Have you coined any new terms while waxing paleo?

Today a silly word popped into my head while I was observing the sheer extent of the presence of plastics in my house:

Paleonoid (adjective)--The fear that most everything you encounter in your daily life could be a Neolithic Agent of Disease.

Ha, thanks! I just started using it, but I was pretty sure it was possible it had been thought up before.

Me too! It's a great way to look at and simplify things. It could also be looked at like a stop light. Red = Stop, Yellow = Caution, and Green = Go :) Nice one!

I don't see dairy or honey as falling outside those lines, Nance. Now potatoes and rice? Ehhhh...I have some misgivings. I don't think they're Paleo or Primal. I don't feel like a total wonk when I eat them on the rare restaurant occasion, but they are not being invited into my home anytime soon.

You know, I really like this. My only true RED food is wheat, but I do try to severely limit my yellow zone. It's a good visual image, too, with the archery target background.

Ooh, I think I'm in that group as I make home-made yogurt--and then eat it. :-)) And, of course, there's the 2 mugs of coffee with heavy cream and a tsp of local honey. Yep, definitely pretending and loving it.

Disclaimer: I'm not being elitist or whatever

Paleotard noun, vulgar - Paleo people who do or say stupid things relating to paleo. Meaning derived from that of /b/tards on 4chan, can be used to describe the not-too-intelligent posters of Paleohacks. One could also extend the meaning to those who blindly follow paleo and don't understand what it's actually about.

People outside the paleosphere refer to paleos as paleotards: people who are strongly paleo and those who engage in 'reenactment'.

"Yellow Zone". Okay, so I see I'm really falling out of line here by not using "Paleo" prefix.

As I got started with Paleo, I saw it kind of as a bullseye. With the green zone in the center being nourishing paleo foods (grass fed meat, veggies, nuts), and the red zone on the outside being no-nos (wheat, processed foods, etc). Then there was the yellow zone, the zone that is up for dispute for many of us. Dairy. Dark Chocolate. Rice.

So, that is how I think of things when I eat. I keep track of how much nourishing vs yellow zone foods I eat. Living in the yellow zone is not hitting the center of the target, after all...

"Paleo Pretenders". People who want to be part of the paleo scene but also want to eat non paleo foods like potatoes, rice, whey powder etc while trying to convince us that it's like a better version of paleo. lol.

'Compound nutritional interest.'

That being that eating well today not only effects your physical and mental health today, but also tomorrow. More so puts you in an optimised state physically and psychologically giving you a higher propensity to choose to eat well in the subsequent days and thus further compound your well-being and your ability to continue to make good choices going forward.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compound_interest

Compound interest arises when interest is added to the principal, so that from that moment on, the interest that has been added also earns interest. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding.

Paleoriffic - When you try a new delightful paleo food (i.e., This spicy shrimp is Paleoriffic.)

Paleotized - Removal of all "bad" food and replacement with good food (i.e., I Paleotized my fridge last night.)

Those are the two I can think of right now. I have a degree in creative writing, so I tend to get a little carried away with the new words... :)

I've never seen it anywhere else, but I use Industrialized Food Complex often. It encompasses food companies, producers, the government, manufacturers, advertisers, marketers, stores. Very helpful.
