Feeling so good I think it’s time for a new About Me page! So… I had a hideously tough year in 2018. I spent about two months thinking I had muscular dystrophy and was dying, but it turned out I only had the super-rare autoimmune disorder dermatomyositis, which still sucked a lot. Basically my immune system […]Read More New About Me
I’ve officially eaten 200 different paleo foods in the last few months! Ultimately it’s pretty cool to be able to look at a long list of food and see all the raw ingredients of everything you’ve eaten for months. My final list includes: 48 types of fruit, 68 types of vegetable, 32 types of meat […]Read More 200 paleo foods win!
Yes, we got an Instant Pot,and wow I seem to be using it almost every single day! It can pressure cook, slow cook, steam veggies and sauté. Not sure the sautéing function is that useful, (I suppose it would be if you lived in a dorm and this thing was your whole kitchen), but the […]Read More The Instant Pot

I haven’t tried beef liver yet, but there are two big ones waiting in the freezer. I have, however, now tried chicken liver mousse and actually enjoyed it. I’ve made two […]Read More Organ meat for cocktail hour

Wild Florida boar! So that’s the easy part done, coming up with another 100 paleo foods will definitely be the challenge. Here’s what I’ve already got on the list: Eating two hundred different foods challenge. A trip to the local farmer’s market furnished some items to put me up to one hundred: shrimp, rambutan, and wild […]Read More First 100 foods! And the hundredth was…
Current grand total: 219 This is certainly going to be a challenge but I’m going to see if, like the ancient hunter-gatherer cavemen types, I can eat 200 different types of food in the next six months of very healthful dieting. That’s really a lot of variety inside a limited paleo spectrum. I’ll add to […]Read More Eating two hundred different foods challenge
In the past I’ve really grudged time spent in the kitchen. I don’t like preparing food to cook, I don’t particularly enjoy cooking it, and if I only have to wash up two dishes afterwards that’s a win. I mostly ate things like avocado toast, stir-fries, salads, anything healthy but no muss no fuss. Well, […]Read More Cooking for real
