Survive vs thrive. You can survive without veggies, but not likely thrive without them. Toss beef, chicken, pork (8 oz each), salmon (4 ounces) and eggs (6) into Cronometer and see what numbers show up. That's nearly my calorie needs… but... (more)

In a word, fructose. Fructose signals our bodies to pack on stores for the winter. Fructose is available in large amounts only at the end of summer, when ripe fruits are abundant. So we pack on the fat to be able to survive the lean times. (more)

The veggies should have lactic acid bacteria already on their surface. Add some brine and you're gtg. I have two of the 1li Pickl-it jars. They work great. (more)
