Recipes and meal photos / Paleo biscuits recipe anywhere?
« on: September 03, 2013, 09:01:30 AM »
Does anyone have a recipe for these, please?

I'm especially interested in very low salt and sugar recipes, if that's possible.

Hope this isn't a tall order.

Cheers...

Diet and nutrition / Margarine
« on: June 20, 2013, 12:44:49 PM »
What's the general view on margarine?

Not just from a paleo POV, but generally.  What to make of the ingredients of what we call in the uk, 'Utterly Butterly', etc.?

Thanks...

Diet and nutrition / Anyone make their own burgers and/or sausages?
« on: March 15, 2013, 05:31:43 AM »
I've gone and bought a meat mincing attachment for the Kenwood, and dying to try out some burger recipes.

Does anyone have any killer recipes for burgers or sausages?

I made some burgers using a different chopping method last year, using quite a low fat recipe, and they weren't the same.  Lacked depth and flavour and juiciness.

Anyone?

Miscellaneous / How do you stay committed to paleo?
« on: February 11, 2013, 01:36:52 PM »
I've found this tough, like many of life's challenges...

How to stay paleo.  I mean, I did pretty well for several months, and got real close to my target weight (yes, I was 'doing' paleo for weight loss), and everything seemed cool.

But of course there were endless temptations away from the dark side, and now I find myself gaining a little weight, but what concerns me more is that I am finding it difficult to kick-start myself back into a paleo style diet, one that works for me.

I buy a bunch of stuff that I ought to be eating, but then slip into packs of biscuits, sweet things and bread etc. etc.

Any ideas on how to discipline myself to this way of life?  I feel really bad now that I have slipped up, and know where I need to get back to.

Appreciate your thoughts.

:)

Diet and nutrition / Are red peppers paleo?
« on: January 02, 2013, 11:05:32 AM »
Short question.  Applies to green ones too, and chillies, while I think about it!

Diet and nutrition / 7 days/30 days
« on: December 31, 2012, 08:05:36 AM »
What's this all about?

Why try 7 days of something or 30 days etc?  Is this not meant to be for life?

Are there particular benefits to very strict paleo that i am missing?

It's January Frist very soon, could be an ideal opportunity to shine!

So, did all the native indians in the Americas die young because they ate potatoes and pasta?

Diet and nutrition / So how can I avoid nitrate-filled bacon in the UK?
« on: September 10, 2012, 01:28:34 PM »
I don't think I have any issue with nitrates in bacon, but would rather not eat it, but how can I avoid this in the UK?

I don't buy that 'Danish' bacon crap - have you seen the water that pours out of it?  Yeatch!

Meta / Take me out and shoot me
« on: September 08, 2012, 03:48:30 PM »
Dunno why, but I succumbed to a Sainsbury's 'Craft' made soft white roll.  Even stuffed it with some of their really good sun dried tomatoes.

The tomatoes I adore, but the roll.......  let's just say, what a disappointment!  Yuck, even.  ok, I don't mean it was horrid, but it just felt/tasted so meaningless.  Like a non-food.  It was so weird.

I've been fairly paleo for over a month now, but this really brought home to me the uselessness of bread, pasta, rice, grains etc.  I'm not sure of the Paleo significance of this food group, but from a practical point of view, where's the pleasure in eating this stuff?

Shoot me.

Diet and nutrition / UK MEMBERS: BBC tonight, prog on IF
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:55:46 AM »
Something on tv tonight about intermittent fasting if you're interested.

Could be worthwhile.  It's being presented by a guy, the name of whom I forget, who does these , 'dieting-type', programmes for telly.

Diet and nutrition / Do you like the smell of non-Paleo food cooking?
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:53:38 AM »
'Cos I do.

Doesn't mean I want to eat it, or maybe it does, I dunno.  Either way, when I smell non-Paleo it doesn't make me run miles - it's not as if you can escape it.

Diet and nutrition / Hard to get the calories in.
« on: August 01, 2012, 12:22:24 PM »
Is this normal?  I'm finding it difficult to get my calorie intake above 1000 most days.

Ok, I could scoff something down (something healthy) to bump the figure up, but that seems over-reaction.

I think my appetite must be decreasing/stomach decreasing.

Anyone else losing the urge to eat so much?
