This is why I ignore pretty much all requests to try "paleo" products for my blog. They are all garbage. I work with local farmers on infrastructure projects and I KNOW you can make convenient jarred/packaged things without crap!oil and other... (more)
Yes, you read that correctly, I enclosed "eating" in quotation marks. Whaffing is a new way of consuming food, without all that pesky, out-dated business of actually chewing, swallowing and absorbing nutrients. Le Whaf is a futuristic new... (more)
I purchased some Spectrum Butter Flavored Veg Shortening--it is really just Palm Oil and the natural flavoring is from Sunflower oil. Is this Primal OK ?
I've been reading alot more lately on environmental effects on our food. I came across a very disturbing report about my favorite non water beverage... Apparently my green tea(and other types) contain significant levels of fluoride.. I filter... (more)
In reviewing questions under the nightshades tag, I know there are some paleohackers who have eliminated nightshades from their diet. But more generally, where do nightshades stand in terms of the paleodiet? Are they in or out? Or are they... (more)
An amazing heap of information: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2963728494205235281# *Mod note: I made this into a question, since this is a question site :) (more)
In your opinion, what food (or "food product") symbolizes or represents all that is wrong with the Neolothic Diet? A question was asked previously about the worst neolithic ingredient, but I'm curious about what food item that non-paleo folks eat... (more)
It's summer time and when I hear that annoying ice cream truck roll through the neighborhood to sell neolithic toxins to the poor ignorant children sometimes I just want to throw a rock at it. Anyone else feel similar?
Sometimes I eat neolithic junk (I don't like most neolithic/processed foods, so usually it's ice cream...I have to like it to eat it) that I KNOW isn't good for me but I tell myself it's not that bad here and there. I know it's not the end of the... (more)
I read this NYT article featuring David Kessler a couple of years ago and it really resonated with me. Here's an excerpt giving the gist of things: When it comes to stimulating our brains, Dr. Kessler noted, individual ingredients aren???t... (more)
Specifically, what ingredients, additives or process changes glorious meat into carcinogenic junk food? Nitrates/Nitrites are in contention(veggies have them too) but please chime in on them too, I'm not convinced of their safety... (more)
I've found that I have to supress the urge to chastise people everywhere for eating poison and for not knowing better! I have to restrict myself from lecturing on the evils of sugar and wheat I have to restrain from interrupting someone talking... (more)
I'm just in my third month of going paleo/primal, and I've started to notice that some foods that were staples for years now make me cringe and my internal voice shouts 'poison! DO NOT WANT!!!' I've been finding it an interesting Way to track my... (more)
Do you avoid bottled water or use only BPA free bottles? Do you walk wide circles around smokers? Do you buy strict organic, with care to the runoff near the farm? Do you cook only in cast-iron instead of Teflon? Flouride free... (more)
-I have always only cooked in cast iron and all of my cutting boards are wooden. -I only drink my own well water. -Not only do I avoid smokers, I won't make eye contact, LOL. When the mood stikes me, I even have a wee drama that I enact for them... (more)
I discovered, to my dismay, that there are scary neolithic ingredients in all SORTS of products. For my case, it was some Dove moisturizer that turned out to be basically soybean oil and detergents (seriously!). My face became leathery and red... (more)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
