How much to cruciferous vegetables affect iodine absorption? I like eating raw kale at cafes and in smoothes when I'm out. If I was to consume seaweed like nori how much would this help if goitrogens interfere iodine absorbtion?

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)

I believe you should cook potatoes. I cook my veggies, except for when I am eating a salad, because I digest them better that way.

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)

Fruit has too much sugar so you'll want to keep your fruit consumption down to a minimum: try to limit it to 1-2 servings. If you eat more than that in the beginning of your paleo journey, don't stress. Just try to taper it off and experiment with... (more)
