I am a 16 yo female, 5' 5.5", around 110lb, 14% BF. I want to gain muscle and loose fat. I workout every day, strength training (I love lifting weights) 5x a week and power yoga the other 2x. I also do HIIT or Conditioning work 3x a... (more)
I noticed a lot of "Paleo friendly" recipes use both these ingredients. Coconut oil is almost entirely saturated fat. Lets say you add something like mayple syrup and honey to your recipe. Do you think that this could be harmful? Especially in... (more)
Hey everyone. I was just wondering about cheat meals and being paleo. I am an active then girl who does paleo mostly 85-90% of the time...but sometimes, im with friends and they will have brownies or icecream and I just have to have some! I'm not... (more)
My brother bought me this awesome vegan chocolate ganache cake from whole foods for my birthday. I couldn't help myself to eating about half a slice, give or take... I know the carb count for what I have eaten is close to around 13-15 countable... (more)
Is there any kind of gum that you would be considered paleo friendly?
I buy xylitol gum for occasional use. You still need to read labels; even some touted as xylitol gum have crap ingredients.
Hey I just had a fantastic revelation paleo churros! Now I know this may sound weird to some people but give my idea a try. Go out get a bag of plain chicharrones, salted. Next get a bowl and mix some honey with a fair amount of cinnamon. Dip... (more)
are chicharrones paleo? as far as I know they're one of the most popular Mexican snacks and most likely responsible for the alarming diabetes and obesity rates that have nearly tripled for Mexico in the last decades.
So, I have become really reminiscent lately of my childhood food. As the journey continues of getting my parents to do paleo, I'd like to have them maybe be more lenient. Egyptian food is a staple for us, and it's been really easy to still eat the... (more)
Can't you reinvent the wheel a bit and just have honey, pistachios, walnuts in yoghurt, perhaps with some dried fruit and dates etc? So take the correct flavours; the bits that are real food, and rework then into something else, even if it is just... (more)
My wife's birthday is coming up in a few days & she wants a special treat. She loves Resse's Peanut Butter Cups, but since adopting the paleo lifestyle and eating habits, we have dropped these manufactured sweets from our diet and adventured... (more)
if you have a food processor, you can also make your own with coconut flakes! super cheap, though it takes a while and never seems to reach quite the same smooth consistency as the store-bought coconut butter.
Chocolate custard 1 ripe banana 2 tbsp almond butter 2 tbsp cocoa powder 1/4 cup coconut oil Splash of vanilla extract Mash banana with fork and blend in rest of the ingredients. Store in the fridge for one half hour. So good!
Someone mentioned raising carbs from VLC to LC for lethargy. It worked. Vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner with protein. Wanted a dessert so had a poached pear with a little cream, 1 Tbl nuts, cinnamon, raw cacao powder, and 1 Tbl. Dakota... (more)
I lost 40 lbs eating chocolate regularly. Sure didn't stop me! Context is also key, though. Eating dark chocolate kept me from eating larger portions of worse things. YMMV.
I was gaining or staying the same at 129 - 130 until I realized I was eating a pumpkin granola at night. (Lots of seeds and nuts.) Cut that out and started losing. I am a female over 50 and realize counting calories is also very important for... (more)
fwiw i am not strict paleo, when i was strict paleo i lost too much weight. i like to treat myself every now and then. i get bad chocolate cravings. i have tried several chocolate mug microwaveable cakes on the internet with almond flour and... (more)
paleomg has a real good chocolate one, if u add walnuts it's delicious. I think the walnut oil is the key. Google paleomg chocolate mug cake.
Anybody here ever try some of the baby food options? I was going down the isle and noticed some of the fruit ones are just the fruit no water or other additives. Thinking of things to add to my lunches as a treat from time to time. What do you... (more)
What's something delicious I can make? Looking for something to replace my night time casein and heavy cream shake... that has been ditched so I can more align myself with paleo nutrition.
My 26th birthday is next week and I want to make dessert, dang it! Now, normally i'd probably take this opportunity to make one my most favorite (SAD) desserts: German chocolate cake or homemade chocolate pie; however, I am just coming off my... (more)
I'm a college student with a mandatory 10 meals a week to spend in the cafeteria. I fast through breakfast and typically eat lunch and dinner on weekdays there. The cafeteria options are fairly decent as college goes. I can get roast turkey,... (more)
Uhh.. yes. A foie gras macaron. Actually, you can do a lot with foie - probably the best route if you want to make something on the sweet end that involves meat. Actually, if you want to play without spending a bunch of dough, sausage that you... (more)
I have been eating Paleo since about January 2011, generally around 80%, with a few weeks which occured 2-3x this year, where it was more like 30%, with the non-compliance being sugar, dessert related, a bit bingy in some instances. Before going... (more)
I think these are two different processes at work. I have found that the less sugar I eat, the less I have cravings for it. And it's true that the less sugar, the more sweet something tastes ... this is why I find my 85% chocolate delicious, but... (more)
I make little cookies out of ground macadamia nuts and butter. I add a little vanilla, stevia, cinnamon and a pinch of salt but they probably taste good plain too. Just form into balls then press then refrigerate. Alternatively you can form into... (more)
I am alergic to nuts and have tolerance issues with coconut and chocolate. Any thoughts for Paleo dessert recipes without nuts, coconut or chocolate?
Baked apples with cinnamon and honey (some cranberries are good too) Also, fresh figs..they remind me of fig newtons from my prepaleo days I'm sure others have good ideas but since I don't eat dairy that's all I got :D
I am about 3 weeks into a Paleo-ish diet that I've been placed on ( very willingly) by my naturopath. I have researched and dabbled with Paleo in the past, but this is the first time I've actually made the plunge. I have been having some... (more)
I seen a infomercial on this machine that you can put frozen fruit into and it come out like ice cream. Its called the yonanas machine(www.yonanas.com) and I know it looks corny but just wondering if anyone has used this machine and if it works... (more)
