How Much Fruit Should I Eat When First Starting Paleo?

More on this in a couple days, but that's all you need to know for now. You're A Unique Snowflake Our bodies really … Continue reading

Celery

Let’s All Stop Freaking Out About Carbs

When I was at the PaleoFX conference, we were given mostly meat to eat. I was grateful for the food, but I really like vegetables and fruit. So I went to a co-op and got some celery. I was chomping on the celery stalk as I walked through the conference hall and someone actually said to me, "Whoa, vegetables!" as if I'd committed some Paleo crime. There was such a vibe of carbs-are-the-devil at the conference that Dr. Emily Deans … Continue reading
