Gluten-Free Nachos in 15 Minutes

Bee and I just had some great nachos. The nachos were her idea. The chicken was mine. The chicken is optional for vegetarians, of course!

Gluten Free corn tortilla chips
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Chopped black olives
Salsa (GF label)
Sour Cream (leave out for vegan)
Diced Chicken Breast (optional for vegan) + spices

Prepare the chicken, chop the avocado and black olives.

Layer ingredients: tortilla chips, cheese, chicken, olives. Then microwave for 30-40 seconds or until cheese is nice and melty. Then add the diced avocado and salsa (on the side).

Setting Up a Gluten-Free Kitchen for Celiacs

One of the first things you’ll want to do after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease is to set up your kitchen in a way that minimizes chances of cross contamination between gluten and gluten-free foods. While some Celiacs feel it’s necessary to have an entirely gluten-free kitchen, living situations don’t always allow this. By taking some important precautions and educating your household on the dangers of cross-contamination, Celiacs and non-celiacs can co-exist peacefully!

Storing Food
A system that has worked well in our house is to store gluten and gluten free foods in separate cupboards or pantry areas. In doing so, newly diagnosed patients will not only prevent cross contamination of foods, but they will also be giving themselves a visual cue that further distinguishes their foods from those of the rest of the family.

I have found that late at night when I’m groggy, half-asleep, and searching for a box of cereal to snack on, I can lessen my chance of grabbing the wrong box if they are stored in different areas of the kitchen. This is especially important when first beginning a gluten-free diet, and following the necessary restrictions has not yet become automatic.

Storing items separately will also help when the one diagnosed is too young to understand the complexities of a food allergy. Even young children can quickly learn that “this is my cookie cabinet and that one is for everyone else!” Who doesn’t like having their own cookie cabinet?
The other reason for storing gluten products separately from gluten-free products is to avoid cross-contamination. We have all seen shelves in grocery stores that have little piles of white powder from leaking bags of bleached wheat. Because of this you may wish to put your wheat and other gluten flours into tightly sealed containers.

You should also store your wheat and other gluten flours on bottom shelves. This way if dust from the flour does happen to leak, as it settles downward, there will be nothing below it to contaminate. In the same manner, it would be wise to place breads and other gluten based products in the bottom of your refrigerator, preferably in a drawer that closes, like the veggie crisper. However, you could also use a plastic box with a lid to achieve the same result. This will minimize the chances of bread crumbs falling into the other foods.

Toasters and Ovens
Another important item to consider when setting up your Celiac friendly kitchen is your friendly little toaster. You will need to own two of them if you’re sharing your household with non-Celiac eaters. Each toaster should be used and kept in separate areas of the kitchen. They should also be of different colors or styles to help tell them apart. A “don’t feed me evil gluten!” post-it may suffice.

When sharing your conventional oven with non-celiac bakers, you will need to be certain the oven has been properly cleaned of residual gluten products that may be stuck on the ceiling or other places in the oven. You should also line the oven rack with foil (following the oven’s safety guidelines) as a further precaution against cross-contamination.

In some instances, you may find it easier to use condiments sold in squeeze-type bottles. You will still need to wipe the tips of the squeeze bottles where the product exits the containers, but you may find that this can work. If you live with family members who are able to understand why you are doing this, you can instruct them not to let the squeeze bottle’s tip touch their food items. I don’t recommend doing this if you have young children. They like drawing smiley faces right on the bread. It’s true.

In some cases, however, it will be necessary to buy condiments that don’t come in squeeze bottles. For these it is necessary to put them into separate containers. I save old plastic yogurt containers just for this purpose. Then use a sticker system to distinguish which are to be used for gluten products and which are being reserved for gluten-free foods.
Colanders, Spatulas and Other Utensils
When using colanders, spatulas, mixers, and other hard to clean utensils, you should always check after the item has been washed to be certain that there are no clumps of gluten pasta or gluten bread sticking to it. Sometimes they get into little cracks and have to be dug out. For this reason, you may even consider investing in separate cooking utensils.

