I'm really interested in food storage at the moment. I know a lot of people have got into fermenting as a way of storing food for longer (and as a source of pro-biotics), but I'm wondering if anyone can point to a good book or web site that... (more)

Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf or Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint? Based on both content and ability to comprehend (meaning, not so science-y that it goes over my head and all intention of the info is lost). What's your choice?

Anyone read "Grain Brain" and what did you think about it? Seems to be a new name to the Paleo community. Never hurts to have another person with impressive details carrying our message of course, with some extra research behind it. (more)

I read "the sugar fix" but it contained very many ideas which I've grown to reject over the last year, although the fructose info is probably correct. Are there any paleo friendly books which go into the evils of fructose? Thanks, Mike (more)
