I don't have access to fancy grass fed beef bones. I do have access to supermarket beef bones. If I use the supermarket bones in my bone broth, cool & allow the fat the rise to the top, and skim it off & throw it away, is that ok? Is... (more)

I recently picked up a split half from a new beef provider. My guy uses a meat processor that's close to where I live. It is a meat store/processor and they do a lot of deer at this time of year. They were very busy at the time of my processing... (more)

What foods are the least bad to buy conventional? I was looking for a few from each general category: some proteins, vegetables, fruits, nuts and oils. I don't want better or perfect to be the enemy of good, so I'm doing what I can with what I... (more)
All my life I have been eating conventional eggs that were pale yellow. I don't know when this changed, but I noticed this year that certain brands of conventional eggs that I buy are deep orange-red. Are these eggs pastured, or are the chickens... (more)
Feel free to add to these categories - they are in no particular order! Would you say that 1 or more, or any combo of the following characterize the conventional wisdom crowd (in no particular order): 1) ignorant/unaware - confused and/or... (more)

There are lots and lots of threads dealing with "paleo on a budget". However, I'm interested to hear from folks who have faced a sudden budget shift. Maybe you: Found the house of your dreams and are now paying more for your mortgage than you... (more)
When I was laid off, Whole Foods was no longer on my shopping list. I have a Trader Joe's in my neighborhood, so I started paying attention to their deals, and I also paid attention to the many farmer's markets in my area. I started buying... (more)
Overcoming what Conventional Wisdom has taught us may take a while to sink in, but it obviously works. What is your favorite shattered myth of CW that you have challenged and defeated?
