Here’s an update to my previous post, “Precautionary Measures Against Potential Radiation From Japan – Iodine Supplementation.”

I now have my little radiation survival kit ready…. Keep reading…



As this thread on paleohacks comments,

“It seems like we are going to be struck by radiation any time now…”

I’d like to consider this an exaggeration, and there are a lot of people a heck of a lot closer to Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant than I am, in Vancouver, Canada. However, there are several things that give me pause: Keep reading…



I love to hear about celebrities who have gone paleo / primal because they have the potential to reach so many people. I was excited to see on Robb Wolf’s site that Eva La Rue of CSI: Miami is paleo! She also has a testimonial on the back of his book, The Paleo Solution:

“I am a firm believer in The Paleo Solution. I maintain a hectic schedule that starts early and finishes late. Filming a television series, maintaining my fitness, and being a mom can be harrowing some days. Since adopting a Paleo way of eating I look and feel better, and I know that I am setting a good example for my daughter.”—Eva La Rue, star of ‘CSI: Miami’

Eva La Rue’s paleo diet is being featured on the front page of the April 2011 issue of First for Women magazine (front page, article pg. 1, article pg. 2). Keep reading…

It’s been primalized and simplified for this week’s batch cooking lunch meal. If you want to spruce it up further, check out the original recipe. Otherwise, the adaptation below was adequately fancy for our liking, without taking up too much prep time. Keep reading…


Dr. Oz and the Paleo Diet

March 10, 2011

***UPDATE: Dr. Oz recently devoted half an episode to the Paleo Diet: The Paleo Diet Craze – April 22, 2013. ***

Based on this week’s Dr. Oz show with Gary Taubes, one could surmise that Dr. Oz is anti-paleo. After all, even though Taubes wasn’t promoting the paleo diet, Dr. Oz completely disagreed with his views on reducing carbohydrates and increasing fats.

The video clip above is from the Dr. Oz show about a month ago, where an audience member asked for his opinion on the paleo diet. His response makes me wonder if he realizes that the paleo diet is, generally speaking, low carb and high fat. Keep reading…
