Healthy Weight Loss with Paleo, Part 2: Lifestyle Choices That Make a Difference

Image Healthy-Weight-Loss-with-Paleo-Part-2-Lifestyle-Choices-That-Make-a-Difference-The-Paleo-Mom-02.png

When it comes to losing weight, there’s dozens of effective diets to choose from.  It’s true that just about every approach geared at weight loss works.  But what’s not true is that every way we can lose weight is healthy, plus it’s often very tough to maintain that weight loss.  That’s where focusing on healthy weight loss comes in.  Healthy weight loss means we are successfully losing weight, mostly fat Read more

Paleo Success Story: Treating Lupus and Celiac Disease

Image IMG_3986-800x533.jpg

In April of 2014, Primal Palate interviewed Meg Doll—a holistic nutritionist and self-love advocate—for a Paleo success story. Meg became our first success story post about someone who tried to gain weight on Paleo. Today, you’ll meet the second. Almost three years after I wrote that original post on Meg, I met her for the first time. The day I met Meg was the day she moved in with me. For the past month, she’s lived in my apartment as we Read more

Recipe: Gambas al Ajillo (Spanish-Style Garlic Shrimp)

Image Gambas-al-Ajillo-from-Paleo-Planet-%7C-Freckled-Italian

When Rob and I used to live in Charlotte, we would go to this little tapas place called Zen Fusion for happy hour almost every Friday night, especially in the summertime when we could sit outside on their awesome patio. They had great sangria and a little menu of cheap appetizers, and we'd always order the same things--starting with gambas al ajillo. These succulent shrimp would come out swimming in a small cast iron pan of hot, bubbly, garlicky Read more

5 Reasons Not To Avoid Beans and Legumes

Hardcore Paleo advocates fervently argue that legumes are unhealthy and are to be completely avoided for optimal health. Their main concern with beans, lentils and peas surrounds the high levels of anti-nutrients in legumes, which they claim lead to poor nutrient absorption and inflammation. While there is some truth to these arguments and there are people who may benefit by avoiding legumes, Paleo die-hards often ignore the large body of Read more

Staffan Lindeberg (1950-2016) and His Legacy

Dr. Staffan Lindeberg was a pioneer of the Paleo diet as well as a wonderful colleague and friend. The following tribute was written by his Ph.D. student Pedro Bastos. Dr. Lindeberg would have been 67 today (February 22nd.) Dr. Staffan Lindeberg was a Swedish physician, who, like Prof. Loren Cordain, got hooked in Evolutionary Medicine when he first read Drs. Eaton and Konner’s now classic paper (‘Paleolithic nutrition: a consideration of its Read more

Beef Tinaktak

Image img_75171.jpg

I’ve been to the small Pacific island of Guam about a dozen times in my life, but never for long – usually I was disembarking from a US Navy ship and headed to the airport, on my way back home. There were a few moments when I was lucky enough to spend a day or two on the island before catching a flight, relaxing by the beach and reveling in the novelty of not having to wear a uniform 24/7. Regrettably, though, I never got a chance Read more

Some Things I’m Loving Right Now

As of today, there are just 50 days until Dave, Smudge, and I get on the plane to Prague! For now, I’m literally touching every object in our house and deciding which pile—take, store, sell, donate—should be its new home. I packed 10 boxes of books—cookbooks, photography books, design books, comic books, graphic novels, massive hardcover coffee table books ohmygoshthey’resoheavy—that are now ready to be taken to a used bookstore in Read more

Guess what, party people? I found a Paleo-friendly, Whole30-compliant, and most importantly, authentic chicken pho recipe that you can make in an Instant Pot. Close your eyes and imagine the most slurptastic bowl of chicken noodle soup from the bestest mom n’ pop pho joint in Vietnam, and you’ll get a sense of what this tastes like, ’cause it’s a recipe from Vietnamese cooking maven Andrea Nguyen’s latest cookbook, The Pho Cookbook! As James Read more

The Personality Factor: How Does Introversion or Extroversion Interact with Well-Being?

Image Inline_Introvert_Extrovert.jpg

Sometimes it seems like this world is built for extroverts. The most successful politicians, entertainers, and public figures are (or at least come off as) extroverts. One of the “Big 5” personality traits we use to judge and praise people is extraversion (Introversion, falsely assumed as simply the lack of extraversion, doesn’t merit mention.) Certain studies suggest that extroverts make more money than introverts, on average. Read more

Image iStock-481592540_kazoka30-200x200.jpg

The Weston A. Price Foundation and advocates of the Paleo and Primal lifestyles favor bone broth for its wide array of nutrients that are difficult to find in any other food source. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has made bone and meat stock the foundation of the GAPS protocol because of its ability to heal and seal the gut lining and reduce overgrowth of harmful microbes. Chicken broth has also been suggested to reduce the migration of immune Read more

cookingcaveman: Cabbage Soup! I looked back in my archives and kinda can’t believe I haven’t made this one before, because it was a favorite of mine growing up. The change of weather to autumn (even in sunny Southern California) always puts me in the mind frame of being a kid, anticipating the first batches of my grandmother’s soup. I’ve written about it before, she did all the cooking in our house, and she elevated Jewish peasant food to a high Read more

Our take on Rogan Josh

Having survived the holidays as well as the darkest days of winter, Hayley and I finally came down with a bit of a cold this week. We’ve both come through the worst of it though and are feeling better. That’s good, because we have tickets to see the Pittsburgh Symphony tonight, as they are playing Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece: Sleeping Beauty. We bought the tickets on a whim last month, and neither of us thought we’d be Read more
