Diet and nutrition / Re: Coconut flour pancakes are delicious!

The paleo diet means eating as close to what humans ate during the paleolithic as is reasonably possible today.

Sounds good!

Iím new here so donít mind me much but I live in an area where large number of native artifacts are found that date 3 to 6 thousand years old and they defiantly ground flour. From my other studies paleo people have been making flour for over 30,000 years. Iím no paleontologist or paleo diet expert so donít quote me on that.

3 to 6 thousand years ago is well into the neolithic in most places, so it isn't paleo.  Also, carrying around large stones for grinding seems
unlikely for hunter gatherers.

Hi there, you can also try corns, milk, fruits and shakes.
Not if you want to stay paleo, you can't.

I hope you guys don't mind me splitting this into a separate topic.

loelaj, I would guess that most likely your scale isn't that accurate; most bathroom scales are not.  In some cases, though, people see muscle gains that compensate for fat loss initially, if they were previously not eating sufficient meat.

The amount of meat and eggs you are eating now is sufficient to maintain muscle mass, but if you felt like eating more, it wouldn't be harmful.

After you reach your goal weight you will need to eat more fat, but for now you don't need to unless you want to.  Less fruit might decrease the hunger as it would reduce the insulin spikes.

Yeah, I've had nurses tell me that juice is the next worst thing to soft drinks - and they weren't even paleo.  Whole fruit is the way to go for fruit.

Things definitely taste sweeter once one quits eating refined carbs.  I can only suppose that the taste bulbs get burned out by a nonpaleo diet and are given a chance to grow back on paleo, or something.

Good job on skipping the alcohol!

Kangaroo meat is pretty lean; if you're cooking for the kids they might need more calories from fat or fruit.  Roast pork belly should be good, though.

Good job on starting a food journal, and especially admitting to the nonpaleo parts of it.  Looks like a good start, and it looks like you know some of the things you need to work on.

If you have time to cook breakfast, you could switch to bacon & eggs or the like.

What's S&P?

Welcome.  Stick to meat, fresh fruit, and leafy green vegetables, and drink water, and you'll be fine.

I just have to note the juxtaposition of "most gorgeous female I ever laid eyes on" and "strict paleo".  There's a cause and effect there.

I'd just say, learn how to cook a steak.  Get a preseasoned cast iron frying pan, add a bit of fat to prevent sticking, preheat on medium high for 2 minutes, throw the steak on for a couple of minutes a side, or more if she likes well done.

Miscellaneous / Re: Meat tax may be coming

Indeed, once a sin is taxed, the government has an incentive to increase the amount of that sin.  I wonder if that happens with alcohol in Alaska.

Recipes and meal photos / Zhoukoudian soup
« on: January 04, 2018, 10:54:44 PM »
The lower Zhoukoudian cave was occupied by homo erectus around 700,000 years ago, and again by early modern humans in the late paleolithic, by which time the broad spectrum revolution had occurred and humans were likely using fruit, like the citrus found in Asia, and other vegetables to supplement their meat.  Spicy, sour soups like this one could have been made in leather pots using the heated rock method, but we'll use modern pots on the stove top.


1 quart bone broth (see recipe linked below)
4 oz pork or other meat
1/2 cup bamboo shoot
1/2 cup mushrooms
2 lemons
white pepper
1 egg
2 scallions

While heating the bone broth to a simmer in a saucepan, slice pork and bamboo shoots into strips, about 1/8 inch by 1/4 inch by 2 inches, and slice mushrooms 1/8 inch think.  Cut lemons in half and squeeze out the juice.  Finely grind 1/4 teaspoon white pepper.

Put pork, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, lemon juice, and ground pepper into heated bone broth.  Allow to simmer about 5 minutes stirring occasionally, while beating eggs in a bowl and chopping scallions into 1/4 inch pieces.

After the 5 minutes of simmering, pour eggs in a thin stream into the soup and stir.  Serve promptly with scallions on top of each serving.  Diners may wish to add more pepper to taste.

Serves 3-6.  Recipe may be doubled or quadrupled.

I haven't made this much, but I now frequently make an even simpler broth recipe.  It's based on the bones left over when we order out for baby back ribs every couple of weeks, so it's not 100% paleo.

I take 4-5 ribs, including whatever meat the kids leave on them, and put them in about a quart of water.  I then heat the water to a simmer and let it simmer for an hour or two, reducing the volume by about half.  I then remove the bones, strain out any other solids using a find mesh steel spatter guard, and salt to taste for a consomme soup.

It tastes reasonably good, and is excellent for when someone in the family has a cold.  I keep baggies of 4-5 bones in the freezer for this purpose; since it only takes an hour, I don't need to make it in advance.
