I really appreciate all your guys' answers. Some thoughts: Dave Asprey (@bulletproofexec) had a shaman on his podcast last week that said coffee taken in a detoxed state commonly achieved through intermittent fasting can open neural pathways... (more)

Advertising? I would not eat them. Not because they are made of rye. Just because they look disgusting. There are so many healthier, better ways to eat vegetables and meat than spending money on some rye and flax wrap. You can use regular... (more)

My question is this: Based on scientific research and DIY biohackers are we reaching a upgraded paleo diet? A diet where we take the evolutionary biology of how we as humans process nutrition and tweak that to a superhuman advantage? Science is... (more)

Very good question. I tried a tweaked out paleo diet two months ago and I felt like I was one steroids for a month. I tweaked my food by adding B Vitamins to my diet in addition to cutting water from my diet and juicing all vegetables. I was hard... (more)

Kale is one for me. I eat it every day and feel like I wouldn't be as strong without it. I also need my two eggs yolks/day, and lately a pint of bone broth. I know it is mostly psychological and no doubt related to some fallacious magic-bullet... (more)

Quinoa. Cooking it in rice cooker with a frozen handfull of kale and/or spinach or peas with a little bit of lemon juice and vegetable, chicken or beef stock to replace water in about a 2.5:1 quinoa to liquid ratio ratio. I'd also steam salmon... (more)

Supplementing is one of the hot button issues of Paleo. From what I have read, the general consensus is that some need it more than others to heal from SAD or to be more "Optimal". So with that in mind what "Food Supplement" do you take to try... (more)

WAP recently posted a link to an article from The Autism File about research using camel milk as a treatment for autism. There are interviews with the doctors in which they suggest that part of the reason they see improvement in Autism symptoms is... (more)

I was watching sesame street with my son and it was an episode on super foods. The puppets displaying super foods were broccoli, cheese, banana, and a piece of whole wheat bread. It was all I could do to shut it off, but my son is only 3 and I'm... (more)

Hate to use the word superfood, but in this context I'm talkin about non-fruit & non-seed superfoods, suchs as spirulina, chlorella, maca, ashwagandha and other powders. For example, a teaspoon (7 grams) of maca contains about 5 grams of... (more)

We hear a lot in the media about this or that being the lastest 'superfood.' Soy is a classic case. However, on inspection, many of these foods do not turn out to be so super after all. Case in point, someone was recently touting purslane (a... (more)
