|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.
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.
