Stop Following the Rules

My Paleo Rant Paleo Is Not A Rulebook. What exactly is “Paleo,” anyway? I mean the true meaning or essence of the word. It’s an important question. To establish what a person must do to “Be Paleo,” we must first establish what Paleo actually is. These days, it’s starting to look more and more like a religion. A movement which sits upon a foundation of unbreakable rules that allow no room for negotiation. We have a set of commandments that are never to be broken. Thou shall not eat refined carbohydrates. Though shall not consume dairy. Though shall not covet...

How Much Protein Do You Really Need?

I recently had a conversation with a close friend of mine. She is a vegetarian and I put together a nutrition plan for her a few months back. I know, a Paleo Nutritional Therapist making plans for vegetarians. Weird, right? Anyway, she hit me with some feedback. She was both thrilled and nervous all at the same time. “Justin, I am losing weight effortlessly. It’s just falling off! I couldn’t be happier. But…” Of course, there was a but.” I feel like I may be losing TOO much weight. I’m afraid I’m losing my curves. I still want to...

What the Heck is Bottarga?!

What the heck is Bottarga?! That was my initial reaction when I first heard about this little-known superfood. “Bo-to-what?!” A strange little square shaped bit of food that looks a bit like beef jerky… except orange. I’ll admit, I was bit skeptical, but definitely intrigued.  How Does Bottarga Taste?  Now, the first thing to know about Bottarga is, you don’t want to overdo it. It is definitely meant to be used sparingly. When it is, I’m yet to find a meal that it doesn’t add a boatload of flavor to. The smallest bit of this stuff packs a serious punch!...

Grass-Fed Gimmicks

Let me just start by saying that I am a believer. The research is out there and the results are in. Beef from grass-fed cows is a better nutritional choice than beef from grain-fed cows. But does anybody really know why? Well, of course, some people do, but not most. Let’s be honest, in today’s world of distraction marketing, BuzzFeed bloggers, and 140 character philosophers, the average person doesn’t spend a whole lot of time on research these days. That shouldn’t be an issue, assuming the average person has sources that they know and trust from which to get reliable information. Yet again, most people don’t. Here’s the problem...
