    Staying PB / Paleo while snacking? Where is the line.... ?

    I don't make paleo desserts. I don't see the point when I can just eat real dessert: fruit, whipped coconut cream, sorbet, dark chocolate, jello, flan, choco pudding with gelatin. If I am feeling fancy I will make a gluten free cake like I did for my birthday.

    I might make some pumpkin cheesecake with whipped coconut cream topping soon though for when my friends comes to visit me.

      Don't make the paleo treats a staple, but for special occasions that stuff is just fine.

          This is an excellent way of putting it. It took me a while to let go of some of my old ideas about portion control and just eat enough at meals.

          One of my objectives is to keep blood sugar/insulin as low as possible for as much of the day as possible. Snacking doesn't help with that.

          There are so many desserts and savory party foods that are naturally grain free. IMO, the root/nut flour versions of grain foods are disappointing enough that I just don't bother any more. I will have cake or bread with wheat when I'm eating out now and then, though.

                We probably need 3 categories to distinguish:
                • paleo grain-free sugar-free recipes
                • classic homemade grain and sugar recipes
                • industrial non-perishable 40-ingredient nightmare

                I understand indulgence but lining up at the airport Cinnabon might be a step too far depending on the body.
