For beef, marrow bones, pot-roasted cuts (especially chuck), and don't forget offal (heart, kidneys, liver). But even lean cuts will be appreciated by your paleo customers - I think the most important you can do is emphasize how healthy and... (more)

I agree with everyones posts. I just wanted to add a little side note. It does it get easier but if you still get a hankering for something sweet every now and then. Try some of the dessert recipes online but as a rule of thumb try to avoid... (more)

Those foods are loaded with all sorts of interesting man made addictive flavor components such as MSG. You're just getting rid of your addiction, that's all. Stay away from them. Try some bacon, home made mayonnaise (make it with EVOO or EVCO... (more)

The standard answer is to avoid carbs, but I had the opposite experience -- going very low carb is what started my yeast problem to begin with. There is some information about that on the Perfect Health Diet blog. Magnesium and vitamin C... (more)

I'm not sure you should even want an explicit list. Learning the basics of metabolism and human health is much more useful, as it scales to any future food and covers ambiguities that a list can not handle. I've always walked backwards... (more)

CRP definitely goes up after intense exercise (see here for example, where they found triathlon competitors having almost a 300% rise in CRP 24 hours later). Still, that's a really high level, so I would definitely do a retest on some week where... (more)
