I know that it's paleo to use almond or coconut flour instead of regular wheat flour for baking. But in my region one cannot easily find those paleo types of flours and making flour of raw almonds or even coconuts is a crazy and expensive idea... (more)

It is expensive. It's also not really the most nutritious food (not that every bite has to be as nutrient dense as possible, but things that aren't should probably not be a daily food). If you want to have "paleo" baked goods on occasion, then... (more)

I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?

Hain makes a baking powder without corn (they use potato starch instead). You can find it at any natural food type store.

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)

The chocolate and/or cacao powder in your brownie will have the most phytic acid in it anyway (with or without the alternative flours). http://chriskresser.com/another-reason-you-shouldnt-go-nuts-on-nuts (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.

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.
