Taste should rule within bounds of course. For me it is vacuum first then French press and chemex drip depending on the time and situation. Early am Fr P. but later drip but after full dinner back to vacuum. Da Jim

Hi! I've been reading here for a couple of weeks now. I've been doing paleo for about a year now, and it's been great. I've lost about 100 lbs, and packed on 20-30 in muscle. For my exercise regimen, I walk 5 or more miles a day (I have two... (more)

I put up a post several days ago asking for thoughts on my (maybe) high cholesterol. I've since seen chatter regarding raised elevations of cholesterol in people using a French press to make their coffee which is a device I've used everyday for a... (more)

My LDL cholesterol jumped 50 points to 190 after two years drinking French press coffee, 2 mugs a day. When I discovered the alleged link, I switched to paper filter coffee and lost all 50 points in three months, a period so short the doctors... (more)

PCC is a food co-op in the northwest and in this month's newsletter they have featured an article about Paleolithic eating. Any thoughts from the community? Did they cover everything? http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/sc/1202/paleolithic_diets.html (more)

Oh shoot, the cat is out of the bag! Is this why the grassfed lamb, bones, and organ meat suddenly got more expensive and more picked over? Probably good long term for supply, but in the meantime looks like things are going to get a little... (more)

I have seen a lot of non-paleo "mom" or cooking blogs* lately advocating the use of fats - lard, coconut oil, etc. They may make a token statement that fat is not really the enemy, or even go so far as to link to the Weston A. Price foundation... (more)

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)

It is interesting research, however findings in Caenorhabditis elegans (a roundworn) cannot always be related directly to humans. We might have some similar genes but they can interact in different ways in humans, we are a wee bit more... (more)
