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!

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)

I've heard that some salmon is just tilapia (which is ridiculous). I can get these frozen packages of salmon for about $1.30 for 4 ounces of salmon. That's about $5.20/lb. Is this too good to be true? Here's their site. http://yiheseafood.com/ (more)

"some salmon is just tilapia" is the scariest thing I have heard all day. is there labeling that differentiates it? Something like they do with Surimi or Krab?

I usually give it a couple weeks at most. Of course, this is from a guy that thinks that as long as it doesn't move and say "Daddy" when you look in the container, it's edible. So your mileage may vary. :)
