But Is It Paleo Questions
My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

Over the past 2-3 years, I have noticed I have developed more and more food sensitivities. It manifests itself with acne. up to a year ago, I was clear and really didn't have to pay attention to what I ate as long as it was paleo. now: the... (more)
I came across this article about Choffy, in which cocoa beans are treated and brewed in the same way as coffee beans. The website has a whole bunch about all its great effects, who knows what is really true, and I was wondering if anyone has any... (more)
Hi there, This may seem pernickety but just want to check what you all think of this product: Sunita Organic Lemon Juice I use lemon an awful lot in recipes, drinks and dressings, and I think it would work out cheaper/more convenient to buy... (more)
Most of the questions I've seen pertain to diet and exercise; I wanted to ask another question. I spend a significant amount of time at work staring at a computer screen, and that is not Paleo but also not something I am seriously trying to... (more)
Go outside, then do things out there.
While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?
Living as a college student in India with no options for choosing my meals. Given the option of eating farmed chicken vs no chicken (only eggs(farmed)) ? What is better? Almost everyone I know is either vegetarian or eats chicken only once a week.... (more)
So I have this vice--spry chewing gum. When I first made the switch to primal/paleo eating habits I used regular sugar free gum (aspartame overload!) to help deal with the sugar cravings I was having after removing all of the heavy carbs, sweets... (more)
I still purchase bottled ReaLemon lemon juice from time to time to keep on-hand (they had jugs of it on sale at Costco last time i needed any and it was cheaper than buying a pile of lemons) for cooking and splashing into water or tea. I somehow... (more)
If you don't have a sulphite sensitivity (and in truth, it's a minority who do), then polish off the bottle. If the idea bothers you, don't buy it again. Sulphite sensitivity isn't widespread.
So, this may be a slightly non-paleo question, but I think it still applies. Many members of my family visit a doctor in Largo, FL who has his own line of "health products". Grass-fed whey protein, omega-3 oil, etc. One of the things he offers... (more)
Not necessarily related to food (though it can be) but your overall Paleo lifestyle - where do you draw the line when things are "too Paleo" for you. Obviously we all have to live in 2012 (or 2013 if you want to look ahead), so many of us have... (more)
Just wondering how everyone customizes their experience. For example, I believe soy lecithin to be an unparalleled source of choline, so I add a serving a day. Also, I'm pretty sure cavemen didn't have Sri Racha, but I darned sure do. Anyone... (more)
Since it's winter, I miss hot cups of tea every morning. Since going paleo I've stopped drinking milk altogether because we can only get homogenized and pasteurized here. My mum won't buy raw grassfed because it's too expensive. I do miss tea. I... (more)
I was introduced to paleo from my friend a couple weeks back, and he explained it to me as basically just eliminating (or severely limiting) consumption of grains, legumes, and beans (foods that are "neolithic") and focusing on fruits, vegetables,... (more)
I'm curious if there is something that you've found yourself wishing you had to make Paleo decisions or questions or implementation or conversations easier to handle. Makes your Paleo LIFE just a little less of a hassle. I don't want to put in... (more)
A sustainable family farm with an orchard, cows, goats, chickens, badass garden, root cellar, maybe a trout stream nearby, no bills, no need to work outside of the home/farm, low stress.. that would be nice.
Has anyone ever tried this? I loooove duck, but haven't been able to find any around here at a reasonable price. I was hoping this could be a reasonable choice for fat. Yes, I know it's preferable to render my own, but I'd like thoughts on this... (more)
I'm not a hater and grew up a totally metabolically deranged fat kid. It took a long time of persistence and borderline OCD to overcome it I think. But I have to wonder if some of the so called "Paleo" recommendations to slash carbs or even some... (more)
Have you guys seen this new Paleobread stuff you can order (paleobread.com)? It looks pretty solid to me. No funky ingredients or anything in the coconut one. I was about to go order a bunch of the coconut bread one when all of a sudden I felt... (more)
I add this to my breakfast most mornings. I'm curious to its Paleo integrity. Made from Bio-Fermented Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice Non-GMO Hypo-Allergenic Complete Amino-Acid Profile OK, I love the stuff. It tastes great and I feel pretty... (more)
I am seeing Green Coffee Bean extract advertised everywhere now (including Starbucks.) It apparently is some sort of fat burner or something. Does anyone know what this stuff exactly is? Is it Paleo?
