This is a sad day for me as I've learned that avocados give me gas (well, at least the 2 per day I have been eating recently). I love them not only because they taste amazing but they are so easy to bring to work and keep around for a snack.Any... (more)

Consume more nuts since they are high in monounsaturated fat. Have a go at dowsing olive oil on nourishments or cook with olive oil. It is additionally rich in monounsaturated unsaturated fats. The avocado is high in vitamin E so substitute these... (more)

I want to make a bisque soup for Christmas. The recipe calls for one cup of flour to thicken it. What is the best replacement Paleo-friendly flour to use and is the replacement a 1:1 ratio or something different?

I use arrowroot or cornflour - pretty much just pure starch. You shouldn't need a whole cup, though. Chestnut flour doesn't work. I also use xanthan gum, produced by bacteria. Not paleo but doesn't seem massively harmful to me unless you're... (more)
