Can't say that there is really anything wrong with brown rice. Its very starchy so it should help provide you with carbs for the day and it also is pretty rich in minerals and B-Vitamins. A lot of people in the paleo community avoid it because... (more)

Homemade Kefir does taste of yeast. That's because store-bought Kefir doesn't include yeasts due to their alcohol creation. These beneficial yeasts are great, but if you can't get past the taste stick to Lifeway. http://kefirprobiotic.com/ (more)

Rice bran oil is popping up everywhere - is it a thumbs down from the Paleosphere? It is stable at high heat, but I suspect it has the same problems as 'seedy' oils. Avoid at all costs? I submit to the wisdom of the Jedi Masters.

Fats are on a continuum. Rice bran oil is about 33% PUFA, so it's better than something like soybean oil or corn oil but worse than beef tallow or coconut oil.

I used to nibble on mine when I was younger until they'd break off. Looked pretty ugly. Then I started applying a coat of nail polish topcoat (clear) because it tastes awful and acted as a deterrent to biting them.
