There are so many blogs out there with tons and tons of paleo baked goods. Most of the time the pictures are great, the writer raves about the goodies/bread/what-have-you ('even my picky husband couldn't stop eating them'), and so you assume they... (more)

Just remember, these items are not something that should be a big part of what you eat every day.  You should eat: meat, eggs, fish, veggies, and a bit of nuts.  Bread isn't the staff of life, it's the cause of disease.   These... (more)

Is there anything we should be eating our seafood/Omega-3s with to increase absorption?

Only thing I can think of would be digestive enzymes containing lipase such as ox bile, but if you've got a working gallbladder, liver, and pancreas, you already make enough.

Eating Paleo for a while will eventually cause some degree of insulin resistance as your body gets better adapted at using fat for fuel instead of using lots of glucose. Unfortunately, that means when you do eat a bunch of carbs at once, you can... (more)

I think your meals look great. That doesn't look like a lot of calories though, which is probably why you're munching on bars a lot. I also love veggies and greens but all by themselves they don't have a lot of calories.  You could try... (more)

Regarding LOW CARB PROTEIN BARS. I figure this is the lesser of two evils. I enjoy sweets every so often and LOVE the 'P45 High Protein Low Carb' bar by MUSASHI (90g). It contains 45g of protein, 2.3g of carbs, 6.8g fat, and 335... (more)

In the Paleo Dessert Obsession book, the Chocolate Pecan Truffles recipe does not specify how much/what kind of chocolate to use. Am I missing something in the recipe? Please advise. Thank you!

The general answer is that there's no limit on how much fat you can eat. If you eat the diet for a while you'll basically self-regulate yourself. When I first started I had rib-eye steak all the time.  But after a while I got sick of it and... (more)