Wooden spatulas fall into the same category as wooden cutting boards. The absorbent nature of wood is what makes it a problem. Tiny milligrams of gluten can be stuck on the surface. (It only takes a small amount of gluten to cause problems for people with Celiac Disease.) You may find it more convenient in the long run to either purchase two cutting boards, or to use a non-porous one. Shatter resistant glass cutting boards work well, as do marble cutting boards.
Because flour sifters are so difficult to clean, I strongly recommend that you use separate sifters. You will need to purchase a different brand or style so that you can differentiate between the gluten and the non-gluten used sifter. If you use stickers, they will likely come off in the washing machine and possibly damage your washer.

All that would be a good start, but I’m sure there’s more. Please add your kitchen safety ideas by leaving a comment!

Organic Food Primer III: Where In The Event You Secure The Food?

Like a price conscious shopper, I’ve discovered the very best prices for fundamental organic products like 1% milk, high omega-3 essential fatty acid eggs, and chicken come from wholesale suppliers–I have to keep my blinders on after i shop! Although I actually do shop periodically in particular organic chains like Whole-foods and Lower to Earth, particularly for top choice of supplements and gluten-free items, I additionally buy many organic meals inside my local grocery market chain when available (its smart to request these phones stock such products).

This list was put together as helpful tips for economically organic shopping according to my cumulative “wise-shopping” experience of three states. It consists of guidance that meals to purchase in each location according to availability and cost. Groups of food companies are listed alphabetically and therefore are not in rank order.


Highly urged for the majority of your organic food options. Registered as a member to aid the idea of community possessed food stores selecting meals they need. Co-operations are devoted to the idea of lengthy-term healthy sustainable food options that support the local economy.

Conventional food stores

Many large chain stores are supplying an growing choice of organic meals, at sometimes very huge discounts. Keep asking these phones stock organic and in your area grown meals.

Farmer’s marketplaces

Ideal for supporting local maqui berry farmers good prices in season. Ideally, make shopping in a maqui berry farmers market a weekly event, before you decide to secure other healthy meals.

Vegetarian shops

Costs are generally good specifically if you can purchase in large quantities number of quality supplements selection is restricted to vegetarian items but many shops frequently have tasty prepared and/or hot meals for convenient healthy foods on the run.


Huge assortment, generally high quality, but more costly than other stores. Excellent options for gluten-free and supplements. Some in your area grown produce more abundant when local organic production is nearby. Excellent choice of healthy take-out food.

Wholesale i.e. Cost-Co

Growing number of organic meals and periodic produce when you purchase carefully. When available organic meat, dairy, produce, juice and eggs all excellent prices.

Obviously, whenever possible grow what you could like herbal treatments, tomato plants, eco-friendly let’s eat some onions.

Finally, while organic is fabulous for health value, the simple truth is organic food is becoming large business with items traveling very far and often called organic, although not always the very best growing conditions, particularly for animal items. Ideally, the majority of the organic meals we buy is going to be grown and processed in your area, but given our desire to have variety as well as in present day global economy, this really is very challenging in many locations. To get it done will need changes (healthy changes) with what, how, when, and where we purchase our meals. Thus, in some instances there’s a obvious downside: purchasing in your area-grown items can market your local economy probably the most: purchasing quality organic sometimes supply you personally the very best health value, but may undermine local food production.

Cholesterol Basics

After reading Catherine Shanahan’s wonderful book “Deep Nutrition“, I decided to talk a little about Cholesterol and share some of the information that Catherine provided. I definitely recommend this book. Something that is largely misunderstood by most, and feared by others. I’m sure everyone has heard of LDL and HDL. These lipoproteins have a coating (called apoproteins) that enables the lipoproteins to circulate throughout your body without getting the insides (made of fat, called the lipid core) all over your arterial walls.

If your diet is healthy, your lipoproteins are full of essential fats, vitamins, and other good stuff. If you eat bad fat, your lipoproteins will be carrying bad fat as well and can cause the whole fat circulation system to break down. When the fat circulation system breaks down, people’s cholesterol numbers get out of whack. Lipoproteins contain some cholesterol, but mostly they contain triglycerides, other fatty nutrients (such as lecithin, choline, phospholipids), different amounts of fat-solube vitamins, and retinoids, all within a protein coat.

