You can cook the bones till they dissolve and eat it all in an ideal world and it wouldn't be a problem - the minerals and nutrients in the bones would be beneficial. However, there is a problem due to pollution/ exposure of the animal to toxins... (more)

So the studies show better body composition for night eating and carbs especially. Using CBL or Carb Nite, how much time between your last bite and shut eye qualifies as night eating? That is, what's the min and max window here?
I generally feel better when I don't have that "stuffed" feeling just before going to bed. I had a large chilli/butternut squash meal last night, which I finished at 1930 and went to bed around 2230, feeling nice and rested. Other time I've not... (more)

I am starting to get into fermenting my own foods (yay for local produce!) There have been a lot of studies about fermenting sauerkraut, and how it has to go for several days in order to be properly fermented (aka, at 2-3 days, it doesn't have... (more)
I'm planning on fermenting 7 litres of raw organic goats milk in my 10 litre crock pot. If I fill it with 7l of milk how many tablespoons of grains would be suitable? And would it be OK to just leave it fermenting for weeks? Thanks! (more)

One day a week I usually go to town making 1-2 big items, prepping everything else so when it's time to eat I can go from stove to plate in about 10 minutes. My work is all over the place - I can have a 12-hour day or an easy day.. or something... (more)
How much time until one starts to see the effects of a gluten-free diet, assuming I'm gluten intolerant? The symptoms are chronic sinus inflammation.
One of the reasons I went to Paleo was to be happier, healthier, and YES, more durable. The kind of durable that has been on my mind recently has been related to Aging Well. I'm starting to realize that I will have to plan better for my later... (more)
The doctors gave up on me about 10 years ago, and told my beloved that I only had about 2 years left (I was born with a congenital autoimmune dysfunction), so make sure I was comfortable. I've since outlived their expectations by 8 years, put most... (more)
Just curious to see what kind of numbers we can get with a question like this. Comparing different Hacker's time devotion to nutrition to the time spent by doctors who actually give nutrition advice will be pretty interesting me thinks. I'm... (more)

A chest freezer full of grass fed meat saves me time shopping!
Since going paleo, I'm of course finding myself making a lot more food from scratch. I love cooking but am getting a bit tired of tedious prep work. The biggest source of this seems to be chopping. I have a mandoline which is great for slicing... (more)
