Nuts and seeds – these guys are nutritious but many nuts and seeds are high in Omega-6 fatty acids which can be pro-inflammatory if consumed in large quantities and when your diet is not balanced by an equal amount of Omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish like salmon and sardines, eggs and leafy greens. Basically, don’t gorge on buckets of nuts and seeds every day. The same goes for nut meals and flours such as almond meal. Whenever possible, try to activate nuts and seeds by soaking and then dehydrating them back, which makes them easier to digest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--BtnfD9RmE
The paleo diet is based on the principle that if a caveman ate it, so can you. In general, that means that meats, vegetables, fruits, fats, nuts and seeds are on the table while grains, beans, dairy and refined sugars are off. But, in case you don’t have a caveman to call, this list will give you all the information you need to know about which foods to include in the paleo diet and why they’re so good for you. You’ll also find a simple guide to the total protein, fat and carbohydrate content of the listed foods to make it easy to see how they can fit into your daily caloric intake.
Hi Steve, coconut flour absolutely will not work here because it’s 3x more absorbent than almond flour. You only want to use coconut flour in recipes that call for it because it performs so uniquely. If you had to use coconut flour, you would want to use 1/3 of the amount, but I would recommend using my coconut flour chocolate chip cookies instead, which have been formulated specifically to use that kind of flour. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=po3If8ARqDQ
To ensure that you’re fueling your body with the very best nutrient-dense vegetables on the paleo diet, aim for variety by including as many different types of paleo-approved options as you can. Doing so will help to protect your body against a whole range of diseases including heart problems, high blood pressure and some cancers. They’re also a great food option that’s usually low in calories and will fill you up with gut-beneficial fiber for optimal digestion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnLc95VpW5Q
Oh, wow. These are GOOD. I made them exactly as is. First, I couldn’t stop eating the dough (which is bad because I’m pregnant and there is raw egg). I just had my first one and I am going back for another. Love how these are healthy to help keep my pregnancy weight gain in check, but also totally craving satisfying! I will be making these again, for sure. Thank you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q-9OvUXEnk
Don’t settle for buying Fruit Roll-Ups when you can make your own version at home, without all of the chemicals and preservatives. These leathery lookalikes deliver all the flavor you could ask from a fruit snack, because they’re really made from fruit. Apples and strawberries to be exact, and there’s even a grapefruit added for good measure. The recipe ends up making 10 strips, which should be enough to get you through the week. It’s a bit of a novelty, and a delicious way to get some vitamins and nutrients into your body.
Cooking and consuming seaweeds can be intimidating because they can seem quite bland, tough or bitter at first glance. With the proper seasonings and cooking though, they can become a real treat. In the following snack, nori sheets are simply rubbed with coconut oil, seasoned with sea salt and a small amount of sesame oil, then roasted very briefly.
Hi Monica, Pyure has stevia in it which is much sweeter, so I would use less than the amount of Swerve. Not sure exactly how much it depends on whether it is all-purpose blend or bakable blend Pyure, but It would be somewhere between 1/3 cup and 2/3 cup. Swerve is 1:1 ratio with regular sugar and Pyure’s conversion chart is: https://pyurebrands.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/17000045253-do-you-have-a-conversion-chart-
Sorry for just now seeing this! You’re the first person in about 600 reviews to say that they didn’t come out well so something definitely went wrong. Did you maybe pack your almond flour very full? I’d recommend going by weight. If you didn’t, I recommend trying again because every now and then, I accidentally leave an ingredient out of a recipe when baking and don’t realize until later. I know it’s probably not the answer you were looking for but it’s the only thing I can think of if you didn’t make any changes at all to the recipe.
The key difference is fruit is allowed in paleo and some high GI vegetables like Beets/ carrots / sweet potato which are not allowed in the diabetic diet as the sugar from these releases to quickly into the blood stream for it to be controlled (in terms of sweet potato its release into the blood is the same as a potato so interesting to see it allowed in paleo) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFIHLe_rLbc
