Oats can be fantastic (for those that do not have intolerance). For those who are not sensitive, all the arguments against oats can be countered. *High in phytic acid*. - can be neutralized by soaking in an acidic medium with buckwheat flour... (more)

I am wondering why Oats are demonised for their high phytic acid while almonds are touted as healthy despite having the same level of phytic acid and additional anti-nutrients. Yes you can soak them but you can also do the same thing with... (more)

Hi all, I've been paleo off and on for about a year, but strictly gluten free since I began. Within the last few weeks I've really gotten much stricter about macros, whole foods, soaking any nuts/seeds I eat, etc, and I have some questions... (more)

I would say it's the move away from all non-paleo food. If a person comes to paleo from a meat-avoidant lifestyle, she feels better for a while...say, 6 months? At some point, however, the body tells us very clearly what it wants. I think we... (more)

Hi guys, how are you? Well, since I came back to the gym, I started to eat a lot more carbs and I added to my diet some oats, brown rice, sweet potatos and white potatos. I started to feel a little bloated, primary from the oats. I readed a... (more)

Even in my vegetarian days I would sometime breakfast with lentil soup. Now I am fully on the salty/savory side, and rice, natto, eggs or sardines, sprouts and olives can not be beat. So nutritious. I will add a fruit at the end, but that's it. (more)

Hey everyone, I'm trying to gain weight on paleo but everytime I go paleo I end up losing weight and end up going back to steel cut oats. Would I be better off with something like milk? I try to eat potatoes and coconut oil but steel cut oats... (more)

I think there are other ways to boost calorie intake big time without going for grains. Nuts are an excellent high fat, high calorie option that aren't super filling (as opposed to, say, meat). Eat a spoonful of almond butter or coconut oil... (more)

Is it possible to make sprouted oatmeal bread with steel cut oats? Have any of you tried something similar or any recipe ideas? If that won't work then have you tried a good coconut flour or almond flour bread recipe? I am asking so I can make... (more)

I really love pate spread on cucumbers. I take it to work, peel a cucumber at the lunch table, and make it into a "boat" to fill with pate. The light crispy crunchy cucumber is just right as a foil for the richness of the pate. Lemon zest is a... (more)

weston price really recommends this stuff if you're Scottish. Is it possible that our genes have evolved away from eating high fruit/fructose diet in the same way our skin evolved away from the climate that would offer such a diet? low carb is... (more)

I stopped worrying about carbs when I started intermittent fasting (2 meals a day, no snacks) works like a charm. I don't eat anything with fructose (except for occasionally)..I sprout and ferment my grains (buckwheat, quinoa, oats, etc) and eat... (more)

Could you all throw some suggestions at me as to what I can replace the oats with in this recipe? I am guessing it's in there for some texture as opposed to flavor so I don't think it would be missing anything flavor-wise. Any input is... (more)

It's not the gluten that'll get ya. It's the lectins. Quinoa is particularly high in toxic lectins. The most common potentially 'toxic' lectin containing food groups are Grains, especially wheat and wheat germ but also quinoa, rice, buckwheat,... (more)

I used to have oats for breakfast, I'm tempted to get back to them. I used to ear regular oats and be satiated for about 4 hours or so, which in my grain-fest-laden days, was really something. So what about gluten-free oats? They are gluten... (more)

Hm sounds like a cheating excuseI used to be addicted to oatmeal. It kept me full for a whole 30min! Why not have something with more nutrition? Oatmeal is basically empty calories. And yes, it's grains.

Let's suppose you're coming from a lower meal frequency to a higher meal frequency. The reason is, you want to bulk and gain weight. So you decide to have something like 4-5 meals a day instead of your usual 2-3. Suppose you set it at: 8AM -... (more)

I did exactly this change from 2 meals per day to 4-5 meals per day while on a highish carb paleo. I was taking about 200-250 grams of carb per day. I was also concerned while doing it that I would have a difficult time eating less frequently... (more)

I know this is subjective to body type, reaction, metabolic rate and so on, but I consider myself very healthy (pre and post paleo diet) with none of the typical irritations that require a stricter paleo adherence. I am thinking of trying to add... (more)

Oats, I think, are not so bad because they are only 1/2 insoluable fiber. Which is along the lines of what a vegetable will have. That said, I don't eat paleo (not a goal) and my similarity to paleo is in terms of being willing to use coconut... (more)
