There are so many blogs out there with tons and tons of paleo baked goods. Most of the time the pictures are great, the writer raves about the goodies/bread/what-have-you ('even my picky husband couldn't stop eating them'), and so you assume they... (more)
I recently found a recipe for paleo bread which calls for palm oil. Can I use coco nut oil instead. I don't think palm oil is that healty.
My friends birthday is coming up and she wants me to make her super healthy brownies. I'm trying to make them as paleo as possible, but I want to make sure she loves them. She loves dark chocolate. If I make her anything, it has to include dark... (more)
So I absolutely LOVE the scottish buttery shortbread cookies, OMG. However, I want to find a primal recipe that doesn't use almond flour, only coconut flour, any ideas/suggestions?
hi there, i bought these cod roe: http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/sainsburys-price-comparison/tinned_fish/john_west_cod_soft_roes_100g.html having never eaten them before, i literally haven't a clue what to do with them? whether i have to even... (more)
My son is turning 4 and is having a bacon and lumberjacks themed birthday party. It should be great, but I am just seeking out a recipe for a bacon dip that would work with veggies and plantain chips. There's lots of dips out there, but we are... (more)
I love paleo because I can indulge in my favorite food, animals! But I have to admit I miss fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. So, the question is what is your ultimate paleo dessert recipe mine is: One banana, two tablespoons of... (more)
It stares at me every time I open the freezer, passing it by for something more obviously enjoyable. I have decided to face it and try it out. I know I recently read some article in the paleosphere about a delicious tongue recipe, but I don't... (more)
I want to make my brother pumpkin pie and apple pie, but he has a severe nut allergy. I've made him paleo muffins with coconut flour before that have turned out well but I cannot seem to get a good pie crust using just coconut flour. Does anyone... (more)
What is your best fall squash recipe using these squashes? I just bought an acorn squash, butternut squash, and spaghetti squash. I wanted to possibly bake them with some cinnamon, but I was wondering, do you get rid of the outside? Do you carve... (more)
I have been unable to find a gluten and soy free Worcestershire sauce commercially-- does one exist? If not, is there are tried and true homemade recipe (perhaps using coconut aminos?) I currently use French's which is gluten free, but the soy... (more)
Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
I want to eat pancakes made with tapioca flour. I just made them for the first time (with a high percentage of egg and banana in them) and they were good. But my question is, is there a way to buffer the insulin response created by the tapioca... (more)
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall hearing from someone that eating a high fat content food before consuming foods that result in a high insulin spike can help in reducing that insulin spike.
Ok there are similar but not quite same questions. Does anyone have links to good recipes for egg whites? Particularly dessert-y recipes that are pseudo paleo to the extent sugars are somewhat minimized and processed powders along the lines of... (more)
So I understand the thin line with dairy and paleo. (if you're hardcore dairy is blasphemy.) but whats the deal with types of cheeses that are okay. I have a recipe ready using pears, roquefort, and almonds but was curious if bleu cheeses are out... (more)
Depends on you! If you feel ok after eating blue cheese, I would say go for it as a treat! If you feel terrible after eating it obviously I would mostly avoid. Paleo is a template!!!
When I was doing the slow carb diet I used to make little pancakes using only mashed beans, eggs, spices and soy sauce. They were very tasty and it was a great way to get eggs into my diet because I don't like how they taste. I want to try to do... (more)
Mash a cooked sweet potato or yam, mix in an egg, add salt and pepper, and drop spoonfuls into a hot skillet with coconut oil. I've done this with regular potatoes, too. It isn't light and fluffy like a pancake, but they are good.
Does anyone have any take along snack ideas other than nuts and fruit? Not that those aren't good, but they're getting stale. What do you usually grab or set out a head of time when you know you're going to be busy and pressed for time? I have... (more)
I just wanted to post a follow up on my experiments with "Pork Bread" (made using crushed pork rinds). After the initial success of my sandwich bread, I decided to make a pizza using the pork -based bread for a crust. The resulting flat-bread was... (more)
My local fruit shop was selling guavas and I bought some on impulse. However, now I'm not quite sure how to eat them... Best on their own fresh, or does anyone have a recipe suggestion? I also bought some fennel, another thing I've never used... (more)
Yep! Salad from finely chopped fennel, orange wedges and black olives is superb! Salad dressing made out of orange juice, olive oil and a little mustard to accompany!
