Diet and nutrition / Re: Almond Butter

If you get one of the really good blenders (Vitamix) you can easily make your own almond oil.
They have huge motors and are fairly loud but do serious blending work (you can blend golf balls, etc. - it's seriously a beast)

I agree that palm oil (in addition to its harvesting being destructive) shouldn't be in an almond butter mix.

I realize this is an old topic, but ...

There's no reason almond butter should have palm oil in it.  Almonds have their own oil!  Sounds like a way to cut the product with a cheap filler.  Or to get the consistency to be more like peanut butter or nutella - with pure almond butter the oil tends to seperate and float at the top of the jar, with a thick dry sludge settling on the bottom sometimes, probably from being on the shelf for awhile.  Anyway, I get organic almond butter made from just almonds, no brand name, just the store brand at either wholefoods or shoprite (a local supermarket chain here).  Sometimes with salt, depending what's on the shelf.  Wholefoods actually has a grinder that you can fill from a bulk bin whatever type of raw or roasted nut you want, hold a container underneath and out comes nut butter. 

At any rate, it's more expensive than peanut butter, which I'm allergic to and I've heard isn't really paleo anyway, but pure almond butter is pretty dense with fat and other nutrition, so 2 tablespoons or so added to a smoothy or something is plenty, so an $8 jar lasts awhile.  For me anyway.

My name is Milford. To say Paleo has been important to me is an understatement. I actually discovered Paleo style eating back in 2005. My heart went bad, needed heart surgery but at 360 pounds, no machine in existence would keep me alive for 6 hour surgery. So Doctors sent me home and gave me 90 days to get my affairs in order. Choosing a casket was one of those affairs.

My youngest daughter wasn't going to accept that. She went out and found someone who was eating Paleo and had lost a lot of weight. She introduced us and I started eating Paleo, without knowing it was Paleo. My last Dr. appointment was Christmas eve 2005 where they were going to see if I had lost enough weight to maybe get the surgery.

Walked into the Dr.'s office and had lost 45 pounds in the 90 days, and that was with no exercise at all. I was too sick to exercise anyway. Doc was so surprised and thought we could put off the surgery if I could lose more weight. I kept up the eating regime and in 3 more months I lost another 35 pounds.

Bottom line, May 1st 2006 I had the lifesaving surgery I needed and here I am in 2017 doing well. If it wasn't for the Paleo eating style, I'd be pushing up Daisies right now. I have recently started a blog and am sharing Paleo videos and recipes. Having a blast doing it.

Looking forward to meeting a lot of new people and celebrating life through healthy eating.

That's about it.  Oh I live in Santa Rosa, ca and just went through the big fires up here. Thank God my house was saved. But a lot of my friends and family lost everything. Hope you'll say a prayer for them. Thanks.

Milfredo :)

Hi Eric -
Actually I'm doing a lot of standing lately.  I'm on family leave taking care of my daughter (5 months old) for a few months.  The first few weeks my calves and lower back were sore from all the standing and carrying her around.  Now they feel good.  I also got some home-gym stuff (resistance bands, dumbells, pull-up bar) to simulate lifting weights a few times a week while I'm home.  I'll never be "jacked" but I don't want to be a frail old man later in life.  I should probably add some cardio into the routine.

Very cool man.  I am getting older too.  Can you believe I read/found out about this stuff back in like 2003-2004?  Wow!

Are you also doing any exercise or getting physical activity?  I'd encourage at least more standing if not more walking as well if you don't do "zoo human" exercises (aka the gym)  :police:
