Can mix/exchange smooth pumpkin or sweet potato for filling



    1 cup pecans;
    1/2 cup hazelnuts;
    4 tbsp butter, ghee or coconut oil (room temperature);
    A pinch of sea salt;


    1 can fresh or canned pumpkin puree (about 1 ¾ cups);
    2 eggs;
    1/2 cup local raw honey;
    1/2 cup coconut milk;
    2 tsp cinnamon;
    1/4 tsp ground cloves;
    1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger;


    Preheat your oven to 350 F.
    Process the nuts in a food processor to almost a flour consistency. Be careful not to process too much or you’ll get a butter instead.
    In a bowl, mix the ground nuts with the butter or coconut oil and then spread the crust mixture in a pie pan and bake for 10 minutes.
    While the crust bakes, mix all the filling ingredients together in a bowl.
    Add the filling evenly on the baked crust and bake for an additional 45 minutes.

Pretty sure low protein, high carb was in fact the mouse paleo diet, and not the exact opposite.

Miscellaneous / 10 question survey for Paleo, vegan, vegetarians, and gluten-free folks
« Last post by Eric on October 11, 2016, 04:21:50 PM »
This is a short 10 question survey for a college cultural anthropology class regarding food and culture in which they are focusing in on those who consider themselves vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free*, and/or paleo. They are looking to collect data from persons living in the United States for simplicity's sake. If you have a few minutes, please check it out, and feel free to share it with your friends!

* They also note that while they are not excluding those who are gluten-free due to Celiac or different allergies/sensitivities, their intention is to gather data from those eat a gluten-free diet for other reasons.
They lost me on the last line where it says, "in mice."
Research / [Controversial] Scientists say the 'exact opposite' of a Paleo diet is best

Thoughts?  I'm clearly skeptical ::)

A low protein, high carbohydrate diet may be the most effective for stimulating a hormone with life-extending and obesity-fighting benefits, according to the latest Australian research.

The study, published in the journal Cell Metabolism, paints a clearer picture of the role of Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21), the so-called fountain of youth hormone produced primarily in the liver.

Previous studies have found that FGF21 plays a role in curbing appetite, moderating metabolism, improving the immune system and extending lifespan. It is also currently being used as a therapeutic target for diabetes but little is known about how this hormone is triggered and released in the body.

Now researchers at the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre have found that diets high in carbohydrate and low in protein are the best for boosting levels of FGF21 in mice.
Miscellaneous / Vegan mom accused of feeding baby only nuts and berries
« Last post by Eric on October 08, 2016, 05:00:25 AM »
UNIONTOWN, Pa. — The family of a Pennsylvania woman who allegedly starved her 11-month-old son says she practices an extreme form of veganism and fed her baby only small amounts of nuts and berries, reports CBS Pittsburgh.

Elizabeth Hawk, 33, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child after investigators say she allegedly failed to give her 11-month-old son sufficient food.

In an interview with CBS Pittsburgh, Hawk’s sister-in-law said she had been concerned about her nephew, who appeared to have developed physical limitations and other troubling health issues.

“He had a severe rash,” said Brandy Hawk. “It was his motor skills; he couldn’t use his hands at all.”

Brandy Hawk said her sister-in-law has extreme views on nutrition.

“She was going to live on water and sunlight,” Brandy said.

She said Elizabeth Hawk claimed the child just had allergies, but the boy’s father, who is estranged from the suspect was unconvinced, and ultimately decided to bring the child to a state child welfare agency.

Court records show the boy’s attending physician called not treating the rash “inhumane.” The skin condition also put the boy at risk for septic shock, doctors said.
