PostSubject: Basic Paleo Recipe Principles   Fri Mar 12, 2010 3:24 am

When you make Stone Age recipes with modern foods, remember you want to insure that all of the ingredients are free of:
  1. Grains
  2. Legumes including peanuts, beans, peas, soybeans, tofu, soy milk and flour
  3. Dairy products
  4. Salt
  5. Yeast including baked goods, pickled foods, vinegar, fermented foods and fermented beverages (all contain yeast)
  6. Processed sugars
  7. Starchy root vegetables including potatoes, yams, and sweet potatoes
  8. Excessive added fats except for permitted oils

You should try to choose the leanest cuts of domestic meats and trim away any visible fat.

Remember, the mainstays of The Paleo Diet are fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and seafood.

The above being said .... this forum isn't going to be super-strict about certain ingredients.

Salt will be suggested in some recipes, if you are going hard-core Paleo, feel free to leave it out. A little salt in what you cook isn't going to be seen as a pure evil here ... it's more important to watch your salt in foods or beverages that you aren't preparing from scratch.

Honey and natural maple syrup won't be shunned. It's natural and used in moderation, it really shouldn't pose too much of a problem for people. The idea is to lose weight but also to find a happy and sustainable medium, and find ways to make healthy great tasting food.

Ingredients like baking powder - while made from corn starch and thus not really Paleo, can go a long way to making a recipe turn out well, and it's a minor addition at best. Again, if you want to adhere strictly to the Paleo diet, kudos to you, and feel free to modify the recipe and leave it out as you wish.

If you find great substitutes that have great results, please do share them!
