I've read a couple of times that vegetables actually increase intestinal permeability because they're insoluble or something. Here's a passage I recently found on this website: "Not to mention everytime you eat a plant food, either the... (more)

Hey this might seem like old news to many but I just learned a few days ago about the fact that ruminants like deer or cows are able to digest plant matter because they ferment it in their stomach. I had an "aha!" moment and thought well... (more)

I fermented a lot when I was a vegetarian, I prefer to let the raindeer do my fermenting for me these days.

I have found some fabulous Paleo recipies that include Jacima. I am in Australia and have never heard of it and am wondering if there is a substitute or if it goes by another name.

I would substitue melon or squash depending on the type of recipe the jicama was in. If it was adding sweetness and water, I would go with melon. If it was adding a light, sweet starchy veg, I would go with squash.

It's a great oil to cook with! Tastes somewhat like nutty/broccoli and goes great with a balsamic. It's truly a unique taste, a little pricy but I found mine on eBay which is a little cheaper than your other link.

Which do you think is worse for human health? I personally think that those highly refined vegetable and seed oils are just as bad if not much worse than grains. It's only been used for a couple of decades whereas grains have been eatan for many... (more)

I think grains get more attention because many get a fairly immediate negative effect (bloating, gas, etc) where as a lot of the negative impact from seed oils is likely more long-term and/or harder to directly link to seed oil consumption.

Look into the fodmaps diet. You're naming fodmap diet no-no foods causing your bloating, and I used to be like that too. Garlic and onions are big no-nos for me. My weekly grocery veggie shopping list usually includes: kale, swiss chard, spinach,... (more)

Juice fasting IMO is pointless and it tastes gross. I tried it for 5 days, lost quite a lot of weight. I put it back on in a week. I was anyway eating strict paleo at that time just wanted to experiment. Eventually did lose the excess weight... (more)

Check your local public library. They should have a handful of regional-specific books- i.e. "Gardening in Northern Wisconsin," that sort of thing. It can help you figure out if you even live in a decent area for growing cauliflower, when to... (more)

I know beef tallow would be best but I'm going over a non paleo house for my fantasy football draft. He is frying wings and I would like to know which would be better, Vegetable Oil (gross) or Peanut Oil?

The lower the omega 6 / PUFA in the oil the better. More PUFA means more oxidative damage when you boil oil. It forms trans fats: Check here - see the oils and fats lists.... (more)

I'm in a debate with a coworker about why cooking with butter (ghee) is better than vegetable oil. Now I know that coconut oil is good and olive oil is good for salad but can you guys shed light on why or if butter is better than most oils?

Butter is very low in polyunsaturated fats, also known as Pufa. There are really two main types of pufa in our diets, omega 3's and omega 6's (linoleic acid). O6's in excess cause inflammation by signalling inflammatory eicosanoids, can promote... (more)

Does anyone have any thoughts, or experience with, the Aerogarden hydroponic gardening products? Organic vs. Hydroponics?

You can make one yourself for a fraction of the cost of commercial store bought ones. For growing herbs or other small items they could have some use. Hydroponic can be organic so the real question is hydroponic vs soil and conventional vs... (more)
