Many doing a Paleo lifestyle do not have any dairy or only raw grass-fed dairy products. If you know you tolerate dairy then cheese once in a while won't kill you. I don't know what Paleo recipes you're reading that call for Swiss cheese though. I... (more)

We made a very nice pizza with grated cauliflower mixed up with egg to make the base, I'm sure you could find the recipe on google. Don't know about the whey cheeses though, try it and let us know how it goes!

Since all (I think) cheese is more-or-less fermented dairy, you'll be left with minimal lactose. That means you'll have only protein and fat. I'm sure different cheeses will have different fat-to-protein ratios, and maybe contain a small amount of... (more)

I was told or read a long time ago that you are not supposed to eat anything from bulging cans. I would personally throw it all out. Better to waste a few bucks then to require a hospital visit, which would cost a lot more. Just IMHO.

Raw means not pasteurized. I don't have a publix near me, but it looks like a normal grocery store chain, so I doubt it. You'd have to be in a state where it is legal. Here is the Weston A. Price foundation's real milk finder. I think you'd be... (more)
