Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Why do so many people who believe in Paleo try to imitate Neolithic foods? Why not simply eat the food as it comes? VBR Hans

    • I think people just like to cook. Cooking goes back as far as art. For many people, it’s relaxing and fun way to express the human need to create something beautiful for their “tribe”

      • exactly, and just because neolithic has a bad connotation, in terms of food, does not mean that all things neolithic are necessarily bad.

  2. @Melody. This is looking really interesting. For ease of use on youtube could you name your videos in sequential order, or use a video editing tool to stick them all into one, that’d be great. Looking forward to trying them! Thanks.

  3. @Hans. Why imitate? Because sometimes the food tastes really good but you really don’t want any of the side effects that come with them. By making them primally you get the great taste, and the great health benefits.

  4. This looks like a good recipe but the video itself is pretty terrible. Just needs to be smoothed out with some editing and it would be great. Like the shot of her cleaning up the sink was pretty bogus, should have been edited out. But the shot of the dough itself is great.

    • i make what is a essentially a giant omelette in the oven with about 12-16 eggs and what ever veg/meat i can think off/have on hand and mix it all up and bake it for 45mins at 190degC depending on how much i put in it lasts me between 4 and 6 days (i have pretty big portions)

  6. Can anyone see what the amount of the flours should be? Is that a 2-cup measuring cup, meaning you’d use 1 cup almond flour and 1 cup coconut flour? I do wish the videos had been a bit more precise with the recipe – she mentions “dried coconut” and a blender at one point, when I think she meant coconut flour and the Cuisinart. Thanks!

    • She said 1/2 cup of each.
