I've always had trouble eliminating grains from my diet, due to the fact that it's too hard to get enough calories without them, it's hard to get enough carbohydrates with just tubers and milk, and grains take like 5-10 minutes to make aposed to... (more)

I'm a snacker, I like to have something on hand to nibble on. I don't snack on bad things (all the time) but I've been thinking about getting a dehydrator to dry some fruit. From a paleo perspective, is this a good snack? too high in sugar? worth... (more)

When I "cheat," I cheat with dried fruits -- figs, mostly. And every single time, it throws off my energy level and stalls my weight loss. If it was me, I'd try a certain amount of dried fruit and see what it does for my health and other goals... (more)

I am trying to dehydrate string beans. Trader Joe's sells dehydrated crunchy string beans that I am trying to replicate without the canola oil and tapioca starch that theirs is prepared with. I would prefer olive oil. I have a dehydrater at home,... (more)

The dehydrating alone is not making them crispy: the starch coating and frying is making them crispy. Yes, the dehydrating helps. However, the moist-and-yet-crispy bite to them is undoubtedly from the frying. Consider dehydrating them much, much... (more)

I recently started eating some of the dehydrated organic coconut I had lying around, as a snack. So has my wife. It's delicious! Then she asks a question about processing, and I honestly don't know the answer. There aren't any sneaky chemicals... (more)

I think you're safe. I don't think I've ever run across a brand that uses any kind of chemical extraction. Do you know the brand?

I just found this wonderful online company, but unfortunately most of their products are candy and nuts. However, they do offer a multitude of freeze dried fruits and veggies. Plus they have dried coconut (unsweetened!) too! Win! So I got a... (more)

Perhaps I'm being melodramatic, but it has seriously impacted my vocal performance. A little preface: I am a singer and songwriter. I have been singing basically since I was born. My mom was a hippie and played guitar and autoharp, and taught... (more)

i would say that you probably arent eating enough fat. coconut milk is only one type, and doesnt cut it for most ppl. if you stopped doing dairy, this may be why, so track down some raw dairy, butter/cream or kefir the milk. start small, see how... (more)

I noticed a few other posts on this, but has anyone found a solution for the weirdly dry mouth on strict paleo? Even my lips feel like they are cracking. No amount of extra water seems to help. Am I missing something important? I've been... (more)

For my husband in Iraq. I would love to send him some fun things but now that he's paleo, we can't make him a batch of chocolate chip cookies or whatever, I need ideas other than just a case of almonds or whatever. I'm going to make some homemade... (more)
