    I hear lots of macho talk about Paleo purity here. But when you come down to it, how many of you never ever cheat? I know that many of you cheat every couple of times per month, even every week. I know many who're barely even 80 / 20. There is actually very few of you that never consume artificial sweeteners, legumes, soy, ice cream, and processed and conventional meats.

    Based on the ingredients listed, the coconut Paleo bread is remarkably Paleo. It is only processed in the sense that it's pulverized flour -- this may not have been attainable back yonder. But it's more than 80-20. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

      When it comes to bread, I honestly don't cheat. Neither with real bread, nor gluten-free bread, nor paleo bread, nor any kind of anything bread replacement. Coconut flour here and there comes into play into my kitchen as a meat binder. So as far as I go, I do walk the talk.

          Saying that ground up nut flour that is super heated is "paleo" is like saying that Doritos and Coke is a healthy snack for vegetarians because it's meatless. Is it "paleo" based on ingredients? Yeah, that doesn't mean it's healthy. Common sense escapes people.

            "Julian Bakery Customer Tests Low-Carb Bread Claims, Requests They ‘Immediately Cease Sales’"

            They don't seem like a very honest company.

            I try to avoid almond flour. It's very high in calories and it seems to me like it could go rancid very easily. I love me some coconut flour, though. I use it to coat chicken nuggets.

            I dislike the idea of 'paleo bread'. It still sounds like a fake food to me. I went paleo to avoid crap and to eat nutritious, whole foods.

              It's annoying to deal with those who come out of the woodwork and pound their chests in righteous indignation. The Paleo coconut bread is sufficiently Paleo. I would have no problem making the bread my staple if the ingredients and macronutrients are as listed.

              Don't let those who've been brainwashed by the "bread is no Paleo" credo influence your food choices. Why, the coconut bread is healthier than the bread made from the Einkhorn stock, in use for more than 3000 years in the Middle East and during the time of Jesus; it's gluten-free. That's the dividing line, not whether' it's "bread." If you think the process of turning coconut into flour is "Neolithic", you should feel the same way about a lot of other stuff you're eating.

              Get rid of your cheat days first. Then get rid of all your processed milk products (cream, cheese, sour cream, ice cream), all processed meats (that means all cold cuts), all soy (including fermented), all processed oils (that means olive oil, too) and all grains (including white rice that's in vogue now), all sweeteners (sugar, Splenda, Equal, sugar alcohols, even stevia). There is such a thing as hierarchy and relativity.

              Sounds pretty fastidious for those who would wolf down pepperoni pizza and diet root beer on their "girls' night out". Then claim to have "fell out of the wagon" and wonder how to "jump start" Paleo. No need for that. Just eat bread. With right ingredients.

                have seen the other julian breads being questioned elsewhere on the interwebs. the super-low carb ones sell for like $8 a loaf!! ridiculous. even excellent artisan bread is less than $5.

                when i first eliminated grains, i looked into nut flours as replacements, but besides the questions about heating them up they are so calorically dense i couldn't justify it.

                i confess i keep a stash of home-made flax focaccia in my freezer. it's cut into tiny squares that i toast and eat with butter and avocado, when i really just want "toast". often i'll go months without eating any, and never have more than 2 pieces in a week. that amounts to less than a tablespoon of flax at a serving.

                i agree with others that anything marketed as "paleo" will only confuse those who aren't really familiar with this woe. i also can imagine people eating loads of this crap, gaining weight and then complaining "paleo doesn't work".
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                  I do make "faux" breads using tapioca, potato and white rice flours and cakes using coconut,and macadamia that I grind myself. We each have to approach this in a way that we can sustain and we all come to it for a different reason. Some of us embrace the paleo/primal entire way of life and eating, others are trying to live with gluten intolerence or seeking better health from various issues. Whatever choices one makes are individual and we should respect and wish each other the best. I don't personally like prepackaged foods but like I said in the beginning I will recreate our family favorites in a heartbeat. I am well aware that grok did not bake but bless his heart he didn't have an oven and dammit I do

                    I can totally get behind your way of doing it. Personal, at home, and non-commercial. I just really have the problem with commercial enterprises + the labels "Paleo" or "Primal". The way I understand this WOE, it is very much about ditching corporate labels (among other things, obviously) and bringing the food back home. The egg farmer doesn't say Primal Eggs - they are just eggs.

