What are some good sources of folate other than leafy greens? Best I can find so far is chicken liver (or duck or other foul). Nice, because I wanted a good excuse to opt for chicken liver over beef liver now and then. I love them both. I... (more)

I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
Just got a bunch of mustard greens from my CSA share today, and I'm not exactly sure what the best paleo-friendly way to eat them would be. Any ideas? Thanks!
sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.
Are Lima beans paleo? If yes, should they need to be organic?
Hi guys and gals.. I'm buying fresh meat and vegetables at the moment which is costing me a fortune! I am going to keep up with the fresh meat but am considering buying frozen veg because it really is so expensive and also goes off so quick! Is... (more)

I've never liked vegetables a whole lot, but recently I've included more greens, like lettuce on top of my dairy and meat with nice results. Meat and dairy by themselves never worked too great for me In bulk, but adding salad greens on top seems... (more)
I have had chronic acid reflux for 10 years and am trying to figure out if I have any food sensitivities that might be causing it.
Yes you can get a pretty full spectrum if nutrients from such a diet. I would be generous with the greens and over time try to include other vegetables. You can type everything into fitday.com or similar to get the nutrients. You might find that... (more)
I eat a big ass salad almost every day with the base being baby spring mix (kale, spinach, arugula, and more) and generally top it off with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, onions, walnuts, pine nuts, sliced almonds, and some form... (more)
First heard about it from Tim Ferris, but some other folks on podcasts I listen to have also mentioned. Just curious to know if anyone can report any benefits before I consider it. Increased energy? Increased fat loss? Better sleep? etc... (more)
happy holidays everyone! So i have been taking betaine hcl (about 5,000 with each meal) and less with smaller snacks. I have h pylori and believe that is what is suppressing my stomach acid. i just bought a juicer, and have been juicing greens. ... (more)
Stats: 31, 262 lbs, female Been paleo since end of July, when I first started, I couldn't get enough greens. Like kale, mustard greens and turnip greens and the like. Even before then I loved them. Suddenly I can't eat them without wanting to... (more)
Naturally I eat my meat and fat. But what I was wondering was would I become defficient in some nutrients if all I ate was green's along with my meat and fat. I don't eat any liver or any of the other internal organs that a lot of nutrients. Thanks. (more)
I realize in the large scheme of things, any lettuce I eat probably doesn't have a huge effect on much. But I'm wondering what kind of lettuce is most popular amongst paleo types. I like all kinds of lettuce, so I purchase based on function: I buy... (more)

I live with a pescatarian, so while I'll pop meat on top of my greens, I don't like to cook greens with it. I eat a lot of greens so I'm looking for more variety.
Saute some onions and garlic in olive oil. When the onions are soft, add white wine and greens (chard, kale, etc.) and let it steam until it reached the desired texture. Grate some good parmigiana-reggiano cheese into the greens and enjoy.
I was reading: http://www.radiancenutrition.com/2011/08/19/put-down-that-kale-smoothie-why-you-should-cook-your-food/ And it made the point that cooking veggies makes them more bio available because: "Destruction of cell walls in vegetables... (more)
OK, so this is probably a stupid question. What does everyone eat as the "greens" for their salad. I grew up eating iceberg lettuce with a few tomatoes and that was considered a salad. I know that iceberg lettuce is not the best option. Lately... (more)
