We bought this Instant Pot from Amazon around 5 months ago, and it’s been put to some amazing uses – like making this super tender beef short ribs recipe.
Overview of Book:
Written by Fat-Burning Man weight loss personality Abel James, this book is an overview of his program for losing fat rapidly, naturally and permanently. The book is broken up into very comprehensive sections beginning with general education and information. It then transitions into specific what to dos and what not to dos and lists broken down by specific food type. Finally, it wraps up with a comprehensive plan to get you started.
I wasn’t into cooking at all before I started a Paleo diet. In fact, my knowledge of cooking was practically non-existent.
But that all changed when I got into a Paleo diet – in fact, I started to really enjoy cooking. And I started accumulating cookware and equipment.
These 4 pieces of cooking equipment have made my life and Paleo diet so much easier, and I hope you find them helpful too.
What Is Ghee?
Ghee is clarified butter (i.e., the oil that’s left after removing the milk solids from butter). Ghee is very commonly used in Indian cooking, but you’ll also find many French chefs using clarified butter.
And if you want to know more about the benefits of ghee, then check out our article here.
If making your own ghee is too much hassle, then I highly recommend this delicious brand made with grass-fed butter and cultured so that pretty much all the lactose and casein is removed.
How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker
It’s pretty simple and quick, and you can make ghee yourself in the slow cooker (or crockpot) in a couple of hours. If you don’t have a slow cooker or crockpot, then you can use a regular pot on a stove (I recommend one with high sides to minimize the splattering).

I love making one pot meals as they are fairly quick to make and give leftovers for a couple of days. This great meal can be made in about 1 hour and the leftovers taste great the next day too.
This casserole is rich in vegetables that have many vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
It is extremely delicious. Proof for this is that my whole family (husband and two kids) LOVES it.
I picked up a foam roller several years ago after my chiropractor recommended it.
I used it initially to help get rid of my chronic knee pain (it definitely helped), but over time I’ve also found that it’s amazing for rolling out a lot of kinks in my muscles – from my back (from slouching too much) to my lats (from rock climbing).
It’s like a whole body massager!
Foam rollers have gotten popular in many gyms as a way to roll out your muscles after exercising to prevent muscle soreness the next day (my CrossFit recommended it for that reason), but it can be a super cheap and great way to stretch and massage your muscles even if you don’t exercise!
Even though there are foam rollers at my gym, I find them so helpful that I keep one in my study and roll on it when I’m taking a break.
This is the foam roller I bought from Amazon for $13.99 (the 6×18 round). And read the rest of this article for 4 exercises to start getting rid of the kinks in your body.
This recipe is a modified version of one that Jana, one of our readers, sent in. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner, and I asked her if I could try making it with some modifications and then share the recipe with everyone.
She very generously agreed, so here it is! Thanks Jana!
(Even if you don’t eat much fish, give this recipe a try. It’s really really good especially with the garlic ghee!) And an AIP version of this recipe will be posted here soon.
This post is mostly based on how I managed to cure heartburn, but I’ve also added in steps that other people have found to work as well. I’ve listed below 4 steps to curing heartburn – I hope it helps you like it helped me!
I Used To Have Chronic Heartburn
Heartburn is one of the worst conditions to have – for me, it happened daily. I would eat dinner, and then this burning sensation would arise in my stomach. If I burped, then acid would come up into my throat. Sometimes, it would be just a dull pain between my ribcage just below my heart. Maybe there are medical differences in my symptoms, but to me, it was just discomfort and pain.
And the worst part of it was that I thought I would have it for the rest of my life. Thankfully that wasn’t the case, so read on for the 4 steps on how to cure heartburn for good!
A common question I get from readers is something along these lines:
I really want to start a Paleo diet, but I don’t know how best to start it.
If you’re asking this question, then read on as this article goes into detail about the different ways to start a Paleo diet so you can pick the best method for you.
They’re simultaneously delicious, nutritious, and – unfortunately – expensive.
And although I don’t really believe in “super-foods”, they come pretty darn close.
I’m talking about Oysters.
Why Oysters are Masterful
If you’re not accustomed to eating oysters, the mere thought probably disgusts you. They’re slimy, a little chewy, and taste like the sea.
But for those of us who love them, that’s all part of the appeal.
Get out your cupcake trays everyone, because it’s time to put them to good use!
Petrale sole is a delicious fish that’s pretty cheap (we bought 3 for around $15 at Costco).
There’s not much debate between the various diets that fish is super nutritious and healthy, and I happen to love all seafood, so we often cook fish in our house.
Petrale sole is a fish I’ve eaten at restaurants before, but I’ve never tried to cook it until now.
It was remarkably easy and tasty, and here’s how to cook it.
Whey protein gets a bad wrap.
Especially if you read any Paleo sites or blogs.
And I really don’t understand it, sometimes.
There are a lot of myths about whey protein, but very few people look at the bigger picture.
