Does anyone have suggestions/recipes for soft, easy-to-chew paleo party foods? I recently had a wisdom tooth removed and it's the holiday season so I need ideas/suggestions/recipes for soft, easy to chew paleo party foods that won't get lodged in... (more)
There are various threads about Thanksgiving dishes: http://paleohacks.com/questions/79366/thanksgiving-what-was-your-favorite-dish http://paleohacks.com/questions/79037/what-thanksgiving-dish-are-you-excited-about-preparing-paleo But, I... (more)
If you could be born in any time period into any tribe/culture, which would it be? Would you be born into the paleolithic as a lone caveman? Or a modern hunter gatherer tribe like an aborigine? What would you choose?
I'm amazed how this website has changed. Lustig is taken more and more seriously, low-carbing is very popular, ... but the arrogance is sky-high. Kruse, Richard Nikoley, Kurt Harris, Gary Taubes, ... all think they are smarter than everyone else.... (more)
For the sake of argument, Let's say you're stuck in a jungle with your freind and have not eaten in about a week, would you kill him/her and eat them? I probably would. I would like to eat a paleo person. More omega 3's than your typical grain... (more)
Mark Sisson recommends intervals of play, right? I was thinking of buying a 'rebounder' (mini-trampoline) to use whenever I have a spare 5-10 minutes or so... It would be loads of fun with music, no? I just have trouble getting activity in with... (more)
Thanks for the responses. It was a calcium issue. Increasing my calcium completely eliminated the gas. Ray Peat strikes again.
In the comments for http://paleohacks.com/questions/82462/does-anyone-else-sneak-a-look-at-other-peoples-shopping someone suggested a secret handshake or a badge or button that would let other people know you were paleo. I thought it was a great... (more)
Suppose I couldn't cut costs from my 77 bucks a week of ground beef, fish, and sweet potatoes. Give me examples of Paleo lifestyle changes for people on a budget - examples that enhance our lives and bring them more into line with what our... (more)
Me? I prepare for my hunt by shopping the overcrowded Whole Foods in the city with a very short list of items in mind. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UFc1pr2yUU# I simply couldn't resist. :) (Feel free to close if you feel too off topic.) (more)
I hope this question makes sense! When I first started Paleo and found Paleo Hacks, I read through a lot of questions and answers before posting. I would report back to my newly Paleo friends at the gym that weren't really interested in... (more)
Reading up on the recommendations of the so-called "Spartan Diet" had me musing, "Oh, please; if you were going to model your diet and fitness upon the regimen of an ancient warrior culture famed for strength, battlefield prowess, self-defense,... (more)
So I love eating paleo; all of the health benefits, the lack of calorie counting, and the overall happier lifestyle. However, there are certain moments when I feel the desire to enjoy a fine cigar, a quality beer, and maybe indulge on something... (more)
Today I heard a strange, funny but interesting story on the news. Apparently somebody, maybe a group of people have done the following. They took breads out of an automatic bread vending machine, and replaced it with vacuum packed animal heart... (more)
Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I hope it's not true. Why? Because it reminds me of the type of "guerilla" crap that I often hear about from the vegan/PETA side of things. I don't want us to turn into that.
There are so many inspiring paleo success stories shared here that I can't resist asking: Did you use a large and/or small reward system? Of course getting fit and healthy is ultimately the largest reward of all, but what I'd like to know is... (more)
In typical male form, rather than rewarding myself when I hit a milestone, I invest in a bunch of clothes so that I stand to lose a lot of money if I regain the fat.
Okay so today driving to work I had a thought of who would be on the faces of PALEO rushmore. Just a fun idea, I know nothing serious. Took it on step further and tried to rationalize my picks by comparing them to the current faces on the real... (more)
In the past few years I've received a few magazine subscriptions for free, but having read their diet and exercise advice I found myself glad that I hadn't paid anything for them! Of course the routine offenses include recommendation of healthy... (more)
I ran across the Whole9 Healthy/F-Off Scale again today and thought I'd ask fellow PaleoHackers to post their healthy/f-off scales. The scale is designed to measure foods along the y-axis for healthiness, and "the degree to which you will tell... (more)
From the original posts' context it seems the stuff that's high on the F-Off scale but low in health is what you deem truly cheat-worthy; in other words it'll do zero for your health but it is so good that you are willing to throw caution to the... (more)
...and instantly thought: "Bad news, Roger. At the rate you're going you'll lose the weight much faster (and less lucratively) than you think." Did you have any nonpaleo friends/family send it to you as "evidence" of conventional wisdom? :) (See... (more)
Here is one- before paleo was 'paleo', Banting was there. great prize-winning summary article (Sophie Coe Prize, 2002 Oxford Symposium on Food History): http://www.second-opinions.co.uk/banting.html full text (free):... (more)
This is a great topic because many of these texts are free. Here is Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price. And My Life With The Eskimo by Vilhjalmur Stefansson (famous for experimenting with all-meat diet, proving it could support... (more)
Not a question but I thought the community might like this video. This guy's farm lets nature grow itself. He only has to put in 10 days of human labor a year to maintain it but yields twice as much per acre as a conventional farm. "Gardening... (more)
