Sweet or Savory?
In my ongoing search for the best Paleo cookie recipes, I’ve noticed that in general, CrossFit people seem to lean towards the naturally sweeter fruit heavy cookies, and non-CrossFitters seem to be a little more flexible on ingredients and lean towards the savory side. I personally tend to look for a reasonable balance between savory and sweet. Continue reading “Anatomy of a Great Paleo Cookie Recipe – Nutty Cookies”
I can’t believe that it’s been nearly four years since I began my Paleo lifestyle journey. What I am absolutely amazed at is just how much the entire Paleo scene has changed in that short period of time.

There is nothing more controversial in the Paleo universe than Paleo sweeteners… Well, I take that back, because there are actually many things that experts, dieticians, food nerds and amateurs all disagree about in Paleo (including the validity of the Paleo diet itself). Paleo is full of controversies. Continue reading “A Rough Guide To: Paleo Sweeteners”
Great grandpa probably didn’t have IBS or Crohn’s either. He also probably wasn’t obese or even overweight. He’d probably never even heard of these health issues in his time. These and other “mismatch diseases” are only a small part of the story of human evolution presented in Daniel Lieberman’s new book: The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and Disease.

If you have been reading this blog for a while now, you know that I am all about simple, fast, and especially portable breakfast solutions for the Paleo diet.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), and whether or not it is truly a Paleo food item is a hot button topic on the Paleo scene lately. Why it is so controversial is due in part to what Quinoa actually is in biological terms. However, I do have some other issues with the Paleo-ness of quinoa which I’ll get into later. But first… Continue reading “Is Quinoa Paleo?”
I’m always looking for ways to make Paleo/Primal meals on the weekend that will last through the busy work week. This sweet potato chips recipe is an easy one to make on a Sunday afternoon. If you are like me, you already have the oven hot because you are making multiple meal preparations for the week.
