Ok so, I've been eating a very strict paleo for a month. Not whole 30, but lots of protein, veggies (broccoli, cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash, zucchini, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage- all vegetables available, I eat it) all mixed differently to... (more)
So when the recipe states "keep vegetables submerged" does that mean that there should be no vegetables at the surface even if they are within the water and sticking out a little at the top? Also, should I be concerned with airtightness? Should I... (more)
I tried making my own kefir coconut yoghurt using the body ecology starter and following the instructions that came with it but the yoghurt just doesn't get thick enough. Any suggestions from people that have done this before. I'm just using... (more)
My homemade yoghurt is never as thick as the store bought. Gelatin works to thicken it, just make sure you buy quality gelatin. Let it sit in the coconut water to bloom, then heat.
Hi, I am considering Green Pasture's FCLO after reading so many great things about it. (Still skeptical though after reading Jaminet's views) Just curious if anyone in US orders it from any other website than Green pasture or amazon. Do you have... (more)
Most Paleohackers are familiar with the drawbacks of the store-bought cow milk. But if one were to culture it with kefir or good bacterias, what are then the final outcome for your health? Please give a balanced opinion with both positives and... (more)
Hi, I know I have a leaky gut and candida. I've been treating the candida for over 6 mo now. I react to a lot of foods by acne/breaking out. I have been drinking water kefir without any problem. I had a problem with most veggies, but Betaine... (more)
Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Blue Ice Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend and just the plain Fermented Cod Liver Oil? Are there are benefits for one over the other? I see that the butter oil blend is specified as a gel... (more)
But I am very allergic to milk and soy, & I cant stand saurkraut! I saw some non dairy yogurt but it had 'locust bean gum' and also kombucha with a ton of added sugar :/ Still I would like to start cooking some probiotic foods for myself. And... (more)
I just tried to do the potato diet for 3 days, and now am having to stop due to painful cramps, etc. I think the food has fermented in my stomach or something because I keep belching (a horrible smell), my stomach hurts, and my stools are not... (more)
I'm looking for some good digestion super-boosting fermented foods at whole foods. What's at the top of your list? I've been frequenting the Bubbie's Pickles and Sauerkraut and KimChi.
hey guys, i've been going through my current foods list and i think i've cut out all foods that are either unnecessary or harmful (wheat, grains, etc.). i'm also cutting out all fruits to eliminate as much fructose as possible here's what i've... (more)
hi ph, my mom is old school korean and makes her own soy sauce from scratch. when it's fermenting, the soy looks and smells really bad. ha, my non asian friends in high school made fun of me b/c it looks like little towers of dried poo. anyhow,... (more)
(I tried to search for an answer to this; while there are numerous questions about Kombucha, I was unable to find the answer). I thought perhaps it stated this so the stuff at the bottom wouldn't get mixed in. Though I have yet to see a... (more)
Is it worth it to spring for the Fermented Cod liver oil (Green Pasture Fermented Cod Liver Oil) vs the normal Carlson cod liver oil? (Carlson cod liver oil) Anyone have any firsthand experience? I've read conflicting thing about Carlson's... (more)
Ive been tryign to eat sauerkraut for awhile now plain and i HATE it. Eating it is a chore.. so eventually i stop eating it. Im hesitant to put in on/in my regular meals. Do you get the most benefit from probiotic foods when they are eaten... (more)
Ok, first lemme give you a +1 for asking. So here's the deal. My rule: you don't like it? You don't eat it. If you're intrigued and wanting to experiement? Do it. Experiment still a big fail-eo? That's cool, move on to the next item. Fermented... (more)
Im trying to narrow down an effect Ive been experiencing as of late. Ive been taking two gel caps of fermented cod liver oil on certain days that seems to coincide with a very relaxed and low energy state. I normally sleep 6.5-7.5 hours per... (more)
I have to believe iodine and selenium is fairly important especially if consuming goitrogens and fermented vegetables. My husband and I were consuming about 1-2 pounds of COOKED goitrogenic vegetables per day with no supplemental iodine or... (more)
For me (a person with lifelong thyroid disease) the challenge in discussing things like iodine, selenium, and goitrogens is this: what may be most appropriate for a given individual with thyroid trouble depends very much on the nature of that... (more)
I really want to try kombucha and water and/or coconut kefir but for some reason I have a hard time getting myself to try them. I think the idea of eating something fermented grosses me out. My other experiences with fermented foods are... (more)
I know that heating does, but what I would like to know is if adding lemon juice to my kefir/yogurt will cause similar effect? Protein becomes denatured by both heating and adding some acid to it and that made me wonder.
Hey everybody, I've been fermenting some kraut at home, and I want to saute some of it with onions, apples, etc. Will this cooking kill off the good bacteria that I worked so hard to ferment? IOW do you only get the benefit if you eat the kraut... (more)
Kerrygold is to butter as ___ is to sauerkraut? Are there any Paleo-Friendly (or sort of friendly) sauerkraut brands? Or is it a make it yourself kind of deal? Feel free to include other fermented foods other than just sauerkraut. (more)
From my experience, "Bubbi's" brand is pretty good for "living" pickled things, including sauerkraut and pickles. Only problem is that it's not cheap. You can find them pretty easily, Whole Foods, etc. Just look in the refrigerated section where... (more)
I have some corn flour that has been treated with lime water. This is supposed to break down the kernel and help increase the bioavailability of many of the vitamins, especially B3. If I were to take this flour (also called masa harina) and soak... (more)
I'll be honest... personally it does worse things to my gut that gluten. So I avoid it, no matter how traditionally prepared. Then again, I do OK on WAPF style soaked beans which I know messes other people up. Try it and see.
