    Whey Ricotta

    I've been grain-free for about two years and almost totally dairy-free for roughly a year and a half. Currently, butter and unflavored whey protein isolate are staples for me, and the only dairy...

    All-protein meals?

    Lately I've been making my own beef jerky with nothing but salt and coconut aminos... it's really lean and contains no carbs, so it's pretty much 100% protein. I've been carrying it around in my bag...

    Mercola Whey Chocolate

    Mercola is a bit of a salesman, but his beliefs about nutrition all seem to be incredibly on-point. He's a fan of saturated fats, avoids excess polyunsaturated fats, advocates eating grass-fed, and...

    I consider my diet pretty moderate. Most days it comes out to 40% protein, 35% fat, 25% carbs. I don't worry too much about the mixing of carbs and fat, so long as my calories are in-check, but...

  9. My CICO experiment... a full-circle moment

    I'm writing this post with the full knowledge that a four-page CICO-vs-macros argument will follow, but I feel compelled to share my results.

    I came to the paleo WOE about two years ago, a lean...

    Ooh nice. I like the idea of cacao nibs. Do they blend well or does it end up like a chocolate chip smoothie? I don't mind much either way.

    Butter in a protein shake?

    Sounds crazy, but has anyone tried it? I need to add a little fat to my protein shake and am not a huge fan of coconut (and I can't get past the taste of avocado when I've tried that as an...

    Trying to help my sick brother

    He was injured playing basketball (nothing major, just a twisted ankle, but it's making it hard for him to move around much). He's worried about getting out of shape during this injury, and I thought...

    Chicken Skin, Pork Cracklings, etc

    Is the protein in animal skin mostly gelatin, and therefore not a well-rounded source of protein? I remember reading a while ago that pork rinds are not a good source of protein for that reason, but...
  20. "Processing" foods... how much is too much?

    I also think it's funny that so many people are (to some extent) defending Choco, when normally he seems to be standing alone and combating others on this forum. Weirdly... heartwarming?

    Thanks guys. So in taste/texture, is it more protein-bar-like or more jerky-like? I'm looking for something that'll give me a little bit of a sweet, dessert-y fix, so if it's just straight up jerky...
