Paleo Book Review: Sweet Potato Power

I will be the first to admit that, while growing up, I thought they were one of the nastiest foods in existence (next to dumplings and this stuff mom called ‘steak and gravy’…).  This was back when,  in my world, the only way anyone ate the orange things  was mashed Read more…

The “Additive Effect”: Artificial is NOT Intelligent

Pop-tarts, Doritos, Go-gurt, Vitamin Water…  The grocery store is loaded with artificially flavored, sweetened, and colored ‘franken-foods’ and we’re eating them up!  Waistlines continue expanding and the obesity epidemic is out of control.  What’s behind the increasing “weight of the world”?  Is it EPIC portions, constant access to food, lack Read more…

Baskets of Health: The Easter Bunny Goes Paleo

Oh yeah, it’s Easter.  The chocolate bunnies are out in force – ready to attack.  Jelly beans, peanut butter filled eggs, robin eggs (the ones that turn your lips funky colors – don’t ask how I know this…), and who can forget PEEPs…  Easter is the second largest sugar soaked Read more…

Paleo Diet: How do I convince someone to try it?

I received a twitter message last week that went something like this: “Robb, how do I convince my spouse to eat paleo? She has numerous diseases, is always miserable, but is resistant to change. Help” My response: “Divorce?” I doubt that person converted to a twitter follower! Now, I was Read more…

Paleo Book Review: Teach Your Kids to “Eat Like A Dinosaur”

One of the most common questions/complaints that I get from paleo parents is, “but my kids won’t eat this way”.  This results in said parents bringing less than paleo fair into their homes and often times eating it themselves.  These often too familiar actions are not benefitting anyone involved from Read more…
