Recently, having been paleo for about two years, my diet has, I might say, broken into pieces, or rather deconstructed in a sense, meaning: for dinner tonight I had oysters, almonds, a cucumber, a banana, and a couple pieces dark chocolate. I... (more)

I like this. For the first few months I ate the same meals day in and out. Not a bad thing at all, especially when your just learning best to keep it simple. But man is there a lot out there! I definitely feel like grains and legumes along with... (more)

Alright, it's lunchtime, I was late to work, didn't pack anything so had Albertson's as my only choice to get food. Not a good Albertson's. Here is what I ate : Fried Chicken Breast from Deli...skin removed. One small avocado w/2 tsp honey 1/2... (more)

I honestly don't worry about this kind of stuff. I eat as clean as I can most of the time -- hunted or grass-fed for meat, organic chicken, pastured eggs, etc. -- but I've also eaten deli chicken or fast-food burger patties when up against the... (more)

You're not at all unusual - in fact I find it perfectly consistent. The same mindset of resourcefulness and making the most of what you have (= healthy Paleo eating) has also ultimately led you to source well in your grocery shopping. Here's my... (more)

If you had a choice between eating some nuts, and eating some fruit, which would you choose? Also, which do you think is a better snack, if you only had those two choices? Just wondering what people's perspectives on this are. Thanks. :) (more)

Nuts! I just spilled coffee all over my desk. But to answer your question: Nuts!

If you want something sweet do you use real sugar or a substitute? Why do you mke the choice you do?

I refuse to use a sweetener. IMO they taste gross and I'm not looking to lose weight so who cares about the calories? Not I ;) I think if you're going to have something sweet, have the real thing. All of the fake crap available to us today is a... (more)

I'm talking fresh whole cherries, not the candied stuff in a jar. We got some nice dark red cherries from the market that are wonderful. I'm sure they have some sugar but don't they also have other good things like melatonin too? I'm just... (more)

I'm just wondering if, generally speaking, it's something to try to avoid or if it's a good choice fruit wise. You suggested that we answer this question by looking at micronutrients. But lots of fruit have micronutrients. Unless there's... (more)

The days are getting shorter, the nights longer, and the weather more cold and wet. Should there be any seasonal variations in paleo (certain foods? ratios?)? Is there anything one should have more or less of in the autumn/winter months?

It comes down to individualized goals. But as a general rule of thumb, stick to seasonal fruits and vegetables. You're right, and there has been a lot of study (especially some outstanding talks at the AHS) about the body's natural fructose... (more)

My son just turned 2 and I've been thinking it is time to start teaching him about food. I wanted to see what his "baseline" was for what he considers to be good food so I set him free in the grocery store and just followed him with a basket. In... (more)

I did. My mom was strict and raised me mostly on 'real' food (although we did eat whole grains and pasta) and I was a picky eater from age 2 or so onward - only liked what I was used to eating at home, and that was whole fruit and veg (mom... (more)

My 3 year old has a kitchenette set with all sorts of play food. I can't help but feel that if I remove the junk foods and bread products from her toy foods, through play she will learn to make healthy food choices. Then a part of me turns around... (more)

I'm not a parent or anything, but I feel like having junk toy food wouldn't hurt anything. She's not actually consuming it or experiencing the taste (or smell) so I feel like she isn't being drawn to junk food over paleo food. Making your own is... (more)

For example, salad dressing. Today at work I decided to go to the grocery store and get all the ingredients for a healthy paleo-friendly salad instead of risking it with a chain joint. I succeeded! But since I didn't have a container in which to... (more)

I would have to do the same thing you did by reading the ingredients. I would avoid garbage that I can't pronounce, then look out for sugar and grains, then worry about the type of oil. BTW, you can drizzle a salad with olive oil and vinegar or... (more)
