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)
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'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 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)
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 dont like most green leafy vegetables because they are bitter and dont satiate me,unless they are drenched in olive or avocado oil. Plus they cost too much. Too expensive for not much caloric return. The only veggies i like are mostly dense... (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)
So, if I buy organic vegetables, is there really a need to peel them? After looking through Well Feed and seeing a roasted carrot recipe that said something about peeling them it got me thinking, does it really matter? I'm not super lazy, but it... (more)
Anyone rice anything besides Cauliflower? I'm wondering if broccoli or cabbage might work. A non-cruciferous option would be nice. Bonus points for finding a way to do it with leafy greens :)
After a month-long diet of (almost exclusively) eggs, ground beef, and liver, I'm sure that vegetables play some role in digestive health. Why does eating vegetables make me feel good? Soluble fiber? Folate? Nitrate? Some other micronutrient I'm... (more)
I'm just curious what Probiotic species you get with different fermented food and in what concentration for equivalent weight of food? For example sauerkraut vs. yogurt or kimchi vs. kefir?Any studies or comparative data on this? TIA.
I want to buy a freezer for my the hubby and I (both Paleo but some dairy) to freeze some farmer's markets produce and pastured meats for winter when my local farmer's markets end around Thanksgiving. My goal is for the produce to cover from... (more)
I am very confused with what my body is doing on this diet. I have never been on a "diet" (beyond don't eat crap) before so I am new to this. I am following the high fat mod protein and low carb plan currently. I used fitday at first just to get a... (more)
Is rhubarb a no or a yes? I have a bunch of organic rhubarb in my yard and would like to use it up. It is considered to be a a vegetable but the United States court system calls it a fruit and I am not sure where it lands on the scale of good and... (more)
