Hey guys! I am new to Paleo and am having some difficulties deciding whether or not some things are Paleo. I have purchased a few books (Practical Paleo & The Paleo Primer) and one book says heavy whipping cream is not and the other uses... (more)

If you can tolerate or have no other issues with dairy then it's fine, it's kind of like butter. I would check the ingredients though. Some heavy creams have added thickeners (not paleo/primal).

I'm trying to stick to a paleo diet, and added to that I occasionally eat heavy whipcream. I find that it makes a nice dessert. Recently I bought two different kinds of the 250ml plastic containers (unwhipped), and one appears to have it's... (more)

Trans-fats occur naturally in milk. They're produced in small quantities by ruminant bacteria. Some research indicates that the particular trans-fat in this case (vaccenic acid) may even be healthy, presumably because it occurs in small quantities... (more)

The only cream I can get has carageenan and cellulose and mono diglycerides and a few other things, I've been having trouble getting enough calories. Do you think this will have any effect on my health, or should I use it to get the calories

If yes, how? Just mix the cream with water? What is your ratio of cream to water? Do you add anything else? Would love to hear ideas!

You could mix 1T heavy whipping cream with 20g casein and 10g whey protein and get something pretty descent alternative to milk for lean muscle gain (IMHO, the sugars in milk are not good for leaning out- and neither is the fat for getting a... (more)

I found this info: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/dairy-and-egg-products/51/2 but it really doesn't say specifically, it just says that its mostly fat. That said, I use heavy cream to make sour cream (GAPS) and its ferment using homemade... (more)

Has anyone ever made butter at home from heavy cream? I know you can whip heavy cream into butter with either a hand mixer or a blender like the Vitamix. But have you ever done it sorta like Mark Sisson style, where you press the buttermilk out of... (more)

I just drank a pint of heavy whipping cream and will continue to do so every day this week and report back with my results. Apparently a pint has 1600 calories in it. For that many calories, I expected it to be a lot thicker. I'm sure it will... (more)

Yeah, I did this once. A lot of people have done this in various forms. I gained about 20 pounds or so over the course of two months of dedicated overeating (zero carb over-eating, so I pounded hamburgers and heavy cream). You will have to keep... (more)

When I am in a hurry and I know I won't eat again for, say, six hours I often make a non-alcoholic version of egg nog: 4 eggs yolks, 1/2 cup water, 1+ cup heavy cream, a bit of vanilla, a packet of artificial sweetener, and a dash or two of ground... (more)
