Links, Quick Hits & Meatballs Again

~ As a GERD sufferer for many years, on prescription Proton Pump Inhibitor meds also for years before going Paleo and stopping them, I had been toying with a post on how to get off the meds. Well, someone else is now doing a series so those interested will want to follow along. Here’s part…Read More

Chicken Sous Vide with Tarragon Rosemary Sauce

Last night’s dinner using the Sous Vide Supreme. Chicken was brined in a weak solution (5 tbsp per quart of water) for an hour, sealed up with a pinch of sea salt & pat of butter, like here, then cooked at 146F for two hours. Click for the high quality version. Chicken Sous Vide The…Read More

Poor Poor Matt Stone

I think it’s time to expose some serious hypocrisy on the part of Matt Stone. I take no particular pleasure in it and frankly, had reservations about doing it, so sent out some email probes to people whose opinions I respect and received unanimous encouragement to move forward. One of the rules I try to…Read More

Peaceful People, Modern Society and Paleo Principles

I think a number of readers get a bit uncomfortable when we wander off the diet, health, conditioning and other closely related subjects on this blog. On the other hand, isn’t the Paleosphere replete with blogs and other resources devoted exclusively to diet, to recipes, to workouts, or some combination? I never wanted to specialize,…Read More

The Bavette Will Be My Downfall!

Once again I’ve wasted time trying to find Mark Sisson’s blog about flap steak or bavette. Wanted to give him credit, which this is, but also a link, which I can’t do. Alas, it was in one of his Insider emails. A stern email to Mark will follow! :). I am totally and completely in love…Read More

And Chris Gabel Rings In

I was going to include this in a link roundup I’m doing but then I thought nope, this really deserves it’s own entry, the roundup can wait a bit. You remember Chris, right? A mere shadow of his former self at 106 pounds lost in 7 months. He’s not done, yet. Via email. It’s been…Read More

Modern Paleo

I’d like to announce a great new resource that I hope you’ll check out and enjoy. My friend, Diana Hsieh, whom I’ve been aware of as an Objectivist philosopher since the mid 90s — and who emailed me out of the blue a couple of years ago to let me know she’d been reading my…Read More

The Primal Blueprint Push

One of the more rewarding aspects of this whole health & fitness venture and blogging about it has been making so many friends amongst other bloggers. What you may not always be aware of is some of the "back chatter" that goes on from time-to-time. One of those fellow blogger, email buddies is Mark Sisson…Read More

The Crock Pot: Dinner in 10 Minutes

I’ve done a few crock pot dishes lately and am really enjoying the simplicity. Basically, toss a few ingredients in over the space of 10 minutes, turn it on, and you’re done preparing dinner (or whatever). Another thing is that the last couple of times I’ve used it I get things started at 1pm in…Read More

Saturday Afternoon Rock Roots: Rush

While 2112 isn’t my favorite album, there’s this. I like the whole thing surrounding The Temples of Syrinx, and here it is, in two parts; 1976, B&W, and when they were all still long-haired hippies. I like Part II a little more, which I’ll explain after the show. Oh, and watch Lifeson tune his guitar…Read More

How to Eat Out With Care

Headed off to the cabin in the mountains in a bit. Sometimes that brings on a blogging whirlwind ’cause I love it. Haven’t been up there since Xmas/NY, and had a tree take out power (like, the whole junction box, meter & pole) in the interim but the insurance Co treated me very well and…Read More
