Whey Concentrate (not isolate!) out there? Ideally, a widely available brand. Thank you! UPDATE: As rightly mentioned below, CFM Concentrate doesn't exist. I suggest... (more)
I'm looking at alternatives to whey protein like Pea, Egg and Hemp proteins. I use MyProtein.com in the UK: any thoughts on the following products? http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/pea_protein_isolate... (more)
Why not just eat more meat, fish, eggs, and other protein rich foods? The paleo diet is all about eating real, whole foods not processed powders.
Simple question. Let's review the pros and cons. It would be nice to include it in the paleo diet since its so convenient. Some authors say yes, some say no since it causes insulin and is not a natural food (derived from milk). There are a bunch... (more)
Leangains suggests that for the optimal workout one should ingest 10g of BCAAs/EEAs or 30g of whey. Obviously this is not paleo. But is there any reason to reject it beyond the sensible heuristic that non-paleo things are unhealhty? I've read... (more)
Has anyone ever experienced joint pain from the use of whey protein or other dairy? I've used various forms of protein powders after working out for years but less so since moving toward a Paleo approach about 2 years ago. I've always experienced... (more)
