I got into a discussion with a vegetarian friend of mine and was a little throw off by his arguments. Mostly when he said that humans weren't evolved to eat meat because we don't have sharp canines, we have teeth like a cow. I really didn't know... (more)

I don;t know where you are, but herring, mackerel, dover sole, flounder, plaice, cod, halibut etc are all brilliant and delicious. I don't think it is possible to overeat fish so enjoy! And don't forget to eat some shellfish - super healthy too. (more)

My guess = No. Fermenting a vegetable doesn't remove the lectin, saponin or alter the capsaicin content of the nightshade itself (as far as I know), so my guess is that you should still avoid them. The lectin,... (more)

I hate vegetables.  All of them.  No matter how I prepare or cook them.  Perhaps I'm missing something but I don't see any reason, nutritionally, why I wouldn't be fine just eating meat, fish, bone broth, tubers, fruit, berries,... (more)

As evidenced by the foods you listed, green leafies obviously aren't the only healthy way to get more plants in your diet.  Berries, nuts, and many others are very nutrient dense, and combined with the fish, meat, and bone broth, I don't see... (more)

I think it may depend on your weight. Get your BMI down to about 22 or something like that and you might feel sexy again. Also get enough sleep. Read porn or erotica - lots of women do. However does it matter if it's low? You're 23 so quite young... (more)

They seem to make the desirable fizzy&sour kombucha when fed white sugar. But with brown sugar, the water the kombucha is in remains sweet and flat.

Since you're not likely to find any, try seafood from Newport or McGrath's. I was in Corvallis last night and had some excellent bacon guacamole at del Alma. They had a lot of tapas and charcuterie that could pass for paleo.
