Does Portion Size Matter on a Paleo Diet?

Does Portion Size Matter on A Paleo Diet

This is going to blow your mind, but portion size matters, even if you’re eating a Paleo diet.

Mind. Blown.

However, it’s not usually something you need to think about.

For too long, many Paleo authors and bloggers have made it sound like it doesn’t matter at all how much a person eats. In an effort to rebut decades of brainwashing, we now often hear that calories don’t matter.

That’s ridiculous. It’s at least as ridiculous as (and maybe more than) saying that calories are all that matters.

How Mount Fuji Taught Me to Love Sardines

How Mount Fuji Taught Me to Love Sardines

I visited Japan for the first time in 2014, and one of the things I was blown away by was the food.

The sushi was way better than I even expected, and I generally ate tons of great food for cheaper than I expected.

But one of my favorite discoveries – and stick with me here – was sardines.

I know!! Who would have thought?

But in the town that is near Mount Fuji, they’re famous for their young sardines, also known as “Shirasu”. You can buy them fresh or dried (we went for fresh), and they’re absolutely delicious.

As it turns out, I’d spent my whole life being afraid that I’d hate this little fish, only to find out just how great they are.

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

I bought some lemon thyme (a lemony-tasting thyme plant as the name suggests) from Whole Foods a few months ago and it’s been flourishing in the garden despite the drought here.

And since it’s been so hot in California over the past few weeks, I thought some lemon thyme infused iced tea would help cool things down a bit.  And if you prefer a sweet-tasting iced tea, then try the plum infused tea recipe here.

Plum Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Plum Infused Iced Tea Recipe [No Added Sugar, Easy, Delicious, Healthy]

My mum’s plum tree went crazy this year, and we had plums everywhere. If you open the fridge, there’s a whole bucket full of juicy plums, and if you walk outside, you have to be careful not to squish any plums that rolled onto the ground!

So, to help her eat her delicious plums, I’ve been devising new recipes using them.

This plum infused iced tea is superb for the summer months – plus it’s simple and gives a nice twist to your typical iced teas.

How to Make Cashew Cheese [Paleo, Vegan, Dairy-Free]

how to make paleo cashew cream recipe http://paleomagazine.com/how-to-make-cashew-cheese-paleo-vegan-dairy-free-recipe

Cheese was one of the last foods I stopped eating after starting a Paleo diet – it was simply too hard to resist at first.

Luckily, I found cashew cheese as an easy and delicious replacement. Give it a try and pin the infographic below on how to make cashew cheese so you don’t forget – it’s super easy to make and has a nice creamy texture very much like cream cheese. In fact, it also looks very similar to cream cheese.

My favorite use for cashew cheese is in this recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cashew cheese.

Is Tuna Paleo?

Is tuna paleo?

Until 2013 (when Salmon surged ahead), tuna was the second most popular seafood consumed in the US. And it’s not only in the US that tuna is a favorite.

If you’ve ever been to a sushi restaurant, you’ve likely noticed that some of the most common cuts of sashimi are maguro and toro — in other words, types of tuna.

Fish is regularly touted as a very nutritious food, but it’s also common to hear warnings about certain seafood, including tuna.

So should you regularly consume tuna?

The lazy days of summer can lend themselves to a lot of ordering in. It’s always healthier to cook your own food but sometimes the heat (i.e. the laziness) can get in the way. I’ve thought of a happy medium to solve this issue-–make breakfast and lunch at the same time!

Can Paleo Help With Lupus?

Can Paleo Help with Lupus?

Can Paleo Help with Lupus?
This guest post is written by Cindy Holder Poole about her own experience with lupus.

Sixteen years ago I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. My life changed in ways I would never have imagined.

While I had been fairly healthy and athletic during my younger years I had found myself working too much, sleeping too little, and about to embark on a downward spiral that ended many of my hopes and dreams.

I was told to avoid sunlight and rest when tired. I was told diet wouldn’t help but to watch my weight. I was also told to avoid stress which was difficult since I worked as an air traffic control specialist at Los Angeles Air Traffic Control Center. Shortly after my diagnosis I gave birth to my second child and then found out that my oldest son had a form of muscular dystrophy. Stress just kept coming at me! I gained weight and my disease progressively became worse. Eventually it became difficult to even walk.
