I’m Outta Here—Hang Gliding

I half heartedly considered putting up something on the blog last night. Went nowhere. Beatrice took me out for sushi instead. I had just put version 2.0 of the book to bed—off to the editor—and we’ll see what comes of it. I ended up working far more on V2 than V1. It’s done for me,…Read More

Man Alive! Chapter 9: The High Cost of Mindlessness

Here’s the post that kicked it all off. This is chapter 9 of 12, to give interested readers the chance to take on the free ebook chapter by chapter over the weekend, debate it amongst themselves, or even challenge the author who’s keeping tabs. ~~~ From: Man Alive! A survival manual for the human mind.…Read More

Dr. Garth Davis, Surgeon: I Warned You….

Dr. Garth Davis, after having—probably blissfully confident—posted comments in the original Forks Over Knives thread I blogged about (Doctor FAIL: Garth Davis, Bariatric Surgeon (and China Study Balderdash)) basically did the same blissfully confident, dismissive commenting on that post. Such as this: This is one of the funniest yet saddest commentaries I have ever seen. You…Read More

Coming Full Circle

I’ve tried a lot of stuff over the years. It’s so easy initially, because when you switch to real food in place of processed and fast, there’s a spontaneous reduction in caloric intake for nearly everyone. That’s why both paleo and LC work so well initially for the fat people out there. Amazing how switching…Read More

Blogging to Resume Shortly

Well, I’m two chapters away from completing version 2.0 of Free the Animal: How to lose weight and fat on The paleo diet. It’s actually been a lot more work than version 1 for me, for various reasons but mostly because I really want to improve it a lot. Anyway, that’s what’s been taking up…Read More

Man Alive! Chapter 8: The Integrity of Art

Here’s the post that kicked it all off. This is chapter 8 of 12, to give interested readers the chance to take on the free ebook chapter by chapter over the weekend, debate it amongst themselves, or even challenge the author who’s keeping tabs. ~~~ From: Man Alive!

Fat Bread: Third Time’s The Charm. Mission Accomplished!

Here’s the third—and likely final installment for a while—in my quest to make a decent bread…that not only tastes and acts like bread, but excels in terms of Paleo nutrition. Mission accomplished. Future posts will focus on sensible applications of this bread. For those still uninterested in bread, I get it. Why mess with a…Read More

Grains, Vegetarians, Vegans and Nutritional Density

Yesterday I posted about how well it’s going with the book and its 2nd Edition. Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 3 on grains, vegetarianism, veganism and a bunch of nutritional comparisons. This is first draft stuff, so it has yet to go to the editor or proofreading. Those who read the first edition will notice…Read More

Classic: Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad With Real Dressing

You know what the hell is funny? It’s googling for a proper caesar dressing recipe, only to find most of them with no raw egg yolk or anchovy. That is not caesar dressing. Not in this world. Luckily, I already know how. Ingredients: 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped 2…Read More

One For Those Who Don’t Like Me

I’ll sing the praises of tumblr first. “Those” get a brief mention later. I got a micro-blog off and running, as I trumpeted yesterday…and, well, let’s just say I’m impressed with the individuality and anarchy of the thing—as least so far as I’m seeing (exceptions always abound). Literally: there is everything there, as audaciously unabashed and…Read More

Fat Bread, Part Deux

Here’s part one, where the first attempt was made. While the results for that high-fat, low carb, moderate protein (from eggs, not gluten) bread were decent, I wanted to improve. A bit more rise, a bit less dense, and good adhesion, i.e., sticking together. Success! First, I want to relate something odd but very surprisingly…Read More

SamePlate.com: Meet Your Paleo, Primal, LC, or Caveman/woman Match

You already know Jeff Nimoy from the bread post (there’s another loaf in the oven right now—with mods—and it looks very promising). Anyway, in addition to being The Cooking Caveman, he’s also the founder of SamePlate.com, a dating site dedicated to initially matching people by their food and dietary preferences. Damn fine idea, if you…Read More

Animal Parts

Well, I’ve taken the tumblr plunge. For some time I’ve checked out various people’s tumblr posts and have always tended to like the micro blogging aspect of how most people do it (far more elegant than Facebook, a bit more panache than Twitter). Often, it’s just a photo or image, no ‘splainin. I’ve often wanted…Read More

Fat Bread: Paleo Bread Made From Fat

Ha, bet that got your attention. It’s not entirely true, of course, but you’ll see what I mean later. One thing I can tell you up front is that this recipe uses no seed, grain, or nut flour—and neither is it virtually all egg, or egg with cheese, like Oopsie Bread. Backing up a few…Read More

Won’t Get Fooled Again! Who? You.

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution Take a bow for the new revolution Smile and grin at the change all around me Pick up my guitar and play Just like yesterday And I’ll get on my knees and pray We don’t get fooled again Don’t get fooled again   The product of CAFOs…Read More
