generally, I don't think barefoot running is as good as it's made out to be.  Our bodies evolved to walk.  It was not until we started to develop footware did we become runners.  Yes, there are a few tribes, like the Tarahumara... (more)

Our bodies only synthesize things they *need*, otherwise it's a waste of energy. There are things we need but cannot synthesize.  So in terms of fats… we need omega-3 and omega-6 long chain fats, we cannot synthesize these,... (more)

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard.  Not paleo, but it's good stuff by a good company, and not absurdly priced

I am fully Paleo and I avoid processed and junk food as much as I can. I don't particularly miss any junk/processed food... except Tang that is. I feel nostalgic about it. Don't you think the rare Tang (say, once or twice a year) treat is that bad... (more)

Stressing out about drinking Tang a few time a year is likely worse for you then just enjoying it a few time a year. Just my two cents.

Just add almond meal until you get to your desired consistency. I don't have a recipe for meatloaf, as what I put in in changes each time.  1 pound ground beef, 1 egg, black pepper, tomato paste, fish sauce… mix and then add almond... (more)

I have a fluctuation in TSH, although my doctor is ignoring my previous results and saying "one high result doesn't mean you have Hypothyroidism". Ok, but what if it swings from 1.5 to 4.7 and back to 1 something again? My TPO was low at 9, and my... (more)

Creatine is fine, but follow the correct dose and make sure that you cycle it.   Prolonged use can affect your liver and kidneys

Hybrid wheat is wheat that has short stems, good yields, and higher resistance to  pests. Short stems nearly eliminate the problem of heads touching the ground in case of rain or wind, which generated crop spoilage. Higher resistance to pests... (more)

If you're OK with dairy there's always butter and ghee.  Seek out butter from pastured dairy sources to maximize Omega 3's.  Butter has some MCT's but not in the same concentrations as coconut oil.
