Some Paleo Info on Jan 27, 2015 @ 06:14 pm

A good place to start is with the book: the Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet.

Here are two awesome bread recipes:
Almond Bread:
1 1/2c almond flour, 3/4c arrowroot/tapioca powder, 1/4 flax meal, 1/2tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 4 eggs, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp cider vinegar. Bake in 7in loaf pan @ 350 30-35 min. Beautiful golden loaf.

Coconut Bread - Makes 1 small loaf

6 Pastured eggs

2 tbsp raw honey

1/2 cup grassfed ghee, coconut oil or butter*, melted

1/2 tsp celtic sea salt

3/4 cup organic coconut flour, sifted

1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium-sized bowl mix eggs, ghee*, honey and sea salt until well-blended. Combine sifted coconut flour and baking powder, and whisk them slowly into the batter until no lumps remain. Spoon the batter into a small greased loaf pan (9x5x3 or smaller). Bake for about 40 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack.

This unsweetened bread can be sliced and enjoyed much like many other bread. Because it lacks gluten and doesn't contain yeast, it has a different texture and taste than wheat breads. This recipe can be doubled for a larger loaf, or divided into 2 smaller loaf pans for a nice tea bread.

Some tips: A lot of Paleo baking is with nuts. So, if you have kids and their school is nut free (as ours is), then it can be tricky! I save most of my baking for home and send a lot of eggs and leftover supper meats in their lunches. Also, I have not been at all successful in frying any recipe with coconut flour. I use almond flour for that and the coconut flour for things like muffins and cakes!
Here are some fantastic websites with yummy recipes:

Good luck! Paleo seems crazy hard at first (and you will feel tired for the first month or so), but it is so worth it! I lost 35 lbs in the first few months and we have all felt so much better without grains in our systems. Please keep us posted on your mission... should you choose to accept it ;)

I recommend investing in some buckwheat flour if you like making stuff like pancakes or waffles. Keep a variety of nuts around for snacking (also bananas). Invest in good honey instead of sugars (buckwheat and wildflower are always good). Avocado oil for frying and coconut oil for baking.

Great tips, Malixy! I haven't tried buckwheat flour. But the other suggestions are all right on!

Buckwheat not strictly Paleo on Feb 02, 2015 @ 11:57 am

I have heard that Buckwheat is not properly paleo since it is classified as a grain, but I know that some paleos who allow themselves some "mild cheats" such as quinoa, etc, would eat it. It is gluten-free, so if you're going Paleo for the gluten aspect, I don't see why you couldn't eat it. But if you're doing Paleo with the intention of being strict to the diet, then buckwheat is a no-no.
