    No doubt you've heard the recent news that has the archeological world all atwitter of the remains of a 1st Century Roman cargo ship, originally discovered in 2000, in shallow waters off the coast of Spain. News of a major shipwreck find always grabs my eye, because of a strong interest on my part (and a mild to moderate obsession on Mike's part) with the romance of discovering and excavating a shipwreck.

    A reader sent us a heads up on a recent Newsweek article by Anne Underwood, titled "Mmm Tasty Chemicals" about the upcoming publication of a sort of tell-all book about America's iconic junk food: the Twinkie.

  • 11/21/08--22:50: Heatlhy Strong Kids
  • About once a week I get a letter from someone asking if there is a good book on how to feed kids to keep them strong and healthy or to help them lose weight and get fit. There aren’t many and we even know of some good ones that couldn’t find a publishing home. With [...]

    As I’ve mentioned in these pages many times, I have an extensive cookbook library that takes up several bookcases in our homes–duplicated in many cases, since we split our time between two houses. I’m not sure of the exact count, but it’s up there. Guests to our home often ask if I really use them [...]

    Heading into 2012 means shedding a few holiday pounds that Mike and I accumulated on the “experiment” (see his blog) we undertook. So for the next several weeks we will be trudging down the nutritional holy road of near-abstinence from carbs and total abstinence from that carbohydrate gateway drug, alcohol. It’s only day 5 and [...]

  • 02/29/12--09:04: Make Your Kid a Paleo Pal!
  • If you have adopted a paleo diet (or even a sensible, but less purist form of low carb eating) for yourself and marveled at the change in you, have you ever wondering if you should encourage your kids to adopt the same nutritional structure? The answer is: of course you should! If you can’t figure [...]

  • 09/01/12--14:56: Practical Paleo
  • Seems there has been nothing short of a deluge of paleo diet books coming out lately and most of them are quite good, but one came across my desk that I think will prove exceedingly helpful to folks trying to adopt the paleo lifestyle in a modern world. It’s called Practical Paleo and the name [...]

  • 04/09/14--10:25: Primal Cravings
  • Among the many paleo cookbooks that have come out lately–and there have been dozens with the rise of interest in eating in sync with our ancient genome–one that I really like is Primal Cravings: Your Favorite Foods Made Paleo by Megan McCullough Keatley and Brandon Keatley. recipes are good, solid nutritional takes on such beloved […]

  • 05/07/15--17:00: Homegrown Paleo
  • In Disney’s movie Frozen, Elsa famously asked Anna, ‘Do you wanna build a snowman?’ For me, better lyrics would be ‘Do you wanna build a farm?’ and my answer would be a resounding ‘YES!’ Ever since I read Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma, I’ve longed to build my own ‘Polyface’ farm. I dream of happy chickens […]
