I am reading it right now, and can vouch that it is a great book for beginners (a.k.a. the completely clueless - lol). I had no idea that the book was only just published. I am very new to Paleo; as in #1 son gave me Rob Wolf's Paleo Diet book... (more)

Day 3 crappiness when restricting carbohydrates is known as low carb flu. Totally normal, it is what your body undergoes to switch fuel sources. Extra salt, water, and rest are called for. It sucks, but it will pass in the majority of people,... (more)

My goal is to not purchase any produce (except berries) from June - October of this year. I have canceled my CSA, I have all the leaves from my yard composting as we speak. I am going to make my garden my sole source of vegetables.

It takes very little coconut oil brushed through hair to condition it, and when using just enough to make your hands shiny (1/8-1/4 tsp.?) it won't transfer to anything else. You can use any oil though, like grapeseed, olive, sweet almond, etc.,... (more)

I thought it would be interesting to see the various responses. Ancestral eating varies from person to person, and can be confusing to a newb. My definition of Paleo is-- If the food on your plate can be found in nature just as it is (NOT... (more)

I look to traditional ancestral diets to guide my own, but I don't have a single pithy statement to define what I eat. I look at the history and relative merits of each type of food, and I consider how my body responds to it. Then I use that... (more)
