Let's just say that, for argument's sake, I was getting all of my nutrients from animal-based foods like beef liver, pastured eggs, wild sockeye, bone broth etc. Are vegetables and fruit still necessary and what would I be deficient in? I eat... (more)
I'm getting a new BBQ/Grill today and I'm thrilled! I know for the most part how to do meat on it but what are some of the best veggies to grill, and how do you go about it? What about tubers and other USO's? Also, can you do liver on the... (more)
Eating seasonally makes perfect sense and goes along with other paleo doctrine but I naturally question all things. I've been tentatively eating seasonally too, but not taking it too seriously. CW says that the human diet in temperate... (more)
For a couple of years I've had consistent bloating, which is always most extreme in what I've figured is my colon, on the right side of my abdomen. When it's most inflamed and sausage-like it's usually accompanied by wild gas and gurgling, so it... (more)
I've heard you need fats to properly absorb a lot of the vitamins in vegetables. I personally eat veggies sometimes as snacks between meals -- with no fat. Would it be wise to try to include some fats with this? Interested in what amount of... (more)
So I'm eating salads again and would like to know what sort of easy, quick, relatively painless yet delectable and nutritious salads you guys like to prepare. Fire off! And hey: if you want to offer a complicated, convoluted salad recipe I... (more)
I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
I'm huge fan of their probiotics, but they don't have lacto strains in them. I wasn't sure if there needs to be lacto strains for veggies and if that has to do more with taste than effectiveness in fermentation.
Ok so, I've been eating a very strict paleo for a month. Not whole 30, but lots of protein, veggies (broccoli, cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash, zucchini, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage- all vegetables available, I eat it) all mixed differently to... (more)
So my problem is.. One hour after eating veggies my stomach makes a gurgling noise and I have very loose stool. I was on a fat fast/zero carb eating plan for 7 days ( some days less than 10 g carbs, most days in the 18-30 range). I just brought... (more)
I have noticed that the past few times I have eaten boiled vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage), I have had terrible abdominal and intestinal bloating. It is not really painful, just uncomfortable. Lots of air in my stomach and intestines.... (more)
Hi guys and gals.. I'm buying fresh meat and vegetables at the moment which is costing me a fortune! I am going to keep up with the fresh meat but am considering buying frozen veg because it really is so expensive and also goes off so quick! Is... (more)
Hello! Sometimes I am not super hungry and I don't want to eat a big meal with meat or fish. Then I would like to eat some veggie or fruit. Since I try to reduce fruit consume I like to eat some veggies, but which ones? What would you recommend as... (more)
I need someone to hold my hand here. I grew up in a home where white potatoes and canned corn were our vegetables. I've been paleo for about two years, but I've struggled with sugar/candy Despite cutting grains and legumes. I just finished the... (more)
I roast my vegetables most of the time. Chop them and toss with a little olive or coconut oil, salt, pepper, and maybe garlic salt. Roast at 400 or so for about 1/2 an hour depending on the veg. Roasting really brings out the flavor. I agree with... (more)
I have come to the realization my body does not like fiber and/or starch. Yesterday I ate some spaghetti squash and celery root-- my stomach was so bloated and I was in such pain for the entire day. I have tried digestive enzymes and HCL nothing... (more)
Hi, I know I have a leaky gut and candida. I've been treating the candida for over 6 mo now. I react to a lot of foods by acne/breaking out. I have been drinking water kefir without any problem. I had a problem with most veggies, but Betaine... (more)
So I usually eat mass amounts of non-starchy veggies, along with lowish-fat protein. (I have a little trouble putting more fat in my diet). I was wondering about whether it's better to eat starchy veggies to put less stress on my digestive... (more)
Hi, I'm quite new to Paleo, and I have a question about ways of preparing veggies and nutritional benefits. What will be the most beneficial/healthy way to enjoy veggies. Roasted? Fresh? Stir-fried? Cooked? Thanks!
Hi there, my 17 month old is still breastfeeding and we are trying to eat as much paleo as we can. We didn't really introduce his first fruits until he was around 10 months old. When he started when other foods he loved fish and meat and veggies... (more)
Ronald Post, Obese Death Row Inmate, Fights Execution In Ohio So, the legal side of the article is interesting as it is, but that's a discussion for a legalhacks site. ;-) In the nutrition and health side, some points stood out. The Ohio... (more)
Lately my only form of fiber is from steamed veggies, but I've noticed no matter what I ALWAYS get bloated after eating any sort of vegetable unless it is a leafy green (e.g spinach, kale, romaine) which have far less fiber than other veggies (e.g... (more)
Google FODMAPS. Sounds like you are intolerant, like me. And fiber is overrated. Make sure you are sufficient in Magnesium to avoid constipation.
I am a vegetable evangelist: I grew up eating fast food (literally five nights a week) and I didn't eat vegetables at all until a college boyfriend showed me that they weren't so bad when prepared correctly. Since then I've done a lot of dietary... (more)
I'm on a strict a Paleo diet except for vegetables (I only digest avocados) and fruits (I only tolerate berries). Anything else (veggies) I try to eat gives me bad bloating, IBS and unbearable insomnia. In the last weeks I used juicing 2 cups a... (more)

I know the Paleo community tends to be "meat meat meat" minded. Which is awesome-- I love meat as much as the next person. And butter. But anyway, my question is about vegetables. I tend to like a lot of volume when I eat--I'm kind of an admitted... (more)
