What delicious treat can I bake for non paleo brunch guests that will make them say "damn, that paleo stuff is tasty!"? I don't do much baking (sex with your clothes on, blah blah) and my last attempt (muffins from paleomg) was flat out gross. ... (more)
I have edited this so as not to come off as self promoting. I work for a raw vegan chocolate company. We make 81% raw dark Chocolate with 5 ingredients. 81% Raw Cacao Raw Cacao Butter Raw Coconut sugar Wild craft Vanilla Bean Himalayan Sea... (more)
I've been on the Paleo diet for a few months... I have always had a sweet tooth though, and I am able to satisfy it without going that far off the paleo template. I would say i'm 90/10. The 10% cheat being Organic 85% or greater Dark Chocolate... (more)
A paleo friend was encouraging us to try this as a nice treat. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm really new at this, and I'm really trying to be as strict as possible for a number of reasons, not the least of which I'm trying to lose the... (more)
Just out of curiousity. When I first started paleo, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit, I was making paleo bread, cookies, muffins etc. at least 3x a week. Now I have learned a lot and that number is down to once every 2 or 3 weeks. its fun to make... (more)
So... are there any paleo Valentine's Day treats that you know of? I'd like to give some goodies to my mom, but I don't want them to be super unhealthy. Any ideas?
So last night I had some popcorn, roughly a cup and a half. It was a light cinnamon type. No dairy. The thing is this morning I had a good amount of energy at the gym (this is after 10-11 hr fast which is typical). I do tend to eat VLC so maybe... (more)
First of all, I realize the paleo label is a big tent. I've found my little niche in that tent that works for my health concerns (paleo+dairy, or a version of primal that's stricter in some ways) and I'm pretty happy with that. I've done a... (more)
I won a gumball machine at my company party last night. I'm not thrilled about my daugher eating so much gum though. What do you all think I should put in its place? One thought was macadamia nuts. Expensive but round. Will they last long enough... (more)
I love butter, but when I make bone broth, there is so much fat that I hate to just throw away. I use some for cooking, but because I do a lot of broth, I could never eat the giant frisbee-sized hunk of fat I get each week. I occasionally make... (more)
Anybody here ever try some of the baby food options? I was going down the isle and noticed some of the fruit ones are just the fruit no water or other additives. Thinking of things to add to my lunches as a treat from time to time. What do you... (more)
Usually for myself, but since tomorrow is Friday and my office has been working so hard, I thought of making them some treats, especially since this weather is ridiculous! Any suggestions?
Any commercially available packaged snacks do you like? Are there brands of (sweet) potato chips fried in coconut, MCT oil, butter or other natural fats? I have tried Caveman Cookies and they are nice. Easy to overeat though. Sometimes I also... (more)
Yes, I know baking ain't paleo, but anyway... What's your favourite paleo brownie recipe that gives you moist, fudgy, dense, chocolatey brownies? I just tried one on health-bent, but wasn't wowed by the results...
As of late, i have been in a funk, not depressed, not sad or angry but just feeling uninspired, not excited in general; as a result, I noticed that I'm using sweets as a reward/out of boredom and thinking about sweets/treats more as a mood... (more)
After a healthy Paleo lunch or dinner such as chicken drumsticks (free range, organic of course) and a big salad I quite often feel like I would like a 'little something' just to round out the meal. I'm not talking here about a sugar craving or a... (more)
I was in the UK for two days for my father-in-law's 70th birthday. I've been strictly paleo for about six weeks now and had my first "treats". Over the course of the weekend, my non-paleo foods included two glasses of red wine, two glasses of... (more)
I wouldn't simply take it as a given than whenever you eat a treat food you are automatically going to feel like crap for any period of time. You might or might not, and it might last a day or two, or a week or two. It might depend on what you... (more)
So its that time of the year and I know we are all going to be tempted into eating treats while we are at friend's and family's. What kind of "paleo" sweet treats do plan on bringing to share to all your non-paleo friends? I've started a small... (more)
New to Paleo - about 2 months. Switched because it was pretty close to how I already ate and exercised, I just cut out dairy and the few whole grains I ate before. I have a monster sweet tooth. As promised, eating Paleo for a while has drastically... (more)
So sort of following on the heels of the question from yesterday regarding horrible things that you ate once upon a time, I got to thinking about what I eat as a treat now - you know when you want to celebrate, or unwind from a crazy hectic day -... (more)
