To my layman eyes, the egg replacement just seems like it would act as a binding agent that adds thickness and density. Mashed bananas or applesauce will act in much the same way, and also provide the moistness that eggs would. However, the... (more)

Typically, you flavor kefir in the second ferment so you don't introduce anything potentially harmful for the culture, with a pop-top bottle for carbonation.  Or, you can ferment it in some extra grains and see how they do.  (My... (more)

Are you already including bone broth in your eating plan? Also, gelatin is easy to add to meals, or to drink in liquids. It will not only help you to increase your protein intake, it is very good to help heal a leaky gut. (more)

Hi @sunnyla1978! The corn in them makes them a non-paleo treat.  But you could use it as a cheat meal if you need a cheat meal and are paleo and go by the 80/20 rule. Personally I use the 95/5 rule, meaning I try to eat paleo 100 percent of... (more)
