Some may consider me to be lacking knowledge on this subject however I wish to ask whether sweetcorn is considered to be "paleo"?
I would also like to ask if anybody else has experienced stomach problems with regards to consuming grains? I ask as I have experienced some awful stomach upset after partaking of such a concoction as a Flapjack Mars Bar Cake.
You want to blame paleo eating for stomach trouble from eating something called a "flapjack mars bar cake"? Hmmmm.
I am a bit more sensitive to some grains now but find I can eat GOOD QUALITY bread, cake,etc without issue. I know I'm not the only one who has found that the quality of the grain. We are speculating a lower gluten content at play and/or a higher quality oil is what makes all the difference. In my case I can eat 2 huge morning buns from the lovely french bakery down the street and feel great. I eat 3 bites of a doughnut from the everyday doughnut shop a few doors down and it's all over. Allegedly.
Corn is not paleo, but it's a gluten free grain, and sweet corn is a delicious, typically local and seasonal whole food, so I would certainly indulge a couple of times in a summer and not worry about it.
You are getting the wrong end of the stick. I have been eating strictly paleo for a while and when I had some grains in the form or a flapjack mars bar cake I got some stomach upset, just curious if anyone else has experienced this after returning to trying grains? Thanks for the edit. Overly patronising don't you think?, Ok thanks for the answer @alvaro I appreciate the reply :) Have a good weekend guys
My disgust on the thought of eating something like that isn't a personal attack on you, but I'm sorry if my comment came off that way. It isn't that I never "cheat" or that I keep strictly Paleo, or that I judge you for your "cheats", it's just that most junk food stuff really gets me. If you had said Cheetos, a Big Mac, or Kit Kats, my reaction would be the same, as would it would be the same if my own mother had said that. My "cheats" are still generally quality foods, just ones that contain grains or beans. But your "cheats" are completely up to you and everyone has different cravings.
I haven't eaten a cake like that, but from the name it sounds like a quite sweet dessert. I don't know that the grains would be particularly bothersome unless you have an allergy/intolerance, but if you have been eating Paleo for a while, it could just be the sugar, not the corn grain. I think that a big load of sugar would be more likely to upset my tummy than some corn.
No worries @luckie, My mum has made it once a year for as long as I can remember so, I thought why not but after the after effects, I will be staying well away, yea I was thinking the sugar or what ever the other crap my mum stuffs into it, I'm going try to make a paleo friendly wannabe mars bar cake, dates for the caramel effect high% cocoa, with a base I guess of ground almond/ coconut maybe a caramelbounty bar haha (letting my imagination run wild)
I consider corn to be a starch similar to a potato, even though it's a grain. You don't have to soak it, ferment, or pulverize it in order for it to be rendered edible, you just have to heat it up.
Throwing a couple of ears on the grill, still wrapped in the corn silk and husk, is an incredibly easy and near-Paleo way of eating it. If cavemen had had access to it, they would have eaten it like they would have eaten tubers and root vegetables.
