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.

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

    Pinned: 11 Sep 2014
  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.

    Pinned: 11 Sep 2014
  • Replace 2 spoons of plain flour with 1 tablespoon tapioca flour and add 1 teaspoon of butter or ghee at the end. Cook for a little longer with no lid on to thicken the sauce further.
