I'm trying to build muscle and get stronger by eating paleo. I'm 5'11 155lb so I'm rather scrawny but my max bench is excellent (240lb), my squat and deadlift numbers are embarrassing though. So I'm turning to the community for tips/advice... (more)

put them in a blender with coconut oil, coconut milk, fruit, and walnuts and see what happens? It sounds like a good idea in theory. Edit: Sorry I forgot about the 'dessert' part..and replaced the veggies with fruit. Add sugar if you dare. (more)

I peeled an HBE this morning and to my surprise the "white" was all grey! A dark grey at that. I looked at the yolk which was a beautiful creamy yellow, with no green edges. I was kinda freaked out and discarded it. Any idea why this would... (more)
