I’ve not read the below book, but I like the way it’s talking about food, because although I’ve needed to change my diet in all sorts of radical ways during this healing process I find myself in, I actually do have a practice around food that looks much like what this quote from this book speaks to. I am actually quite flexible within the restrictions I have no choice but to impose while my body heals. I am not generally afraid of food and I routinely introduce new foods as I heal. It’s been an amazing and lovely learning journey in so many ways. When people have very real food intolerances finding one’s way back to moderation and flexibility can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. One thing I’ve needed to do is not care what others think. I have some very real intolerances and there really are foods I cannot eat for the time being. That is okay. It is real. We can still find what flexibility means for us even if that is the case with some foods for us. … [click on title to read and view more]
I don’t tolerate fish oil in supplement form, nor any other Omega 3 supplement so I was thrilled to learn I do okay with flash frozen (right upon catch) salmon…(histamine intolerance has its challenges) and Omega 3 fatty acids are very important to heal the iatrogenically injured brain — anyway…this was breakfast a few days ago:
Piece of salmon on top of a bed of burdock root, garlic, parsley & artichoke hearts. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
As much as it seems to annoy some people, I do like tweeting what I’m up to in the kitchen. Sometimes people ask me for recipes. I generally don’t use recipes. I throw things together on the fly based on whims. Sometimes that works out real well. It did this time. So I patched together a recipe of sorts below. Clearly it’s not totally precise but if you like to experiment in the kitchen it’s enough to do that with. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
The power of willful ignorance. You think you’re immune? Think again.
Think you aren’t being fooled by advertising tricks?
Take a look at this so-called expert revealing food marketing’s secret weapon.
It’s really easy to always blame others about the ills in the world. The fact is we’re complicit in hundreds of ways. As we become conscious we feel the pain and spread ideas and the hope for a better way. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
I went out and harvested the “weeds” from my garden. Dandelion is good food and grows abundantly in my part of the world and many other parts too. I’ve been eating wild dandelion since I was a child.
The radicchio I bought at the grocery store.
I dressed the salad simply with olive oil and salt. Both the dandelion and the radicchio are bitter greens and so I like them dressed really simply like this. You can certainly add lemon or vinegar or any other salad dressing you like. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
This is a pretty good all round introduction on how to start making big changes to lifestyle. It takes time and so baby steps are most often quite appropriate and even necessary for long-term success. If you’ve wanted to make changes and don’t know where to start this video can function as a sort of intro to such ideas. Also contains links to other info and resources. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
If you thought you were doing the right thing by buying products labeled “natural,” you’re not alone. Which is why it may surprise you to learn that by law this label means absolutely nothing. It carries no definition, the FDA has never defined it, and it is simply used by the food industry to sell product, charge premiums and mislead you. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
I lost 85 lbs the way Chris Kresser describes below. To be clear my body’s needs have changed – I no longer eat strictly paleo, but paleo has taught me so much about my body…and I never made weight loss the motivator…it was always about getting healthy and learning to listen to my body/mind… Chris Kresser has, for a long time, been a wonderful part of teaching me how to do this.
Of note: I was bedridden and extremely ill, this journey was about healing for me, not weight loss. The weight loss was a secondary pleasant thing that came about.
For me learning what my body needs and how I eat has been a continuing evolution. One that is not over. I am not married to any one system, but I can speak to the fact that Chris Kresser and other sources of paleo information was a critical piece for me to becoming healthy again. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
So I julienned a butternut squash. Julienne peelers are pretty awesome. I use them with zucchini and sweet potatoes too. I intend to experiment further with other veggies as well. This is actually the one I have. I borrowed the picture to the right from google because I failed to take a photo. The picture of […]
