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 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 [...]
One of the big excuses that I see people make when it comes to eating “clean”, whether that’s paleo or an elimination or rotation diet is that they can’t afford to buy organic food or grass-fed meat. Somehow, they think that if they can’t do that, they can’t do the program.
The first step to [...]
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.
