This is a great cookbook for pressure cookers. ...

Re: Tired!!!

For me, making sure I eat enough overall calories, and include enough starch, is key. I eat a lot of sweet potatoes, white potatoes, and have recently added beans (soaked, and cooked from scratch -...

Re: Any good Paleo websites?

I'm a big fan of Mark's Daily Apple (www.marksdailyapple.com). His book, The Primal Blueprint, is outstanding.

For recipes, Health Bent (http://www.health-bent.com/) can't be beat!

Re: Smoked Meats

The recipe I use for smoked pork butt has sugar in the dry rub, and black strap molasses in the mop. I don't worry about it since it is a very small amount considering the amount of pork I am smoking.

Re: Cooking for the week

To me, making a menu seemed like more work in the beginning, but in the end it winds up being less work because you don't have to really think about meal planning the rest of the week.

Re: Cooking for the week

As an example, yesterday, we made a big pot of pumpkin chile, and cooked a whole chicken in the pressure cooker.

Re: Slow Cooked Vegetable Recipe?

I have not tried it with water or spices, just because I like to keep them pretty neutral. That way I can add whatever I want to them later depending on what I am having them with. I can add cayenne,...

Re: Slow Cooked Vegetable Recipe?

I use the slow cooker to make sweet potatoes. Just throw a bunch in there, and cook on low for about 6 hours. When they are done, I usually just remove the skin, and mash them up.

I store them in a...

Re: What your doctor doesn't know about nutrition

One meal has 7 ounces of meat for me. An entire day with only 7 ounces? I don't think so.

283 grams of carbs = about 3.5 day's worth of carbs for me.

I can't even imagine how I would feel eating...

Re: Which Paleo Book?

I have not read Paleo Solution yet.

I have read The Paleo Diet, and The Primal Blueprint.

Re: Best Live Show You've Seen?

Bad Religion at The House of Blues (it's a small venue, so it makes seeing bands there very cool).

Ministry back in 1993.
