Paleo Resources

There are so many things that get covered as part of the Paleo/Primal diet and lifestyle that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of all my favourite blogs, websites, products, and useful posts. This page is a mini gateway to the online world of everything paleo and primal. You will find links to sites I regularly visit, books I’ve read or planning to read, articles I found useful, products I’ve treid and enjoyed, and many little tools to help you lead a healthier, tastier life.  Enjoy!

    Do you have any good sources for erythritol or tagatose in Oz?

    And thanks for all the tastiness!

      Hey Jorg, I usually try to avoid anything I can’t pronounce ;) Are you trying to find a sweetener without fructose? I can recommend rice malt syrup, which has no fructose and is used by the body as energy rather than storing it as fat. Coconut syrup is also a good natural sweetener as it has a very low GI and is quite concentrated so you only have to use a little. You can also find pure liquid glucose and sometimes dextrose in supermarkets or health food stores.

        If you’re not familiar with those two sweeteners you’re probably in for a treat… both of them have very low GI (erythritol’s is 0), they’re refined from reasonable plant sources (fruit or corn for the former and and milk for the latter), and they taste great.

        I’ll look for coconut syrup–thanks!–but will still search for local sellers for the other stuff since they do have some compelling advantages.

  • Gut health mission! The last two months have been busy, a little stressful and filled with various indulgencies, lots of flying and not having a routine. This often (more like 100% of the time) leads to disrupted gut flora and generally poor gut health, which in turn compromises out immune system. 😷😰😣 So on top of getting my diet back to normal (I eat mostly paleo) and getting into my usual sleeping and fitness routine, I'm stocking up on probiotics. I made a batch of kefir (way too easy) and got some ready made raw sauerkraut (I should really make my own but that's for next week). If you feel like you often come down with colds, flu or just feeling off, look at your gut health first. Always helps me 😃 #guthealth #healthyeating #healthyliving #paleo #nourishing #kefir #jerf #westonaprice #fermentation

  • Thai lunch for one 😉 Salmon tartare, grilled chicken with herbs, veggies and fish cakes. Fresh coconut with lime! At Cafe Chilli (Siam Paragon). Great food but overpriced as you can get equally good grub much cheaper at the markets or in a street cafe. Paying for the aircon. At least I'm doing research 😋😎 #bangkok #food #thai #foodie #travel #recipeplanning #paleo #primal #glutenfree
