Hey everyone, So to cut right to the chase - both my parents are addicted to Maxwell House International French Vanilla instant "coffee"...which is horrible. The worst part is, they eat a fairly paleo-ish diet (via my influence), yet... (more)

Peoples' choice on how they take their coffee is a common issue on almost any diet - not just Paleo. It is not uncommon for people to find that it's not so much the coffee that they liked, as much as it was the caffeinated sugar-milk. Is this... (more)

The paleo lifestyle has been a journey for me, but one thing that got me started was when I felt hungry or had cravings, I would eat a spoonful of coconut oil mixed with something (b/c I didn't like the taste by itself). It helped me feel... (more)

Try another type of fat. Perhaps lots of olive oil on your salads. Lard in your veggies. Ghee?

I am feeding my baby a mostly paleo diet it seems (following the methods of Nourishing Traditions) and have determined that he is most likely allergic to coconut. Does anyone have suggestions for binders and breading that is not nut (or... (more)

Why do you need binders to make portable foods? Cut up the foods that you are eating into "baby" size portions, and give him that to eat. No need to make nuggets or crackers yet.

I can't really tolerate alcohol since going paleo, but I miss the color (I know it doesn't make sense but I love the way light shines through a glass of white wine or champagne) and flavors of beer, wine, and cider. I get a buzz from one glass of... (more)

I am famous/infamous for using water kefir as my substitute. My friends call it my "hooch" because apparently they can smell a hint of alcohol when I drink it instead of the sodas/diet sodas/sweet tea I used to drink around them. If you haven't... (more)

As most fellow paleo dieters know by now, i have a pretty big love for chocolate and other not so friendly paleo sweets. And i do believe that if it were not for this addiction, i could truly stick to any diet devised by man. I know that at times... (more)

I used to be devoted to milk chocolate, but since trying cacao nibs and now the Lindt 85%, it totally changed me. I'm now hoping to try Lindt's 90%. Somehow the bitterness gives me whatever I'm wanting when I'm wanting chocolate, but I only need... (more)

Mark sisson's site seems to suggest that it does not cause insulin levels to rise, any thoughts on energy bars that use sugar alcohols and refer to themselves as low carb (net effective carb subtracting fibers and sugar alcohol to yield 1-2 gm of... (more)

No, no, no!! Do not use! I will expand my answer after I get back from the movies. ... I'm baaack! First of all, sugar alcohols are processed and one of the main tenants of paleo-dogma is that we do not eat processed foods. Now, I know that... (more)

I'd just like to hear your baking experiences with coconut oil. When substituting for butter or vegetable oil I feel like things are coming out too dry if I use a 1-to-1 substitution. I really don't care about trying to match nutrient ratios or... (more)

I have always just substituted it 1 for 1. If it is drier for you, I'd just add more until the consistency is right. May I ask where you're getting these recipes and what flours you're using?

Until now I have been using almond flour and coconut flour when baking muffins, pancakes etc. But then I found this website that has a list of grain-free foods and among a lot of foods I noticed Buckwheat and Quinoa. I googled the two and found... (more)

Unfortunately, in this case - if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck its a duck (even if it doesn't contain gluten). While these psuedo-cereals are indeed gluten free (and quinoa's not even a grain), they still have many of the... (more)

After success with other more natural alternatives, I've become skeptical of many mass produced so called 'health' products. Considering that fluoride is a toxin, I haven't found any good research showing that applying it to my mouth is really... (more)
