I can't read, for a minute, I thought you were drinking alcoholic beer for the proclaimed benefits. I would ditch the stuff, but in reading more about NA beer, it doesn't seem bad and might actually boost the coq10 content of the milk. ... (more)

I don't believe in the 80/20 rule, I think it is best to be 100% paleo. After being paleo for a while you won't have any cravings. Although that's not to say you can't have any treats every now and then, just make sure they're not too non-paleo,... (more)
