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)
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 don't live in LA but I'm going. You might try registering on the AHS social networking site here and see if anyone from SoCa is there to connect with.
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)
Ok, so I am really going to for a Psychic reading tonight. It was a christmas gift. I have never been and could use some ideas... What should I ask? What would you ask? Just for fun -Anything funny that is paleo related? It might be fun to... (more)
Don't ask anything. If they're truly psychic, then they'll already know what you want to know. :-P Yeah, I'm a smartass and a skeptic. It would definitely be a fun thing to try though, even if purely for entertainment value.
Thanks for the responses. It was a calcium issue. Increasing my calcium completely eliminated the gas. Ray Peat strikes again.
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)
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.
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)
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)
So, we all love (or soon will love) the paleo lifestyle. The question is remains where is the line you have drawn in the sand between pursuing optimal health and fitness, and being a crazy person who romanticizes the stone-age. I am all for... (more)
Does anyone know another way for cleaning your plate and eating all the yummy fatty liquid (butter, coconut oil, animal fats)? Other than licking your plate? Don't get me wrong, I don't think there is a better way than licking (if I wouldn't know... (more)
So I'm thinking of going into farming and I definitely want to have my farm focused on all things paleo. I already have some ideas- livestock centric with hardy "wild-type" breeds, grazing fields, fruit and nut trees, perhaps some vegetables or... (more)
Willamette Valley. Folks didn't call it Eden and undertake the arduous Oregon Trail in a Conestoga Wagon for nothin'. How close you are to population centers would be entirely a function of your budget.
I ask mostly because I am one....and so is nearly everyone in the NYC Paleo meetup. The meetup is full of analysts, statisticians, computer programmers, and web developers. Maybe our love of numbers and science is why we are so obsessed with... (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)
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)
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)
...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)
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)
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)
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.
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)
