The reason I hear most for why grains are bad is that they contain anti nutrients. Grains are seeds and since it is disadvantageous for them to be eaten (they can't reproduce that way) they evolved to contain anti nutrients to stop animals from... (more)

You know it just occurred to me that cows aren't paleo. They eat their grass seeds and all. This is really serious stuff. It calls the whole premise into question. This aggression will not stand, man.

Drink lots of water to help your body detox itself from the grain load, and go back to clean eating as always. Everything will go back to normal(:

I'm allergic to coconut and almond. Try hydrated chia seeds or grinding up equal chia and flax, adding a but of hot water to gel.often that combo is used to replace xantham gum.

Pigs are omnivores, they'll eat just about anything. Ask him if the grain is non-GMO, which is about as important in a pig as grass-feeding a cow.

PUFA is very low (fractions of a gm) for bison and beef regardless. It's not an efficient source of Omega 3's. It's the balance of O6/O3 that is desirable in Grass Fed meat, it's less biased toward O6. From the USDA NAL Database: Bison,... (more)

If an animal is fed a grain-based diet and thus ingests its gluten content, and gluten is a protein composite, and proteins compose the meat that we can consume, isn't it a viable assumption that gluten is contained in these meats?
