Food & Diet / How to quickly get the seeds out of a pomegranate
« on: August 24, 2009, 04:09:11 PM »
This is a very helpful article. Pomegranates are much tastier now that I can just eat a bowl of seeds by the spoonful.

Food & Diet / Stage one, but not eating during the day
« on: August 13, 2009, 05:53:33 AM »
My stage one is more like stage two. I am concerned I am not eating enough fruits and nuts during the day. Yesterday I only had nuts. I would keep these items by my computer, but then the Dietista voice booms in my head NO UNCONSCIOUS SNACKING. Is unconscious snacking a non-issue for this diet?

It may be the food. I have been keeping the nuts in the freezer to keep them from going rancid. Trouble is, now they taste like the inside of the freezer. And I seem to be very finicky about the fruit, if it is the least bit "old" (bruises, soft spots), I won't eat it. And I don't like putting it in the fridge, because I have sensitive teeth. I guess I respect that I'm as particular as I am, but it sure is inconvenient!

I admit I've started this stage one several times. I've never made it this far before--I guess practice makes perfect. The thing that I'm doing different this time is every morning I read the introduction and stage one. It helps me immensely to keep focused, going unconscious is the thing that causes me to go off the plan. I'll probably continue to do that through stage three and beyond until eating this way becomes habit, however long that takes.

I have found a website that facilitates people with common interests in a given geographic location to meet in person. And they have a paleo diet category.

Food & Diet / Recipe for Easy Greens
« on: June 18, 2009, 11:23:22 AM »
Get a microwavable dish, a large pyrex measuring cup does nicely. Fill it with water and microwave until the water boils. I carefully remove it from the microwave and throw in the washed greens. I have done it with swiss chard and spinach and this method cooks both perfectly--bright green, yet tender.

You want to eat dinner...

But it has been a long day and you are too tired to cook....

And besides, there isn't a single clean dish in the house....

No problem, just do what this person did.

Philosophy / The Environmentalist's Dilemma
« on: January 05, 2009, 04:04:41 PM »
Environmental groups urge people to eat a meat-free (preferably vegan) diet. This is because it saves resources such as energy, fresh water, and land that could grow more human food or land that could revert back to or remain wild land.

But when you take a longer view, agriculture caused all of these problems. So it follows that more agriculture is not the solution, but rather more of the same.

How does one live the paleolithic diet while being environmentally friendly? --And still being part of modern society. Is such a thing even possible? Does one do for the planet, or do they do for themselves and theirs?

Of course environmentally palatable options exist, but they seem to only be available and affordable to a dwindling number. How does it rest on the soul to know that you can eat basic foods for optimum health when others are stuck with a grain-based diet and nutritional deficiencies ?

Fitness & Exercise / We need more gyms like these!
« on: December 28, 2008, 08:53:15 AM »
This is a Gym in Madison, WI (lucky you, if you live there) that focuses on what they call "functional fitness" (what can you do vs. how big your muscles look).

here's their intro on youtube:

here's their main site:

4 daily workouts: http://www.monkeybargym.com/monkey-bar-gym-online/4-daily-workouts/

here's what I found most valuable from their site. If you are totally non-athletic but you want to be, they have videos that will instruct you on how to do an exercise or how to build your muscles to the point where you can do the exercise:
