After a simple, modified Paleo diet reversed her multiple sclerosis, one doctor is exposing health care and big pharma’s dirty secret: Prescriptions don’t make you well.
Maybe now that some doctors are turning to paleo to heal themselves, we’ll start to get the reform from Big Pharmacy that we need (but probably not).

For all of my readers in the UK and Ireland. Henry Croft of GymTalk, a site that focuses on fitness and nutrition, has announced that GymTalk partnered with a butcher to offer an amazing deal on premium Irish Grass Fed Steak Mince – 4kg for just £10. Being a stupid American, I have no idea if that’s a good deal or not, or what steak mince is for that matter. But Henry assures me it’s a great deal, so check it out!

Many of you will be buying ingredients this weekend to make matzoh ball soup for Passover on Monday night. If so, maybe you’ll want to try this paleo version. The first time I made noodles with my paleo matzoh balls, because it’s the first time I made them since I discovered the wonder of daikon! My grandmother used to call the noodles “lokshen” (that’s the spelling I looked up, but it sounds more like “luckschen”), which is Yiddish for noodles. I’m sure from the photo below, she’d approve of how it turned out!
Happy Passover and Happy Easter! Here are some reference links that go with the video:

Some contacts of mine at Food Network have asked me to share this with you all. Good luck!
As I talked about before, my grandmother used to make farfel (see article below) almost every Friday night. But when Passover rolled around, there were extra dietary restrictions than the usual Kosher laws (I wasn’t and still am not Kosher, but my grandmother was). Foods had to be Kosher for Passover, and regular farfel wasn’t. So she’d make something called matzoh farfel, which I absolutely HATED! Anyway, even if you are Kosher, my paleo farfel has no leavened bread in it, or any grains whatsoever, so it’s still Kosher anytime of year! If you’re cooking this Passover, I highly recommend it as a nice side dish. Check it out, from my original recipe of a few years ago.

If not, you can read about it here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farfel
Basically it’s pellet shaped egg pasta made from wheat or barley flour (definitely not paleo). It’s a favorite side dish for a traditional Jewish meal, and it was a Friday night staple in my Grandmother’s kitchen. Usually combined with caramelized onions and mushrooms, it’s one of my all-time favorites. The first time I tasted my cauliflower couscous, the texture immediately reminded me of farfel, so I used it as a base to recreate farfel caveman style. Simple to make, just follow the recipe for paleo couscous, and add in sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions and you’re done (I sauteed them in olive oil, but for even more authentic flavor use pasture raised chicken fat). I’ll be making this one a lot. Check it out:
