    Online paleo tools that I use!

    Shop Now
    Here are some online tools that help me in my paleo lifestyle that i thought i may share!

    For quick calorie and nutrient information:

    Simply go to WolframAlpha.com and start typing in your ingredients! For example one of my favourite salad recipes:

    1 cucumber + 2 hard boiled eggs + 10 olives + 1Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar + 2 Tbsp oliveoil + 1Tbsp feta cheese

    Not only that but you can also do clever things like find out “Which foods have the most Vitamin C?”

    The Marks Daily Apple Searcher

    I often find myself discovering a new concept or latest trend in health and think, what does master Grok Mark Sisson think on the matter? The MarksDailyApple.com website is such a behemoth of information that nearly every topic in regards to health has been featured on it. So my favourite Google search term these days is:

    site:marksdailyapple.com searchterm

    For example, I was interested in cortisol so in my trusty Google engine I typed: site:marksdailyapple.com cortisol

    It also works for the forums aswell and I find it better than the forums built in searcher. I was looking for a good bacon-mayo recipe

    So I typed into Google: site:marksdailyapple.com bacon mayo

    So finally to save you all the time and for convenience, i have created a custom search engine which searches an array of Paleo/Primal resources. Use it to learn new concepts, find recipes whatever you want!

    Awesome tips - thank you!

    Does anyone know of a site where you enter in a few of the ingredients you've got to cook with but don't know what to make and then it shows you all the possibilities? I found it a while ago but totally forgot what it was called.

    Just added the search engine to my igoogle
    The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being proven right or pleasantly surprised.

    Lezc0r-

    I think that you can do that on Allrecipes. Not sure, but it seems like that was the one.


    Just doubled checked. If you click on ingredients at the top on Allrecipes and put in what you have it will pull up recipes. You can even list items you don't want included.
