About 12 hours of sleep pre-paleo, I would only wake up if you dumped a bucket of water over my head :P Post-paleo... 7 or so.

I know, I know... but it's a pre-paleo craving that just won't quit. Starbucks has an evil hold on my Autumn. Does anyone have a paleofied version that is actually palatable. I don't need something sweet, just creamy, caffeinated and pumpkiny. I... (more)

A friend posted the link below when I was posting how excited I was that they were back. It's not paleo, but perhaps with some tweaks (stevia instead of sugar, throw some heavy cream in there instead of making it milk-based, etc) you might have... (more)

Today I was sitting having a coffee on the street watching the world go by. It struck me how unwell or unhealthy some people looked. You know just not vibrant. Next to where I was sitting there was a bakery with people trundling in and out. I used... (more)

Knowledge is the source of all wealth. When we apply it to tasks we already know, it becomes our new productivity, our new method of living. We then can apply the new knowledge to tasks and behaviors that are new, it becomes innovation and... (more)

I started eating a very strict Paleo diet for one month. Little fruit, no dairy, just mostly meat and veggies. Cooking with Kerrygold butter or coconut oil only. I really like eating this way and I plan on eating Paleo for a very long time. The... (more)
