Paleo Heaven? What does yours look like?

So do you think, in Paleo Heaven, you would finally be able to eat cheese with no gastrological upset? Smoked gouda for eternity? What's your Paleo Heaven look like? (Obviously mine includes some sort of taste-buds, hence corporeal body, that derives orgasmic pleasure from cheese).

Sorry to hear that... my brother is the same way, except my parents never actually moved for him! He's the only boy and the baby of the family, so he pretty much does and gets what he wants. I'm pretty conflicted on where I live - I love the food, the weather, the land, the flowers and trees... but I hate most of the people. And cheers for homesteading!!! I'd love to if I could, but I don't know that it would be possible in the US, and where I'd want to move mightn't be so hospital for the food I'd want to grow there.

My family was stupid. We moved because my brother wanted to. My parents spoiled him and always do what he wants, no matter how unreasonable. You'd think he was God himself. Anyway, flirty girls, easy sex before marriage, sporty cars and a pool on your backyard; he was so in love with this country. So my family gave up the VERY good life that my dad worked so hard for... and we moved. Since I was a minor I had to come along too. And now my life is here, if I go back home I have to start all over again. BUT, I might go back sometime anyway, when I have enough money to buy land to homestead! :-D

In Paleo-heaven, I'm not tied to my office job, so I have time to sleep as long as I need to, eat hot meals that aren't out of a Tupperware, and do as much BJJ as I want. I would live in a major city with actually decent public transit and bike paths, but with plenty of parks and open spaces. I would have a tree fort in my backyard, with an electric outlet so I could work up there with my laptop. And a hammock for afternoon naps. And a water fountain, because this is heaven and I get what I want.

Actually, while I'm in heaven, I want a full gym in my own garage, so I don't have to leave the house to get my deadlift on.

I would be able to eat whatever I wanted without getting sick. I would have an unlimited supply of Brie cheese, organic kale, and wild-caught salmon, plus artisan pickled foods of every variety. (this is Paleo heaven so I'm assuming I'm not allowed to gorge myself on Nutella-flavored gelato and chocolate-covered raisins...) I would have a farmer's market down the street with a butcher or three within easy walking distance, and my community would be completely devoid of judgmental vegans.

Also, I want a pony.

Hmm about the cheese thing, have you tried GAPS diet? After living in USA for a few years I developed really awful food intolerances that kept expanding to new foods (milk -> grains -> tomato -> spinach -> apples -> lettuce -> nuts -> beans and so much more...) but after GAPS diet I can eat these again, but also try digestive enzymes in the meantime (buy one that comes from pig pancreas and has acid booster)

I can eat all my favorite foods, the foods my mother makes, Roasted squid stew, egg/potato cod-fish with black olives, grilled sardines with caramelized onion/tomato sauce, seafood tomato/pepper stew... Everything my mother makes is Paleo.

I don't really like SAD foods so... Paleo Heaven for me would be :

  • living in a beautiful sunny island where everyone always have a bright smile on their face and walk with a spring in their step

  • with lots of gorgeous men

  • have my personal fisherman so I can have the freshest sardines and squid

  • Fresh milk, fermented raw cheeses from the neighbor grass-fed cows (I don't think dairy is bad if it's done right and the person has healthy digestive system)

  • Ice cream my big sister makes herself (again, from good local milk and fruits from our or a neighbor's backyard)

  • Pinot noir wine my family makes, from grapes we grew on our land.

Incidentally, I had all this in the little beautiful island I was raised in, what the heck am I doing in USA...?! Haha...

Maybe Paleo Heaven would be just having my mother cook for me everyday.

My Paleo heaven would have lots of puff pastry stuffed with my homemade preserved pears, dried cherries, and brie. And the grilled cheese from Soho South in Savannah with smoked gouda, Cheddar, gruyere, and pimiento aioli on rye bread with creamy tomato basil bisque. Or the grilled cheese from Wrecking Bar in Atlanta with sharp cheddar and Muenster with tomato and bacon with a side of braised kale and the fried calamari arugula salad with cherry peppers and saffron aioli. And the black bean and rice soup from the Vortex. With tons of sweet tea and microbrew beer to wash all that down with.

All those things, I do still eat very occasionally, but it would be nice to be able to pig it up on all those things and still feel fine!

Paleo haven?

To possess a metabolism that requires no attention to what one consumes.

I've seen a few people like this, utterly not concerned with type and quantity, eating seemingly endless amounts of junk and normally taboo foods yet maintaining a titanium waistline and unblemished skin.

In effect, to be in paleo haven one transcends paleo. :)

Ha. I'd have an avocado tree in the back yard, and every avocado I'd pick would be perfect. I'd wake up to a bowl of bacon, eggs and broccoli every morning. Hot coffee would come out of a spout in my kitchen sink, ready to rock with the perfect amount of whipping cream in it. I'd do nothing all day but play with my dogs. And if there was no playing with dogs, it would be drinking coffee and reading books.

Interestingly enough, my heaven really only involves breakfast. I don't really miss any of the old foods I ate, they made me feel like crap. But, if there was ever a paleo old fashioned doughnut or a croissant, I'd be first in line for it.

In my paleo heaven I would have liver, eggs, onions and chanterelle mushrooms for breakfast and for dinner I'd alternate between huge, super rare steaks, half chickens with the skin still on, and pork roasts and eat these with either big steaming piles of veggies and sweet potatoes with hunks of Kerrygold butter or with big salads full of multi-colored veggies and some kind of mustard dressing. I'd get to eat this way whether I was living in a house or out backpacking in the woods. And it wouldn't cost very much money.

Id hate to live in any one place, with one unchanging life, eternally. That would suck. Life is about surprises, challenge and change. Nobody places the computer games where you win all the time. So heaven would suck.

But more to answer the question, life would be much better if, for me, if communties where tight small communities of 1 hundred or so, linked by electric rail and spaces of forest, who had no sex-touch hang ups, no hunting or nature hang ups, no captalism, no politicians, no global corporations.

Where the forest and the beauty of nature was still around us, where technology was made to suit us, 100%, not the other way around, where all street lights and other lights dimmed and changed colours in the late evening, everything wasnt covered in concrete but grass or at least softer materials, people still beleived in connecting to nature, growing things, foraging, using plants herbally, looking into the mystery of the night sky, or the creation of the universe with awe and wonder.

Where we could get a good nights sleep, eat good unchemical food, laugh, play and enjoy each other.

Where people still understood the subconcious and dreamlike nature of conciousness and mind instead of lived in pure denial of emotion and subjectivity.

Where science had more room for subjective accounts, and was less stuck in legacy.

Where there was no such thing as "excercise", but instead only more fun or practical natural whole body activities, like walking, sprinting, martial arts and wrestling, hiking, climbing, jumping, carrying, hunting, mountaineering and sports.

Where everything in our society and environment was suited to us, and our natures.

And just while we are here, so that we can sustain our technology and ease of life well, and focus on fun and each other - let machines do the work on all the boring repetitive stuff, like making clothes and technology.

Well, okay, maybe thats not heaven, its just how Id prefer the world to be :P

In paleo heaven I would have the time to learn about edible plants in the Pacific Northwest, so I could learn to live off the land. And in paleo heaven there would be no god damned money. And instead crapping my life away online, I would be PLUGGED IN just watching the evening campfire.

In paleo heaven everyone would enjoy robust health and wouldn't have to question whether something was healthy for them or not, because it all would be produced naturally and it would instinctively feel right to eat this way (and no one would be filling our foods with ingredients that they know will make us sick) .
