I am the kind of person that rejects anything illogical. I just read some about deism and it seems that my belief can be best described as deism.I want to know what other paleo and evolution/science adherents believe here, and what they think... (more)

I have to eat bread at 3 meals every weekend and on a few other days throughout the year. What do you recommend for maintaining a Paleo-centric diet during the rest of the week to try and offset the obligatory carb intake each weekend?

You could also try spelt, teff, and eikhorn grains. They fall under kosherut rules if that's what your looking for. I personally tried spelt recently and had problems but I'm sensitive to a ton of foods.

I disagree that there is a huge spectrum of political beliefs in the paleo community. Most of the voices I've heard have been strongly libertarian. Maybe it's because they're the majority, or maybe they are just more vocal.

I had never used it fresh, but a few weeks ago I impulsively grabbed a package. I minced it finely and tossed it on my salad before pouring the o & v and I LOVED it. It's not a staple for me, but it's now a rotated favorite.

Has anyone ever encountered opposition to paleo on the basis of creationist beliefs? Just curious if there is ever backlash from people of the very literally religious persuasion.
