I've never bought nor eaten cassava/yucca before, but due to its low cost, and calorie+nutrient density, I'm thinking of making it my main starch source, along with bananas and plantains. I've been trying to get away from white potatoes as they... (more)

I'm currently on a LeanGains clean bulk, which calls for well over 400g of carbs on workout days, low fat. Eating that much carbs on paleo/primal is a challenge for me. I rely on sweet potatoes, and have white rice occasionally. I've tried... (more)

How about something with mochi? I eat rice regularly and will do some traditional Japanese sweets on occasion. Or, I'll make mochi "dumplings" and plop them into soup with bone broth and some other vegetables. If you're up for some noodles, how... (more)

Do you feel hungrier or more satiated on a high carb paleo diet? I'm on a medium carb somewhat eating potatoes, taro, sweet potatoes and cassava.

You've gone the distance and have committed to eating clean because it makes you feel better but then you are questioning your body's hunger. If you are hungrier and you are eating whole foods then listen to your body and eat more. It's likely you... (more)

Ok, so the idea of pizza is not inherently very paleo. But some dinner ideas die hard. I gave up on trying to make good replacement bread pretty early on. But pizza...I'm still trying to make it work. Someone recently asked me to post the recipe... (more)

Diced cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, and one egg. Baked with no toppings at 350 for 12-15 min to make the crust, well, crusty. Add the toppings and return to oven for 10 min or until all items are sizzling or browned.

:( people, whether or not something is paleo or not has absolutely nothing to do with the presence of food toxins or whether or not it can only be consumed cooked. There is ample evidence that early humans ate foods with ample amounts of toxins... (more)

It's a starch that comes from the cassava root, so it is technically "paleo," though it's awfully processed. It's one of those foods that isn't blatantly poisonous but definitely isn't optimal as a dietary staple, and as I recall the root itself... (more)

Yes, it is good. And no you cannot just use boiled yucca. Traditionally the recipe actually calls for fermented tapioca flour.. but just regular will do. It is worth the effort.