                      I never 'cheat' in a sense that I've commited some terrible sabotaging act to my health. I eat foccacia and scones most weeks. I would rather go out and enjoy a coffee and raisin scone than buy or create bizzare mix of funny tasting, more expensive replica bread that isn't even any healthier than regular bread just so I can label it 'paleo' and have it fit into my dietary paradigm. I'm not celiac so i'll just eat some normal bread. There's no 'falling off the wagon' either because I enjoy shopping at the local markets and that provides the food I actually want to make up around 80% of my diet. The only thing I might consider a cheat would be a solitary mindless cake face stuffing and pizza binge at 2am in the morning after 14 beers. lol Something I can proudly say I haven't done in a long long time.

                      • I saw this in a local health food store and couldn't resist buying a loaf of the coconut one, I was just curious. So to sum it up, this stuff is just awful. First off it comes frozen, so even if it were the best bread out there freezing it just ruins any kind of bread. So I let it thaw out then was left with this soggy bread which I had to throw in the oven and really toast up very crisp to get the sogginess out. I was left with a crispy toast on the edges but there was no getting the center to dry up. Before I get to the taste, the smell is just horrible. It smells like mildew and made my whole apartment smell terrible, which lasted all day. It even took a few times washing my hands to get the smell off them. Now onto the taste, the center was not edible so I didn't even touch that. I tried the edges that crisped up and it was like a piece of melba toast but with absolutely no flavor at all. I had to smother it in butter and salt to eat it, so what's the point really?! To top it off I paid like $7-8 for it, a total ripoff. Just a horrible product, don't waste your money. If you want paleo baked goods, make them yourself.

                          This wonderful way of eating is based on whole foods, real foods, simpler meals, foods that do not come with nutritional profile labels, foods that honor the Paleo/Primal premise in the spirit as well as the "letter of the law" (so to speak).

                          Both the Paleo and the Primal are strict no-grain WOE's. How does buying a fake-bread commercially-produced copy of a SAD and Neolithic food make sense in this context?! Good Lord, if I had a dollar for every time somebody got on a vegetarian's ass for buying faux-meat it would pay for a trip to PrimalCon! If you need a transition product, or if you have serious cravings, or need a solution for a particularly difficult family meal situation, or you just plain old decide to eat bread, then make it in your own kitchen, for yourself, one hard-to-produce loaf at a time, like Grandma did.

                          This entire forum is full of rants and ravings and exclamations and complaints and oh-how-abhorrents opposing mind games and faux foods and things-that-are-not-Primal - and BREAD IS NEITHER PRIMAL NOR PALEO.

                          Oh Lord, I can see it now: Paleo french toast sticks! Primal bean dip (the legumes were prepared in our homey factory kitchen the Weston Price Way!)! Lo-carb Dark Chocolate Nutella! Paleo ice cream! Vegetarian Primal Nut-Loaf with gravy! You don't have to own up to anything! The Primal can be anything it wants to be - just count it as a cheat! If Kraft decides that Primal/Paleo is a viable market we will soon see microwaveable frozen Primal coconut flour cinnamon rolls and other shit like that!

                          I know I am ranting, but this kind of bread-crumb-strewn slippery slope will be the beginning of the end of any real meaning for the Paleo/Primal. You can stretch the definition of what Paleo/Primal is only so far before it no longer has any definite meaning at all.

                          If the bakery in question had said this was simply a clean low-carb almond bread, I wouldn't have much of a reaction to it except to say No Thank You for myself and huh - maybe for a celiac (I have one of those at home with me). But it is specifically being billed as PALEO and as such, I find it disingenuous from the bakery, regardless if it is made with almonds or coconut or sweet potato flour or whatever, and hypocritical of a Paleo / Primal consumer.

                          I sincerely hope the Paleo / Primal folk have better sense than to support this.
                          +10000000000000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          Eat real food people and for f*ck sake please don't turn paleo/primal into packaged/processed commercial foods. That's not what this way of eating is about. Ugh!!!

                          • I still can't believe that people with celiacs disease buy all that gluten-free crap in boxes like crackers and cookies... like any of the replacement grains are good for them.

                              • I agree - these "bread" products were absolutely HORRIBLE! I could not even eat one bite of it. Don't waste your money. I think the purists are correct - eating real, good food is the key. This processed stuff is really bad - bad taste, bad smell, and bad texture. I am sorry that I wasted $8 of my money on it - never again!!!!
