Coconut Aminos, Soy Sauce and Bragg Liquid Aminos

Do you have a craving that only a drizzle of salty, earthy soy sauce can cure? The unique flavor of soy sauce or tamari (a version made without wheat) is hard to duplicate, but rest easy, dear Paleo umami lovers; there is a replacement for you. Coconut aminos have stormed the soy-castle as a Paleo friendly substitution. While not an identical swap, coconut aminos serve as a natural condiment that can be used as a simple dipping sauce for sashimi, … Continue reading

How to Improve Your Running Form

This post was written by Max Shippee, our resident runner and researcher of all things sweaty. "I wanted to get some new shoes so I can start running." "New shoes?" "Yeah. What should I get?" "How's your running form?" "My, uh, form?" "Yeah, have we looked at that yet?" "Um...I just usually run, I don't really think about it." "Maybe it's time we started." There's running, and there's running. People realize that there may be something to learning correct running … Continue reading

Is Gluten Sensitivity Real?

It seems that every week there's a new study that supposedly disproves something that I (and probably you) believe wholeheartedly. This week the study is about gluten, and the media is now posing this question: Is Gluten Sensitivity Real? Here are a few of the latest media headlines: "Being Gluten Free is Dumb - And Gluten Intolerance May Not Even Exist" "Being Gluten Free More Psychological Than Physical" "Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity May Not Exist" On a purely guttural level, I will admit that these … Continue reading

Do You Have Leaky Gut?

Leaky gut is one of those buzz words that gets thrown around a lot in the Paleo/Primal world. I'm sure it conjures some interesting mental images for people, as it's not exactly the most self-explanatory term. Whatever it is, it doesn't sound good... In any case, I bet you've wondered to yourself, 'Do I have leaky gut? If so, what does that mean, and what do I do about it?' Luckily for us, there are 2 guys who are dedicated … Continue reading

How to Combat Fatigue, Puffy Eyes, and Slow Metabolism

Two years ago, I was Paleo and healthier than I'd been before, but something was still not quite right. I was really tired in the mornings, I had puffy eyes, and I had painful breast tenderness for 2 weeks of every month. I wanted answers, so I went to my naturopath to have some tests done. He found that I was hypothyroid by conventional standards, along with some other issues, so I was put on thyroid support supplements from Apex Energetics, and … Continue reading

What IS Gluten?

In case you're ambushed on the street by a wiley reporter, I'd like to save you some embarrassment on national TV. This blog post will explain in simple terms what gluten is and why people are avoiding it. As a little background, Jimmy Kimmel recently did a pretty funny piece on his show where his reporters asked people if they were gluten free, and if they said yes, they'd ask them what gluten was. See for yourself how many of … Continue reading
