I know ice cream isn't paleo but I love it so I'm going to to try and make it as healthy as possible and still eat it. Everyone has their vice. Currently doing a paleo challenge which means no dairy, dying to try this with grass fed cream once... (more)
Does anyone have any ideas for how food irritants work, i.e. according to what time schedule? e.g. if you have an upset stomach, is it usually from the meal eaten immediately prior, or sometime in the past? The reason I ask is because I am... (more)
It's been a couple of weeks since I've had a good cheat meal. Now when it's time to cheat, I don't mess around. I go for it. A few weeks ago somebody posted a picture of some H-G dude climbing a tall tree to get honey from a bee nest. Do you... (more)
There's a thread here that started the conversation a bit, but it also dealt with fruits (bananas) and honey as potential additions. Here's the deal: I'm in a stretch of very low carbing for weight loss. Animal proteins, eggs, Kerrygold, coconut... (more)

Someone posted a few weeks ago on one of the blogs that they make homemade ice cream using inulin or oligofructose to improve 'mouth feel' in low sugar ice cream; unfortunately I can't find it again. I have made ice cream with very little to no... (more)
