Squeamish about Organ Meats? Here’s some Healthy Solutions…

If you like our blog, please send it to your friends and sign up for new posts!

POST UPDATED FALL 2012

Many – if not most – of us did not grow up with organ meats – kidney, heart, liver (well maybe liver) tongue, brain, etc roasted on our dinner plate.   Although paleo and Weston Price expound on the benefits of organ meats (the Inuit Indians tossed the lean meat that we eat to the dogs…), I still do not find myself running out and gutting the first ruminant I see and tossing the tenderloin.

SUGAR – “Death, White & Sweet”, or, “I Thought the Hippies Were Nuts”

by Ravi

REVISED FALL, 2012

It’s 1975 and I’m in North Country Coop on the West Bank in Minneapolis – a naive pre-med student at UofM. Coop’s were pretty “seedy” back then – roughly tossed together and staffed by the real political anti-establishment animals – called hippies.

“Yea, man – that stuff is WHITE DEATH” barked the bearded, ever-so-slightly odorous co-op worker in his soiled white apron chatting energetically with another shopper. “People just don’t know – white sugar is government trying to dumb us down and manipulate us – just feed ‘em, White Death and you’ve got control!”

“Sheesh,” I though to myself, “what a wacko.”  I bought an odd-looking, lumpy  cookie, trotted out of the store and took a big bite.  “Plaaaaa!” I exclaimed, spitting it out on the sidewalk, the taste being what I imagined a mouthful of peat moss and gravel would offer. Sugar was definitely verboten in that hippi-hollow.

What is a Primal/Paleo Diet? DaiaSolGaia’s Thoughts…

by Ravi

UPDATED FALL 2012

Ravi and Jack eating out…

We realized that we didn’t have a post detailing what we would describe as paleo-primal type diets. Paleo-primal diets rely heavily on anthropological data and the accompanying assumptions with physiological, biological and genetic tidbits thrown in… and mix. The result is that we all have our opinions of the details while there are some central tenants that paleo/primal eaters agree on.

#2 Lose Weight

#3 Glow with Health!

Updated Fall 2012

Wanna be more successful losing weight?

Then get real.  Having foods around that are NOT part of your program - (ANYWHERE in the house or within reach) is tempting fate – or worse yet – tempting your questionable will power (you are over-weight after all, yes?…)

Success going Paleo/Primal to lose weight (Paleo/Primal diet explained here) is no different than success with any other venture in your life – you must decide, choose your path and put you mind and will to the task!  Happily, the wonder of the paleo diet is that, although there are “rules” on what NOT to eat, what you CAN eat is immensely satisfying, delicious, and you really do not have to “count calories”.

Getting “The Skinny” on Getting Skinny With the Paleo/Primal Diet

by Ravi

It takes a bit of mental gymnastics to “get” this one central premise (after a generation of bad conditioning) – but …

EATING DIETARY FAT AND MEAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU FAT!*

*unless (of course) you are stuffing down several Big Macs and a shake combining refined carbs, sugar and cheap, bad-fat laden, antibiotic-laden, grain finished Omega 6 drenched pseudo-meat “pink slime” all in one horrid meal!

The “Teeth-Rotting Diet” It’s What’s For YOUR Lunch?

To Hell With Bastardly Dentists:

Dental Healing with Paleo/Primal Diet Plus

by Ravi – UPDATED/REVISED FALL 2012

Many of us are conceptually incarcerated by decades of  indoctrination to modern dentistry’s revival-tent calls to sit in the dentist chair and “be healed” (and forfeit big bucks doing so).  Dental “care”, dental products and dentifrices are a huge, 100′s of millions of dollars a year business. We’ve been led to believe – like in so many other areas of our lives, that we need holy professionals, in this case the “dental care priests” to pray over us with their high-speed drills in order to keep our teeth past childhood.

It seems inconceivable to learn that, in fact,

our teeth CAN HEAL THEMSELVES!

learn how to NEVER sit in a dentist chair again – and still have great teeth!

Trolling for Farting Vegans & Nutritional Lessons Missed

by Ravi  - UPDATED/REVISED FALL 2012

I hope you all don’t think badly of me for this post – but I *quite accidentally* (really!!) ended up on a raw vegan gas/flatulence thread in the process of researching about gas caused by too much coconut flour. (My daughter was “symptomatic” after chugging a fresh coconut bread we made…)

But ya know what? Ya just can’t make up stuff as good as the comments I happened upon there! I was (at least momentarily) entertained and thought you might be too… ;-)

The basic observation is – if the things you are eating are not being digested properly and causing that much gastic and intestinal distress – would the intelligent person not reconsider the suitability of those particular foods for human consumption?

Seems not—–

So, before I air out my onerous, odorous sense of humor here, I will offer you an alternative to this slightly-sophomoric post – a more serious discussion HERE (
A Raw vegan diet is an unhealthy diet).
 
Although I stand behind the premise of this post – that the very abundance of gastrointestinal disturbance is the biggest hint that you are eating the WRONG foods the WRONG way,  if you stay, it’s your better sensibilities you risk…

Our Abused Oceans – Is Seafood Anymore a Choice?

by Ravi
My Aberdeen born and bred grandmother (NOT pictured here…) lived to be 96 – and was tiny but in sturdy health till the end. Aberdeen – before the North Sea oil boom, was a sleepy seaside village-town with the most impressive rows and rows of solid granite block houses.  My little grannie grew up eating a solid portion of seafood (thus her good health and long life) but for the rest, she ate the odd diet that passed for edible in Great Britain.

But now, in the dark mire of the BP oil spill, shadowing the Exxon Valdiz disaster of several decades ago, what is the state of our catch from the seas?
