paleo is gonna be my bitch! =D
You can essentially make your own flours with all different types of nuts, coconut. I’ve only made almond flour (with blanched and regular almonds) and coconut flour from fresh coconuts.
I first make almond or coconut milk, then I take the leftover pulp and dehydrate it, then use a blender (I use a Blendtec, which is a high powered blender), to grind it into a flour (it only takes less than a min.
I’ve made cakes, cookies, muffins, cupcakes so far. I’ve never made pasta, even when I was eating wheat.
If you don’t want to make your own flours, you can buy them at a natural foods store, some big chain grocery stores carry this stuff (but I find them more expensive), Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods. But, it’s not cheap.
You can make a garlicky red sauce to go with a lot of dishes. I also make all my own sauces, rather than buy store bought as I can completely control what goes into things, and it’s way less expensive. Tastes much better.
I have a spiralina, which allows me to slice some veggies into noodles, so it’s not just eating spaghetti squash. We eat spaghetti zucchini, apples, pears, Mexican squash, parsnips, etc. It’s different, but the homemade pestos I add with it are so flavorful.
There are a lot of recipes in my blog that are Paleo friendly. Most are easy to make. Check it out – Doris’ Blog Recipes.
A Staggering Rat of Heartbreaking Something or Other "Oor Ratty. Your Ratty. A'body's Ratty."
I bought from the Mashed Yeast Emporium. I turn to you for an idea for a delicious way to empty it before it expires.
P.S. I have no dietary restrictions and will eat anything that is not nailed down.
I have tons of recipes in my blog, as well as links to other food bloggers that use coconut flour.
You cannot use this as the same as wheat flour, as coconut flour is very, very dense. A little goes a long way. In order to make coconut flour lighter, you need to add a lot more eggs.
I can’t remember right off the bat, but if you make cupcakes with this, you’ll use 1/2 cup coconut flour with 6 eggs, some baking soda, cream of tartar.
My kids love the cilantro chicken nuggets I make, which I dust it with coconut flour & ground flaxseed, or almond meal. These are sooo yummy.
My blog is at: Doris’ Blog. I have pictures for some of the recipes.
Hope that works for you, SR.

just curious as someone i follow on Facebook just posted a pic of them.
I have heard of them, but I have not tried them. There are many things that exist that are Paleo friendly, but the cost of things are pretty expensive compared to non-Paleo.
I’m trying to stick with things I can actually get at my local groceries without spending too much. Even Whole Foods is pretty expensive and it’s not within my budget right now to shop there too frequently.
Hence, I think the option of making my own pasta noodles is more economically feasible. However, I was never a HUGE pasta fan, just a rice fan. So, it makes it probably a little easier for me than you in terms of the pasta texture you might want.
