Mine kinda suck. I've tried converting all my friends and family with mixed results. Most of my family now talks about nutrition more. It's a topic that has thankfully replaced political debates at the dinner table and in the living room. I... (more)

This is strange to me: humans, just by observations, can figure out what most animals eat, and far beyond the simplistic terms like carnivore, omnivore, herbivore. Cows and goats for example, just eat grass and bark in the case of goats. Sure they... (more)

My day revolves around being entertained either by the internet or television. I would really like to cut them out, but it's so hard! What are your thoughts?
I'm reminded of the old saying "The difference between pharmacology and toxicology is Dosage." Enjoy your entertainment - nothing wrong with that. Just make sure you're not consumed by it.
Would make any modifications to Paleo diet if no grass-fed meat, no wild-caught fish, no organic veggies and no pastured chicken/eggs were available? I understand that principles are the same but would you keep 100% the same or try to make some... (more)

How exactly do birth control pills destroy the gut? What does it mean when someone says that? I went on b/c years ago to clear up my skin. Totally worked, but not completely. Then I discovered Paleo in hopes that would clear up what I had... (more)
