Hey all, I created a new organic Paleo bar inspired by the ancient Mayan diet and Im doing a Kickstarter campaign on it within 2 weeks. Is this something I can share on here? Thanks!
Protein bars, energy bars
You can win an entire box of Simple Squares to try. They're Paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free. Not to mention, they're uber delicious. The perfect snack to throw in your pocket when you need an energy boost. Enter the giveaway... (more)
Does anyone have any good recipes for Paleo fiber bars or suggestions regarding pre-made store-bought fiber bars? I will be going abroad shortly to volunteer for three weeks, and people who have done similar trips have recommended stocking up on... (more)
So tonight I was bingeing. After a great paleo day I didn't feel "complete" and kept eating tahini, dark chocolate, raspberries, etc. But these "healthy treats" just didn't work! I kept going and going and couldn't stop or be satisfied. Finally I... (more)
I have done that too, and then also thought "I wish I hadn't wasted all the calorie intake to pinpoint the craving"..... but I really think it's psychological. Did you have Nutrigrain bars as a snack or reward when you were little? <3
As paleo becomes more mainstream, we see more people trying to monetize it. Previously it was mainly authors and speakers, then bloggers, and more recently branded "paleo" products. Looks like even the veteran paleo luminary Mark Sisson is pushing... (more)
I would recommend Pemmican: 4 parts dried crushed meat, 3 parts crushed dried fruit/nuts (bit more fruit, figs work well for pemmican), and enough melted tallow/fat/lard so it can solidify together - cool it in the fridge. om nom nom
What do you guys think of these new bars by Elisabeth Hasselbeck? They are labeled specifically as a Paleo Bar. They are delicious, and the ingredients look to be sound, all but the last one, which is Safflower oil. They also contain honey, but... (more)
isn't this the same road Atkins went down? It's a candy bar, even if you call it a caveman bar (or a low glycemic index meal replacement). Better than a sharp poke in the eye, I guess, but still.
I understand that alcohol isn't exactly paleo, but there are times when we are going to go drinking at a bar. I have been drinking tequila, soda, and lime so the drink itself isn't horribly un-paleo. What paleo foods do you find that work well... (more)
I have been Paleo for over a year now. Maintaining a 13% Body Fat and super happy with my lifestyle. It took me about 9 months to realize how addicted to sugar I was. Amazing. I travel internationally a lot so I have to bring my own meal... (more)
Hello all, I'm seriously contemplating working for Copa Airlines here in Panama but I know how the hours are and It's going to mess with my sleep rhythm. What suggestion would you recommend if I do take the Job? Either way if I don no take the... (more)
Do whatever will give you the most happiness, both have health challenges. Having a job you love is the sort of thing that is a boost to your happiness which is think is an important part of health :)
So I saw these at the local alternative supermarket this evening and wondered what opinions here thought of them! Given the added sugar; I won't be getting these again but I thought they were worth a look. Ingredients list is as... (more)
Inspired by an old post about whether people should eat Kind Bars (the answers is no, not really) I thought perhaps some people here have some hacks for Paleo-style energy bars for snacks and on the go meals. I am generally a meat and potatoes... (more)
One Jar of Almond butter (Blue diamond spreadable works best, other brands drain the oil) Raisins (sparsly used) 1 cup of egg whites or 3 eggs. 2 Tablespoons of shredded coconut Mix and Bake. It will seem like it won't mix originally but it... (more)
I am just curious...I was recently looking at the website for Quest protein bars, which are touted as being somewhat paleo-friendly. The site mentioned several times that the bars have something like only 4 or 5 "net carbs" which as I understand... (more)
I don't think fiber counts as carbs, it is just food for gut bacteria. It's fermented by said bacteria into short chain fats, so you can actually get a few calories from it I believe.
I just discovered this site tonight while browsing current Groupon deals - it allows you to pick single elements (almonds, almond butter, dates, cocoa powder, etc.) and assemble them for a box of individually-wrapped, customized snack bars sent to... (more)
Yeah, I thought about getting these for someone busy/special, but for that price you could get Tanka bars, which have meat in them. I'd also be more likely to get these if they had macadamia butter or coconut butter as a base. I wonder if I could... (more)
I'm a young guy and a lot of my social life centers around bars/drinking. Frankly, I really like drinking (both the physiological and social aspects of it). But I've also realized it's aggregate effects really suck, i.e. poor sleep, really bad... (more)
