So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (more)
I started paleo strictly for weight loss. I am not lactose or gluten intolerant. In fact, while eating SAD I felt great and was in good health, I just have a pesky 10-15 pounds I would like to shed. The question- cheese being low carb, should I... (more)
So I've been a cheese and carb-lover my entire life. Going Paleo is for me currently, not just a diet (I need to lose about 50 pounds) but it's a way to help me maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life. I've been in the process of going... (more)
I'm constantly getting mixed messages about milk and dairy. Some seem to think anything from whole milk to gouda is acceptable, others insist that dairy is evil and won't even touch butter... Now butter... isn't that taking it a little far? Who... (more)
Hi all, I know cheese and dairy in general are a gray area in Paleo. However, should you decide for its consumption, what types of cheese are in terms of macros the most interesting? I am aware its best to have cheese made from raw, full-fat... (more)
I can't stop snacking on several hundred calories worth on cacao a day. Specifically, I consume lots of chocolate cheese. (I melt the bakers chocolate in a fondue set and then pour it over a wheel of Brie cheese.) Sometime I layer it on cheddar... (more)
Are you gaining weight? If not, rock on. Cheese and unsweetened chocolate aren't the types of foods associated with deleterious metabolic outcomes.
So, I've always been open to eating avocados, nuts, etc...but the idea of eating lots of animal fats, full-fat dairy (I tolerate it digestively), and butter just seems crazy to me! For example I use caloriecount, and if I eat full-fat cheese, I... (more)
So...I found a recipe for Carrot Green (aka Carrot Top) pesto that I REALLY want to try making because I really want to try using my carrot greens. However, all the recipes that I have found use parmesan cheese (as a traditional pesto would). As... (more)
I just started my second batch of sauerkraut (so I had a starter batch) and let it to ferment for a while. When it started, all the cabbage was submerged but I checked it today (I estimate about 4-5 days since it started) and not only was the top... (more)
I have developed a strange addiction to Camembert. It is made from pasteurized milk (bad) but from French cows (A1) but not grass-fed (bad again). This is my only vice and I am having a hard time breaking this addiction. Please tell me... (more)
I tried searching this site as well as Google but couldn't find what I was looking for. Dairy doesn't seem to bother me so I had a question about cheese. A vendor at my local farmers market sells a Raw Milk Cheddar and an Aged Sharp Cheddar (Aged... (more)
I'd go with the aged cheese as it contains lots of K2.
Do you British guys/gals know any good online sources of unpasteurized cheese that deliver within UK? I tried the 2 cheeses on red23 which were nice but can't find much else through google, would like a bit of variety I did notice the pre grated... (more)
Sainsbury and Tesco both sell unpasteurised cheese (both do cheddars from Canada, if I recall correctly, and Sainsburys has some other unpasteurised french cheeses.
Vegans eat this shit up: http://vegweb.com/recipes/raw-cashew-cheeze http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1XOpiZspZc Has anyone made this stuff before or tasted it? More importantly, does it pass the taste test for cheese (I don't believe a word that... (more)
I am new to Paleo, but have done low carb for many years (and have fallen off several times because let's face it, LC just gets boring after awhile). A Paleo approach seems like a much more sustainable lifestyle and one that I can maintain since... (more)
Personally if you don't have an issue with dairy then cheese should be fine. I get the desire sometimes I feel like I need the good bacteria and enzymes from cheese so I too go with a goat cheese or goat yoghurt or find some really good artisan... (more)
I have been getting paleo diet delivery from The Primal Plan, and have been pretty much eating 100% paleo. I am now craving some cheese on my eggs in the morning. I always used to add a sharp cheddar because it was my fav . Is there a different... (more)
Hello Everyone, I am fairly new to Paleo and would love if you could recommend cheese and butter types/brands that are Paleo friendly? I shop at Whole Foods but frequent Trader Joe's when I get the opportunity. Additionally, what would you say... (more)
I was wondering if blue cheeses are perhaps harmful to gut bacteria by nature of their molds or if the amount is so small that it doesn't matter.
I have been paleo for four weeks now and have avoided all kinds of cheese thinking it is a big no no But the more i read and the millions of recipies on the internet include cheese. Some books include cheese and some say avoid all dairy. I am so... (more)
I can't seem to find any information on the K2 content of cheeses other than the well-known French, Dutch, and English ones. I love Limburger, but some of the posts here say that Germany doesn't usually grass feed their dairy cows. Does anyone... (more)
i wanted to know that does curds,yoghurts,cheese slice,cheese cubes..get spoilt without refrigeration...i wanted to carry out with me like yoghurts and cheese ..to eat every 2-3 hours as a snack..travelling nd all i do alot..so is it safe if i eat... (more)
I answered a similar question yesterday about boiled eggs, where my opinion was "not safe"--but these are different. Yogurt and cheese both represent food preservation techniques. Yogurt has beneficial bacteria that out-compete harmful ones and... (more)
Alright here is my question(s) is it a good idea to binge once a week as some sources suggest or not? I usually do a binge meal once or twice a week while eating within appropriate Cal during the week the binges usually go above 1500 calories plus... (more)
What are your top five most tolerable forms of dairy? I know this is an individual subject and a decent idea of what I tolerate, but am still interested in what others are tolerating. For the sake of simplicity let's exclude A1 vs A2 cow derived... (more)
I use grass-fed products so I don't really know if I can tolerate non-grass-fed. That being the case, while I'm lactose and whey intolerant, I have no problems with ghee, butter, whipping cream, and hard cheeses. I don't use them much though. Raw... (more)
