In general, I think the online Paleo community is too hard on The New Evolution Diet. I experienced bafflement at a few things, and they are all on this list at Melissa McEwen’s site. In particular, throwing out egg yolks is, I think, ludicrous. Choline is a critical nutrient, and it’s all [...]
I’m currently reading Art DeVany’s new book (The New Evolution Diet) – only the Kindle version is out at the moment.
His basic rules for eating are much more tight with the fat than what I know a lot of Primal/Paleo types eat. I have to say that, to be honest, I cannot free-eat Paleo [...]
I’m going to start out plugging this blog entry at Tribe of Five, because it echoes a lot of my feelings on this subject.
I’m not willing to carry the paleo placard in lieu of common sense. No, we don’t eat grains, legumes, or sugar. Yes, we eat plenty of grass fed meats, saturated fats, and [...]
I read a number of blogs from Paleo eaters, and while I enjoy them, I’ve been seeing a lot more…excuses lately. These so-called excuses are almost always about non-paleo recipe ingredients.
Part of the problem is that every day paleo mostly consists of meat and veg and maybe some fruit for dessert or some nuts [...]

I’m pretty big on diet shake-ups: if what you’re doing is not working for you then change it. Doing the same thing (or more of it) and expecting better results is just *nuts*, if you think about it.
Just in the last few months I have finally wrapped my brain around the idea that insulin [...]
I’ve made this marinade twice now, and both times it was excellent, but I think I got better results today.
1/4 cup fresh squeeze lime juice
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup diced onion
1 t. sea salt
4 garlic cloves
Rooster sauce to taste (I used a goodly squirt)
The lime and pineapple work really well together. I used boneless [...]
After spending the afternoon at the St. Louis City Museum, I’m starting to think fun exercise is something I need fit in every week.
The grind that occurs at the gym is a big reason why I don’t go to one.
I don’t really do any exercise I don’t enjoy. If I don’t like it, I [...]
