I'm sure this has been asked before, but do any of you have any tips for incorporating a paleo lifestyle into a hectic modern world, one with college and exams and due dates and a recovering stroke patient dad and an aging grandpa to take care of? (more)

One thing that I do is set aside a few hours every week to cook a bunch of food for the week. A bunch of chicken, cut up veggies for salads or quick fry, make some coconut or almond flour baking... that sort of thing. Then it's super easy to grab... (more)

Not necessarily related to food (though it can be) but your overall Paleo lifestyle - where do you draw the line when things are "too Paleo" for you. Obviously we all have to live in 2012 (or 2013 if you want to look ahead), so many of us have... (more)

Nothing is too paleo for me. I go out side stark naked to sharpen a stick so I can scrounge up some dinner. You can contact me via the Fairfax County Jail...

I was at dinner with my family and friends tonight and we got on the discussion of paleo (per usual since no one agrees with me) and they asked me," If we eat so poorly today, how come so many of us are living in to our 80s?" I had some pretty... (more)

Hi everyone! This is my first question, I'm new to paleohacks. I went back onto the paleo race, 3 months ago, agreeing that this was the best non-diet diet for my body and spirit, that I have ever done. That it is what I wanted to do for the... (more)

If you are talking about occasional treats, foods that are special or new, foods that are simply tasty and you want them from time to time, you should have no problem. If you're talking twice a day, not so good. Have you read anything from... (more)

Our society as it now is unprecedented in human history. Never have there been SO MUCH information/stimuli to process, never have been so many people surrounding us (not so bad in urban areas, but pretty bad in cities and developed areas). Never... (more)

I think there's this enormous pressure in the western world to be HAPPY all the time--and the message is that if you're not happy all the time, then obviously something must be wrong with you. Perhaps if we accepted the fact that life isn't all... (more)

Let's hack introversion... I've always been on the quiet side. To me, there are few greater pleasures (or comforts) than finding a secluded spot and curling up with a good book. (Extra points if that secluded spot includes a comfy chair and a cup... (more)

I honestly think that people are born as natural introverts or extroverts-- I see in my own children that two of them crave and thrive on social interaction and one prefers to curl up with a book, it's just intrinsic to who they are, and neither... (more)

I apologize if I'm rehashing a topic that has been addressed, but I've been mulling Mark Sisson's comments regarding other aspects of living in a manner more consistent with our ancestral upbring. As I think about my own life and look at the world... (more)

For me, peace and well-being is about accepting that life will inevitably be a mixture of pleasant and unpleasant experiences. No way around it. On days when I can accept that, I feel content no matter what my circumstances.

I just read an article at NPR that shows how Seattle is implementing a "Urban Food Forest" that will allow the local community to 'forage' for berries, apples, raspberries, etc. Have any of you noticed a recent increase in modern society's... (more)

IMHO, paleo is just one expression of a larger desire: the wish to reject the "advancements" in food production and nutrition of the last 100+ years, and return to a pre-industrial age (pre-1800) standard of eating (or at least in food... (more)
