Hi, I accidentally bought chicken in a tomato sauce, which as I later discovered, contains wheat flour. Would washing away the sauce with hot water help, or is the chicken already contaminated with gluten and there's nothing to do?

If you don't have a gluten intolerance you will not notice much effect, but if you do, you will notice it!

Is UN-refined coconut oil likely to be contaminated with MOLD? Would REFINED coconut oil be less likely to be contaminated with MOLD? Does the refining process destroy all the goodness of unrefined coconut oil? I'm beginning a low-mold n=1... (more)

A high quality, extra-virgin unrefined coconut oil will not have mold. Since the coconuts are cold-pressed while they are fresh, not dried, and without any heat sources, the coconut oil is able to maintain its natural antibiotic, antimicrobal,... (more)

I have been feeling off for about two weeks. Sinuses, headaches, anxiety problems... I couldn't figure out why. I have celiac disease so I have to worry about gluten far more than most paleo people. I traced what changed in my diet and figured I... (more)

Hm, can you think of something else you started eating when symptoms began? For example sauces often contain wheat. This evil is pervasive. If it is definitely meat that is causing problems I can think of the following alternative sources to get... (more)

Hey guys, I've been looking into buying bulk with the ridic prices at places like Whole Foods and how little it really is when you use it all the time for cooking. I found a really cool restaurant supply store that sells things in bulk. The... (more)

It could be that they put that warning label in the bulk package because the plant the flour was milled in also mills other things. For example, Bob's Redmill's gluten free products are milled in a completely gluten free facility, and the rest of... (more)

When traveling to certain foreign countries, tourists are warned NOT TO DRINK THE WATER. However, it turns out we import fruits and veggies from those very same countries. Didn't they water their veggies with water? What am I... (more)

Everyone should be concerned...not just paleos. The fracking chems are going to get into the ground water...it can't be helped...and liberated gas which isn't captured will leak into the air...which is why they passed the exemptions. From there,... (more)

Here at home my mother loves making pork and beans. I don't eat the beans but i'll devour the pork. The pork however still has the bean sauce on it, should I avoid this and wash it of or will it do no harm to me? (I handle carbs and gluten very well) (more)

Has anyone ever gotten salmonella poisoning or something similar on the paleo diet from eating good quality grass fed meat, or fresh seafood? How did you deal with it? Was it chronic or mild, and did you use anti-biotics, over the counter drugs,... (more)

Never. I eat my grassfed beef cooked to 140 degrees. I eat most of my eggs raw in a goat milk shake (goat milk also raw). Most of my eggs come from a nearby farm. I usually skip the whites due to the antinutrients though. Been doing this for 3+... (more)

I am gluten intolerant, so I have to take gluten-free supplements. So far the best ones I've found are New Chapter and Country Life. Freeda makes a gluten free line, too, but I haven't tried them. Some of them claim to be gluten-free on the label,... (more)
