All the best. I find myself saying 'if not now, when?' Change is tough at first but so worth it when you feel good about doing good for yourself. On my way to a healthier 53 myself : )

If you think about it in the context of what people in the paleolithic had, you realize that flour would be unlikely, and that the human caloric expenditure to harvest and process coconuts (or almonds, etc.) would be more than the calories they provide, thus either an unlikely food source, or an occasional "luxury". If you are going to eat almond flour, for instance, only eat as much as you would of the whole nuts if you had to pick and shell them by hand. You will soon discover how small the portion is compared to the large amounts of flours in most recipes.

I thought some flours were paleo for some reason. As good as this looks I admit I prefer the whole "no recipe" approach. Makes for simpler meal planning with just whole foods which goes with my keeping it simple attempts, also less temptation without recipes that remind me of the old ways ...

Diet and nutrition / Re: How do you get variety in your diet?
« Last post by JayJay on February 13, 2017, 06:49:01 PM »
The best thing to do is to divorce yourself from the notion that you need constant variety. Paleo is way easier if you just accept this. If you keep chasing after variety in your diet, you will get on a treadmill that is hard to get off of. It will probably lead to little indiscretions here and there, until you are no longer following paleo. If you are okay with "kinda' paleo", then go for it. But if you are trying to follow a orthodox version, variety is the enemy.

Technically, flour of any kind is not paleo, and neither is anything that requires a recipe. I'm sure your pancakes are a healthier alternative to wheat flour pancakes, but paleo? No.

Good to avoid Palm oil if you want to help conserve the Orangutan and other animals from loss of habitat.  There are some palm oil markets that us sustainable palm oil and that is OK.  Sustainable palm oil is harvested from existing farms that promise to not increase new areas.
