Loren Cordain, Ph.D. Response to Mouse Study

I have previously commented upon this single short term mouse study. You are correct in stating the obvious, nowhere in the original article did the authors indicate they were testing a “The Paleo Diet” but rather a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet in an unusual animal model (prediabetic New Zealand Obese (NZO) mice, rather than in humans.   […] The post Loren Cordain, Ph.D. Response to Mouse Study appeared first on The Paleo Read more

Zoo Animals Become Psychotic. You Are an Animal. Run.

Richard Manning, author of Against the Grain (2004), frames civilization as a human zoo that makes us all psychotic. Hunter-gatherers who observe domesticated humans literally think we’re crazy. A few important snippets: “Think of an animal in the zoo. It’s deprived of things that keep that animal going — the smells, the sights, the sounds, the instincts… the hunting. And they become psychotic. Literally psychotic. Read more

Paleo Challenges During the Holidays

The season of celebration, gift-giving, and tradition is upon us. Along with all of the fun and festivities, the Paleo dieter is faced with the challenges of maintaining a healthy lifestyle while sorting through the endless sea of desserts, sweets, and holiday treats offered on a daily basis.

Recipe: Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

Image img_1510.jpg

I’ma just say this right upfront: I can take no credit for this recipe. I’m merely sharing what was a delicious baby born of the combination of this recipe’s flavors and Melissa Joulwan’s pork shoulder carnitas technique. See, I was looking for something new for my pork shoulder, and I had played around with that carnitas technique before, and the results were awesome. So I thought, “Hmm…what if instead of Read more

Building a Paleo Intentional Community

This post originally introduced the Intentional Paleo Community Facebook Group August 22, 2012. The gist was to initiate work toward a theoretical framework, build a real-world community, and develop a template replicable by others wishing to do something similar. During my recent [failed] fatbiking trek from the U.S. to the Yukon/NWT border area of B.C. (don’t ask… yet), I had a lot of time to think. I also had a lot of opportunity Read more

Is Your Brain Hardwired for Junk Food?

While the title of this article may at first seem implausible (and somewhat scary), a new scientific study seems to show that an inborn preference for junk food is not only possible – it may be affecting more of us than ever could have possibly been imagined. For the first time in history, researchers for […] The post Is Your Brain Hardwired for Junk Food? appeared first on The Paleo Diet™. SOURCE: The Paleo Diet™ - Read entire story here. Read more

Food Self-Sufficiency

Image img_4262.jpg

As I type this, I’m gazing out my window for the second day in a row at over 6 inches of snow that’s fallen. It’s beautiful and fun, obviously. But since I live on a steep hill, it also comes with some challenges. Yesterday, when the storm started, I made a quip on my personal Facebook page that it was time once again for the game of watching cars attempt to get up or down the street. Because every year, people just have to Read more

Braised Beef Cheeks – Paleo Style

Image BeefCheeks_HDR1.jpg

This is my second attempt at cooking beef cheeks and even though the recipe still needs a bit of tweaking I think it’s close enough to deserve a post, especially considering that beef cheeks are not readily available.  And if everyone discovers how delicious they are I might not get another chance to try them!

Milk Allergies and The Paleo Diet

Image facebook.png

Dear Paleo Diet Team, In the 1997 work entitled “Food and Low Incidence of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) in Iceland” (L. Thorsdottir and O. Reykdal) have suggested that the incidence of IDDM is lower in Iceland than in other human genetic related nations of Scandinavia. Since milk proteins alleles frequencies in the Nordic cattle breeds varies and preliminary (at that time) results indicated that Beta Casein A1 was 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
