Need more evidence that the Standard American Diet is flat out BAD for you?  There’s a new documentary out that takes on 2 million years of evolutionary evidence to prove what humans need for optimal health.  It sheds some pretty unflattering light on the advent of agriculture and the inclusion of grains in the human [...]

Spend any amount of time in the paleo/primal blogosphere and you will quickly discover that there are two camps of thought regarding the use of dairy. I personally fall into the pro-dairy camp. I know that this is a big topic of discussion so I want to share my thoughts about it and why I [...]

Isn’t it funny how America’s long standing war on obesity has brought light to this major health epidemic but our country continues to get fatter and fatter?  I mean, just think about the last decade alone and all of the awareness campaigns, public service announcements, commercials, articles, documentaries, etc., etc. and yet instead of reversing [...]

Ever since I became primal I have literally fantasized about opening up my own primal fast food chain or living in a utopian society where the McDonald’s on every corner was replaced with some hip primal bistro with a drive through.  Wouldn’t that be awesome?  The fast food options that we have available now serve [...]

As I mentioned in the first post of this series, I got pretty ill for a while after going primal.  I felt so sick and tired that there were a few seriously close calls where I almost quit.  Of course at this point in my life, the last thing I wanted was to feel was [...]

My transition from the Standard American Diet to living primally has been met with many challenges.  When I first decided to make this change I became very ill and it almost forced me to give up my pursuit of this lifestyle.  I also had to figure out how to deal with social events, new ways [...]

SwissChard

In the summertime, one of my favorite backyard garden veggies is Swiss chard.  Not only is it delicious but it’s also beautiful to look at with its bright red stalks and dark green leaves.  Most of the time I sauté my greens with a little butter or olive oil, but it’s good to have a [...]
