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)

For general health, and following paleo-ish dietary principles, you would substitute nothing for grains or beans. There are many ways to eat much healthier food than grains or beans. Eat real food: meats, fish, veggies, tubers, fruits, nuts,... (more)

So here's an interesting question in regards to the proper preparation of grains as espoused by the WAPF. The WAPF suggests that properly preparing grains involves soaking and allowing the natural phytase to break apart phytic acid in the grains,... (more)

Why do you need binders to make portable foods? Cut up the foods that you are eating into "baby" size portions, and give him that to eat. No need to make nuggets or crackers yet.

If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.

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?

7d0c3ea9bf8be00b93e6433d8f125ac3
Olivia 0 · May 14, 2011 at 2:05 PM

No. Digestion entails the breaking down of proteins into their constituent amino acids which can be used to create new tissue, cellular repair, etc. Ingested proteins aren't absorbed and used whole by the body.
