I LOVE onions! I could eat them until they come out of my ears! I know they are super healthy for you and have quite a bit of anti-oxidants in them. I eat probably 1 small to medium onion a day. While I'm on paleo, I'm trying to lose weight and... (more)

You know, onion, like hot peppers, is one of those foods that some people believe aren't "Paleo" because "no way anyone living in the wild could enjoy eating this raw". The people who say that are probably communists and should be federally... (more)

Yes they are. Where it becomes un-paleo is when you eat only salad, then you're in vegetarian land. I never eat sprouts like alfalfa sprouts though and they tend to be higher in lectins and phytates because they just came out of their legume state. (more)

Commercially grown produce is sprayed with wax, pesticides, chlorine derivatives, etc. You do want to wash to get a least some of it off. Ingestion of some of those things over time can't be good for you. This all in addition to what Andrea is... (more)
