Been paleo for a few months now, but recently i had some corn at a family dinner and it's like i fell in love with it all over again. Corn is one of those neolithic foods that i actually miss, along with sweet peas and white rice. What's so bad... (more)

Apparently, Dow has developed a plant-based cellulose that mimics gluten attributes and helps gluten-free bread, pasta and dough taste more like the real thing. It is a little unclear what this actually is but it looks like it might be some sort... (more)

Been reading more and more about our food supply. About Monsanto, seed patents, and GMO food. I already avoid wheat, soy , and corn.. On nutritional basis, but their GMO status is just as scary to me, if not scarier. Just like those mutant... (more)
