I first tried these delicious chicharrones when I ate at 4505 Meats in San Francisco, CA, and then I started getting them as easy snacks when they started selling them at SFO airport and also in Whole Foods.

Paleo Soda Drinks – La Croix

PALEO SODA DRINKS - review of la croix soda

I was one of those rare kids who didn’t like soda. The bubbles always made me burp, and I couldn’t ever manage to finish an entire can of coke.

That all changed when I got to law school. One of my best friends there was addicted to diet coke (even she called it an addiction).

I wasn’t drinking coffee during that period and needing caffeine to stay awake during law school, I also turned to diet coke.

I’m happy to say that I haven’t had a diet coke for years now, but on a hot summer day, it’s still the drink I crave!

Luckily, that same friend gave up diet coke as well and recently, she introduced me to a new soda, La Croix, which contains only Paleo ingredients!

Review of Primal Kitchen Mayo

Review of primal kitchen mayo

Mayo (short for mayonnaise)…a creamy combination of eggs and oil in an emulsified state. It’s delicious and an amazing addition to many dishes.

So, what’s wrong with the regular mayo you buy in the stores?

The main issue is that they use bad oils (non-Paleo oils that oxidize easily and/or are high in omega-6 fats). For example, Hellmann’s Mayonnaise contains “canola oil” or “soybean oil.”

Apparently (and somewhat bizarrely), if you plant a cookie from Go Raw in the ground, then it will grow.

My guess is that it doesn’t grow a cookie-tree, which is sad.

I’ve always wanted a cookie-tree…

Being a Paleo food blogger doesn’t mean I only have Paleo friends. Indeed, I find myself hanging out with vegetarians, vegans, as well as other carnivorous eaters.

Rule number one of convenience paleo eating: Don’t judge a food by it’s package.

At first glance the crackers from Livin’ Spoonful are quite unassuming. I opened the box containing all seven flavors and quite frankly, at first glance, I wasn’t sure I could expect much based on the simple packaging.

Each package contains four crackers. The ingredients vary according to flavor, but most are generally the same, for example, the sourdough flavor has: sprouted sunflower seeds, sprouted almonds, flax seeds, dates, raw apple cider vinegar, Celtic sea salt, and almost all of which are organic ingredients.

Paleo Pantry Supplier: A Quick Review of Nuts.com

Nuts.com Review by Jadah West

I’ve been ordering from Nuts.com for years.

From experience, I know the company to completely stand behind their products, have decently fast order to ship times, and be responsive in customer service.

And the branding on their packaging, as insignificant as it sounds, is so adorable! It makes me get a fatuous smile on my face every time I open a delivered box.

Paleo Snacks – Bearded Brothers Energy Bars

paleo snack review bearded brothers energy bar

These Bearded Brothers Energy Bars have become my new favorite Paleo snack!

They’re soft but firm, a little bit chewy, and really really tasty.  Even though they do contain dates as a main ingredient, they’re not like some Paleo snacks that just taste like date paste – these have great flavor and great texture.
