If your husband is allergic to coconut, eggs, honey, and almonds, it's probably best to stay away from any "flour" type product. He can try eating rice (google rice on paleohacks), potatoes, potato starch, and sweet potatoes. Unless he's allergic... (more)

Does it have to do with the freshness of the almonds? Where they were grown? How they were grown? The type of almonds?

Almond butter is healthier. Peanuts are legumes, a post-agricultural food (not paleo), and contain more harmful lectins among other things (see link below). Peanuts have an acidic effect on the body, whereas almonds are alkalising. That said,... (more)

almond butter is a good source of selenium and other minerals but are the PUFAs a concern? i eat a couple tablespoons a day with my eggs and blueberries for breakfast. Is it healthy to eat almond butter daily?

I'm thinking the context of the rest of your diet will make the difference on this, including how much almond butter.

The issue with coconut flour and almond flour is that they do completely different things. Coconut flour absorbs a LOT of liquid, and almond flour does not. For reference, actual grain flours fall somewhere in between the two. Elana of Elana's... (more)

Quinoa works for a light matzahball. I like the texture better when its not ground up since it creates a lighter ball. I'd add cooked mushrooms and schmaltz too it for extra flavor. You also might be able to make a ball out of potatoes. (more)
