To make your own scrub you can use the ground beans for filter coffee after making coffee out of them. It's not as strange as it may sound and you wont end up smelling like coffee :)

What is vegetable glaze? Saw it in a magnesium supplement. Can't find a thing on it.

Vegetable glaze is more commonly known as Shellac. Many companies are looking to replace ingredients that are unknown, or have a bad name with a new term (have you ever seen "evaporated cane juice"? Sounds like sugar to me). Shellac is... (more)

Good for you Heather! Remember too that the "building blocks" of neurotransmitters are (mostly) amino acids (protein) so make sure you are eating a lot of protein. I personally would shoot for 1gram a day per pound of desired body weight and I... (more)

Bigos (Hunter's stew) is a good one. Lots of recipes call for flour or sugar/dried fruit and this one's pretty clean and tastes great. I might throw in a few dates at the start if I have them as the flavor they lend is fabulous. There are... (more)

Arrowroot is pretty amazing for thickening. Looks just like cornstarch. Wheat-free Tamari for soy sauce. You could probably make up some fish sauce using the Tamari and various fish extract/concentrate/flavoring products.

List some things to avoid. There are some really obvious ones, like sugar and fructose and MSG, but what about the sneaky ones, that aren't well known or talked about much? I'm thinking about odd chemical names, and things I've never heard of. ... (more)

IMHO, you should avoid all foods that have "ingredients."

I'm trying to make pad thai and need something that tastes similar to molasses, but without all the sugar. Any ideas?

I would use a blended date or another dried fruit that is sweet without tartness. Alternately, you could use a tart dried fruit (like apricot) and omit the tamarind.

You're not at all unusual - in fact I find it perfectly consistent. The same mindset of resourcefulness and making the most of what you have (= healthy Paleo eating) has also ultimately led you to source well in your grocery shopping. Here's my... (more)

I know this may seem obvious but if you have kids, watch our for any play-doughs or other art supplies.

Cooking paleo makes me be more creative in a kitchen. I use more herbs, more spices, find interesting ways to use eggs, etc. What's the most creative/adventurous paleo thing you've made?

paleo has had the opposite effect on me. less spice, less herbs, less onion and garlic, no condiments. plain whole food tastes just fine to me.

Eh I do a blend of both. As much as I would love to eat all whole/real foods, I do enjoy my almond milk and a few random things that require checking labels. For the most part it's meat, fat and veggies..but heck, I ain't perfect.
