I am currently out of town for work related training and last night I gathered with some nice individuals I have never met. We drank wine and had conversations about numerous topics until 1am. It was a great time, however, this is very unusual... (more)

If living like a hunter-gatherer with regards to diet works, living like a hunter-gatherer with regards to socializing may also be worth considering. You may find this passage from "Limited Wants, Unlimited Means - A Reader on Hunter Gatherer... (more)

This one is for all those expert foragers out there. My back yard is now starting to sprout grass after a rainy March, and since we haven't mowed yet I noticed a corner of the yard is dominated by these tufts of longer, heartier looking grass... (more)

Throw them at the neighbor's wandering dog pooping in my yard? Make wine? Let the crows eat them? Make preserves and kill my friends with a Christmas "Gift"? Eat them myself? Cut down the tree? Ack!!! I have read all of the fructose/fruit posts... (more)

See if your local area has gleaners or a group like we have here: http://www.salemharvest.org/ which saves urban fruit from going to waste and gets it to the needy. Freecycle or Craigslist are good ideas too--I always see folks looking for free... (more)

There are a few "paleos" on message boards that I've seen that eat ONLY GROUND MEAT. ONLY. And if you question it, well Vilhjalmur Stefansson lived off of meat, so any meat will do. Not only do I find that unappetizing and psychologically... (more)

Hi guysSo I went to the eden festival in scotland last weekend (was a lot of fun), however eating paleo was soooo hard as there were no foods stalls that did anything paleo (it was all potatoes, pizza, cake and maybe the odd vegan thing like a... (more)

I happen to have a good local wild supply of beechnuts. They tend to be high up but it could be a fun challenge to use the climbing aspect of the gathering process as excercise. I have heard that if you roast them they are good but an acquired... (more)

I have found beechnuts [Fagus grandifolia] delicious raw or prepared. The problem for most of us is the erratic nature of production. In Michigan, where I live, they only produce large crops every few years, sometimes after 5, 7, or 8 (or... (more)

In paleo times, we probably spent a fair amount of time wandering around looking for resources, be it food, water, or materials for toolmaking or shelters. Perhaps time was even spent collecting materials for artistic endeavors like cave... (more)

Great observation. Grok didn't live an environment filled with so many consumer goods, but it is still in our genes. Part of the Paleo/Primal exercise plan is to do a lot of walking around outdoors, preferably not over-dressed so that one can... (more)

My grandpa used to find Morels in his front/back yard, in Indiana! So jealous, as I live in NYC and I'll have to drive to Jersey for a good spot I know. I love wild mushrooms! It's such a Paleo thing to eat/hunt. Or I supposed I should say,... (more)

Have any of you ever tried earthworms? Are the ones you find in your garden safe? I heard that it's best to have them living in applesauce (organic, no sugar added applesauce I presume would be best) for 24 hours before you eat them so they clear... (more)

I have a worm compost, and I think they are pretty clean, but strangely enough I have felt little desire to make a meal of the little guys. If I did, I would heat up some coconut oil or duck fat and crisp them up fast, then serve them with a... (more)
