Fermentation is popular with both the Paleo and Weston A. Price communities, whether it be sauerkraut or kimchi the benefits of probiotics, in our ever more sanitised world, is more important than ever.

The Real Food Company in Alsager

One of the most difficult aspects, for most of us, when following the paleo diet is finding the quality ingredients needed to prepare a nutritious paleo meal. Most supermarkets really don’t cut it; they are the size of an aircraft hanger but once you’ve ignored the breakfast cereals, bread, fruit juices, additive-laced tinned and jarred […]

The trouble with fad diets is…………..

I was chatting to someone, who works for a medical company, about the Paleo diet, we’d talked in the past about what constitues being Paleo & he had a general understanding of the principles. He mentioned that he’d had chance to speak to an endochrinologist who worked for the same company as he does & had […]

Fermented Hummus

There’s definitely something really appealing about a smooth & creamy dip, and for me hummus is the king. It’s extremely versatile & can be transformed with just the addition of a single ingredient, such as roasted red pepper, caremalised onion or even just a sprinkling of smoked paprika. Up until quite recently I thought it […]

Post workout meal 02-06-2012

Today’s meal was quite hearty as I trained in a fasted state this morning. I hadn’t eaten anything for close to 16 hours but I must say I wasn’t ravenously hungry, all the same I made sure that I slightly overfed myself. The meal comprised of some elements left over from a couple of previous […]

Post workout meal 26-05-2012

This weeks post workout meal was a completely new recipe for me so it was a bit of a risk to cook and document it for the blog at the first attempt, the fact is it sounded so interesting that I just had to give it a try. The star of the show is coconut […]
