Why not make a big batch of something and freeze it, then you only have to cook afew times a week. Can do big stew, braises, soups, ragu, anything with mince.

"Hey, do you have any fat trimmings?" usually works for me. One of four things will happen: "No, the meat is trimmed before we get it." In which case, you're SOL. "Yes, but we aren't allowed to give them to you." There are a few places that... (more)

Yes there is some validity in low carb diets and fungal infections. Check out what Dr. Paul Jaminet said about ketosis and candida: As far as low-carb ketosis goes, this is a woefully under-researched area. It???s more basic biology, if... (more)

Buy Lorna Sass' cookbooks and just leave out the beans. :) If you eat rice, risotto with veggies is awesome in the pressure cooker. Keep portions small, it's a side dish.

Mark's is the moderate, sensible voice that enrolled me into leaving SAD. He seems to understand that supplementing your whole foods with a little home-made yogurt or a piece of fresh fruit isn't a "paleo fail" that deserves a stern scolding. I... (more)

No grains? No dairy? No chemicals/preservatives? No soy? If yes to all, then you're good to go for the most part. Don't over think this whole "paleo" thing.
