Hi guysSo I went to the eden festival in scotland last weekend (was a lot of fun), however eating paleo was soooo hard as there were no foods stalls that did anything paleo (it was all potatoes, pizza, cake and maybe the odd vegan thing like a... (more)
Have any of you ever tried earthworms? Are the ones you find in your garden safe? I heard that it's best to have them living in applesauce (organic, no sugar added applesauce I presume would be best) for 24 hours before you eat them so they clear... (more)
This is a very good overview on resources on foraging wild edible plants. http://foraging.com/#indsites Do you have other resources, texts links you like to share?
My grandpa used to find Morels in his front/back yard, in Indiana! So jealous, as I live in NYC and I'll have to drive to Jersey for a good spot I know. I love wild mushrooms! It's such a Paleo thing to eat/hunt. Or I supposed I should say,... (more)
A tip for finding morels is go places that have burned in the last few years. I haven't found any morels yet but I have been harvesting spring oyster mushrooms, nettles, false salmon seal shoots, oregon grape flours, and even a few fiddle heads.... (more)
This one is for all those expert foragers out there. My back yard is now starting to sprout grass after a rainy March, and since we haven't mowed yet I noticed a corner of the yard is dominated by these tufts of longer, heartier looking grass... (more)
Throw them at the neighbor's wandering dog pooping in my yard? Make wine? Let the crows eat them? Make preserves and kill my friends with a Christmas "Gift"? Eat them myself? Cut down the tree? Ack!!! I have read all of the fructose/fruit posts... (more)

There are a few "paleos" on message boards that I've seen that eat ONLY GROUND MEAT. ONLY. And if you question it, well Vilhjalmur Stefansson lived off of meat, so any meat will do. Not only do I find that unappetizing and psychologically... (more)
I happen to have a good local wild supply of beechnuts. They tend to be high up but it could be a fun challenge to use the climbing aspect of the gathering process as excercise. I have heard that if you roast them they are good but an acquired... (more)
As a kid I read a book called ???My Side of the Mountain??? about a young boy that ran away from home and lived in the hollow of a huge tree for almost a year. Even though it was a work of fiction, I remember clearly how I destroyed my Mom???s... (more)
In paleo times, we probably spent a fair amount of time wandering around looking for resources, be it food, water, or materials for toolmaking or shelters. Perhaps time was even spent collecting materials for artistic endeavors like cave... (more)
I am currently out of town for work related training and last night I gathered with some nice individuals I have never met. We drank wine and had conversations about numerous topics until 1am. It was a great time, however, this is very unusual... (more)
