I've never used tapioca sticks/noodles, but hu tieu (the dish + what these are for) is sort of like pho's crazy cousin... It's basically noodles in a pork and seafood broth, garnished with herbs (mainly garlic chives and chinese celery I... (more)

So I'm aiming to become HEALTHIER to have better skin, better body, better growth, etc. Then I came across the Paleo Diet. I felt like my meals and snacks were unhealthy. You'll see what I mean here: Breakfast: -1-minute Quaker Oatmeal with 1/2... (more)

I wish I had known about the importance of healthy fats when I was younger and was blimping out. I grew up in the "low-fat is good" era and was 20+ pounds overweight. I'm almost 50 and I weigh 118. My meals now are mostly healthy fat, veggies... (more)

You say you are interested in paleo, yet I don't think you really are.

mmmmm msg. They put flour and sugar in sauces and soups without telling you, too. And soy, soy everywhere. I wouldn't even try, honestly.

I have been reading about how Paleo or Whole 30 has helped some folks control their diabetes (be it Type 1 or 2). Now, mine is a slightly different case. I'm a 26-year-old Malay Singaporean woman. I only discovered the Paleo way of eating about... (more)

DKA sounds to me like T1 diabetes. In practice it takes very little endogenous insulin production to put a "brake" on ketoacidosis, very few T2 (even those with very broken endocrine systems) ever experience DKA. I am pretty certain that your lack... (more)

I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups. I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't... (more)

I stopped into a big Asian market here in NYC today. Quite the spectacle, very impressive. The problem is that a huge amount of the merchandise has ingredients that are not Paleo compatible. I thought there would be a large variety of seaweed and... (more)

Okay, so I've read a lot of the research about why soy is bad, and while I'm somewhat convinced, I still don't think anyone has properly addressed the "Asian argument", ie the fact that a lot of traditional Asian diets contain a lot of soy. For... (more)

Edamame is steamed, and not eaten raw which would be extremely unpalatable.

Simple - The asian diet is low in fat. The Asian Food Pyramid serves best to point out the flaws in Paleo logic. Any diet that works is low in (blood) sugar, period, that's the golden answer. Paleo, Atkins, Asian, Mediterranean, South Beach,... (more)

How do you know if a food is organic/wild/grass-fed at Asian markets such as meat, seafood, and produce?

I guess its because I have always lived near a coast that I've never had this problem... I catch my own fish shrug Trader Joes has a good frozen fish selection, but then again Trader Joes isnt an Asian market. I am with Frank on this one. (more)

I am assuming that you mean Ranch 99 and I doubt anything there is organic. If you go to their deli section you will sometimes find free range chicken (or at least they say it's free range). However, even that is full of MSG.
