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 belong to a meat CSA that provides 5 lbs. of pastured pork and one pastured chicken per month. Last week, we had our “Indian Summer” here in the Shenandoah Mountains, and my farmer lost a lot of his broilers from heat stress. He’s pretty new to the farming game and even has [...]
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 [...]
I found an interesting Russ Roberts podcast with Art DeVany. The first 25 minutes is about baseball and steroids, and while I’m not a baseball nut, I still found DeVany’s ideas quite interesting.
The rest of it is about evolutionary diets and fitness. It’s definitely worth hearing, no matter which thing you’re interested in.
The Whole9 folks are doing another Pure Paleo 30-day challenge. You’ll find an explanation of it here, and if you’re looking to cut the crap out of your diet, there’s a lot of support available.
The “Tough Love” section applies to ANY dietary changes you want to make. The whole article is absolutely worth [...]
Well, I didn’t get my actual menu items up, and it’s not going to happen before I go hiking. Work has been taking up my time that I would normally use for blogging. We all have to work some time!
Anyway, I’m not sure what the legality of this is, honestly, but this magazine [...]
After the yelling fest that happened at Free The Animal over white potatoes, I’m really hesitant to even refer to my diet as “Paleo-ish”. If there’s a nice, tidy word for not eating grains and legumes, I’m that. I suppose primal would cut it. At the moment, I’m not eating white potatoes [...]
