Where do you buy coconut oil? I found a recipe for Paleo cookies and it calls for coconut oil. However, I am unsure where to purchase it. When I was purchasing Almond Meal/Flour the local Super Target carried it but Cub Foods did not. I did... (more)

I want to surprise my sweetie with paleo cupcakes- preferably vanilla and i can use red food coloring (is food coloring paleo!??) and a frosting recipe, or any alternative ideas-? thanks!

Food coloring is absolutely not paleo. Heck, gluten free cupcakes, no matter the ingredients, are effectively non-paleo, faileo treats. But you know what? Who cares?! If it really is a every-great-once-in-a-while treat (weekly for some, monthly or... (more)

So I stopped using shampoo and soap. It has been a week and a half, and I have used baking soda and ACV every 3 days or so (I'm male with medium length, ultra fine hair) to deal with the intense greasy feeling in my hair. That 3rd day I wouldn't... (more)

Whoa - if you're making a paste you're using a LOT of baking soda. No wonder your head is pissed. Try diluting it way, way down - and dissolving it into hot water first. That way it's easier to disperse throughout your hair and less abrasive, and... (more)

Coconut flour is a tasty and much healthier option for regular grain flour. Also, much better than almond flour in my personal opinion. Less PUFA, and pretty high fiber, without an overly coconut taste. I have used it in breads, pancakes,... (more)

So, I fancy spicing up my egg-and-bananas diet with some real cooking, but I'm on a pretty tight budget. Which is better for cooking with (I'm also trying to be somewhat calorie concious), flaxseed or almond meal?

YoungPaleoLover 0 · June 17, 2012 at 2:25 AM

Could you get sweet potato flour instead? They are less inflammatory and not too expensive or coconut flour...almonds just have such a high omega-6 ratio. I think flaxseed should be minimized in intake as well.

Depends on your recipe, but usually it can be omitted with both coconut flour and almond flour muffin recipes. The arrowroot just gives a more fluffy and cakey texture. As long as its only a small amount called for, say less than a couple... (more)

I have never seen one study that shows fructose from fruits or honey is harmful. Even the negatives associated with white sugar pretty much disappear if you eat in a meal(i.e. baked good). Don't let the fear mongers scare you.

The answer would depend on your definition of paleo. Was our beloved grok making tasty cakes and muffins? No. So if your idea of paleo falls along those lines you're pretty much out of luck. As cliff said they are relatively harmless. Many of... (more)

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)

If you use applesauce, you will need to cut down on wet ingredients elsewhere. Use less coconut milk. Sugar caramelizes and causes browning in baked goods. It's very difficult to get both the correct texture and flavor in baked goods without... (more)

I believe the raisin skins are somewhat problematic (more skin, less meat) and its harder to get a smooth textured paste because of it. Also the date taste and overall texture is a bit more refined than that of raisins.

If baked in close quarters; small / deep dish time will need to be longer than if in a shallower dish...... but in any case 40 minutes is pretty short. check out this link... http://bit.ly/I70DmW
