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.

45% ALA, huh? That's like flaxseed level of omega-3s... Certainly not something you'd ever want to cook with. Maybe as a supplement or as a raw oil, but even then, probably not.

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)

Vegetable oils are more insidious than wheat/grains.

If you're tight on space or don't have arable land, check out Window Farming. You probably wouldn't be able to grow big stuff like squash and cauliflower, but herbs, leafy greens, tomatoes and berries etc for sure! (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?

Canola Oil? It has the "perfect" 2:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 and high smoke point, plus flavourless.

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?
