Why not coconut flour instead of rice flour? I mean if you're using rice flour, it's basically the same as plain white flour that you find in regular carrot cake (don't tell me it's magically better because it's gluten-free, cake flour barely has... (more)

peas are, botanically speaking, legumes. Thus many will tell you they are shunned and totally un-paleo. I think that is ridiculous. Peas are literally loaded with nutrients, a great vegetable source of iron and calcium. A true, fully... (more)