Nutrients that occur after your food is broken down by enzymes in the intestine, are absorbed into intestinal cells, which are called enterocytes. This is where the fat and fat-soluble nutrients are prepared for circulation through the bloodstream. Because fat particles will not dissolve in the blood, the intestinal cells wrap these balls of fatty nutrients in a protein coat. Lipoproteins that are made in the intestine are called chylomicrons. The protein coating that is made of apoproteins also serves as a type of barcode describing the particle’s origin and contents.

Once the packaged lipoprotein leaves an intestinal cell, it will travel through the bloodstream for several hours, completing many circuits. As it floats along, it deposits its fatty nutrients into the tissues that need them most. The lipid cycle can take many different routes. Fats can enter the circulation by way of the intestine or by way of the liver, even the skin. Fats can exit the cycle by being transported into a hungry cell, or by being exported out of the body through the liver’s bile.

The liver is like a transfer station. It separates the good fats from the bad. Once the liver has collected enough good fats, it will fashion its own lipoproteins (called VLDL), complete with new ID labels, and sends them back into the bloodstream.

Sugar seems to damage these lipoprotein labels. Over time, the process of glycation, stiffens cell membranes, leading to prediabetes and consistently elevated blood sugar levels. When the blood sugar levels are high, it will create an opportunity for sugar to gum up the protein labels on the lipoprotein particles.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): The Smart Way to do Cardio

If you’re like me, then when you think of cardio, you think of a long, boring, drawn out jogging/biking session. But it’s time to get out of the box that we’re living in, and to start thinking about cardio differently. It’s time to look at High Intensity Interval Training!

What is High Intensity Interval Training?

HIIT combines bursts of high intensity sprints with slower recovery stages. Typically, high intensity interval training should be done at a 2:1 ratio of recovery to work, and the work interval should last for 60 seconds. Your sprints need to last 60 seconds because this will completely exhaust your muscles of all their stored energy, and increases your resting metabolic rate for up to 24 hours due to excess post exercise oxygen consumption.

Because high intensity interval training pushes your body to its limits, you can forget about those boring hour-long cardio sessions and focus on 20-30 minutes cardio sessions that will give you results faster. Now you can have that flat belly and six pack you always wanted!

Benefits of HIIT

  1. Improved Cardiovascular endurance
  2. Increased adrenal elasticity
  3. Improves maximum oxygen consumption (V02 max)
  4. Increase in lean muscle mass – by activating your fast twitch muscle fibers you can burn fat faster and build lean muscle mass.
  5. Shorter training sessions will leave you with more time to enjoy the activities you love.
  6. Lowered risk of injury from over training.
  7. The variation in the intervals will make your workout less boring.

High Intensity Interval Training : Workout Example

High Intensity Interval Training workouts are in-frigging-tense! As such, they should be done up to 3 times a week to allow your body adequate recovery time.

Before you begin any high intensity interval training you should warm up. Do whatever you need to get your core body temperature up and your body loose. Normally, this can be done with a jog at 40% of your VO2 max in 10 minutes. Finish your warmup with some light stretching, and now its time to get this party started.

For your High Intensity Interval Training workout, you’re going to want to sprint at 75-100% of your VO2 max for 60-90 seconds. Then, you’re going to kick it down several notches, to a light jog or walk for 90-120 seconds. I prefer sticking with a light jog, mainly because I find it easier to push myself on the following sprint. Do 5-8 repetitions of the fast-slow combo, and you’re guaranteed to be sucking wind by the end.

This is just one example of High Intensity Interval Training. Keep in mind that High Intensity Interval Training can be done outdoors, or indoors with any Cardio machine in your local gym. So the next time you’re thinking about doing cardio, give High Intensity Interval Training a shot, you’ll see gains quickly as you increase the anabolic hormones in your body to increase your muscle mass and burn away fat. You’ll see results faster than ever before!

5 Benefits of the Paleo Solution

The Paleo Solution is not just a diet and lifestyle for getting rid of excess body fat–it improves your athletic performance too! You’ll notice improved recovery time, reduced muscle loss, enhanced immune system functioning, optimal muscle glycogen stores, and a more consistent training schedule, among other benefits.

