I’m wrong, you’re wrong, we’re all wrong; and we’ve never been right.
Hopefully though, you’re just a smidgen less wrong now than you were a minute ago. A tad less than an hour ago. An inch less than yesterday. A foot less than last week, and a yard away from a month ago. Perhaps counting a year’s passing, you’ve added another dimension, such that you’re a football field less wrong. And considering where you first began your curious quest, another dimension still—a voluminous world less wrong. But there remains other worlds. And by the time you have all those other worlds nailed, we’ll perhaps know whether other universes really exist.
So you’ll always be wrong. You can call that unbridled skepticism all you want. I call it a curious quest for knowledge, combined with an awareness that there’s always more to know, and even more that we don’t even know we don’t know.
Every now & then I like to post up a particularly insightful and hopefully, motivational comment. So here’s Tim Maitski in our recent, revolutionary post in terms of Paleo Diet knowledge, The Hormesis Files: Who’s Afraid of Unrefined Sugar?
You continue to spur me on to keep looking into so many things. I’ve seen stalks of sugarcane at my farmer’s market and always wondered who would use that and how would you go about eating it? What could possibly be good about sugarcane? Now I find out that it’s a superfood and fresh squeezed sugarcane juice is a popular drink with health benefits in many places around the world. I can’t wait until juice bars offer it.
I always thought of honey as just sugar and should be avoided. I thought whatever extras that it had in it would be insignificant. Now I did a search and stumbled upon the Hibernation Diet where you eat a couple tablespoons of honey before bed. Found a discussion that reminded me of some of your first potato starch discussions. People taking honey at night were reporting sound sleep, vivid dreams and even some weight loss.
Here’s a good description of the honey diet. Basically a whole foods diet with resistance training and honey at night.
Also, my farmer’s market started carrying Tiger Nuts, the same ones that you recommend. I had bought some from another place because they were cheaper, but I have to say that the peeled Tiger Nuts are so much better. I don’t even have to soak them to have them be a very great snack without tiring out my jaw like the other ones did.
Thanks again. It’s funny. I started my nutritional journey three years ago when I read Loren Cordain’s Paleo Answer book. I blacklisted lentils, potatoes, honey—along with processed foods and sugar. I was amazed how much I didn’t know about all of the antinutrients in these foods. Now I’ve come full circle on some of these things. I continue to test everything out on myself and sooner or later I will have the perfect diet that works for me. This blog, especially with the great commenters, keeps me filled with new ideas to try out. Unfortunately, I’ll probably be dead before I work it all out. But it keeps life interesting.
