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)
Do you have a pressure cooker? If you have a pressure cooker you can turn that round steak into a really tender, delicious piece of meat. Pressure cooker + round steak + salt + olive oil + garlic + onions + oregano + tomato paste + 15 minutes =... (more)
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'm eating salads again and would like to know what sort of easy, quick, relatively painless yet delectable and nutritious salads you guys like to prepare. Fire off! And hey: if you want to offer a complicated, convoluted salad recipe I... (more)
I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
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?
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!
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)
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)
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!!!
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)
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)
