Hi glib, thanks for your answer. I agree that the fiber in grass wouldn't be fermentable, probably a good thing because if it was, you would probably have something which resembles wood alcohol and that wouldn't be good for us or the cows.... (more)

Paleo can be a great complement to Atkins.  Atkins is about controlling carbs, replacing them with adequate protein and lots of fat.  The issue I have with Atkins is that quality of food does not matter, and if you traverse the low carb... (more)

Vanilla extract is indeed quite strong - it's usually made in hard liquors such as bourbon. I've seen them range from 70-80 proof. Fortunately it takes very little to give its flavor.  Little enough that I personally wouldn't be too woried... (more)

If I were in your position I would try to contact California's EPA and see if they have any data regarding the levels of selenium in the geese, rather than give up on the idea.  It would be interesting to see the levels as compared to say... (more)

Hi @sunnyla1978! The corn in them makes them a non-paleo treat.  But you could use it as a cheat meal if you need a cheat meal and are paleo and go by the 80/20 rule. Personally I use the 95/5 rule, meaning I try to eat paleo 100 percent of... (more)
