All right, I've been following a Primal lifestyle (tending towards Paleo, too) for just over 3 years now and, pretty much every day, I'll eat a huge salad for lunch. Usually, it'll have some sort of greens (mix of romaine, spring mix, and... (more)
So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (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.
Getting very tired of my "usual" salad. Even when I am in the mood for something different somehow I always end up with a bowl full of greens, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and chicken. Good, yes. But I need some different... (more)
I eat big salads a couple of times a week with sardines and olive oil. I recently read raw spinach is not the healthiest choice. what are the best choice for salad greens? spring mix? arugula? lettuce?
I eat a big ass salad almost every day with the base being baby spring mix (kale, spinach, arugula, and more) and generally top it off with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, onions, walnuts, pine nuts, sliced almonds, and some form... (more)
I am eating a VERY big salad daily. Relatives are concerned about the possibly high content of oxalates I am taking. The daily salad consists mainly of: Lollo rosso/red cabbage Romaine cabbage Spinach One small red beet 1-2 Small... (more)
Sooo I'm at work, and I have a salad with me. It's a salad I prepared 4 days ago. Salad dressing is not on the salad of course. It's spinach, cut romaine, peppers, onions, little chopped vegetable bits. It LOOKS ok. Would you eat it? How long can... (more)
It's probably fine, especially if it's not dressed, so take a sniff. Smells fresh? Great. Toss around with a fork to make sure nothing looks slimy - if yes just pick those bits out and eat away! Note: I like to keep all my ingredients separate... (more)
Do you eat a Big Ass Salad? It is part of something Mark Sisson advocates, so I see some posts here and there about what people put on their BAS with details on the numerous ingredients in their giant salads. I used to eat a BAS (especially... (more)
So over the lest couple weeks of doing this whole Paleo thing, I've made an observation.. When I eat a decent breakfast (like 2 of these egg muffins), and have a salad for lunch I still feel ravenous throughout the day. However, eating 2 muffins... (more)
So... I may be confused here, but you could help me out. So I'm a newcomer to paleo, as Robb says I'll try it for 30 days. However a lot of my meals have a basis of salad and 'green stuff'. So when I go luck at Robb Wolf's food matrix to make... (more)
You can eat salad. No harm in that. You might like to read Sisson. He includes a salad. Either way. Eat and Enjoy.
Hey all. I am new to the site, but have read a bunch up here while getting into eating the evolutionary diet. My question is this... are there any commercially available salad dressings that are paleo approved? (and also don't contain EDTA, free... (more)
I like to have something with strong flavor and crunchy to put on my salads to make them more interesting. So far I've been using Jungle snacks dehydrated kale chips. These work well but at $8 for a bag that lasts about a week, it's an expensive... (more)
Oh god, make your own kale chips. It kills me how much people are charged for that little container when big fat bunches of organic pesticide free are just a few bucks. Some folks use oil and seasonings when they make, I literally just wash, pat... (more)
Hack Mark's Lunch Salad? A lot of folks are trying to loose weight and they are taking Mark's lunch salad as a key part of their diet. What are your thoughts? Mark is in great shape and can likely get away with a lot more than most people.
Lately every time I eat salad with coconut oil I have to go to the bathroom QUICK!! And sometimes undigested food comes out --salad leaves YUCK! Is it the coconut oil or salad? Salad is just organic romaine-- coconut oil I have been eating for... (more)
I'm looking to jazz up my salad's. Right now I usually do arugula, raw baby carrots, sun dried tomatoes, cucumbers (peeled), olives, avocado and some type of meat or fish. What do you all put on your Big Ass Salads??
I'm brand new to the Paleo diet and I am not a "cooking" kind of guy . . . but I'm diving in and doing it. Regarding quick and easy meals, obviously salad + chicken, etc . . . is a good Paleo meal. But what are some quick and easy salad dressings... (more)
So I am struggling to find a consistent breakfast. I used to eat eggs every morning and that worked for a few months. Then eggs stopped sitting well in my stomach and giving me some gas. I switched to fasting in the morning but that made lunch... (more)
My paleo version of a to-go breakfast or lunch is a frittata (or 'egg muffin') - using ground beef, or diced chicken or bacon/ham, and whatever diced roast-able veggies you like, chuck the fillings into muffin tray holes, fill up with beaten egg,... (more)
I'm ditching olive oil based salad dressing. What can I substitute for it? Here's what I've brainstormed so far: Coconut oil. Pro- Tastes good. Con- Might make me feel queasy at times. Also, I'm already eating lots of saturated fat, and I... (more)

Lately, I'm into salads. I often wake up and start the day with a small bowl (right now baby lettuces, mizuna, red / green swiss chard, spinach, arugula, radicchio). I'll later have something with some more meat (maybe salmon, a baked potato, a... (more)
Hi Everyone, My first question so I hope I am not retreading a well worn path. I am trying to incorporate more raw foods into my diet. I typically eat a lot of veg but it tends to be of the variety I can stew/soup/roast... The leafy greens... (more)
Hi, I'm new to paleo and was wondering if I could get a suggestion on which lunch meal would be the best? I'm terrible at packing lunches but there is a fantastic salad restaurant near my work I can walk to. Their site is:... (more)
