Cookbook Review: Everyday Paleo

I submit to you that it doesn’t even take going Paleo or Primal “everyday” to not get a wealth of good out of this book, Everyday Paleo. I have included it in my series of cookbook reviews…because it’s a cookbook. …But it’s more than that and I think, fills a very nice niche. In my last review,……...

Fiedler, Circuit Court, Branch 8, State of Wisconsin I’ve seen a bunch of hand wringing and outrage over this since it popped up, but why? Here’s the actual judgment. As near as I can tell,……...

Cult Paleo: A Family Story

Wheat: How About Against the Grain, and Zero Servings Per Day?

Time to recycle an image from a couple of years back. Now just let that sink in a bit. Gotta love what the combination of wheat leading to visceral fat accumulation does to estrogen levels in men. Man Boobs and Wheat Bellies While I’ve not yet read Dr. William Davis’ NYT bestselling book, Wheat Belly,……...

Paper Thin Chicken Soup

Part of what motivated my to review Paleo Comfort Foods earlier today in my last blog post is that I was cooking. I had something on the stove and I was waiting for it to get ready for further touch and attention. Chicken Soup. Now, I’m pretty sure that even if you go through every post……...

If You Want Someone Dead, Then Kill Them Yourself

I had a beef with Andrew Badenoch way back when over esoteric issues surrounding freedom, i.e……………anarchism. I really didn’t explore the issue with him enough before I got pissed off and basically ignored him. And then months later, the Ancestral Health Symposium happened, I met him in person, and consequently felt embarrassed that I hadn’t taken……...

Are You More Moral, More Benevolent and More Competent Than Any Politician? Then Act Like It.

[Original post title: Is Collectivism Relative?] At times I become totally disillusioned by the track the Paleo community seems to be taking, on pure momentum. Perhaps it’s just my perception. While the Ancestral Health Symposium was a tremendous breath of fresh air in this regard, by no means do I think it made even the……...

Is the Raw Vegan Movement Getting Healthier and Healthier?

I’ve kinda backed off attacking the raw vegans lately. For one, there were a number of posts back in the spring pretty close together, many with over 300-400 comments each, and with that kind of enthusiasm for a single topic, I just didn’t want to overly exploit it — having the blog turn essentially into……...

Let Freedom Ring! But How About For Reals? (A 9/11 Remembrance)

I’m staying away from the radio and TV today. If I’m to actually remember September 11, 2001 on the 10th anniversary of its shock & horror, then I propose to actually do that and not have it “remembered” for me by fancy images, editing, and tear-jerking stories of the remembrances of others. I know very……...

The Bullshit Archives

It’s reasonably clear to me that I have a good turnover in readers. I should expect that. I do expect that. While there are always those few who send me emails, letting me know that they’ve been loyal readers since even the pre-paleo days, even before I made this place exclusively paleo friendly, there are……...

See, Frank and I have a lot in common about how we think of this whole “primal” or “Paleo” movement….…...
