Image PaleoBlood.jpg

As Crossfit athletes and Paleo Dieters, we all know the benefit of tracking our results. We’ve got our log books to see how much our work outs and lifts have improved. We take pride when our clothes are too big for our new, leaner bodies. But how do you track your progress for what’s going on inside? We at Paleo Blocks have fallen off the wagon of late. Not only have we stopped posting here on a regular basis, we’ve also gone Read more

James Swanick – How Alcohol Is Making You Fat

This may not surprise you – but I am not exactly the biggest drinker. Occasionally I’ll get a little nuts and have some champagne (paleo police, please don’t arrest me!), but for the most part, I’m alcohol free. I know that getting rid of alcohol in your diet is not exactly the easiest task for some people (I, frankly, just don’t enjoy the taste of most alcoholic beverages) – but if you feel that alcohol is a Read more

Spreading Oaks Farms Has Happy Cows!

Image ifiwereacow.jpg

Remember that sinking feeling that came after watching Food, Inc. or reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma  or whatever it was that first crushed your vision of what American farms look like?  For me, it felt similar to the disappointment of learning that there’s no Santa Claus….what??? I may never fully recover from the Big Fat Santa Claus lie (yeah, I’m talkin’ […] SOURCE: following my nose - Read entire story Read more

Easy Roasted Chicken (Recipe from The Ancestral Table)

Image img_32571.jpg

It’s hard to believe, but my cookbook, The Ancestral Table, has been out for nearly four months. I keep finding myself surprised whenever someone tells me they have and enjoy my book; for some reason I keep assuming that only our little family regularly uses it as a reference. So I thought it would be fun to take a week off from my regular recipes and share one from The Ancestral Table, as a gentle reminder to myself that there are other Read more

A New Understanding of an Old "Obesity Gene"

Image Ob.jpg

As you know if you've been following this blog for a while, obesity risk has a strong genetic component.  Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) attempt to identify the specific locations of genetic differences (single-nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs) that are associated with a particular trait.  In the case of obesity, GWAS studies have had limited success in identifying obesity-associated genes.  However, one cluster of SNPs consistently Read more

Below is a response I’ve sent to Mother Earth News. It really is my favorite thing to read these days, but after last issue’s love letter to homemade bread and now a poorly-written article called “Wonderful Wheat” that tried to take a hard line against the anti-gluten movement, I had to speak up. ——————————————— Dear Mother Earth Read more
