How to Go Primal with Food Allergies, Intolerances, and Restrictions

Published: in Health News by .

We Primal folks love our giant omelets, guacamole burgers, and dark chocolate smeared with coconut butter — but what about when those foods don’t love us back? Over the years, I’ve heard from countless readers with food allergies, food restrictions, and simple food preferences who worry that Primal might not be for them. These folks are interested in giving the Primal Blueprint lifestyle an honest shot, but they can’t eat certain foods, many of which enjoy an exalted place (real or imagined) in our community. So what’s the verdict? Can you go Primal without eating red meat? Coconut products? Avocado? Can it be done as a vegetarian? Are almonds essential? Food allergies and intolerances frequently represent nothing more than minor speed bumps in your path, but some are more tedious than others. How hard will it be for you to eat Primally with your specific dietary needs? Let’s find out. Then scroll to the bottom for some general food allergy FAQs. Tree Nut and Coconut Allergies — Wait, Are Coconuts Tree Nuts?? I’m allergic to tree nuts…and they are such a big part of the Primal Blueprint diet. Is it possible to still succeed on the plan in a healthy way without eating nuts? Definitely. I actually wouldn’t say that tree nuts are a “big part” of the eating plan. The centerpieces of Primal eating are animal products (meat, fish, fowl, eggs, and dairy products if tolerated) and produce (vegetables and in-season fruit). Nuts, seeds, and their derivative butters are extras that you can add as desired. They certainly aren’t necessary. Many people who are just starting out with Primal turn to nuts as their go-to snacks, because they’re low-carb, high-fat, and relatively convenient. This gives nuts the allure of essentiality. They are not. Nuts make a fine snack, sure, but they also tend to run pretty high in omega-6 fats. It’s also easy to overdo it on the nut butter and unintentionally undermine weight-loss goals. You won’t be missing much by avoiding nuts. You certainly won’t be missing anything that you can’t get from other foods. And the good news is, you can probably still consume coconut products. Technically, the FDA categorizes coconuts as tree nuts, but they’re more accurately classified as drupes, a kind of fruit. It’s possible to be allergic to both, so don’t pound a stack of coconut flour pancakes if you’re not sure about your coconut allergy status. Get tested by your allergist first. My daughter is allergic to almonds. What almond flour substitutes can I use in my recipes? Can I just substitute coconut flour for almond flour in Primal/paleo recipes? Coconut flour is probably going to be your best option, but it’s nothing like almond flour. Coconut flour is far drier, with more fiber and less fat than almond flour. You can’t substitute coconut flour 1:1 for almond flour without getting a very different final product. I always recommend looking for a recipe that has been tested with the flour you want to … Continue reading “How to Go Primal with Food Allergies, Intolerances, and Restrictions”

Packed Lunch Ideas: Alternatives to Sandwiches

Published: in Health News by .

The first week of school, you may get creative with packed lunches, but most people start getting into a lunch routine that can become boring. These non-sandwich packed lunch ideas are sure to liven up your lunchboxes. If you’re in a rut when it comes to lunches, whether it be for school or the office, try these Primal alternatives to sandwiches!       Buffalo Ranch Chicken Stuffed Peppers Lunch Recipe Ingredients 1 1/4 lbs. chicken breast/chicken tenders 1 1/2 tbsp.

Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce 3 peppers, sliced vertically with seeds removed Fresh dill, to garnish Directions Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the chicken with the olive oil, pepper, dill, garlic, salt and juice from half of a lemon. Lay the chicken out on a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer. Shred the meat with two forks. Add the juice from the remaining half of a lemon, celery, onion, ranch, and buffalo dressings and mix together. Scoop the pulled chicken into the pepper halves and top with chopped dill.   Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps Lunch Recipe Ingredients 1 1/4 lbs. chicken tenders/breast 1/2 sliced onion 1 1/2 tbsp.

Shred the chicken and mix the chipotle lime mayo in with the chicken and onion mixture. Lay a square piece of parchment out in front of you in a diamond shape, with the sharp edges pointing north, south, east and west. Lay 3 pieces of lettuce next to one another horizontally, then 2 or 3 more pieces of lettuce vertically so that you have a bed of lettuce for your wrap. Spread out a scoop of chicken salad on the lettuce wrap. Place a slice of bacon and red pepper on top, along with a few slices of avocado. Carefully take the bottom piece of parchment (the piece closest to you) and fold it over the wrap, like how you’d roll a burrito. Wrap it tightly so that the lettuce on the parchment folds over the fillings. Tuck the sides of the parchment in towards the middle and continue rolling … Continue reading “Packed Lunch Ideas: Alternatives to Sandwiches”

Comment of the Week
“I regularly talk to strangers. I rarely find someone who is rude about that, one woman in California while we were on vacation was memorable but apparently she thought I was a “nothing” and not worth her time, ok then, we don’t have to talk. I ride the train sometimes and talk to people who seem to be ok with it. One was a person who just got out of prison, I knew the judge that put him there and another was a person that knew where I worked (at the jail courtroom) and recognized me. Both were nice, pleasant people who were getting their lives on the right track. I got to color with a young person on a flight, taught me to bring colored pencils or crayons and coloring books with me on trips. I look directly in people’s eyes (because it’s not offensive where I live) and smile at them. One person walked by, came back and thanked me for the smile. I like talking to people, probably learned it from my mom.”
