Herbal teas are not pseudo-drugs, they're actually very effective drugs for many ailments. Don't take my word for it, here's a lot of research for the most potent herbal tea, the Greek Mountain Tea, aka Sideritis:... (more)

This might be the case, since on Paleo we don't eat beans (not even traditionally-prepared). To me this became apparent via a proxy: I was craving for kale chips. For months! I'd go through bags of kale chips from Trader Joe's like they were... (more)
