I recently went to my local fro-yo place and saw that they have frozen sherbet that is dairy free and gluten free. Is that considered paleo?

it probably has a lot of weird food colorings, gums, and sugars. i'd avoid it if it were me, but if you are generally healthy and not affected by junk food, then a little splurge won't hurt!

sounds weird to call a recipe "yogurt" when it's a fruit smoothie. but yes, i've been making this for years now and it's great. totally satisfies any sweet craving.

Hi. I live in Ireland too. As I understand it, farmed salmon is to be avoided at all costs. Even if it's organic, it could be fed grains which will mess up the fish's o6/o3 balance. I've seen people on paleo forums say there's nothing wrong with... (more)

Whether food has been frozen or not doesn't make it more or less paleo. Freezing is just a natural and very effective conservation technique, no more, no less. It doesn't change the actual nutrients, it just preserves them.
