I remember about a study that demonstrated chewing an apple brought a benefit, while consuming it without chewing did not bring that benefit. Obviously fresh is better than dried powder and organic is better than conventional but if you'll use... (more)

I was wondering, a lot of recipes that call for dates do not specify if they are dried or not. Should I presume they are not even when a step is to soak the dates? I have some kind of Dried Korean Dates in my and I am not sure if these will work... (more)

I think for athletes dates are definitely useful. For everyone else I think they are just occasional. Dates do actually have a lot of nutrition in them besides just the sugar, although not as great as foods like kale, liver, etc.

I understand that too much sugar is bad and that dried fruit/berries contain high concentrations of sugar. I also understand that dried fruit/berries are easy to overconsume. However, I'd love to have a carb filled snack that doesn't spoil within... (more)

No guys, she's referring to mycotoxins and mold which can be terrible for people on SCD or GAPS because they are attempting to heal their gut. To answer your question, cooking doesn't break down the mycotoxins but it will kill any potential... (more)

Ideally I will eat fruit in its natural state. However, I need something easy, potable and for car travel. I have measured out 1 oz nuts and wanted to put some dried fruit ( other than raisins) so how much is appropriate and are some dried fruits... (more)

If dried fruits are a frequent snack for you, you might think about getting a food dehydrator. I use ours to dry any fruits that look like they might go bad soon and I won't get to eat them otherwise (like when I buy bulk fruits from Costco).... (more)

I've only been on Paleo for about a week and a half. So far I'm living it as I swear I feel better already. Better except for one little thing. I seem to be always hungry. After a big fattening meal I'm okay for about half an hour and then I'm... (more)

I had a sweet attack and decided to be bad and ate a few sliced of dried mango. I had just landed in a new city and immediately hunted for a grocery store. I guess my craving got the better of me because I didn't check to see if the fruit was... (more)

If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to... (more)