Here are five major benefits of the Paleo Solution and how it improves athletic performance:

1. Increases the Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) content of your food:

One of the many benefits of the Paleo Solution is the increase in branched-chain amino acids. Lean meats are high in BCAAs, and since this is a staple of the Paleo Solution, you’ll be sure to get plenty of these. BCAAs are vital to recovery from exercise, providing your body with the nutrients it needs to repair broken down muscle tissue. During extended aerobic sessions, adequate levels of BCAAs are critical to preventing excess serotonin from collecting in your brain, which leads to you feeling sleepy–definitely a condition you want to avoid!

2. Promotes a net alkaline metabolism:

The benefits of the Paleo Solution are numerous, and by eliminating grains, legumes, and dairy you eliminate many net acidic foods. This prevents your body from having to breakdown muscle tissue to balance out your blood pH level, thereby promoting recovery and reducing the loss of muscle tissue.

3. Improves Your Omega-3/Omega-6 Ratio:

Lean meats and fish have superior Omega-3/Omega-6 ratios as compared to non-lean meats. Another of the many benefits of the Paleo Solution is to improve your Omega-3/Omega-6 ratio, which reduces systemic inflammation, and brings your ratio more in tune with ancestral norms. A lot of people only pay attention to Omega-3s, but Omega-6s are something you need to pay attention to also, as they are omnipresent in today’s food supply and are inflammatory in excess. Most people today have a ratio of 1:10 or more, and ancestral norms were in the 1:1 – 1:4 range.

4. Increases Trace Nutrients:

By including tons of fresh fruits and vegetables, you supply your body with a diverse range of potent antioxidant vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, thereby enhancing your immune system and improving athletic performance. Ramp up on veggies and fruits to help take your performance to the next level!

5. Replenishes Muscle Glycogen Appropriately:

By eating strategically, and only consuming carbohydrate heavy vegetables and fruits after intense aerobic/anaerobic exercise sessions (involving periods at 70% VO2 max or above), you will avoid excess deposition of carbohydrate as fat, and thoroughly replenish your depleted muscle glycogen stores.

Paleo Diet Baking: Hazelnut Flour

Place this phenomenal nut flour into your Paleo Solution arsenal for healthier living! Just like its amazing cousin almond flour, hazelnut flour is superior to wheat flour and rice flour because it has a lower glycemic index, higher protein content, and vastly superior trace nutrient profile. Sweeter and slightly coarser than its cousin almond flour, hazelnut flour will have you drooling Dogue-de-Bordeaux-style every time you eat it. Hook yourself up with some delicious hazelnut flour breads, pancakes and treats, and you’ll spice up your Paleo Solution menu with what is sure to be a favorite for years to come! Here’s the lowdown on why hazelnut flour is so damn good for you, and why you should include it in your paleo food list:


The hazelnut is the seed of the hazel, and is native to Europe and Western Asia. Turkey is by far the largest producer in the world (~75%). Italy, Iran, and the Northwestern US are very active in harvesting hazelnuts also.

Nutritional Comparison

Check out these tables and you’ll see exactly why hazelnut flour is nutritionally superior to other more traditionally used types of flour:

Macronutrients (Source: USDA)

Vitamins and Minerals (Source: USDA)


Don’t waste your money at the grocery store buying hazelnut flour. Instead, buy wholesale top quality hazelnut flour from NutsOnline.


Hazelnut flour stays fresh for awhile (~6 months) as long as it is sealed properly. Store your hazelnut flour in glass jars to avoid having endocrine disrupting hormones from your plastic containers contaminate your hazelnut flour. Refrigeration also helps to keep your hazelnut flour fresh.

Paleo Food List

This paleo food list isn’t meant to be followed item by item, but it’s meant to serve as a guideline to help you as you find the right balance for your life. Obviously, this is not a complete list of every single food item that is paleo friendly. But if you have the mental stability of a five-year old child and are going to whine about one vegetable that’s not on the list, then you can go get your information from some other site. We don’t deal with whiners and weaklings. Anyways, here are the basics that should be included in your paleo diet and your paleo food list.


Ideally, you will be eating lean and all natural meats… but seriously, all meat is fair game. Think about it. Cavemen scoured the lands hunting for sabre-tooth tigers and all sorts of wild game. And I’ll be damned if they didn’t make sabre-tooth tiger bacon. Meat is the crux of the Paleo diet and should make up the majority of your paleo food list. In the words of Joey Tribianni from Friends, “Meat, Good!”

