Paleo Book Giveaway!!!

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – As some of you may know, I’m moving into a yurt soon. That means shrinking from 3,000 square feet to 300 round feet. And that means getting rid of ish! Let’s be honest—it sucks to move books. And now that I’m over four years into this Paleo thing, it’s time to admit that I’ll never […]… Read more

Cultivating the Well-Adjusted Male

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – As many of you probably know if you read more responsible Paleo bloggers than me, Paleo F/X went down last week, April 11-13, in Austin, Texas. It was the usual amazing hoopla, with friends, food, and fun. This was my fourth Paleo gathering, so I won’t retread all the ins-and-outs, but suffice to say, if […]… Read more

Dear Mother Earth News, Try Harder Next Time

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – Below is a response I’ve sent to Mother Earth News. It really is my favorite thing to read these days, but after last issue’s love letter to homemade bread and now a poorly-written article called “Wonderful Wheat” that tried to take a hard line against the anti-gluten movement, I had to speak up. ——————————————— Dear […]… Read more

Adversity Training, Part 2 — Kids

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – In Part 1, I went into some ways you can stop being a pansy. Now, it’s time to explore why that’s important—so you don’t raise pansy children. Remember this? (No? Did I just date myself?) Well, it’s unfortunately true in most things. Not necessarily in this straight-forward of a way, but let me explain. Just […]… Read more

Adversity Training, Part 1 — You

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – We are a bunch of pansies. Yeah, I’m talking to you. But present company included too, as in, me. What am I talking about? Oh, just how we are far less resilient, adaptable, and mentally tough than we were just a few generations ago. This phenomenon, this softening of the human creature, is at the […]… Read more

Review: Nom Nom Paleo’s Food For Humans

The Paleo Periodical

I hear ya: “WHAT?! Another Paleo cookbook!” Oh yes, but you’ll want this one. Besides, it has one of those cool fabric bookmarky thingies like […]… Read more

Food Self-Sufficiency

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – As I type this, I’m gazing out my window for the second day in a row at over 6 inches of snow that’s fallen. It’s beautiful and fun, obviously. But since I live on a steep hill, it also comes with some challenges. Yesterday, when the storm started, I made a quip on my personal […]… Read more

Back to the Land

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – Yes, I’ve become a cliché. I’m a dirty hippie girl in a little hippie town, and now I’m going to live in a yurt and get back to the land all 60s-style. Patchouli can’t be far behind. Too bad I hate patchouli. But the rest is true. I can’t remember how it all happened, but […]… Read more

Recipe: Mustard-Cider Glazed Pork Shoulder

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – I’ma just say this right upfront: I can take no credit for this recipe. I’m merely sharing what was a delicious baby born of the combination of this recipe’s flavors and Melissa Joulwan’s pork shoulder carnitas technique. See, I was looking for something new for my pork shoulder, and I had played around with that […]… Read more

Fan Mail

The Paleo Periodical
The Paleo Periodical – I received a letter today and I thought I’d share the correspondence. Not to embarrass anybody or anything, but because someone took the time to send me an honest account from their perspective and I responded in kind. Letters like this get to the heart of what we’re doing and why. We don’t have all […]… Read more
