I am fully Paleo and I avoid processed and junk food as much as I can. I don't particularly miss any junk/processed food... except Tang that is. I feel nostalgic about it. Don't you think the rare Tang (say, once or twice a year) treat is that bad... (more)

Just add almond meal until you get to your desired consistency. I don't have a recipe for meatloaf, as what I put in in changes each time.  1 pound ground beef, 1 egg, black pepper, tomato paste, fish sauce… mix and then add almond... (more)

Yeah eating out is definitely out of the question if you are going for a Paleo diet as a student. I started Paleo after I graduated and I honestly cannot imagine how I would cope sticking with the Paleo diet during my student career. I... (more)

I can't have coffee out any more unless I carry along my own coconut milk.  I used to love to treat myself to a cup of coffee every once in a while--cheap fun and always tastes better than my coffee at home.

Creatine is fine, but follow the correct dose and make sure that you cycle it.   Prolonged use can affect your liver and kidneys

If you're OK with dairy there's always butter and ghee.  Seek out butter from pastured dairy sources to maximize Omega 3's.  Butter has some MCT's but not in the same concentrations as coconut oil.

Herxheimer reactions are real things, but it's not likely you're experiencing one.  Any drastic change has the potenial to cause unpleasantness.

I tend to be a little shy about using olive oil due omega 6 being about 9% so I worry I'll mess my 6n:3n ratio if I go over board. I tend use coconut oil more freely.

Olive oil is the only oil I use. 10% PUFA, 10:1 omega-6:omega-3… perfect? I think so!  Usually 3-4 tbsp a day.