Lean Beef – flank steak, lean ground beef, top sirloin steak, lean veal, chuck steak, beef liver, beef tongue, beef marrow etc.
Lean Pork
Poultry – chicken breast, game hen breast
Fatty Meats – Bacon, pork ribs, chick & turkey thighs and wings, fatty pork chops, lamb roasts, pork sausage, fatty pork roasts, leg of lamb, t-bone steaks
Other meats – Rabbit, Goat (any meat), alligator, bear, bison, caribou, elk, goose, ostrich, pheasant, quail, venison, wild turkey, wild board, and hell, even kangaroo is fair game
Fish – bass, bluefish, red snapper, cod, eel, shark, salmon, halibut, herring, mackerel, trout, tuna … basically all non-poisonous finned creatures

Fruits and Vegetables

When not gorging yourself on meat like a raging honey badger, you should be consuming tons of fruits and vegetables. And when I say tons I mean TONS. Fruits and vegetables have such low caloric densities that you won’t find them very filling. In fact, if you are really trying to lose your weight on the paleo diet, then eating good portions of fruits and vegetables is important for your daily consumption.

Paleo Friendly fruits and vegetables include pretty much every single one, except for starchy tubers (yams, potatoes, sweet potatoes), which can be consumed in moderation.

Fruits Include:
  • Apple
  • Avocado
  • Carambola
  • Pomegranate
  • Papaya
  • Peaches
  • Honeydew
  • Melon
  • Persimmon
  • Plums
  • Grapes
  • Watermelon
  • Rhubarb
  • Apricot
  • Lemon
  • Bananas
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cassava Melon
  • Orange
  • Pears
  • Lychee
  • Pineapple
  • Kiwi
  • Mango
  • And any other fruits

Vegetables Include:

  • Artichoke
  • Celery
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Pumpkin
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Radish
  • Seaweed
  • Carrots
  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumber
  • Bell Peppers
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes

Nuts and Berries

Nuts have a high caloric density, so if your goal is to shed fat, then you’ll want to regulate your intake to ensure maximum results. A few ounces a day should be enough for most people, but everybody’s body is different, so figure out what’s right for you to find the perfect balance for your life.

Nuts Include:

  • Almonds
  • Cashews

There are many benefits of the Paleo Solution, and by following the diet you’ll be sure to see improvements to your health.

Paleo Food List: What you can Eat in “Moderation”

This section of the Paleo food list really gets hazy. You’ll find that when you’re creating your Paleo food list that some people will recommend using these items in moderation, and some will say not at all.

Oils- olive, canola, avocado, walnut, coconut, flax-seed, etc.
You should consume 5-6 tablespoons or less per day if your primary goal is to lose weight. But I love stir frying my food and use oils in almost every meal I eat, and I have never had a problem losing weight. But again, everyone’s bodies are different.

Beverages- Beer, Coffee, Spirits, Wine, Tea
Let me begin by saying that these drinks are not Paleo friendly. But lets be honest. How can you not sit back and enjoy a cold one after a long day of work. The rule of thumb here is moderation. Drink enough to improve your sex life, but not to the point where it interferes with your goals.

Paleo Food List: What to Avoid

Now for the part that you’re all looking forward to… The part where I tell you what you can’t eat. With every diet out there, you’re going to be told you can’t eat certain things, and the same can be said for the Paleo Diet. Living a Paleo Lifestyle can be tough and this Paleo Food list is a testament to that.

My initial reaction to reading the list of foods i couldn’t eat was, “WTF!”. I wasn’t sure it was possible to live without the items on the anti- Paleo food list. My favorite meal is Fried Chicken and Waffles, which is probably the most non-Paleo friendly meal out there. So… yea… the Paleo Diet is definitely not for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of hard work to continuously say “no” to all the items on this list, but with the right attitude and some determination you can be reaping the rewards of the Paleo diet in no time. And for all you Chicken and waffles lovers out there… Don’t think that because you have to follow the paleo food list that you won’t ever taste the crunchiness, saltiness, and sweetness of Chicken and waffles ever again. Here we’ll be revealing several recipes that will have you eating Paleo friendly versions of all your favorite meals, so stay tuned!
