I just bought a side of grass fed beef. The good news is it's healthy. The bad news is I got a bunch of round steak to cooking. I desperately need a good, yet simple Paleo round steak recipie. It HAS to be kid friendly, and the... (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.
I am looking for a really good Paleo marinade for Beef Jerky. I recently mad my own soy sauce with 1 part balsamic vinegar, one part roasted sesame oil, and 2parts fish sauce. It's really good and I am wondering if it would work as a marinade for... (more)
I mash up some frozen bananas to make banana soft serve (sometimes with coconut flakes, some nuts, or some cocoa powder, it's like a blizzard from DQ!) and then top it with some coconut cream, yummmm!
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)
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 have a bag of coconut flakes that I'm SUPER excited to turn into a jar of coconut butter. I've found a recipe by The Clothes Make the Girl that includes salt and vanilla or almond extract, in addition to the coconut, and I'm wondering if... (more)
Toasted Coconut-Macadamia Nut Butter Recipe (I use the term loosely): 3 cups unsweetened coconut (shredded or flaked), 1 cup macadamia nuts, pinch of sea salt Toast half of coconut in large pan over medium heat until brown and fragrant. Remove... (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!!!
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)
I've got some stew meat that I want to cook up in the crock pot, but I want a recipe that doesn't use any tomatoes (diced or paste) or red wine. Is there something else I can use as a base? Or do I even need a "base"? I'll be perfectly happy if... (more)
I finally bought a dehydrator (nesco 1000 watts) and I've been making jerky all weekend: beef flank shaved thin, with a touch of sea salt (yum!) ground beef jerky with sea salt, garam masala and apple cider vinegar wild salmon, also with a tough... (more)
I scored 2 pastured lamb kidneys for $0.88 from the butcher on my way home from work tonight! (I'm addicted to popping in to see what's there... I buy bones at least 3 times a week for stock :) So friends, what do I do with these babies? Please... (more)
When I was little my father used to make lamb kidney for breakfast on the weekends. He'd fry onions and add the chopped kidneys with lots of ground coriander, black pepper, and some cumin. Sometimes he would add mushrooms.
A few years back Starbucks had this chocolate drink called a Chantico that was made with with cocoa butter and chocolate, but sadly, it was discontinued. It was like drinking a shot of hot chocolaty lava. I was reminded of it after watching the... (more)
Ohh.. this one is near and dear to me so you get two. All can be bought at whatever grocery you go to - the coconut sugar is definitely at Whole Foods, health food stores, etc. Not so poncey: 2c whole milk or coconut milk 5oz bittersweet... (more)
What is the best offal burger and how is it made? Best in terms of nutrition, taste and durability as a burger. Something you could eat every day. Would coconut flour, gelatin and egg be good binding agents?
I called them "meatballs", but this would probably make a good offal "burger" as well. It is a combination of liver, grass fed beef, egg, coconut flour, and various herbs/spices/veg browned in butter (although any other fat would do) and then... (more)
Please share your ideas for food/meals/recipes that would qualify as low reward. For example, is butter on a boiled potato too tasty. Only plain potatoes allowed? Are plain sweet potatoes just too tasty? What about coconut oil on a potato? That... (more)
A few months back butter was really cheap so I bought a lot and kept it in the back of the fridge. That would have worked out fine except I stopped eating eggs for a couple months as part of an elimination experiment (back on eggs), and buttering... (more)
You could make ghee which has a much longer shelf life. I put mine to simmer in the crockpot, periodically skimming scum of the surface, then when there's a layer of scum at the bottom, pour off the liquid into a jar and enjoy!
