Rendering Suet into Tallow

Rendering Suet into Tallow

A few weeks back we visited Mt. Vernon Farms and, among the other goodies we got, picked up some grass-fed beef suet. Suet is essentially pure fat that is sometimes used in its natural form, but is usually used to render into tallow. We love to use tallow and lard in our cooking and making your own tallow from suet is incredibly affordable and easy. So easy, in fact,...

How Do Grains, Legumes and Dairy Cause a Leaky Gut? Part 2: Saponins and Protease Inhibitors

We make it clear that we are in no position to expertly and thoroughly explain the science behind the Paleo Diet. So many people, though, ask us about it. In response, we went out and found a scientist for you. Meet The Paleo Mom, a scientist-turned-at-home-mom. She has written a series of posts for us on the “why” of this way of eating. We hope this will be informative...

In Our Gluten-Free Kitchen

Today we’re guest blogging at Celiacs In The House for the Gluten-Free Kitchen Series.

Your Non-Cooperative Spouse

This is one of those few posts we recommend only the adults hang around for… I mean, it’s your call. But we’re gonna talk about some stuff related to relationships and keeping your spouse happy. Alexa tells me that our audience is mostly heterosexual 25-34 year old women with less than a college degree. That makes sense — that’s the...

A Fly on the Wall in the Paleo f(x) Real World House

A Fly on the Wall in the Paleo f(x) Real World House

We met Bobby Gill through our local Meat-Up. It was the night before our 10 year vow renewal and he showed up with a huge smile and perfect hair. Probably also with some pot luck food someone else made that he was pawning off as his own – as he has a tendency to do… But, I knew immediately who he was. People had told me “Oooh, Bobby Gill’s coming...

Kale with Apples and Onions

Kale with Apples and Onions

The funny thing about kids on paleo is that they will latch onto the oddest foods. We all know how healthy greens are; for our family, it’s the main source of calcium and other healthy vitamins and minerals. We eat them all and we eat them daily: spinach, cabbage, collards, baby bok choy, any of them. Rich in iron and calcium and vitamin A, frankly you could never...

Eat Like a Dinosaur Week 2 Recap

Let me explain. When a book is a month or so out from publication, review copies...
Pumpkin and Bacon Silver Dollar Pancakes

Pumpkin and Bacon Silver Dollar Pancakes

We’ve been working on trying to find more affordable ways to get pastured meat into our family.  The hardest part? Bacon. It’s just so expensive! But… I can’t give it up. So until Matt starts curing his own pork belly, my solution? Ends & pieces! We had been using Trader Joe’s bits & pieces bacon, but it’s not pastured so...
